How to Know About Elmiron MDL Class Action Lawsuits
Plaintiffs in Elmiron lawsuits will be grouped into different settlement tiers based on the severity of their injuries. There may also be a points system used to determine how much each plaintiff will receive. The top tier will be for plaintiffs who have sustained the greatest extent of impairment. Lower tiers will be for plaintiffs who experienced less severe impairment.
In order to file an elmiron lawsuit lawyer, a patient must have taken the drug for at least six months and suffered from a side effect. In addition, the plaintiff must have documented proof that they took Elmiron. This proof can come from the prescribing physician’s records or from dispensing pharmacies.
The number of Elmiron lawsuits is increasing as the company faces a number of new claims. In November, there were 622 lawsuits filed. In October, there were 580. Meanwhile, 80 plaintiffs filed suits in state courts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. These lawsuits will likely continue to rise.
