Recent Risperdal Settlements
The makers of Risperdal have settled with the Department of Justice in 2013 for over 2.2 Billion Dollars. Currently they are settling with the States, and the Risperdal Settlement amounts are staggering. There is no doubt that people that were affected by the drug Risperdal will be next in line for a Risperdal Settlement. The Big question is what will the Risperdal Settlement amounts be.
Risperdal Belwether trials have yielded verdicts for the victims of 2.5 million, 1.75 million, and 500,000 thousand dollars. These trials help create a matrix for the Risperdal Settlement. What will happen next is that after intense negotiations between the attorneys on the Plaintiff Steering Committee, and the attorneys for Johnson and Johnson, a Settlement will be reached.
Expect the Risperdal Settlement to have a graduated curve to it. For example an adolescent who developed gynoclamastia, and had breast reduction surgery will receive more then an adult who has gynoclamastia but did not have surgery.
We have heard from some members of the Plaintiff Steering Committee and the Risperdal Settlement amounts are much larger then they originally anticipated.
We have been told and mind you this is complete conjecture until the Risperdal Settlement is announced that people specifically adolescents that had breast reduction surgery could see settlements between $800,000-1.2 million dollars.
The key here is that they had breast reduction surgery, many have had liposuction, and the younger you were when the surgery occurred the higher your award.
Possible Risperdal Settlement Amounts
We have also heard that people, specifically adults that suffered from gynoclamastia but have not had surgery would see between $100,000 to $200,000 dollars. Again keep in mind these numbers are pure conjecture at this point, but in speaking with different members of the Plaintiff Steering Committee there does seem to be a consensus.
In our estimation we will see a Risperdal Settlement in the very near future.
