Why You Should File a Talcum Powder Lawsuit

September 23, 2016  |  Pharmaceuticals, Dangerous Drugs & Devices, Talcum

Plaintiffs in talcum powder lawsuits have won more than $100 million from Johnson & Johnson after juries found the company liable for failing to warn consumers that use of the product could lead to ovarian cancer. If you or a loved one developed the disease after regular use of talcum powder, you should seriously consider filing a lawsuit as well.

In February 2016, the family of a woman who passed away due to ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder for several years was awarded more than $70 million by a Missouri jury. Three months later, a woman who also said use of the product led to her ovarian cancer diagnosis was awarded $55 million by a jury in the same court. Both women used baby powder for feminine hygiene purposes.

Are You Eligible?

In general, plaintiffs will likely be eligible to file a talcum powder lawsuit if they developed ovarian cancer after using the product for an extended period of time. They may also be eligible if they used talcum powder in their genital area and are not pre-disposed to ovarian cancer genetically.

Serious Allegations

Plaintiffs allege that Johnson & Johnson knew of the potential dangers of talcum powder yet failed to warn users. Ovarian cancer is a devastating disease, leading to the need for long-term care that can be incredibly expensive.

Although no amount of money can undo the damage that is caused by ovarian cancer, a talcum powder lawsuit could provide the compensation you need to pay off your medical bills as well as other damages, such as lost wages and more. It will also send a loud and clear message that companies who manufacture defective or dangerous products must be held accountable for their actions.
