Elmiron Maculopathy Lawsuit

Millions of patients have been prescribed Elmiron to treat a bladder condition called interstitial cystitis (IC). There is credible evidence that Elmiron causes forms of maculopathy, a condition that affects the retina. Early symptoms include blurred vision, dark spots, trouble focusing, difficulty reading, and other impairments. The potential risks of Elmiron were known as early as 2015, but drugmaker Janssen Pharmaceuticals did not change the product label for Elmiron until mid-2020. If you or a loved one took Elmiron and have been diagnosed with maculopathy, you could be owed compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.

QUESTIONS ABOUT MASS TORTS

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have questions about whether you have a case or the timing involved with taking legal action. Here are answers to what many of our clients want to know.

Who can file a mass tort claim?

Our attorneys will take care of filing the legal documents required for your claim. From a legal perspective, though, the following parties can file a civil action in this area:

The victim if they are an adult with the mental capacity to do so

The victim's parents if the victim is a minor

The person who has power of attorney for the victim if the victim is incapacitated

The victim's spouse, parent, adult child, or another beneficiary if the victim is deceased

Do I need to file by a certain date?

The deadline for bringing legal action is called the statute of limitations, which varies by state. For example, the timing could date back to when the injured party received the diagnosis or when their symptoms first began.

That's why it's important to work with lawyers who know how to hold large companies accountable. At Cooper Elliott, we understand the complex legal requirements involved with filing a claim, and we know what it takes to win.

How do I know if I am eligible to file a claim?

You start by talking to us. When hundreds or even thousands of people have been affected by the same issue, large companies hire teams of lawyers to protect their own interests.

You don't have to be a legal expert or a medical expert to link your health issues to a specific product. Our firm works with top national experts who research potential connections and who can explain your situation in simple terms to a jury.

This is not something to do on your own. Make an appointment to talk to the experienced attorneys at Cooper Elliott. During your free consultation, you can tell us about your situation, then we'll work with you to determine if there is a legal case to be made and the different ways we can approach it.

What is the average settlement for a claim like this?

Whether your case settles out of court or goes to trial, your attorney will seek compensation for everything that was lost as a result of the company not taking action.

Depending on the details of your specific situation, this can include:

Medical costs

Lost wages

Physical and emotional pain and suffering

Punitive damages if the responsible party acted intentionally or with gross negligence
