Tylenol and Autism Lawsuit
If you took Tylenol during your pregnancy and your child has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), you may be entitled to compensation. Contact the experienced team at Cordisco & Saile LLC so we can review your case.
Corporations, such as Johnson & Johnson, the makers of Tylenol, have a duty to tell people if their drugs might cause harm. There is convincing evidence that using Tylenol during pregnancy can lead to higher incidences of autism spectrum disorder and other problems in children. Rather than warn people of this danger, the manufacturers of Tylenol and other acetaminophen drugs said they were safe.
You had no way of knowing that acetaminophen wasn’t safe, and neither did the millions of other women who took it during pregnancy. The best you could do was trust your doctor, who trusted the manufacturers, and follow their collective advice. Unfortunately, in this case, that advice may have led to your child’s autism diagnosis.
The legal team at Cordisco & Saile LLC wants to help. We are a nationally recognized law firm willing to take on complex cases no matter how big the challenge or how deep the pockets of the defendants. To us, each client is deserving of personalized attention, respect, and unwavering support. This is our commitment to you and your family as we fight for your compensation.
How is Tylenol linked to autism?
A 2018 study looked at the combined results of several other studies to determine the effects of acetaminophen taken during pregnancy. They found that there was a 20 percent higher risk of autism and a 30 percent higher risk of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) when the mother took high amounts of acetaminophen during fetal development.
While more data is needed, the researchers concluded that women should be advised not to take Tylenol or other acetaminophen drugs regularly during pregnancy. This advice is contrary to what women were told in the past.

Who Can File a Tylenol Autism Lawsuit?
developed autism spectrum disorder or ADHD. You do not need to prove a correlation to file a claim against Johnson & Johnson, the makers of Tylenol. You need only show that:
- You took Tylenol while pregnant.
- Your child has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder or ADHD by a physician.
Tylenol Autism Class Action Lawsuit Process
In situations like the Tylenol autism lawsuit, where multiple people around the country have been harmed by the same negligent actions, courts allow class action lawsuits. Class action lawsuits are brought by a group of people together rather than each person suing individually. If you join the lawsuit, you become a member of the class of people suing the manufacturer for the harm it caused.
At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we offer a free consultation to help you determine whether you have a case. If you decide to join a lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson or another manufacturer of acetaminophen, we will fight for the entire class while keeping in mind that we are fighting for each family individually.
Our team has decades of experience in personal injury and product liability law, among other areas of law. We know the tactics corporations and insurance companies use in these cases. They will try to drag out the case in the hopes you drop out or accept a lowball settlement. We won’t let them take advantage of you and your family’s circumstances.
How Much Money Can You Recover in a Tylenol Autism Lawsuit?
It is difficult to put an exact number on your potential compensation for your Tylenol autism claim. One of the reasons you need an experienced personal injury lawyer is to ensure that your compensation covers all applicable areas in amounts that are fair to you and your family.
The amount of your award will depend on factors such as how much acetaminophen exposure your child had and their clinical diagnosis.
Our team will fight for compensatory damages to cover your medical bills and any expenses you have related to your child’s diagnosis, as well as the pain and suffering your family has endured as a result. We will fight to ensure that your child’s ongoing needs are met, not just the past and current challenges posed by their autism.
The case will resolve in one of two ways: through a settlement or a jury trial. If you reach a settlement, you and the other plaintiffs will each receive a portion of the compensation. These settlements can be substantial in cases that involve big corporations such as the makers of Tylenol. Whether your case settles or ends up in court, your legal team will be by your side every step of the way.
