Active Compensation

Acetaminophen (Tylenol) associated with ASD

A Johns Hopkis study determined that exposure to higher than normal amounts of acetaminophen in infants is linked to an increased risk of developing autism spectrum disorder (ASD). By examining samples of umbilical cord blood, researchers learned that those newborns with the highest levels of exposure to acetaminophen were approximately three times more likely than the control group to be diagnosed with ASD in the future.

Frequent use of Tylenol® during pregnancy is associated with an increased likelihood of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Settlement figures for Tylenol® compensations are estimated to range between $5 million and $10 million.

Research Uncovers the Adverse Effects of Acetaminophen on the Developing Fetal Brain.

  • 2017
The Journal of International Medical Research released a research paper detailing the impact of Tylenol on the development of the fetal brain. The study proposes that Tylenol and generic acetaminophen could contribute to autism by impeding crucial brain development enzymes, such as the Cox-2 enzyme, and disrupting neuron firing in the hypothalamus. Additionally, scientists posit a potential connection between acetaminophen usage and inflammatory diseases, implying that taking the medication during pregnancy might induce brain inflammation.

Epidemiology Journal of the United States

  • 2018
In 2018, a research paper in the American Journal of Epidemiology examined studies on the utilization of acetaminophen during pregnancy and its effects on the developing fetus. The study assessed information from more than 132,000 sets of mothers and children, discovering that exposure to acetaminophen resulted in a 20 to 30 percent heightened risk of neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism and ADHD.

Johns Hopkins Examination

  • 2019
Scientists at Johns Hopkins conducted a two-decade-long examination of a cohort of mothers and infants known as the Boston Birth Cohort, starting from birth. They scrutinized umbilical cord blood for acetaminophen and its derivatives. The research revealed that children with the highest concentrations of acetaminophen in their cord blood were roughly three times more prone to being diagnosed with autism compared to those with the lowest levels. The study employed direct evidence of Tylenol exposure, enhancing the reliability of the results compared to depending on maternal self-reporting.

Eligibility for Compensation

People Who May Have Been Harmed

Anyone who has been harmed or injured by the use of a product that has been deemed faulty or unsafe may be eligible for compensation. Whether the harm stemmed from a defective product, negligent practices, or other factors, there are legal remedies for the person who has been harmed. You could recover medical costs, lost wages, compensation for suffering, and other settlements or awards. It is essential that anyone harmed by a faulty product or dangerous chemical seek expert legal representation as soon as possible to determine their eligibility to file a claim and determine the best legal avenue for securing compensation.

Recent Updates in the Tylenol Lawsuit

The Tylenol lawsuit is currently in the pre-trial phase, where attorneys are accepting cases and submitting them for consolidation into the MDL (multi-district litigation). Recent developments include advancements towards streamlining the consolidation process directly into the MDL through the introduction of a short-form claim form. Additionally, Judge Cote is actively working on formulating a discovery plan to investigate the scientific connections between Tylenol and neurobehavioral effects such as autism and ADHD. Moreover, a study published in the Journal of International Medical Research suggests that Tylenol and generic acetaminophen might contribute to autism by hindering crucial brain development enzymes and disrupting neuron firing in the hypothalamus. Lastly, a consensus statement published in Nature Reviews Endocrinology has raised concerns about the use of Tylenol by pregnant women, calling for changes in guidelines for acetaminophen use during pregnancy while advocating for further research on the drug’s impact on fetal development.

Tylenol® & Autism Compensation

What makes the Tylenol® compensation relevant to you?

If your child has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and you suspect that Tylenol or another acetaminophen product might have been a contributing factor, you may want to explore your legal options for pursuing compensation. A successful compensation could result in significant compensation for losses and costs, including compensation for medical, mental health, disability, schooling, and other expenses, and compensation for pain and suffering and loss of quality of life. Pursuing legal action against drug manufacturers who fail to warn the public of the dangers their products can pose can also help you play a role in holding these powerful corporations accountable. It is essential that you consult with an experienced, vetted attorney who specializes in drug liability cases to learn about your legal options.
