8000000000.00 Billion

$8 Billion Verdict for Dangerous Johnson & Johnson Drug

Arnold & Itkin LLP won the third largest verdict in U.S. history against one of the biggest and most well-funded companies in the world.

Our firm—along with co-counsel from Kline and Specter—won a record-breaking verdict against Janssen Pharmaceuticals and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson. The case concerned Risperdal, a drug Johnson & Johnson originally developed to treat adults with mental illness. To earn more profits, the company aggressively expanded the drug’s use off-label and directly targeted children with disabilities.

When our client was 9-years-old, he was prescribed Risperdal. Shortly after, he developed gynecomastia—a serious condition where boys grow female breasts. We uncovered evidence that Johnson & Johnson knew about the connection between Risperdal and gynecomastia but chose not to turn it over to the FDA, the doctors, or the families that were ultimately hurt by this drug.

After nearly a month of trial, a Philadelphia jury announced an $8 billion verdict in favor of our client —the third largest verdict for an individual plaintiff in United States history and the largest jury verdict ever won for a single-plaintiff in Pennsylvania.

$117 Million Verdict Won for Victim of Ambulance Accident

$117 was won for a woman and her two children after a severe accident.

Arnold & Itkin won a verdict for a woman injured while traveling in an ambulance. The victim was seven months pregnant and experiencing severe stomach pain when she called for an ambulance. On the way to the hospital, the ambulance driver dropped something and picked it up without slowing down. As a result, the ambulance collided with the back of a sugar cane truck. The plaintiff suffered a severed spine and a brain injury. She will never be able to recover and is permanently restricted to a wheelchair.

When the verdict was decided, she had already incurred $1.4 million in medical bills and she is expected to need an additional $30 million for all future medical treatments. The unborn child was delivered prematurely; both baby and the plaintiff's other daughter are now under the care of the plaintiff's mother. Arnold & Itkin is proud to say we secured a $117 million verdict for the mom and daughter after proving negligence on behalf of the ambulance driver. We were able to show the ambulance’s driver had a poor driving record and bad eyesight. This money will go toward medical expenses for the mom as well as the possibility of complications with the premature child. Part of that verdict was also awarded because of the pain, suffering and loss of support that the children sustained because of their injured mother.

$76.6 Million Verdict Won on Behalf of Teenage Boy

The attorneys at Arnold & Itkin won a major verdict against Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of Risperdal, on behalf of a client suffering gynecomastia.

Arnold & Itkin won a case against Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceutical in a case involving a young boy who developed gynecomastia as a result of taking Risperdal. Attorney Jason Itkin and the team of lawyers from Arnold & Itkin obtained a $76.6 million jury verdict on behalf of the boy and his family, with the help of Santana McMurrey and Cory Itkin.

This verdict comes as a big victory for Arnold & Itkin, who was able to hold Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceutical accountable for their failure to warn that Risperdal could cause breast growth in young boys. After the family initially sued Johnson & Johnson, the defendants refused to own up to their failures, insisting that Risperdal was the only drug that could help the boy, that he continued to take the drug even after understanding the risks, and ultimately, that the drug doesn’t cause female breast growth. During the trial, evidence of a scientific link between Risperdal and gynecomastia was uncovered during cross-examination. This evidence, known in the case as “Tab 4”, was not made public until the trial and was kept secret from the FDA by Johnson & Johnson. Additionally, the findings never made their way into published scientific studies. As a result of “Tab 4”, the jury determined that Johnson & Johnson purposefully concealed, falsified, and destroyed evidence of the study.

The trial lasted 11 days. As a result of the skilled advocacy of our attorneys at Arnold & Itkin, the Philadelphia jury unanimously determined that Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceuticals failed to warn of the drug’s side effects and that this failure substantially caused gynecomastia in the plaintiff. Arnold & Itkin’s client was awarded $76.6 million by the jury—the largest verdict in a Risperdal-Gynecomastia case.

$44 Million Won for Victim of Serious Accident

Attorney Kurt Arnold, along with two other attorneys, won a $44 million jury award, which is the largest amputee verdict in the country.

Attorney Kurt Arnold represented a construction superintendent whose leg had been amputated after crush injuries sustained in crane accidents. Our 31-year-old client had been standing 100 feet from the auger behind a safety fence when he had been struck by a piece of large equipment. The accident had occurred when a crane operator had been attempting to unstick an auger. The operator attempted to stop the job at least five times but was denied. The crane eventually collapsed. After a crane had lifted the equipment pinning our client to the ground, he was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where an above-the-knee amputation was performed on his left leg. During the three week trial, Kurt argued the company hired to drill the auger cast pilings had violated standard safety practice in an effort to complete the project quickly. In addition, he argued that the owner of the crane had poorly inspected the machine. The jury deliberated and found both companies to be responsible. In the end, a $44 million award was won. This case was listed #43 in The National Law Journal's Top 100 Verdicts of 2015.

$39.7 Million Verdict for Victim of Burn Injuries

Our firm represented a Texas worker who sustained life-threatening injuries in a dust fire and explosion at his place of work. After a three week trial, the jury awarded a record verdict of $39.744 million.

Attorneys Kyle Findley and Adam Lewis represented a Texas worker who sustained catastrophic burn injuries after a dust fire and explosion occurred at a Georgia-Pacific plywood plant in Corrigan, Texas. The blast occurred due to multiple system failures. In 2004, Georgia-Pacific had hired Aircon, Inc. to design and install the dust collection system, which carried highly-combustible dust from an industrial sander to a baghouse where filter bags would clear it from the air. GreCon, Inc. was responsible for a spark detection and suppression system that worked in conjunction with the dust collection system to help protect the baghouse.

Tragically, both systems failed on April 26, 2014. A fire in the system resulted in sparks being sent through the ductwork of the plant; the systems failed to prevent the ignition source from entering the baghouse. This failure led to an explosion and deflagration, which engulfed out client in flames. Despite the life-threatening nature of these burns, our clients worked to alert emergency services of the explosion. He was only transported via life flight helicopter to a Tier 1 burn unit after confirming that his co-workers were on their way to treatment.

Our law firm took on the case and took it to trial, which lasted three weeks. At that time, our client had already undergone seven surgical procedures to treat his injuries; he was projected to receive multiple more due to the severity of his injuries and his deteriorating condition. We fought hard to demand justice for our client, arguing that the systems had failed to meet industry standards and, in the case of the fire prevention system, had been installed in an unsafe location. After deliberating, the jury agreed and found both defendants negligent. The jury then awarded our client damages for medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, disfigurement, physical impairment, physical pain, and mental anguish. The verdict totaled $39.744 million.
