Big Verdict in 1st Risperdal Trial

Posted on - Friday, February 27, 2015 under Dangerous Drugs & Products

Pennsylvania Jury Awards $2.5 Million in Risperdal Case
In the first trial of more than 1,250 cases pending in Philadelphia courts, the jury returned a verdict against Risperdal manufacturer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals in the amount of $2.5 million. The Plaintiff, in this case, took Risperdal to treat behavioral problems associated with autism. He developed gynecomastia, which is a condition where males develop enlarged breasts. Gynecomastia is painful and can require surgery. The amount of the verdict speaks to the jury’s shock that Janssen Pharmaceuticals failed to warn young men and their parents that the gynecomastia side effect could occur.
