How to File a Talcum Powder Claim
Do you frequently use Johnson’s® baby powder, Shower to Shower® body powder, another talcum powder brand or any talc-based product? For example: Do you use any talc-based products for feminine hygiene? And finally, were you diagnosed with ovarian or cervical cancer? If so, you may qualify for compensation through a talcum powder claim. According to the American Cancer Society, talcum powder used on or near the genitals increases ovarian cancer risk by 33%.
Filing a Talcum Powder Claim After Your Cancer Diagnosis
Although many studies now link ongoing talcum powder use and cancer, Johnson & Johnson as well as other companies never added any warning labels. However, the company decided to permanently halt all talcum powder sales in the U.S. in May 2020 due to ongoing cancer litigation. In addition, the brand recalled 33,000 bottles after FDA testing discovered asbestos contamination in October 2019.
Before you hire an attorney to represent your talcum powder claim, consider your options. Because some lawyers specialize in certain areas (i.e., criminal, real estate, tax), they act quickly on viable cases. Therefore, look for a talcum powder lawyer who:
- has experience with talcum powder claims
- can find expert witnesses to testify on your behalf
- will provide the resources needed to build an effective case
Above all else, having a lawyer file your talcum powder claim is much easier and less confusing than filing yourself. Once you’ve decided to sue, a lawyer can handle everything from paperwork to preparing evidence for trial. Since May 2017, juries across the country awarded more than $2 billion to victims who filed a talcum powder claim. About half won multimillion-dollar payouts for ovarian cancer; the rest involved terminal mesothelioma cases.
