For years, expecting mothers have relied on Tylenol (acetaminophen) to relieve pain. Studies now suggest that there’s a strong link between a fetus’s exposure to acetaminophen and an increased likelihood of autism.
Our legal team is dedicated to helping families of children with autism get the compensation they deserve in Tylenol child autism lawsuits. If you took Tylenol while pregnant, and your child was diagnosed with autism, you might be able to get compensation for the damages your family is experiencing.

Tylenol Exposure in the Womb and Higher Rates of Autism
In utero exposure to acetaminophen is associated with a 20% higher risk of developing autism, according to a 2018 study. In 2021, many scientists issued a statement alerting the public of this risk.
Unfortunately, pregnant women were not informed about the potential risks for taking Tylenol and are now forced to deal with the outcome.
If your family is considering your legal options after your child was diagnosed with autism that you suspect is a result of taking Tylenol, contact our firm today for a free consultation.
Common Signs of Autism
Signs of autism vary greatly from one person to another. A few of the most common signs are:
Difficulties engaging socially
Limited interests or activities
Difficulties making eye contact with others
It’s estimated that one in 44 children in the U.S. might have autism. The number has grown in recent decades, and it’s possible that exposure to Tylenol is a contributing factor in the increase.
You Shouldn’t Have to Pay for a Pharmaceutical Company’s Negligence
Drug manufacturers are legally obligated to inform users of risks their products pose. When pregnant women aren’t made aware of the risks their child faces when taking a drug, it’s impossible for them to make an informed decision about whether they should take that medication.
Product liability laws exist to hold manufacturers responsible when they fail to warn consumers about the dangers of their products. Consumers have the right to hold pharmaceutical companies responsible for the damages they or their loved ones suffer.
Parents might experience many different costs while managing their child’s autism. Those costs can include years of medical bills and lost income.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!
The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
Out of nowhere… Come a car and she hit us head-on. I thought for a moment that my wife was going to die, you know… But we’re all good! I just needed to find somebody that would have our back… I chose Michael because he’s going to be upfront with ya, he will definitely have your back!
