Justice For Parents Whose Children Were Harmed By Tylenol During Pregnancy

Tylenol is one of the most commonly used over-the-counter pain relievers during pregnancy. While many doctors consider it to be safe during pregnancy, growing evidence has shown a link between Tylenol use during pregnancy and autism diagnoses in children.

Our lawyers help people who have been harmed by various products, including pharmaceuticals, to pursue accountability and compensation from the companies that manufacture those products. We stand on a proven record of success standing up to powerful organizations. If you took Tylenol during pregnancy, and your child was diagnosed with autism, you can turn to us for guidance on whether you have a product liability claim.

The Link Between Tylenol In Pregnancy And Autism And ADHD

Several recent studies have demonstrated a link between Tylenol (also known as paracetamol and acetaminophen) use during pregnancy and autism, autism spectrum disorders and ADHD in the child. The changes of these disorders are greater when:

  • The mother used larger doses of Tylenol during pregnancy
  • The mother took Tylenol 10 or more times during pregnancy
  • The Tylenol usage occurred during all trimesters

This evidence can serve as the foundation for a product liability claim against acetaminophen manufacturers under the right circumstances.

Was Your Child Diagnosed With Autism Or ADHD?

If your child has been diagnosed and treated for these conditions, and you frequently took acetaminophen during pregnancy, you may have a legal claim. You and your child deserve accountability. You deserve compensation for the many costs – financially, mentally and emotionally – that go along with these diagnoses.
