    Answered . You need to take your medical records and consult with an attorney familiar with these types of products liability claims. Ultimately, a medical professional will have to say there is a connection between the medication and your injuries. Time is not on your side to get those records and seek out an attorney in your area as soon as possible.

    Answered . As all of the other attorneys have suggested, here are some questions that would help: What other medications were you on? How long and what dosage was the Klonopin? Has any Dr linked up your fractures to the meds? age? any prior history or osteoporosis or bone problems?.... Please go see a products liability attorney in your area asap.
