Share Article

The complaint filed on June 9, 2020 in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex County, names Janssen Pharmaceuticals, and several other Johnson & Johnson entities as well as Teva Branded Pharmaceutical Products R&D, Teva Pharmaceuticals, and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., as the defendants who manufactured, marketed, and distributed Elmiron.

Levy Konigsberg LLP and Napoli Shkolnik PLLC have filed a products liability lawsuit against the manufacturers of a prescription drug Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) for, among other things, allegedly failing to warn plaintiff Valerie Hull of the potential risk of developing serious eye and vision-related injuries.

The complaint (case number MID-L-003646-20) was filed on behalf of Valerie Hull, a South Carolina resident, whose case was documented as “patient zero” in a published 2018 study conducted by Emory Eye Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Mrs. Hull is represented by two nationally known attorneys (Corey Stern of Levy Konigsberg LLP and Hunter Shkolnik of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC) who have teamed up in other litigations, including jointly leading the representation of thousands of injured children in the ongoing Flint Water Crisis litigation.

The complaint filed by Stern and Shkolnik on June 9, 2020 in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex County, names Janssen Pharmaceuticals, and several other Johnson & Johnson entities as well as Teva Branded Pharmaceutical Products R&D, Teva Pharmaceuticals, and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., as the defendants who manufactured, marketed, and distributed Elmiron.

If you or a loved one has been prescribed Elmiron and are experiencing any type of vision impairment, we encourage you to contact us.
