Risperdal Causing Movement Disorders Lawsuits

Movement disorders are a serious side-effect of Risperdal. Studies have linked Risperdal to movement disorders such as extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS) and tardive dyskinesia, both of which cause uncontrolled movements that can be distracting and embarrassing. It is not currently understood why Risperdal may cause these types of movement disorders in some individuals.

Lawsuits are being filed for people who suffer from movement disorders caused by Risperdal. These movement disorders can become so severe that they affect the quality of life for many people.

Our dangerous drug attorneys can help if you or someone you care about was harmed by Risperdal. Lawsuits have been filed against the drug maker by both patients and their families seeking compensation for injuries caused by this dangerous drug. You may be entitled to a settlement.
