I am taking the medication Requip..which has bad side effects. I have been on this medication for the past 2 years. Suddenly I began to gamble and lost all of my yearly salary. My home is in foreclosure status and I lost my job due to taking money to feed my addiction. Can I sue the company for pain and suffering and lost wages?
You can only sue for pain and suffering when it's a personal injury matter. You don't have a personal injury (accident or incident with injury) case.
You can sue for lost wages if what is said about you is not true, the person saying it realizes it is not true, you can PROVE you were harmed financially by the untrue statement.
What that was said was untrue and how were you financially harmed - you weren't hired for a job based on this statement alone, something along those lines?
The standard of proof is difficult and it appears to me that you were guilty of misappropriating funds.
- Or am I misreading this?
