Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Claims
If you or a loved one used either Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder or Shower to Shower Talcum Powder for feminine hygiene on your genital area and later received a diagnosis of ovarian cancer, then you may have grounds to file a lawsuit. Gerald R. Stahl will investigate your situation and advise you on your right to file a claim.
Talcum powder lawsuits have been filed due to serious side effects, including the development of ovarian cancer. There have been large verdicts across the country against Johnson & Johnson and other companies where juries have looked at evidence which showed that the companies were aware of the dangers for years.
Why is Talcum Powder Dangerous?
When talcum powder is applied to the genitals, it does not break down in the body. The tiny chemicals in the powder can become lodged in the uterus or ovaries. The body then may be unable to break down these particles, so they can remain trapped in the tissue for years thus leading to possible cancer. These small particles can lead to the development of cancerous tissue or tumors over time. This cancer can take years to discover.
Johnson & Johnson Talcum linked to Ovarian Cancer
Johnson & Johnson and other talcum powder manufacturers knew the risks that Talcum powder caused cancer and ignored them. They failed to warn women of the dangers of cancer, and continued to market and sell talc as a legitimate feminine hygiene product. Among other things, these lawsuits claim that manufacturers intentionally misled customers.
Johnson & Johnson now faces hundreds of lawsuits.
