What’s Going On With The Talcum Powder Lawsuit

Many scientific studies have shown that the talc, an active ingredient in certain brands of powdery cosmetics like Baby Powder, Shower to Shower, and Talc Powder, can lead to ovarian cancer in some women.
Thousands of women who developed ovarian cancer after prolonged use of talcum powder are now suing the manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, for failing to warn them of the risks of using talcum powder. There are different types of talc, like gold and copper, that can be mined, but mostly it is found in China. 99% of baby powder is made up of talc. Shower to Shower consists of approximately 50% talc. Every year, there are about 24,000 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the US, with 14,000 of them succumbing to the disease. Applying talcum powder products around the vaginal area can release the particles into the uterus, risking entrance into the fallopian tubes and ovaries. These particles may reside in the body for years. Several studies report that talcum can stay trapped in a woman’s ovaries and cause ovarian cancer growth. More troubling is the suggestion that Johnson & Johnson was aware of peer-reviewed studies dating back more than 20 years that concluded that genital talc was responsible for 10% of all ovarian cancer diagnoses in each year.

What Kind Of Damages Could I Seek For My Injuries From Talcum Powder Or Baby Powder?

One illness talc-based powders can cause is ovarian cancer. Mesothelioma is yet another devastating type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos in talc-based powders. If you’re making a medical claim, provide medical records as evidence.

To pursue a personal injury claim for a form of cancer resulting from exposure to asbestos through Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder products, you might receive the following compensation for:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Deep emotional stress or pain
  • Loss of work, income and wages
  • Shortened life expectancy
  • Loss of consortium
The surviving family members of those who have died from cancer or mesothelioma caused by talc-based powder products may be able to file a wrongful death suit. Compensation for pain and suffering, as well as loss of financial contribution to a household, can be recovered in these cases.

Now that you are aware of the far-reaching effects of ovarian cancer or mesothelioma, you may wonder what has already been done and what companies are being blamed.

Among those brands which are currently in the middle of a lawsuit over their toxic baby-powder and talc-based products are the following:
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Gold Bond
  • Mennen
  • Cashmere Bouquet
  • Old Spice
Johnson & Johnson has had countless judgments issued against it that total into the billions. The majority of the lawsuits they have lost involved cancer-stricken consumers who used Johnson & Johnson products, some of which date back almost two decades.
