Lawsuits Claim Tylenol Use May Cause Autism

Representing Mothers and Children Harmed by Tylenol Use:

The Oliver Bell Group is currently representing individuals who were injured after using Tylenol during pregnancy. There is an ongoing lawsuit against manufacturers and distributors of generic acetaminophen, seeking damages for those who have been harmed by these dangerous products.

The Study Showing Chemicals Responsible

In 2018, researchers did a meta-analysis of seven studies involving 132,738 pairs of mothers and children. The analysis revealed a 20% higher risk of autism for children who had prolonged exposure to acetaminophen in the womb. In 2019, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that children whose cord blood samples contained the highest levels of acetaminophen — the generic name for the drug Tylenol — were roughly three times more likely to be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder later in childhood, compared to children with the lowest levels of acetaminophen in their cord blood.

In the September 2021 issue of the journal Nature Reviews Endocrinology, a Consensus Statement from a group of 91 leading medical experts warned that Tylenol or acetaminophen during pregnancy can increase the risk of autism.

Qualifying Injuries

If you used Tylenol or acetaminophen (also called paracetamol) during pregnancy and your child developed autism, you may be eligible for compensation from the parties responsible. Other disorders that are caused by exposure during pregnancy include:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) diagnosis later in life

  • Complex Developmental Disorder

  • Cerebral Palsy

  • Other developmental disorders and neurological disorders
