Recent Risperdal Verdicts & Settlements
Risperdal verdicts and settlements: So far there have been two in favor of Risperdal plaintiffs and one in favor of Janssen Pharmaceuticals of Johnson & Johnson.
A Philadelphia jury has awarded a young man $1.75 million for damages from disfigurement and mental anguish, even though he continued to take Risperdal after the label change in 2006.
The Risperdal trial that took place in February 2015 awarded plaintiff Austin Pledger and his family $2.5 million. Pledger, who is now 20, was prescribed Risperdal when he was eight years old to treat symptoms of autism. In his teenage years, Pledger developed size 46 DD breasts.
The third case found in favor of the defense, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, rather than plaintiff William Cirba. Although the jury determined that J&J failed to warn of gynecomastia risks, no damages were awarded because a direct link between Risperdal and Cirba’s breast growth was not established.
