I am trying to find out about possibly pursuing a suit (a class action suit would be preferrable) against Bumsteer & Co. for the misdiagnosis that has lead to me being disabled due to nerve damage.

Has anyone ever even looked into this?

There seems to be a mountain of evidence against them in the form of the many conflicts of interest, as well as the published papers from several years ago in which the fab four (Steere, Datwyler, Wormser & Shapiro)had written about the existence of a treatment resistant chronic form of Lyme disease.

And now, with Pam Weintraub's new book, "Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Disease Epidemic", as well as the movie, "Under Our Skin", more fuel has been added to the fire.

I really think it would be worth pursuing and from a personal perspective, I am seeking some form of justice for the great crime that has been committed.

Any comments/suggestions?

I definately agree, and if there is anything I can do to help feel free to let me know. I've been thinking of doing pretty much the same thing.

I wish you much luck in finding an attorney to do this. Let me know if you find one to take the case.

I've approached a couple or personal injury lawyers. They just don't seem to think there is any money in it for their 33.3% of the case.

Both thought I was a crack pot when I laid out the case to them. Mainly because -- how could something iike this be happening in the USA?!

Where could we find the best attorney for this type of suit? Maybe with enough willing to be part of it...we might succeed.

It's not about the money, but I guess you have to hit the pocket, so atrocities like this will NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never thought of suing anyone in my life, but I would over this. Trouble is, I am not sure who to sue.

I was tossed around by so many doctors when I went to them with the chronic fatigue, aches and pains, and the moments of depression that go with it. I don't think they were neglegent, I think they were just ignorant to the possibility of Lyme.

I am in Florida, so they think Lyme is not possible here. I was born and raised in NC which still isn't really "Lyme Country" but we are finding out that there is Lyme everywhere.

My biggest problem is that my daughter was born with Lyme, and I am as sure of that as I was sure that something was wrong with me.

The next problem is that I can't work, and no one here understands/acknowledges the disease.

So, the only people I could think of to sue would be the CDC or whomever is in charge of creating the guidelines and getting the information out to the public.
