    I agree that it is unlikely someone from the Department of Justice attempted to contact you. You might want to try contacting the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General. www.ag.ky.gov.

    No quality personal injury lawyer would answer that question without actually meeting with your boyfriend, getting his medical records and talking to his doctors. There are a lot of factors that go into evaluating a case. I would suggest you contact an attorney as soon as possible to talk about his case.

    Tad’s Answer

    An attorney would need a lot more information to be able to answer your question. If you believe you have a legal malpractice case, as well as your case against Conrail, you should contact a lawyer in your area as soon as possible. They will be able to talk you through these issues.

    Tad’s Answer

    It is really impossible to evaluate your position based upon the limited information you have given. Most of the time a class action is a good way to proceed when each individual claim is minimal, but there are a lot of damages when adding all of the claimants together. You should contact an attorney directly about the specifics of your case.

    Tad’s Answer

    You possibly have a case individually, but not as a class action. Because of the time period since you last we given the drug, I suggest you contact an attorney about your case immediately. You must file a lawsuit by the end of the statute of limitations or you will automatically lose your ability to recover for injuries if you could even show they are related to the drug.

    Tad’s Answer

    Your attorney should be giving you a plan of action, including what dates he or she anticipates things will happen and keep in regular contact with you. That being said, I typically don't work to settle a case until a client is done treating. It sounds like you might be in one of those situations where you need treatment, but can't afford it. That is a difficult spot.

    I think your best bet is to call your attorney and ask to go into the office and meet with him to get comfortable with where you are going with you case.
