Can I File a Talcum Powder Lawsuit?
Last week’s blog answered common questions about talcum powder and cancer. However, the most important question of all deserves far more attention. Companies should face consequences for releasing defective consumer products onto the market. More importantly, victims of defective consumer products deserve justice.
More than 4,500 lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson by women who developed ovarian cancer or by their surviving family members. There are several reasons you could file a talcum powder lawsuit. These reasons include but may not be limited to:
- You developed ovarian cancer and have a history of using talcum powder products. Women have developed ovarian cancer after using these feminine hygiene products. Particles of talcum powder can travel through the reproductive system, where they become permanently lodged in the ovaries. Over time, cancerous tissue can develop around these particles.
- You lost a loved one who used talcum powder products to ovarian cancer. You may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit after losing a loved one to this disease.
- You or a loved one have a history of using talcum powder and developed mesothelioma. Lawsuits are also being filed against talcum powder manufacturers by consumers who developed mesothelioma. If you or a loved one developed mesothelioma lung cancer and have used talcum powder products for an extended period, then you should speak with one of our attorneys.
Why Should I File a Talcum Powder Lawsuit?
Compensation from a talcum powder lawsuit could help cover the costs associated with medical treatments, lost income, loss of future earnings, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering.
