An Elmiron lawsuit is a claim arising from a person who took Elmiron and later developed maculopathy or other serious vision problems. The Elmiron lawsuit is an active lawsuit with claims against Janssen Pharmaceutical for knowing about the risk for eye damage but failing to adequately disclose this to the public.

Who Qualifies For An Elmiron Lawsuit?
Lawyers are accepting cases from people who took Elmiron for at least two years and suffered vision problems, especially if they were still using Elmiron from 2018 to the present.
You must have sustained vision problems while taking Elmiron or within one year of stopping treatment. For example, if you stopped taking Elmiron in 2012 and got a diagnosis of an eye condition in 2013, you may qualify.
Injuries in Elmiron lawsuits include:
- Blurred vision
- Degenerative maculopathy
- Halo vision
- Macular retinopathy
- Macular/pattern dystrophy
- Reduced night vision
- Retinal pigment epithelium atrophy
- Unilateral blindness
- Bilateral blindness
- Vision impairment
- Vision loss
If you have suffered from any of the above while taking Elmiron or shortly after stopping Elmiron, you may qualify for an Elmiron lawsuit. A class action attorney can help determine if you qualify for an Elmiron lawsuit.
Status Of Elmiron Lawsuit
As of August 13, 2021, there are more than 497 Elmiron cases pending in federal and state courts across the United States. The litigation is still in the beginning stages and there will likely be over 1,000 cases by the end of the year.
The cases are now moving forward with discovery and new cases are emerging each day. As the case gains more publicity, attorneys expect the litigation to grow.
On September 30, 2021, Judge Martinoitti will hold a “science day” to allow Elmiron attorneys on both sides to educate the judge on key scientific materials by providing an overview of the medical and scientific issues pertinent to Elmiron and the plaintiffs’ allegations of eye injuries and blindness.
The Elmiron trial is set to be held in January 2023. However, it is likely that a settlement will be reached before this time.
