Beovu Injury Lawyers in Texas and New Mexico
Beovu is a prescription medication manufactured by Novartis that was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in October 2019 to treat wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our Beovu injury attorneys in New Mexico and Texas represent clients who were injected with the medication but were never warned about the potential vision side effects.
In February 2020, the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) shared an update with its members about reports of vasculitis in patients who took Beovu, which is administered by an injection into the eye.
Occlusive retinal vasculitis is a condition that occurs when blood vessels in the eye become blocked. The condition may lead to blindness.
Beovu lawsuits in Texas and New Mexico claim the drug’s manufacturer failed to warn patients and doctors about potential vision side effects.
If you have suffered side effects or injuries caused by Beovu use, contact our skilled personal injury lawyers in El Paso, Texas, and New Mexico today to learn how we can help you hold the manufacturer liable for your complete damages.
What Types of Injuries are Associated with Beovu Injections in Texas and New Mexico?
Beovu injections have led to severe side effects throughout New Mexico and Texas, including both temporary and permanent injuries to patients who were injected with the medication without knowing the full risks associated with its use.
Beovu’s original prescribing insert listed several vision-related side effects of the drug but did not include warnings about retinal vasculitis and retinal occlusion.
Symptoms of retinal vasculitis include:
- Altered color vision
- Blurred vision
- Floaters, including spots or streaks in vision
- Scotoma, including partial loss of vision or a blind spot
Current Beovu vision injuries in lawsuits include:

How Can Novartis Be Held Liable for Beovu Injuries in Texas and New Mexico?
Novartis, the Beovu manufacturer, did not include warnings about the specific adverse events associated with its use until June 2020 nine months after the drug’s FDA approval.
Novartis put patients at risk of vasculitis, occlusive retinal vasculitis, and blindness by not warning them about the potential for these events to occur.
In February 2020, FDA approved Novartis’ label change to include “additional safety information regarding retinal vasculitis and retinal vascular occlusion.”
By that time, the damage had already been done to thousands of patients.
If you were one of them, we want to hear your story and ensure your voice is heard, so you can seek justice from the manufacturer.
