“What Should I Look for in Hiring an Elmiron Lawyer?”

How Our Dangerous Drug Attorneys Are Handling Elmiron Claims

Additionally, the damages can range anywhere from compensation for medical bills to diminished earning capacity.
For claims involving potentially dangerous or defective drugs like Elmiron, attorneys often file a mass tort. This type of suit allows the court to assess each plaintiff’s injuries on an individual basis, which is extremely important because every person reacts differently to medications. Even though each plaintiff took the same Elmiron medication, their damages will be analyzed separately.
Potential injuries associated with Elmiron include:
These injuries can result in serious long-term consequences, including full or partial vision loss.
