A Talcum Powder Lawyer from Pravati can help.
Talcum powder seems like such a universal, harmless skin care aide, it’s hard to believe there are currently many people suing Johnson & Johnson over the powdery product. Used to calm rash pain, prevent diaper rash, and help keep feet smelling fresh, talc, or talcum powder, is a mineral made with hydrated magnesium silicate and often contains asbestos. Talc is then mixed with baby powder and/or corn starch to create the item you buy from your local drug store’s shelves. The problem, here, is that talc has been linked to ovarian cancer—yet Johnson & Johnson didn’t warn consumers that they may be risking potential cancer from use of the product.
Bloomberg Report on Talcum Powder
Some studies have shown that even talcum powder without asbestos can still cause cancer—yet consumers aren’t being warned appropriately and as a result, lawsuits against companies like Johnson & Johnson are increasing. In 2016, Bloomberg reported that over 1,000 women were in the process of suing Johnson & Johnson for hiding of the risks of cancer involved in use of their talcum products. 2017, USA Today reported that a woman with ovarian cancer had been awarded $110 million after a jury heard her case against Johnson & Johnson. The company has also lost other cases with more than $190 million awarded to plaintiffs.
Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuit
Recent trials have brought interesting evidence to light, including internal memorandums issued by Johnson & Johnson consultants stating that even just denying the possible risks associated with talcum powder use could damage the company’s reputation. It’s evidence like this that a knowledgeable, experienced lawyer can use to help a plaintiff get the verdict they want and the money they are entitled to.
