Risperdal Lawsuit Information
Johnson & Johnson has already paid millions to the federal government for illegally marketing Risperdal, and now the drug manufacturing company faces thousands of lawsuits filed by former Risperdal users who believe they have been adversely affected by side effects of the antipsychotic drug. The first Risperdal claim to be settled by J&J was brought in September 2012 by Aaron Banks, a 21-year-old who allegedly suffered gynecomastia side effects after taking Risperdal as a boy between 2000 and 2004. Banks’ Risperdal settlement raised the hopes of thousands of boys and young men across the country who took the antipsychotic Risperdal and subsequently experienced the abnormal growth of breast tissue.
Families across the country are filing legal claims against Johnson & Johnson, alleging that the drug company’s Risperdal antipsychotic medication caused their children to suffer male breast growth and other serious side effects. If you or a loved one took Risperdal in the past, and you have since suffered side effects like gynecomastia, diabetes, heart attack or stroke, contact a knowledgeable product liability lawyer to discuss the possibility of filing a Risperdal claim against Johnson & Johnson.
