Factors in Determining the Value of a Risperdal Lawsuit:
1. The severity and magnitude of the harm suffered: Individuals who have suffered breast tissue growth may have to sustain tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses including reconstructive surgeries, doctor consultations, new medications and rehabilitation care. Such victims are entitled to compensation for all medical and health related expenses arising out of the use of the defective medication.
2. Level of pain and suffering associated with the harm: Emotional harm is a main component in determining the estimated value of any personal injury lawsuit. Individuals have a right to receive compensation for the physical harm and psychological suffering resulting from the negligent or intentional acts of other.
3. Whether you join a class action lawsuit or decide to file a single party claim: Class action claims bring together individual victims who have a common issue of fact or law against one liable party. Settlements in class action lawsuit are awarded on a proportional basis and not based on the severity or magnitude of the harm suffered. For example if there are 100 member in a class action lawsuit and the settlement for the class is $100 million dollars each plaintiff will receive the same amount of money despite the fact that some individuals may have injuries more severe than the rest of the class. It may be more beneficial for individuals who have relatively severe injuries to opt out of a class action lawsuit and instead file a single party claim.
4. Availability of punitive damages: Punitive damages are awarded when a negligent party acts with wanton or reckless disregard for the life and health of consumers. In many instance pharmaceutical giants fail to properly warn users of their medications of the dangerous side effects which may result from their use.
