Update: Punitive Damages Allowed in Risperdal Gynecomastia Lawsuit
January 17, 2018 – A Pennsylvania Superior Court has cleared the way for punitive damages in a lawsuit filed on behalf of a boy who grew breasts after taking Risperdal to treat his Tourette’s syndrome. Plaintiff Timothy Stange was awarded more than $500,000 in compensatory damages in 2015, and then on Jan. 10 a three-member judicial panel ruled that Stange could also be awarded punitive damages for his injuries.
What’s the problem?
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Risperdal class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members that have been diagnosed with gynecomastia after taking Risperdal.
About Class Action Lawsuits
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each clients recovery by filing individual Risperdal lawsuits on their behalf.
