Elmiron Lawsuit Eligibility

Do I Qualify?

Our lawyers are looking for people who have been taking Elmiron for at least two years and have suffered vision side effects following their usage of the drug within a year's time. If you have developed a vision problem or eye condition within a year of taking Elmiron, you may qualify for a lawsuit with our firm.

Maculopathy

Maculopathy is an ocular disease that can lead to vision loss by deteriorating the back of the retina, an area known as the macula. Early side effects can include difficulty reading and having trouble centralizing vision. By 2018, research had shown Elmiron's negative effects and toxicity on the macula, leading to irreversible vision impairment and blindness.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals

Elmiron's producer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, is being accused of failing to accurately warn Elmiron users of its potential vision side effects. The drug has shown evident signs of toxicity all the while being on the market since the 1990s. Our firm is currently representing those who have suffered irreparable vision loss and other side effects after using Elmiron for at least two years.
