The Case Against Talcum Powder Manufacturers
Johnson & Johnson and other talcum powder manufacturers continue to claim their talc-based products are safe, but the medical research—and the civil courts—tell a different story. Women who used talc-based powders to stay fresh and dry during the 1980s and 1990s, and some even earlier, are now getting diagnosed with ovarian cancer at a higher than average rate.
Many women used this type of powder, including Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, in their panties, on sanitary napkins, and directly on their genitals for years. There seems to be a link between the use of this type of powder on and around the genitals and the development of ovarian cancer. Many juries agree, awarding women compensation for their related losses.
You May Be Eligible to Join a Mass Tort or File Your Own Claim
If you used this type of product on or near your genitals and later developed ovarian cancer, an Illinois talc powder lawyer from Pintas & Mullins Law Firm can review your case and determine if you may be eligible to pursue compensation. We can also help you consider a wrongful death action if your loved one passed away because of ovarian cancer. Call (800) 794-0444 now to learn more.
