Talcum Powder Attorney

Representation for Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Cases

Talcum powder may be responsible for as many as 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer diagnosed each year. Widely available and marketed for both adults and babies, talcum powder is used to absorb moisture on the body, but studies have shown that it may be dangerous. Repeated use of talcum powder products for feminine hygiene has been linked to ovarian cancer.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum powder products, especially those manufactured by pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson (J&J), Kalfus & Nachman PC can discuss how you can file a claim for compensation. Our Virginia product liability lawyers mean business and aggressively fight the opposition at every turn. You deserve nothing less than a surefire legal champion in your corner. You deserve Kalfus & Nachman.

Talc Powder Ovarian Cancer Case Victories

Talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuits gained traction of late, thanks to the conclusion of the first lawsuit for ovarian cancer from baby powder in October of 2013 (Deane Berg v. Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc., U.S. District Court, District of South Dakota, Case No. 09-4179). The jury in this federal court case found that Deane Berg, the plaintiff, had developed ovarian cancer as a result of frequent and regular use of Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, two Johnson & Johnson products that contain talcum powder. This court win has served as a catalyst for thousands of women and families of women to step forward to file baby powder ovarian cancer lawsuits. These cases are likely to join forces in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). A jury recently found that Johnson & Johnson knew of the cancer risks associated with its talc products but failed to warn consumers.

Mesothelioma Linked to Talcum Powder As Well

Ovarian cancer is not the only aggressive form of cancer that has been linked to Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products. In New Jersey, a man claimed inhaling dust from J&J talcum powder products for decades due to regular use caused him to develop mesothelioma, a form of cancer that primarily develops in the lungs after repeated exposure to asbestos. In April 2018, a $37 million verdict for compensatory damages was rewarded to him, and the jury must still decide if punitive damages should be awarded. The recent case result is noteworthy as it is a court’s first acknowledgement that talcum powder products contain trace amounts of asbestos, a known carcinogen.
