Help If You’ve Suffered Gynecomastia from Risperdal

For informational purposes only. We are no longer accepting clients for this litigation.

The drug increases the body’s store of prolactin, the hormone responsible for breast growth and lactation in females. Male breast growth, or gynecomastia, is rarely a medical problem but it can result in shame, derision, and undue suffering for young men, as it can cause not only breast development but milk secretion as well. Gynecomastia also has many negative psychological effects, such as lower self-esteem, mental health, and social functioning.

Risperdal has been the subject of multiple controversies and disputes, and as a result, the FDA issued a “black box warning” on the drug—its strictest caution. Boys who have suffered from male breast growth while taking Risperdal may be entitled to compensation through a Risperdal breast lawsuit (family members as well may receive compensation).

Taking legal action for health issues after Risperdal use

Risperdal (risperidone) is an antipsychotic drug that has been found to cause unusual male breast growth in adolescent boys and young men. It is used to treat schizophrenia, Bipolar I Disorder, and autism in children and adults by altering the body’s hormonal balance.

While it’s understandable that you might find the prospect of filing a lawsuit overwhelming, in the case of Risperdal breast growth lawsuits it’s a direct way to recover the compensation you may deserve.

You or your loved one may require lengthy, complicated medical care, and extensive therapy. These cases are extremely complex, but our experienced team of drug safety attorneys will walk you through the process of filing a Risperdal lawsuit step by step. Our workers’ compensation lawyers know what it takes to prove your case. We can help you gather complicated evidence, such as medical records, relevant workplace documents, and even photographs and videos to help prove your case.

As part of our service to you, your lawyer will

  • evaluate your case and help you understand your options
  • start investigating your claims, gathering evidence to prove your case and identifying who was responsible for the injuries you suffered
  • determine the compensation you might be entitled to
  • handle paperwork and negotiations on your behalf and keep track of important deadlines

An attorney can also represent you in negotiations with the pharmaceutical company and their insurance and legal representatives, so you don’t have to deal with them. We can negotiate for a fair settlement on your behalf or, if necessary, fight for your rights and maximum compensation in court.

How can we help you?

While that depends on several factors, filing a lawsuit is a direct way to get the compensation you may deserve—and to hold the company accountable for the safety of its medications.

Our Risperdal claims attorneys believe those affected by gynecomastia may be entitled to compensation.

You could recover damages for

  • past and future medical bills
  • loss of enjoyment of life
  • loss of consortium (loss of comfort, care, and society)
  • emotional distress
  • pain and suffering

  • lost earning capacity
  • out-of-pocket expenses
  • psychological trauma

How can we help you?

You pay no upfront fees to have us represent you

If you or a loved one has suffered gynecomastia from Risperdal, the damage isn’t just physical and emotional; it’s financial. OnderLaw avoids adding to your stress because we don’t expect any advance payment. We work on a contingency basis. 

That means there are no upfront costs for our services. In fact, we don’t take our legal fees unless we recover compensation. If we don’t win, you don’t pay. 

So you can just focus on your recovery.

We don’t just take on cases, we fight causes

OnderLaw strives to make a difference by fighting for ordinary people who were harmed by the negligence of others or by dangerous products, and by holding the big corporations that manufactured these products accountable for their carelessness. 

We take on the challenge of fighting those companies not only to make sure clients are compensated for their suffering but to change the way products are made and regulated for the safety of future generations.

Jabar Gaddie

For them to have already have met for settlement talks in my case is quite impressive. I have never had any communication issues with them. They are quite thorough and have no problem updating you on your case, just give them a call. Be proactive in your communication with them and patient as they fight for us. I understand concerns regarding the time frame, I often daydream of being financially secure and providing a better life for my family, that day will come. I trust Onder Law.

Suzanne Reynolds

I have nothing but confidence in Onder Law Firm. I’ve had the honor of meeting several of their staff at a social event and my fiance has since signed with them to handle a claim against a company. What alot of these people who have left bad reviews about them fail to realize is that their types of cases don’t get resolved overnight, they have a massive caseload on top of an already delayed court system, and they’re not going to call you just to say they have no update on your case They are going up against billion and trillion dollar companies who have an endless supply of resources. Be patient and let your attorneys do what they do…… THEY WILL WIN FOR YOU AND THEY WILL WIN BIG. They’ve never hidden the fact that the process will be long. But it WILL be worth it.

They are so friendly and caring. I trust them. They are doing the right thing for me and my family.
