APAP-Tylenol Lawsuit FAQs

You don’t pay us any fees up front. You will never pay us anything unless we win a recovery on your behalf.
Our legal action against retailers of acetaminophen—often recognized by the brand name Tylenol, and also referred to as paracetamol or APAP—is distinct from a class action lawsuit. Instead, we are representing individual families in which the mother consumed acetaminophen during pregnancy and the child was subsequently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This type of legal pursuit is termed "mass tort litigation." While it involves a collective of people harmed by the same defendant, each individual's damages are distinct. 
If you took Tylenol while pregnant and your child was later diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), you might be eligible to participate in our mass tort litigation against retailers. Our litigation aims are twofold: Firstly, we strive to secure the maximum monetary compensation for our clients to help cover ongoing medical expenses, specialized schooling, long-term care and other necessary support for affected families. Secondly, we are dedicated to amplifying the voices of these families, urging the FDA and relevant corporations to acknowledge and address the significant risks associated with the drug. 

It brings peace knowing we might be able to help others…It’s a hard battle.
