A: An Oregon attorney could probably advise best, but your question remains open for a week. In terms of your question asking for help, a likely response may be that you would need to reach out to law firms to discuss in further detail. Firms that handle cases involving medications will look at an individual's medical history, their reason for using a drug, their usage of drug, warnings on drug packaging, resulting injuries, correlation between drug and injury, and other factors. It would be difficult for anyone to offer you a meaningful analysis based on this concise description - aside from the fact that your question could open the door to issues that attorneys are not qualified to render opinions on, where expert medical or pharmaceutical opinions are needed. You could reach out to law firms to see if it is possible to arrange a free initial consult. I wish you good luck in recovery from your stroke.
