Can you confirm who gave the initial diagnosis?

Please also expand on having to take injections for 5 years under duress of police arrest. Do you have a past history of violence and who administered the injections?

Based on the information you’ve provided it is difficult to say if there is a claim to be had, and in any event the statute of limitations for making a claim is 3 years which it seems has passed now so you may not be able to make a claim.

I am sorry I cannot provide more positive news.

I would be grateful if you would accept my answer and provide a positive rating so I can get credit for it. And if I can I will be happy to answer any follow up questions at no extra cost
