Risperdal lawsuit cases have been filed claiming that Johnson & Johnson Company and its subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc. hide info from the public regarding the dangerous side effects of taking Risperdal drug.
Plaintiffs have alleged that the manufacturers deliberately misled the consumers about the side effects of drugs and improperly marketed risperidone for off-label use causing gynecomastia condition (abnormal development of breasts in males), lactation in girls, diabetes, movement disorders, strokes and death in the elderly.
Those patients who are injured by Risperdal may be entitled to seek compensation for adverse side effects including gynecomastia problem, lactation or painful or swelling breasts while taking medication. Possible damages include lost wages, pain and suffering, disability and the psychological trauma caused by the medication.

Johnson & Johnson Company has agreed to settle a small number of Risperdal breast growth cases that were set for “bellwether” trials in 2016, and has been hit with some substantial jury awards for withholding information about the potential Risperdal side-effects. However, the drug maker has not reached any global settlements and continues to indicate that it will defend the cases and estimate whether to settle on a case-by-case basis.
There are no set Risperdal settlement amounts or calculation of damages each boy will be entitled to receive.
