Our Tylenol injury attorneys are pursuing lawsuits for children who were diagnosed with Autism or attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder after being exposed to increased levels of acetaminophen (Tylenol) in the womb.

The study comes from researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The researchers analyzed data from the Boston Birth Cohort, a 20-year study of early life factors influencing pregnancy and child development.
