You can sue for ovarian cancer caused by talcum powder if you meet certain qualifications that give you legal standing to file a claim. Making that determination can be legally complex, and contacting the attorneys at Pintas & Mullins Law Firm at (800) 794-0444 can help you determine if you have a strong case to sue a talcum powder manufacturer for your ovarian cancer diagnosis.
Talcum Powder Lawsuit Criteria
The regular use of talcum powder as a feminine hygiene product has been linked to the increased risk of the development of deadly ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer that is aggressive and starts in the ovaries of a woman and then spreads to other parts of the body. Most women do not notice the initial symptoms until the disease has progressed substantially. If you were diagnosed with cancer of the ovaries, consider if the following qualifications apply in your case to help you determine whether to pursue a claim against a talcum powder manufacturer:
- Are you diagnosed with ovarian-type cancer?
- Have you used talcum powder for a number of years as a feminine hygiene product?
- Have you ever used a product such as Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, Shower to Shower powder or a similar product?
- Did the biopsy results of your ovarian tumor show any kind of evidence of talcum powder?
- Do you have any family history of ovarian cancer or a genetic predisposition toward ovarian cancer, such as the BRCA-1 gene?
Even if you do not meet all the qualifications listed above, you may still have a strong case for monetary recovery. Visiting with an attorney that is familiar with talcum and/or baby powder cancer lawsuits can help you determine if you have sufficient grounds and evidence to pursue a lawsuit and possibly receive compensation for your injuries.
Building a Strong Case for Your Ovarian Cancer Lawsuit
If you move forward with a lawsuit against a talcum manufacturer, you will need to build a strong case. Obtaining all medical records will be crucial to the investigation along with any pathology reports or tissue samples that were used to definitively diagnose your cancer. Our attorneys can help you hire a talcum powder ovarian cancer medical expert that can review all of your pathology reports and determine if any of your ovarian cancer tissues contained fibers of talc, which would build a strong case towards proving that talcum powder use actually caused your ovarian cancer.
In many cases, you will not know if talc fibers were found in your tumors, as doctors are typically more concerned with fighting cancer, rather than determining why it occurred in the first place. However, hiring an ovarian cancer medical specialist to review your tissue samples can help you make the connection between talcum powder use and your ovarian cancer diagnosis.
Building a strong case will also include documenting and establishing your prolonged use of talcum powder as a feminine hygiene product. This documentation can be done through store receipts, memory, witness testimony such as a spouse or friend that knew you always used this product, and in many other ways. Creating a documented history of your talcum powder use can help build a strong case as well.
