I am saddened to hear about your situation and my heart does go out to you.
Since your stroke occurred in 2008 and it is almost 2012 now, there may be a problem with the Statute of Limitations. However, depending on your individual circumstance, there may not be.
You need to contact an attorney immediately to discuss your case and its details. Most attorneys will provide a free consultation for these kinds of cases.
I agree with the previous answer. There are several issues that would have to be addressed should you decide to bring a lawsuit. I believe it would be necessary for you to sit down with an attorney to fully address those issues. The main issues I see have to do with whether your claim would be barred because you have waited so long and whether there is any nexus between the Celebrex and your stroke. I would suggest you contact a personal injury attorney for a consultation. Best of luck to you.
I agree with the other comments. I would emphasize that you should seek out an attorney immediately to determine if the deadline for filing a claim has passed. Good luck to you.
like the other answering attorneys i too am sorry for the health issues you are having. like them, i also believe there may be a statute of limitations problem but indiana like most states has a "discovery rule" which can extend the time. you should promptly contact an indiana lawyer that does medical product liability cases. we do not and off hand i do not know specifically who does. you might call tom hastings in indy as you are relatively close to indy. he might or might have a name. also you might try the indiana trial lawyers website. i seem to recall there were alot of highly publicized issues with celebrex a few years ago. good luck and i sincerely hope your heaqlth improves.
