For those that have been keeping up with the news, it’s no secret there is now a new Tylenol claim being filed against the pharmaceutical giant. But, what is this claim about, and how is it tied to autism and ADHD? Below are some highlights of the recent Tylenol claim and what it could mean for those affected.
Link Between Tylenol and Autism
The new Tylenol claim alleges that parents were not adequately warned about a possible link between acetaminophen use during pregnancy and autism, as well as ADHD. This is especially concerning given that acetaminophen is already known to be one of the most commonly used medications taken by pregnant women. According to the claim, Johnson & Johnson failed to notify expecting mothers of the potential risks associated with taking acetaminophen during pregnancy.
Unfortunately, a study in 2019 published in JAMA Psychiatry is just one of many linking high acetaminophen use in pregnancy to an increased risk of autism and ADHD. For parents already dealing with a diagnosis or suspected diagnosis, this new Tylenol claim is a reminder of the importance of researching any medication one is taking and consulting a doctor before using them.
Can Parents Seek Compensation?
At this time, the Tylenol claim is still ongoing and has yet to be resolved. But for those that feel their child’s autism or ADHD diagnosis is tied to acetaminophen use during pregnancy, it may be possible to seek compensation from Johnson & Johnson. Parents should consult an experienced attorney who can help review their case and determine if filing a legal claim would be beneficial. Depending on the circumstances of one’s case, parents may be eligible for damages such as medical bills, lost wages due to caretaking needs, and more. In addition, experts say that payouts might be as high as $2 million since this is the lifetime cost of someone with autism. In general, those with more severe autism (level 3) would receive more compensation than those with less severe ASD.
Where to Turn For Help
Ultimately, this new Tylenol claim highlights the importance of understanding any medication before taking them – especially when pregnant. It also serves as a reminder that those affected by autism or ADHD have legal rights, and that seeking compensation may be possible.
