Increase in Talcum Powder Lawsuits
Mineral talc contained in the talcum powder manufactured by companies like Johnson & Johnson was mined near asbestos mines, causing some talc to also have asbestos particles which is a known cancer-causing agent.
Manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson had knowledge four decades ago that their talc products contained asbestos, and they failed to alert the public. Knowing that asbestos is a carcinogen and that their products contained this mineral as well, gave rise to the connection between ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. Johnson & Johnson has attempted to deny that their products contained asbestos. However, their own internal records and independent testing has proved otherwise.
Verdicts and Settlement Amounts for Talcum Powder Litigation
The cases brought against talcum powder manufacturers were intended to pursue compensation for the injuries suffered and were an attempt to punish these manufacturers for their failure to warn the public that their products not only contained asbestos but that there was a link between asbestos and ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.
The victims in these circumstances are largely successful. In total, billions of dollars are awarded to victims by juries throughout the United States. Additionally, Johnson & Johnson has settled some cases, so the amounts are private but likely substantial. With the connection between talcum powder, ovarian cancer and mesothelioma seemingly established, verdicts became astronomical against talcum powder manufacturers.
Unfortunately, there is no way to accurately predict the amount of settlement or jury award you may receive without a detailed legal analysis of your case..
