Tylenol Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Release of Study Finding Tylenol Use in Pregnancy May Affect Child Development

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2013

As Tylenol lawsuits ( continue to mount in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that a newly published study has reported a possible association between the use of acetaminophen in pregnancy and problems with child development. Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in Tylenol-brand over-the-counter medications.

The study, which was published online in the International Journal of Epidemiology, looked at 8,000 Norwegian children whose mothers were surveyed about their medication use at weeks 17 and 30 of pregnancy. They were also surveyed at 6 months post-partum, and were asked to complete a follow-up questionnaire about their child's developmental milestones three years later. The children of women who reported the most frequent acetaminophen use (at least 28 days during pregnancy) appeared to exhibit poorer motor, language and communication skills than other children. They also had more behavior problems, according to the authors of the study.*

“While the lawsuits we are investigating involve allegations that Tylenol can cause severe liver damage, this study serves to remind that acetaminophen may carry some very real risks,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is offering free legal reviews to individuals who may have suffered liver damage associated with the use of Tylenol.

Tylenol and Liver Damage
According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), acetaminophen was the leading cause of acute liver failure in the U.S. between 1998 and 2003. From 1990 to 1998, acetaminophen was blamed for 56,000 emergency room visits, 26,000 hospitalizations, and 458 deaths annually.

According to court documents, at least 100 Tylenol lawsuits involving liver damage allegations are now pending in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania. All of the lawsuits allege that Tylenol products can cause liver damage, even when taken as directed. The lawsuits further allege that many victims of Tylenol liver damage were hospitalized, required a liver transplant, or died, as a result of acetaminophen in the over-the-counter medications.

This past summer, Johnson & Johnson announced it was adding more prominent, red-lettered warnings to the labels of Tylenol products regarding the potential for sever liver damage. According to a report from, Extra Strength Tylenol – which contains 500 milligrams of acetaminophen per tablet - was to appear with the warnings in October. Other products will bear the warnings in the coming months.**

Individuals who suffered acetaminophen-induced liver damage resulting in hospitalization, liver transplantation or death allegedly associated with a Tylenol product may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and other injury-related damages.
