Tylenol Lawsuits Move Forward, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Upcoming Conference in Federal Tylenol Liver Damage Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 02, 2014

Tylenol lawsuits ( filed on behalf of individuals who allegedly suffered severe liver damage due to the acetaminophen in over-the-counter Tylenol products continue to move forward in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, the litigation’s next Status Conference has been scheduled for Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. The Court has directed Liaison Counsel to submit an agenda at least two business days prior to the conference. (In Re: Tylenol (Acetaminophen) Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2436)

“Our Firm has heard from a number of individuals who allegedly developed serious liver damage due to acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol-brand products. We are pleased that this proceeding is moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is offering free legal reviews to consumers who allegedly suffered acetaminophen-induced liver damage resulting in hospitalization, liver transplantation, or death after ingesting a Tylenol product.

Tylenol Liver Damage Allegations
According to court documents, more than 140 Tylenol lawsuits have been filed in the federal litigation underway in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. All of the claims accuse Johnson & Johnson and McNeil Consumer Healthcare of failing to provide adequate warnings regarding the association between the acetaminophen in Tylenol and liver damage. In many cases, Tylenol lawsuit plaintiffs claim that liver damage occurred even though the drugs were used in accordance with label directions.

According to a recent report published by The Philadelphia Inquirer, 78,000 people require emergency room care every year due to toxic reactions to acetaminophen. Such injuries also result in about 33,000 hospitalizations every year.* In 2011, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it would limit the amount of acetaminophen in prescription medications to 325 mg per tablet. According to a notice posted on the Federal Register, the new limits went into affect on January 14, 2014.

The FDA has not imposed similar limits on the amount of acetaminophen in over-the-counter products. In August 2013, reported that over-the-counter Extra Strength Tylenol caplets each contain 500 mg of acetaminophen, well over the new limits for prescription medications set by the FDA. That same month, McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced that it would add new, more prominent warnings regarding the risk of liver damage to the labels of Tylenol-brand medication.**

Alleged victims of Tylenol and liver damage may be entitled to compensation for injury-related damages. To find out more about filing a Tylenol lawsuit, please visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. To arrange for a free legal review, please call 800-511-5092.
