In each of the lawsuits, the patient claims they suffered serious liver damage as a result of Tylenol-brand medications. Quite often, these damages didn’t even come from abusing the medication, but from using it as the label directs.
In 2013, when the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) established the Tylenol litigation, only 27 product liability claims against Tylenol were pending in federal courts around the nation. Now, there are 120 claims.
Multidistrict litigation is a legal process used to speed the process of complex cases.
All of this began in 2009 when the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reported that acetaminophen was the leading cause of acute liver failure in the US between 1998 and 2003.
