Is there a way to sue an us-american company like Eli Lilly when you live in Germany?

Yes, absolutely. Speak to an atty in Germany who will decide whether it would be best to launch the action in the U.S. (usually Texas because it yields the biggest damage awards) or in Germany. It will depend on the substance of the action and which laws are best suited to prosecute. It's not as complicated as it sounds, actually. Multinationals like Eli Lilly are very well aware that they cannot contract privately out of the public law of the markets they enter. Although if the substance of the claim is business rather than medical harm, there may be a clause in the contract that says, for example, any dispute of a certain nature will be adjudicated according to the law of the country of one of the parties and in a forum in country A. A matter of efficiency, really.
