NOW ACCEPTING TALCUM POWDER PERSONAL INJURY CASES
Manufacturing giant Johnson & Johnson is currently facing more than 1,200 personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits over its baby powder and Shower to Shower talcum powder products. Studies have shown that talc, a natural mineral contained in these products, can significantly increase a woman’s risk of developing aggressive and potentially fatal ovarian cancer when used in the genital region. The lawsuits allege that Johnson & Johnson knew about this risk for decades and failed to protect consumers by placing a warning label on its products.
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum powder, or if you have suffered the loss of a loved one, we encourage you to get in touch with Schneider Hammers right away. You may be entitled to compensation for damages including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Talc Considered a “Possible Carcinogen” by the American Cancer Society
Research from as far back as the 1970s confirms that using talcum powder for feminine hygiene substantially increases a woman’s cancer risk. In fact, women are up to 40 percent more likely to develop ovarian cancer that women who do not use these products.
Talc particles contained in Johnson & Johnson powder products can enter the body and embed in the tissue of the ovaries, causing inflammation that can lead to the formation of malignant tumors over time. Because ovarian cancer often shows no symptoms, it usually goes undetected until it has spread throughout the pelvic area. This makes this type of cancer very difficult to treat, and it can be fatal.
Johnson & Johnson refuses to accept that its products are dangerous despite talc’s status as a “possible carcinogen” by the American Cancer Society. So far, the company has paid $127 million in compensatory and punitive damages in two major talcum powder cases, with thousands more cases pending.
