Hundreds of women have allegedly developed ovarian cancer following long-term use of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and other talc-based powders for feminine hygiene purposes. If you or a loved one suffered similar harm, a talcum powder lawyer can help you pursue compensation for the physical, financial and emotional damages you’ve sustained.
For decades, millions of women have relied on products like Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower to maintain feminine hygiene. However, in the 1970s, scientist examining ovarian and cervical tumors discovered talc particles embedded in the tissue. Additional research has since added to concerns, including some studies that were published over the last few years:
By 2016, Johnson & Johnson had been named a defendant in more than 1,200 product liability claims involving talc and ovarian cancer. However, some talcum powder attorneys believe that the litigation could eventually include hundreds of additional cases.
In 2016, two talcum powder lawsuits went to trial in Missouri state court, where hundreds of ovarian cancer cases involving Johnson & Johnson are centralized. The first concluded in February, when the company was ordered to pay $72 million in compensatory and punitive to the family of a woman who had died of the disease. In April, another ovarian cancer victim was awarded $55 million in total damages. According to their lawsuits, both women had used Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based products as part of their daily feminine hygiene routine for several decades. Read More
During both trials, the plaintiffs’ talcum powder lawyers presented internal company documents showing that Johnson & Johnson was aware of health concerns involving ovarian cancer since the 1970s. Yet in spite of these concerns, a 1992 document suggested that the company could boost sale by aggressively targeting women who were heavy users of talc-based products.
Financial compensation may be available to those who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer following years of genital talc use. However, you don’t want to take on a mega-corporation like Johnson & Johnson alone. A case of this complexity requires the aid of an experienced talcum powder attorney who can ensure that your rights are protected and that you are treated fairly throughout the entire legal process.
