Can I file a lawsuit for ovarian cancer from talcum powder?

Women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer, or another related form of cancer after using baby powder or another product containing talcum powder may benefit from filing a personal injury lawsuit. 

Patients who have developed ovarian cancer as a result of using Talc products are strongly encouraged to consult with an attorney who has experience handling these cases. Davis Law Group represents a number of women and their surviving loved ones who were diagnosed with cancer after decades of using talcum powder for feminine hygiene.

Unfortunately, none of these women were aware that the talcum powder commonly found in these products might increase their risk of cancer. It was recently discovered that Johnson & Johnson, one of the leading manufacturers of baby powder and other consumer products containing talcum powder, may have known for decades about the increased risk of cancer to its customers who used talcum powder products.

Benefits of Filing a Talcum Powder Lawsuit

If a legal claim exists and is successful the distributor will be held liable for their negligence and you will be getting compensated for your damages. A study conducted by the All Industry Researching Advisory Council (ARAC) found that victims who reported higher amounts of monetary loss were more likely to hire an attorney.

Equally significant, was finding claimants who hired an attorney received a higher rate of reimbursement per a dollar of economic loss. In 2016 a jury awarded the family of Jackie Fox who died of ovarian cancer as a result of using Johnson and Johnson Talcum products 10 million dollars in damages and 62 million in punitive damages. Currently, there are 1,200 suits that are still pending against the company by women who have suffered similar outcomes.
