Medical & Pharmaceutical Injury FAQ

Answering Your Questions After an Injury or Illness

Thousands have suffered adverse 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 severe side effects that could follow as a result of taking a specific 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 is our mission as drug injury lawyers: take harmful companies to task. If you have sustained a medical or pharmaceutical related illness or injury, you are likely to be living with hundreds of questions and concerns. Such questions are best answered by a legal professional familiar with these claims.

“They were just so understanding and they got it. They got that we lost our child, they got that no one else probably loved our child like we loved our child, and they understood that. They said ‘We’re going to look at this and do everything we can to try to get your family some kind of justice.’”
