Facts About The Elmiron Class Action Lawsuit
What is Elmiron?
Elmiron was introduced to the medical market in 1996 by Johnson & Johnson and
touted by the company as an effective drug for individuals suffering from bladder pain and associated disorders in the pelvic area of the body. The drug was taken with positive results by many for a prolonged period until some users actually began to develop vision problems. One common vision problem for many was the development of macular degeneration, which is the general loss of vision that comes with aging for those who suffer. However, macular degeneration is not the only problem injured victims were noticing:
- Pigmentary maculopathy
- Macular retinopathy
- Retinal deterioration
- Various atypical maculopathy
Each particular case of Elmiron damage can be unique, but there are some primary symptoms that many users experience gradually. Those difficulties can include but are not limited to:
- Reading difficulties
- Difficulty adjusting to light and darkness
- Viewing close objects
- Dim vision
- Lost vision in specific spots in a vision field
What Elmiron Lawsuit Attorneys Must Prove
The primary responsibility of attorneys in product liability cases is proving a valid causal relationship between the particular injury and the use of the product over a prolonged period. Pharmacy and physician prescription records typically serve as documented evidence of a medical issue, but evaluation of records regarding diagnosis and prognosis are also very important. Testimony from treating ophthalmologists and other eye care professionals may also be commonly used as further evidence of the claimant’s vision problems.
