Medical & Pharmaceutical Injury FAQ
Answering Your Questions After an Injury or Illness
Thousands have suffered negative side effects as a result of defective drugs and medical products. Often, medical manufacturing companies will release drugs and products onto the market that have not been adequately tested. Sometimes, known risks are not publicly stated so doctors and patients alike are in the dark about the serious side effects that could follow as a result of taking a certain drug or medical implant.
$76.6 Million Won in Risperdal Case In one of these cases, our client began taking Risperdal as a young child when the drug was only approved for use in adults. As a result, he developed female breasts. Our cross-examination revealed documents linking Risperdal to abnormal breast tissue growth—documents that were hidden from the public. These previously hidden documents allowed us to fight for a significant recovery, citing Johnson & Johnson’s failure to inform prescribers and their patients. The jury agreed. They handed down a $76.6 million verdict, an award more than 20 times larger than the previous 4 Risperdal awards combined.
Unfortunately, it is common for medical and pharmaceutical manufacturing companies to market their products even while knowing the serious health risks they could pose. These companies can and should be held accountable for their negligent actions. That's our mission as Houston drug injury lawyers: take harmful companies to task.
