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.

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

    I worked with Adam Richards and his team. They were empathetic to my situation and extremely professional. I don't know what I... would have done without their expert guidance and counsel. Adam really knows his stuff, and it was clear he had an excellent rapport with all who assisted in the case. Adam's communication abilities were next level. I never had to worry about getting ahold of him when needed. I know he and his team will continue to knock it out of the park for all future clients like they did for more

    I am so glad I found cooper Elliot. My attorneys Jon and Adam helped me through the entire process. After a traumatic experience... in my life I was confused and in pain. They worked tirelessly to become familiar with all the details of my story and represented me in a way that made me more able to process and understand the trauma myself. This was huge for me, while there’s still healing to do, I can do that work now instead of staying in a purgatory of cognitive dissonance. They didn’t just win justice for me, they are a significant part of my healing journey. They were validating, non judgmental, honest, and more

    Jonathan Bond handled a personal injury claim for me quickly with maximum results. He’s pleasant and enjoyable to work with, as... well as compassionate.

    I honestly struggle to find the words to describe how incredible this firm is, especially Jeffrey Kenny and Sean Alto. 7 years... ago, my family started a journey through a nightmare. When the criminal justice system fell woefully short, Jeff agreed to take on our incredibly challenging and lengthy case, with no other reason than that it was the right thing to do, and he believed we deserved justice. There were so many times when I would have understood if they walked away, but they refused and vowed to get us the justice we deserved, and almost 7 years later, they have given my family just that. I will never, ever, forget what they have done for us. We were never just another case. They made us feel like we were their ONLY case! Thank you will never come close to the gratitude and respect I have for Jeff and Sean, as well as for Cooper Elliott. They will be superheroes in our home, forever!read more

    Adam Richards is the best attorney I have ever met. He is responsive and very patient (I had a lot of questions) and he truly... cares. He fought hard for me and he stands up to the bully. he is not afraid to take on anyone. Anytime I hear someone who has a legal issue I go out of my way to recommend Adam. He is unlike any attorney I have ever met. He is compassionate and he always answers his phone. There is no way I would have got the results I received with any other attorney. He was a bulldog in my case and really went to bat for me. Words cant express how grateful I am to him. His actions personally affected my life in a very positive way. He protected me in so many ways I couldn't begin to name them. It is a great feeling when you know your attorney outmatches the other party's attorney and it is more
