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.

I was on 4mg of Risperidone for about a year then a new doctor reviewed my case because it made like a zombie and I was starting to shake in my hands a bit and couldnt hold my legs still to even sleep…. He tapered me down to a much lower dose over time till another new doctor said I really didnt need the stuff at all and shouldnt be on it and stopped it all together. Then yet another doctor contradicted him said it may be helpful and put me back on it at a even lower dosage but I was still on it. They also have me on Paraxitine (Paxil) which is know to amplify the effects of Risperidone when all was said and done i remained on this drug for around 3-4 years (just stopped taking it as I decided to do some digging). Well at age 31-32 I had for the first time in my life not one but 2 broken bones, first all I did was help move a largish table and it literally fractured my spine. The docs all said I was junky looking for pills for about a year so it also compressed causing even more damage. It then was pinching sciatic nerves and compressing my spinal cord so half able to walk my leg gave out I fell to the right and fractured my ankle, no more walking at all emergency room trip ect…. My neuro surgeon told me he only sees the problem I have in people between like 75-90 with advanced osteoporosis or with like bone cancer of some sort. The only explanation is this drug they had me on for symptoms never even intended for said drug…. I have been in sooo many far far far worse accidents and never broke anything. Ive fallen 2 stories off a roof into a drive way, drove a 4 wheeler over a 100-150 foot cliff, been thrown off my bike as a kid doing like 40-50 down this hill so hard people heard me hit the street from like 50 yards away while inside a closed house (woke up briefly in a ambulance then in OR on that one) but never broke anything…. And now I crush my spine moving a table? After being a roofer and general laborer off and on for some years… Yeah I dont think so, could it be this stuff that has been reported recently http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21854880 to cause bone loss and reduced bone density? Yeah im going with that one…. I had to have my L5 vertebrae completely removed in order to walk again and have most of the pain reduced… L5 (possibly the strongest bone in the body next to teeth) anterior/posterior Corpectomy with fusion at S1-L4, $156,000 operation with $1200 per visit every 2-3 months to neuro surgeons must take pain pills daily to keep pain down at least till the nerves flare up and then nothing really touches that…. So im looking to sue for all sorts of damages and mental and physical anguish and fraud and anything I can get out of these doctors institutions and pharm corps!!!!
