Risperdal Lawsuits

Risperdal lawsuits have been focused on the side effect of gynecomastia, or the development of breast tissue in boys.  The basis for these Risperdal lawsuits is that the manufacturer of Risperdal, Johnson & Johnson, failed to adequately warn of this risk.


Most Risperdal lawsuits will contain a strict liability claim for damages based upon this failure to warn.  To find out whether you may have a potential Risperdal lawsuit, contact us now for a free case evaluation.

The lawyers at Drug Injury Legal Group are currently investigating the pharmaceutical drug Risperdal and are reviewing claims for Risperdal lawsuits.  There have been Risperdal lawsuits filed around the country, typically in federal courts.

Risperdal has an Extensive Litigation History

Johnson & Johnson has dealt with numerous lawsuits brought by various entities over the prescription drug Risperdal.  There have been federal investigations into its practices selling the drug Risperdal as well as multiple state lawsuits over the marketing practices associated with the drug.  These lawsuits were brought by federal and state prosecutors.  Currently, lawyers such as those at Drug Injury Legal Group, are investigating claims against the manufacturer of Risperdal for the following injuries:

  • Gynecomastia (breast tissue development in males)

Risperdal Causing Breast Tissue Development in Boys

The Drug Injury Legal Group attorneys have focused their investigation into Risperdal lawsuits on gynecomastia, or breast tissue development in boys.  In 2006, the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology published a study that showed an  association between breast tissue in boys and Risperdal usage.  The study found that Risperdal causes an increase in prolactin production which can in turn lead to breast tissue development.   Because of the gynocomastia risks, Risperdal should be used with caution by those who have yet to reach adulthood.  The warning for male breasts caused by Risperdal is potentially inadequate.

Risperdal Lawyers and Settlements

 Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

Warning against development of breasts is inadequate

Our Risperdal lawyers are seeking a settlement on behalf of boys who were taking Risperdal and developed male breasts. If unable to get a settlement from Risperdal manufacturer Johnson & Jonson, Risperdal attorneys should be ready to take the case through to a trial. Typically drug injury cases, like Risperdal, that do not settle will end up in Federal Court because the injured person and the drug manufacturer are in different states.    Risperdal is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, a New Jersey corporation.  If the injured party is a New Jersey resident, then a Risperdal lawyer would be able to file a Risperdal Lawsuit in state court instead of federal court.  If you or a loved one took Risperdal and developed male breasts, or gynocomastia, you could have a potential Risperdal lawsuit regardless of where you live.


Types of Damages in a Risperdal Lawsuit

There are different types of damages that can be awarded for injuries in any type of personal injury lawsuit.  For Risperdal, potential damages could be:

  • Economic damages (hospital bills, lost wages, etc.)
  • Non-economic damages such as pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages to deter such outrageous corporate behavior in the future

Our Risperdal lawyers will be seeking an adequate settlement for ourclients, but we will also be ready, willing and able to see the lawsuit to trial in the event that Johnson & Johnson does not offer an inadequate settlement..  Please contact us immediately to discuss s the possibility of a Risperdal settlement or pursuing a Risperdal lawsuit on your behalf.
