What’s The Case About? Risperdal is an antipsychotic medication prescribed to treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, autism, and other mental illnesses. The drug can cause young men to develop female breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia. Nationwide, thousands of young men have suffered emotionally as a result and many have had to undergo surgeries.
Why Is The Manufacturer To Blame? The law requires drug companies to be truthful about the risks of their medications. When they hide important safety information to induce doctors to prescribe their drugs, it’s important that they compensate everyone they harmed. In this case, the drug company’s label stated that the risk of young men developing gynecomastia was less than 1/1000, when its own internal studies showed that the risk was significantly higher.

What did the manufacturer do wrong? The lawsuits allege they sold a product that was defectively designed and poorly tested. When information came out showing that its product was causing young men to develop breasts, it concealed the information and manipulated study data to make it appear that there was not a problem with the drug.
What harm was caused? As a result, thousands of young men have developed female breasts and have had to endure significant embarrassment, teasing, and emotional distress. Some have had to have surgeries to remove the breasts.
Who qualifies? Any man or adolescent who took Risperdal and developed gynecomastia (even if it has not been diagnosed) should call us immediately for a free case evaluation.
How much? It is very early in this litigation and it is difficult to predict settlement values. However, one of the factors that can make a case a million dollar case is very serious injuries. In these cases, many of our clients have experienced suffering that is so horrible, that we believe that these are very big cases. Another factor in determining the value of cases like this is the conduct of the drug company. Several juries have already found that the drug company failed to adequately warn the medical community of the risk of gynecomastia associated with Risperdal use.
Why join? This is an opportunity to be involved in a very important case. It’s important that the drug company fully compensate every person they harmed. If they are not held fully accountable for their bad conduct, they will be encouraged to do it again. When you join the lawsuit, you are joining with thousands of others just like you.

This helps keep everyone safe.
