Risperdal Claim Filing Deadlines
There is a limited period of time in which to file Risperdal lawsuit claims. This time limit is referred to as a “statute of limitations” and is determined by the laws of each state. No new claims can be filed after the statute of limitations elapses.
If you or your child took Risperdal and have developed gynecomastia, or male breast growth, we can help explain the statute of limitations for your state and how they apply in your case.
Our Risperdal attorneys will review the details of your situation, offer advice, and help you understand your legal options. There is no cost to talk to our lawyers, and no obligation to hire our law firm. If you do decide to pursue a claim, there are never any fees unless we recover compensation for you.
You have nothing to lose by contacting us today. However, you may lose the right to file a claim if your case is not filed before the statutory deadline.
There are several factors that affect the statutory deadlines for filing Risperdal lawsuits in each state, including:
• When the gynecomastia was diagnosed
• The state where the medication was prescribed/taken
• The state where the lawsuit is filed
Sometimes, it isn’t reasonable for a person who has been harmed by a medication to know what caused their injury until a much later date. For example, a patient taking Risperdal who experienced breast growth might not know that Risperdal may have caused gynecomastia until much later.
Statutes of limitations are very complex, and can be changed by the legislature or courts of a particular state at any time. For a full analysis of your potential legal claims and relevant statutes of limitation, it is important to consult with a lawyer who represents clients in pursuing Risperdal lawsuits.
