New York, NY (PRWEB) July 05, 2014
An upcoming conference involving Tylenol lawsuits (http://www.tylenollawsuitcenter.com/) has been scheduled to take place later this month in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, where a federal multidistrict litigation is continuing to move forward, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.
According to a calendar posted on the Court’s website, parties involved in the federal proceeding will convene on July 17th, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. to discuss issues related to cases over the Johnson & Johnson pain reliever. Court documents indicate that dozens of Tylenol-related claims allege similar injuries caused by its active ingredient, acetaminophen. Plaintiffs in these cases allegedly experienced liver damage that occurred after label directions were properly followed and may have necessitated hospitalization, the need for a transplant, and/or death. (In Re: Tylenol (Acetaminophen) Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2436)
“Our Firm is looking forward to further progress in the federal litigation involving Tylenol lawsuits, as our attorneys continue to hear from individuals who allegedly suffered liver damage side effects of Tylenol,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of dangerous drugs and medical devices in the U.S. The Firm is currently offering free and confidential case evaluations to individuals who may have been harmed as a result of over-the-counter Tylenol products.
Court records indicate that Tylenol lawsuits filed in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania are continuing to move forward, with at least 140 claims alleging acetaminophen-related injuries now pending in the multidistrict litigation. Some of these cases may have been filed after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced in April that prescription medications containing more than 325 milligrams of acetaminophen were being voluntarily taken off the market after regulators considered them to be no longer safe.*
This FDA alert was issued almost a year after Bloomberg.com reported that the amount of acetaminophen included in over-the-counter Extra Strength Tylenol caplets exceeded the FDA’s limits for prescription drugs. That same month, McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced it would adjust warning labels on Tylenol products to include more prominent warnings about liver damage.**
Individuals who allegedly suffered Tylenol liver damage may be eligible to receive compensation for injury-related damages.
