I need to know if I have a lawsuit against the Manufacturers of Phenobarbital.

Asked over 1 year ago - Greensboro, NC

I was prescribed the drug as a child for seizures that were caused by getting the Flu shot and MMR shot at the same time. Both are incubated in egg yolk which I'm allergic to. The medication destroyed the enamel on my teeth, called Amelogenisis imperfecta, as a child and an adult. I'm 27 now and my teeth are falling out. What can I do?

    Answered . Retain a local defective lawyer who will ascertain whether the product was unreasonably dangerous; whether side effects were not disclosed; whether the manufacturer knew or should have known that the product would cause these effects; whether the product was designed for long term use.

    Answered . Consult with a local medical malpractice/products liability lawyer. I'm not aware of any pending litigation concerning this drug. Again, consult with a local lawyer to determine your options under North Carolina law. You may have an issue with the statue of limitations. Good luck.
