A: A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for five weeks. No one here could answer your question as to whether you have a case. A doctor would need to evaluate the impact of what you suffered as a result of taking the medicine you mention.

You could reach out to med mal law firms to see if it's possible to set up a free initial consult. If there was significant and lasting impact from the medicine, a law firm might want to retrieve your patient records and look further into the matter. If the damages were limited to the brief and passing ordeal during the test, with no permanent damages, that could be a different matter. If you reached out to law firms, that would be the most reliable way to answer your question. Good luck
