Our Firm Provides Information about Entering a Tylenol Lawsuit
Individuals hurt or killed because of serious Tylenol side effects may be entitled to join a Tylenol lawsuit depending on the specifics of their case. Our Tylenol attorneys are closely watching, and are currently involved in Multi-District Litigation (MDL) related to these and other dangerous drug claims.
Victims who are suffering from liver injuries because of the acetaminophen contained in Tylenol products need to consult with an experienced MDL law firm. Zoll & Kranz offers a complimentary case evaluation in order to help you understand your legal options in pursuing financial compensation from negligent drug companies such as the makers of Tylenol, McNeil Consumer Healthcare and parent company Johnson & Johnson.
Tylenol Lawsuits Consolidated into MDL
In April 2013, a Judicial Panel ruled to compile more than two dozen claims existing in federal courts against the Tylenol manufacturer McNeil Consumer Healthcare as well as the makers of other over-the-counter (OTC) acetaminophen medications. The Judicial Panel chose the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia with oversight from Honorable Lawrence F. Stengel as the centralized location for this MDL, explaining that the headquarter for McNeil Consumer Healthcare and Johnson & Johnson are located nearby and many of the claims were already housed in this district.
Judicial Panels will consolidate claims into MDL when all of the cases involved share similar allegations, defendants and factual issues. In the Tylenol MDL, claimants shared similar claims regarding liver injuries linked to the use of Tylenol or Tylenol-like acetaminophen medications, as well as shared concerns regarding the marketing, labeling and manufacturing practices of the defendants.
What Kind of Injuries Can I Claim in a Tylenol Lawsuit?
Our Tylenol lawyers believe that the failure of McNeil Consumer Healthcare to warn consumers of possible Tylenol side effects is unacceptable. Financial compensation may be available to you through joining a Tylenol lawsuit reserved for individuals seriously affected by acetaminophen overdoses. You may be eligible to join this or other litigation if you or someone you love experienced any of the following injuries after taking a Tylenol product:
- Needing hospitalization because of severe injuries or problems with your liver
- You were diagnosed with liver failure
- You received a liver transplant or were placed on waiting list for a liver transplant
- A loved one died from liver failure
