Thousands of Lawsuits Filed by Risperdal® Injury Victims

Pharmaceutical companies are required to test their drugs for safety prior to releasing them to the public. However, drug side effects are often discovered after patients begin to suffer serious injuries.

Thousands of Risperdal® drug injury lawsuits have been filed by patients harmed by Risperdal. The drug is typically prescribed to patients to treat psychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. But some young men who take Risperdal develop a condition known as gynecomastia—the development of abnormally large male breast tissue.

According to Injury Lawyer News, the lawsuits filed on behalf of patients who suffered Risperdal drug injuries claim that the company that manufactured the drug, Johnson & Johnson, failed to provide consumers with ample warning of the gynecomastia risk. Plaintiffs are seeking damages ranging from reimbursement for medical bills to compensation for mental anguish and loss of consortium.

If you or a male loved one developed gynecomastia after taking Risperdal, the Indiana drug injury lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys want to help. Our legal team is standing by to answer your questions, so call (800) 33-33-LAW to get a free case consultation today.
