Risperdal is a powerful prescription antipsychotic medication. What is most disturbing about the drug is the fact that the drug’s manufacturers—Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc. —illegally marketed the drug before FDA approval of the drug was finalized, and strongly encouraged the use of the drug for treating children. Assertions have also been made that J&J concealed key information about dangerous health risks and side effects associated with taking Risperdal, such as substantial weight gain, diabetes, risk of stroke and gynecomastia. If you or a loved one has taken Risperdal and suffered harm as a direct result, you need a Risperdal attorney who will advocate on your behalf.
If taking Risperdal has harmed you, you may have a cause of action against Johnson & Johnson or/and Janssen. To recover compensation for your losses, medical expenses and the harm you have suffered, you must prove that these major pharmaceutical companies acted negligently, and that you have directly suffered harm as a result. Proving negligence and damages can be difficult to do, especially when the defense is armed to the teeth with high-paid, big-shot lawyers. By hiring an experienced defective pharmaceutical attorney, you will be represented by someone who is committed to fighting for you. A Risperdal attorney will inform you about the legal requirements for filing your claim, and will offer you guidance concerning proving negligence, and will work hard to negotiate a fair amount of compensation for your injuries.
