As one of the most popular over-the-counter pain relievers and fever reducers, Tylenol, also commonly known as Acetaminophen, has been shown to increase the risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), as well as developmental disorders associated with Tylenol consumption during pregnancy. If your child or the child of a loved one is diagnosed with a neurological disorder such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), you may be eligible to file a Tylenol Autism ADHD Lawsuit.
Gathering evidence to file a lawsuit
Accumulating evidence to support your claim of Acetaminophen exposure during pregnancy is crucial. The use of Tylenol during pregnancy must be documented, and scientific evidence must be provided that your child was subsequently diagnosed with a neurological disorder.
Evidence for a Tylenol lawsuit may include:
- If available, records of Tylenol use during pregnancy
- Purchase receipts of Tylenol
- Your child’s medical records show a neurological disorder caused by Acetaminophen exposure
- If necessary, you will need to provide the records of your child’s therapist or psychiatrist
- Tylenol dosage during pregnancy as documented by your doctor or healthcare professional
Hiring an attorney to file a claim
Finding an attorney to handle your case and file a compensation claim is necessary after gathering evidence. A lawyer will guide you through the civil litigation process and keep you updated at every step. Attorneys who have handled dangerous drug lawsuits before knowing the importance of the attorney-client relationship and will treat you with respect.
They will help you assess the damages
Damages assessment involves collecting information and determining any and all economic and non-economic losses associated with your case. A Tylenol lawsuit may include one or more of the following damages: Medical costs, bills, pain and suffering, mental health effects, permanent disability, and loss of income.
What legal recourse do you have if your child was affected by prenatal Tylenol use?
It is the right of every patient to be fully informed about the risks and benefits of any treatment they receive. Informed consent is especially important for pregnant women since they are responsible for the health of both themselves and their newborns. The damage done to pregnant women by drugmakers and physicians who recommend products without communicating the potential risks is irreversible. You may be able to obtain a lawsuit if Tylenol was prescribed by your doctor and your child develops ASD or ADHD.
