Tylenol Overdose & Liver Failure
Tylenol (acetaminophen) is one of the most widely used drugs in the United States for treating pain and fever. People assume that Tylenol is extremely safe — and it is — however, it can lead to liver damage and liver failure in high doses.
Acetaminophen overdose is one of the most common poisonings worldwide. It is also the most common cause of acute liver failure in the United States. Close to 1,600 cases of liver failure, 450 deaths and 56,000 emergency-room visits are attributed to acetaminophen overdose each year.
Possible signs of a Tylenol overdose and/or liver failure symptoms include:
- Loss of appetite
- Extreme tiredness
- Unusual bleeding or bruising
- Pain in the upper right part of the stomach
- Yellowing of the skin or eyes
- Flu-like symptoms
Tylenol Liver Damage Lawsuits Growing in Numbers
Consumers harmed by Tylenol liver side effects are turning to the legal system to help them recover compensation for hospital bills, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. These Tylenol lawsuits continue to grow as more consumers become aware of the potential link between their liver problems and their use of Tylenol products.
On April 1, 2013, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) centralized 27 personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits alleging that plaintiffs or their loved ones suffered injuries or died from liver damage caused by various Tylenol products.
The new Tylenol liver damage MDL is known as In re: Tylenol (Acetaminophen) Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2436, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The consolidated litigation is accepting new Tylenol lawsuits each month.
