Tylenol Autism Claims

Dedicated Michigan Product Liability Lawyers Aggressively Pursuing Compensation on Behalf of Families Harmed by Dangerous Drugs

Acetaminophen Pill

Over 100 lawsuits have been filed against manufacturers of Tylenol (Acetaminophen), one of the most popular pain relievers, due to its proven links to autism in children born to mothers that took the drug during their pregnancy. These children may also suffer ADHD and ADD. Due to the large number of claims, the Tylenol (Acetaminophen), lawsuits have been consolidated into a class action. These cases are moving fast and are predicted to lead to one of the biggest product liability settlements in U.S. history!

There are also Tylenol Autism claims that have been filed against retailers, including Walgreens and Walmart for advertising Tylenol (Acetaminophen) as the safest pain reliever for pregnant people and for failure to warn them of the dangers of consuming the products during pregnancy.

Yes, the link between Tylenol (Acetaminophen) and childhood autism was first identified in 2008. This study found that children given Tylenol (Acetaminophen) following their routine MMR vaccine had a higher rate of developing autism that those who did not take Tylenol (Acetaminophen).

A decade later, an article published by John Hopkins University in 2019 described a study followed a group of 996 infants for 20 years after birth and evaluated the Tylenol (Acetaminophen) levels in their umbilical cord tissue. They found that fetal exposure to Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is associated with significant risk of the child developing autism. This study supported previous findings that were consistent with prior studies.

The Consensus Statement published in September 2021, summarized and analyzed all prior research and once again confirmed the link between Tylenol (Acetaminophen) and the development of autism in unborn children. The study found that this risk is increased by 20%. Furthermore, the quantities of Tylenol (Acetaminophen) taken during the pregnancy plays a part in the child’s development of autism. This statement recommended a warning label on the Tylenol (Acetaminophen) to let pregnant people know that they are at risk when using Tylenol (Acetaminophen). As of February 2023, this has still not happened.

Who Qualifies to File a Tylenol Autism Claim?

Child with heart

You may be eligible to bring claims against the manufacturer of Tylenol (Acetaminophen) and possibly the retailers that promoted the products if:

  1. Tylenol (Acetaminophen) was taken during pregnancy;
  2. Child was diagnosed with autism and/or ADHD;
  3. Child was born between January 1, 2005, and March 26, 2020.

Of course, additional information may be needed to support your claim, for example:

  • Why was Tylenol (Acetaminophen) used?
  • Was Tylenol (Acetaminophen) used during the second and third trimesters?
  • How frequently was Tylenol (Acetaminophen) taken?
  • What was the dose of Tylenol (Acetaminophen) taken?
  • How was your baby delivered?
  • Did you or your child suffer any trauma or injury during birth?
  • Is the child regularly taking medication for autism spectrum disorder?
  • Does the child have an IEP, 504, or other accommodation for any condition other than autism?

Additionally, as with any claim based on an allegedly dangerous drug, there are potential factors that could disqualify you from pursuing a claim, such as:

  • Less than 10 doses of Tylenol (Acetaminophen) taken during pregnancy;
  • The mother suffered from gestational diabetes, gestational hypertension, or any type of infection or fever during pregnancy that required hospitalization
  • The mother used any type of SSRI during pregnancy;
  • The mother was over the age of 45 at the time of birth;
  • The mother consumed alcohol, tobacco, or any illegal drug during her pregnancy;
  • The mother has a previous child that was diagnosed with autism with no Tylenol (Acetaminophen) use during that pregnancy;
  • The birth occurred prior to 26 weeks;
  • The pregnancy or childbirth occurred in Michigan; and
  • The child has been diagnosed with Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, Tourette syndrome, or Tuberous sclerosis.
