APAP Tylenol Civil Litigation Attorney in Texas & New Mexico
Table of Contents
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our New Mexico and Texas civil litigation attorneys are representing mothers who took Tylenol or another generic version of acetaminophen (APAP) while pregnant, which resulted in their children developing autism spectrum disorder (ASP) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) after birth.
There is now substantial research that connects Tylenol and other forms of acetaminophen to higher rates of autism and other neurological disorders, which allows our clients to hold drugmakers liable for their children’s long-term disorders.
If you took Tylenol or APAP during pregnancy, contact our skilled civil litigation attorneys today to learn how we can help you pursue the compensation you deserve for the manufacturer or retailer’s failure to warn pregnant women of the dangers associated with its use.
Is There Medical Evidence That Ties Tylenol and Acetaminophen Use During Pregnancy to Autism and ADHD?
Last year, medical experts warned that the use of Tylenol during pregnancy was not safe and could lead to higher rates of autism or ADHD, according to a Consensus Statement from Nature Reviews Endocrinology.
A Johns Hopkins study reviewed umbilical cord blood samples and measured acetaminophen levels, revealing those with the highest levels were almost three times as likely to be on the autism spectrum compared to children with the lowest levels.
Another study, conducted by JAMA Psychiatry found that umbilical cord “biomarkers of fetal exposure to acetaminophen were associated with significantly increased risk of childhood [autism] in a dose-response fashion.”
Who Can File a Tylenol APAP Lawsuit?
If you used Tylenol or a generic version of acetaminophen extensively during pregnancy and your child was later diagnosed with ADHD or autism, you may qualify to pursue a product liability claim against the drug’s manufacturer or retailer, so you can pursue the financial compensation you are entitled to to help treat your child’s disorder, and the other damages you have both suffered.
