Gynecomastia Claims and Lawsuits

Briggle & Polan, PLLC is actively investigating potential cases of male breast growth among users of the antipsychotic drug Risperdal (Risperidone). Used to treat people with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, the drug has been linked to a number of incidents of enlarged breast tissue in young men since it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1994.

Today, more than a hundred lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson for the development and manufacture of Risperdal. If you or someone you love have used the prescription medication and now suffer from gynecomastia, we urge you to speak to an Austin Risperdal lawyer today. Our legal team may be able to help you file a lawsuit for compensation.

Many patients who suffer from gynecomastia will need surgery to remove the breast tissue; some individuals will even require mastectomies.

We are sensitive to the fact these cases can be both traumatic and embarrassing for the individuals who suffer from them, which is why we are committed to handling your case with the privacy and care that you deserve at this time.

Do I have a Risperdal lawsuit?

The first of many Risperdal lawsuits was settled by Johnson & Johnson in September of 2012, but there are more than 100 cases out there that still require attention. Many of these lawsuits allege that the company failed to adequately research and / or warn of the effects of Risperdal. In fact, since releasing the medication, Johnson & Johnson has reportedly faced a number of legal issues concerning the promotional tactics used to market Risperdal. The company came under a lot of heat for illegally marketing its product for off-label uses that were never approved by the FDA.

If you suffered from breast enlargement or any other serious side effect while taking Risperdal, you may have a case. Our lawyers are ready to review the details of your situation completely free of charge. If you have a lawsuit, we can help you begin proper legal action. At Briggle & Polan, PLLC, your case will be handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will pay nothing unless we have secured a favorable settlement or verdict on your behalf.
