Risperdal is a prescription drug primarily used for the treatment of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and to help manage symptoms of irritability in autistic children.
Risperdal (Risperidone) and many of its generic versions have been linked to serious side effects, including breast development in males, Gynecomastia, heart problems, diabetes, stroke, and more. Therefore, injuries resulting to a patient after taking the prescribed medication does give rise to a Risperdal lawsuit.
The Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. law firm for dangerous drugs is currently filing Risperdal lawsuits for patients suffering serious side effects while taking the medication.
If you or someone you know suffers from any of the side effects described above, then you may be able to file a dangerous drug lawsuit against the defective drug manufacturer.
Am I Eligible To File A Risperdal Lawsuit?
The following criteria needs to be met in order to be considered a candidate to file a Risperdal lawsuit:
- Usage of Risperdal or generic drug as a minor (ages 17 years or younger).
- Usage of brand name drug (Risperdal) for at least 30 days.
- Requires formal diagnosis of gynecomastia before filing in court.
- Cannot be a Michigan resident.
There are two types of lawsuits a patient can file when filing a Risperdal lawsuit claim.
The first type of claim is joining the Risperdal class action lawsuit. A class action lawsuit is brought by a large group of people or when a large number of individualized Risperdal claims are represented by one lawsuit.
Class action lawsuits can be beneficial or detrimental to your case depending on the type of injuries resulting, and the settlement you are seeking to compensate for your injuries. This is due to the fact that you are “grouped” in with everyone else, and your specific injuries do not stand out in the crowd, which could result in a much lower settlement.
The second type of lawsuit is an individual lawsuit. This is where the injured patient files their own individual lawsuit against the drug manufacturer, in this case Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. for their injuries suffered.
