Johnson & Johnson® has been facing talcum powder lawsuits for years as more and more women come forward who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum powder products for decades.
If you’re suffering from ovarian cancer after years of regular talcum powder use, you could be entitled to substantial compensation. Contact Johnson & Lapham LLC at 513-536-6000 to find out if you qualify for a talcum powder claim.
For many decades, women thought it was safe to use talcum-based products on sanitary pads, undergarments or on their body directly in order to keep their groin area comfortable, dry and fresh. During this process, the reproductive tracts of many of the women who used talcum powder were exposed to risks.
Any woman who has regularly used talcum powder, which reportedly 20% of American women do, may be at risk of developing ovarian cancer caused by exposure to talc. Although the debate about the true severity of the risks posed by this product still rages on, educating yourself and determining whether talcum powder could be partly or fully responsible for an ovarian cancer diagnosis is your safest bet.
Despite the findings about the severe long-term health risks of talcum powder, Johnson & Johnson® has continuously defended the safety of their product. Women are filing lawsuits across the country alleging that the company knew about the dangers and failed to properly warn consumers about the potential risk of ovarian cancer through their marketing and packaging.
In fact, plaintiffs argue that Johnson & Johnson® knew about the health risks for more than 40 years.
