A lawsuit has been filed against New Jersey based Johnson & Johnson by the family of Brianna Maya, after the girl was left burned and blind after taking Motrin and Tylenol. The lawsuits claims that the world’s largest maker of health products failed to warn parents of the potential  of allergic side effects that can leave children burned and blind.

The lawsuit claims that Johnson & Johnson had data decades ago that linked Ibuprofen to the potentially deadly Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, a skin disease that causes massive pain and suffering, but didn’t warn of the side effects until years later.  Maya took Motrin and Tylenol for a rash and cough in 2000 when she was just over three years old. She ended up in the hospital for months after developing skin lesions, eye infections and lung damage. She suffered burns to over 84 percent of her body, and was left blind in one eye.

A lawyer for the family said of Maya that the pain relievers “destroyed her life before she was old enough to understand” what happened.

The lawsuit, filed in Court of Common Pleas, Philadelphia County (Philadelphia), seeks more than $5 million in damages to cover medical bills and expenses.
