(PRWEB) May 23, 2013
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a New York-based nationwide mass torts law firm, has created the Tylenol Lawsuit Information Center at http://www.rotlaw.com/tylenol, dedicated to issues that apply to Tylenol users and those who are considering filing lawsuits.
The painkiller Tylenol (acetaminophen) has been shown to potentially cause severe liver damage, according to a 2009 report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.* In the “safety communication,” the FDA warned consumers against using more than the recommended dose of the drug.
There are currently lawsuits pending across the United States. In the federal courts, Tylenol lawsuits have been consolidated for pretrial proceedings. Unlike a class action, each lawsuit in the federal consolidation—a multidistrict litigation (or, “MDL”)—can have its own trial with potential for a damages award (MDL-2436, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation).
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP offers an easy-to-read, comprehensive page on its website that not only sets out relevant information about Tylenol’s side effects and regulatory history, but also provides those who believed the drug harmed them with the ability to contact an attorney to determine if they have a case.
