Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
No, Elmiron vision cases will not become class action lawsuits. Elmiron lawsuit claims are likely to be consolidated as a national MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where a specific settlement is factored for each plaintiff based on the specific injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff. We have reason to believe that successful Elmiron eye lawsuit claims will yield significant compensation for damages. This process increases the efficiency of processing vast numbers of similar cases and builds consumer leverage against a large multinational corporation such as J&J.
How much time do I have to file an Elmiron lawsuit?
Most states have Elmiron lawsuit time limits; however, the majority of all persons having developed eye problems or vision loss from Elmiron will fall within those time limits if they contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.
Who is most at risk for developing vision loss or eye damage from Elmiron?
Anyone taking Elmiron is at risk for macular degeneration as a result of taking the toxic drug. Preliminary research shows that 24% of patients who have taken the drug for fifteen years or more experience Elmiron eye damage. At this point, researchers do not know exactly how much Elmiron may be safe or where the threshold of toxicity lies. If you take Elmiron and are experiencing any vision disturbances, it is advisable to consult your doctor.
Does it cost anything for you to review my case?
We will always listen to your circumstances and give you our analysis of your case without any cost or further obligation.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even lifelong, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective product, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
