How Do I Join a Risperdal Class Action Lawsuit for Boys with Gynecomastia?
The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential claims for boys and young men throughout the United States who have been diagnosed with gynecomastia or male breast development that may have been caused by side effects of Risperdal.

Although such claims are commonly referred to as a Risperdal class action lawsuits, claims are actually being pursued by our lawyers as individual injury cases. The impact of breast development from Risperdal will effect each individual differently. Therefore, damages can not be pursued through one class-representative, as would be occur in a class action for Risperdal.
Find Out If Damages May Be Available Through a Risperdal Injury Case.
In each individual case, financial compensation may be available if our lawyers can establish the link between Risperdal and gynecomastia diagnosed in a boy or young man.
A number of Risperdal gynecomastia settlements have already been reached in cases filed by individuals who have developed breasts after using the medication, and several juries have returned substantial damage awards in specific cases as a result of the drug maker’s failure to adequately warn about the risk of male breast growth.
In July 2016, a Philadelphia jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $70 million in compensation in one Risperdal case filed by the family of a boy who experienced male breast growth after he started using the drug when he was five years old.
While the outcome of this and other early “bellwether” trials are not binding in other cases, they highlight the extent of liability the drug maker faces for placing their desire for profits before consumers safety.
Confidential consultations are available to help determine if you, a friend or family member may be entitled to pursue benefits for a Risperdal injury. After contacting our law firm or requesting a case evaluation on-line, you will be contacted by a representative to review the circumstances surrounding the claim, including symptoms of breast growth that may be caused by Risperdal, as well as any treatment or damages that have been received.
Requesting a free case evaluation does not form an attorney-client relationship, and there is no obligation to hire our Risperdal attorneys to pursue a claim on behalf of yourself or your son after speaking with our office. The request simply begins the review process. If we determine that you may be eligible for compensation through a Risperdal class action or individual case, it is your decision whether to hire our law firm.
