talcum powder lawsuits
If you or someone you know developed ovarian cancer after using talcum powder, you may be entitled to compensation and Vickery & Shepherd can help.
Studies have linked the use of talcum powder in the genital area to an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. Based on these studies, women who use talcum powder are approximately 30% more likely to be diagnosed with the disease.
Johnson & Johnson®, the world’s largest maker of health care merchandise, is under great scrutiny and is facing thousands of lawsuits claiming its talcum-based baby powder causes cancer due to trace amounts of asbestos in the product. Additionally, internal documents have shown that the company was aware of the issue but failed to warn the public. And more recently, a Federal Judge overseeing thousands of talcum powder cases ruled that there is reliable, admissible scientific evidence that the use of talc causes ovarian cancer in women.
