Newport Beach, CA -- February 5, 2016 (FPRC) -- Risperdal is an anti-psychotic drug used to treat mania, bipolar mania, schizophrenia and more. The drug has been widely prescribed despite the allegation of having unfortunate side-effects, including causing Gynecomastia, in which male users of the drug develop female breast tissue, greatly exacerbating the self-esteem and mental health issues that they have been taking the pills to help. As a result of recent rulings against manufacture Johnson & Johnson, scores of litigants have retained The Ledger Law Firm in the last thirty days alone seeking justice against Jansen Pharmaceuticals for significant irreversible injury caused by Risperdal. They have just launched a new website, ELawsuit.Info, to help people find out if they are entitled to compensation related to a Risperdal Lawsuit.
The website explains the background to the allegations, the precedents set by existing individual claims, and includes a contact sheet so individuals can quickly receive a professional evaluation of their suitability to make a claim. In February of 2015, a Philadelphia jury ruled in favor of a plaintiff who claimed Risperdal spurred the onset of gynecomastia. The jury's verdict ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $2.5 million in damages.
It is alleged that the drug's maker, Johnson & Johnson, did not provide users with adequate warnings about Risperdal's risks. Many of those who have taken Risperdal also allege that Johnson & Johnson also failed to perform its due diligence in terms of researching the possible side effects of the medication. Individuals who believe they have been negatively impacted by Risperdal are encouraged to visit E-lawsuit.info for legal information.
E Lawsuit Info also explains how such side effects are possible - the breast tissue development is due to the drug’s alleged stimulation of the hormone prolactin. The Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology reported that risperidone, the generic version of Johnson & Johnson's Risperdal has the potential to cause the onset of gynecomastia.
Ledger Law’s Risperdal attorney Emery Ledger, who is leading the Risperdal Litigation, explained, “These cases are heart breaking. Many young boys were taking Risperdal to help with depression and other mental issues and the resulting side effect of growing female breasts have exacerbated that depression tremendously. It is clear that legal recourse for compensation to pay for hospital bills, surgical costs, pain and suffering as well as other damages is within reach. Gynecomastia is therefore emotionally, physically and mentally punishing to the most vulnerable in society. The website is our resource to help those people find all the information they need to make the first steps to getting the compensation they deserve.”
About E Lawsuit Info: E Lawsuit Info is an online resource center created to help those seeking legal reparations for damage done by the pharmaceutical anti-psychotic and anti-depressant Risperal, manufactured by Johnson & Johnson. The website is regularly updated with the latest information on successful claims against the pharma company, and advice on how individuals affected may qualify to claim.
