    Answered . If you're question is whether you can still sue the doctor or the pill company - it would depend on how much time has passed since you treated with the doctor or was prescribed/took the pills. As for whether you would have a successful case - more facts would need to be known before a determination can be made.

    I would suggest you contact an attorney in your area to discuss further.

    Best of luck.

    Answered . You should contact a local attorney, but your case will be a tough one. You have been on the pills for a very long time. Even if your attorney finds an expert who says that you should not have been on the pills for such a long time - the claim may be barred by the statutory limitations period. Good luck.

    Answered . The statute of limitations on medical malpractice is 2 1/2 years after the offensive act, and for a product liability claim 3 years, though the starting point may be tricky. Obtain a consultation with a local PI attorney to discuss meaningfully.
