Talcum Powder

Talc Cancer Lawyer

talcum powderDid you develop ovarian cancer after using talcum powder? You may have a case!

The talc cancer attorneys at Peterson & Associates, P.C. are currently representing individuals who have used talc-containing products and have developed ovarian cancer. For more than 40 years now, talc — a fibrous mineral — has been linked to an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.

Talc products such as Johnson & Johnson baby powder and Shower to Shower have been marketed to women for decades as a feminine hygienic product. Unfortunately, there have not been warnings regarding the possibility of ovarian cancer despite studies regarding the association.

To discuss a possible claim in a free consultation, call (816) 298-8708 today.

International Agency for Research on Cancer Classification

Using the evidence from human studies, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has identified talc-based body powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” when used on the genitals for hygienic purposes. This means that using talc-based products in the ways in which they were marketed may cause cancer in humans. This evaluation was based on human evidence showing an excess in risk for perineal use of talc powder.

History of Legal Action

Recent lawsuits have come to light claiming that the use of talc powder has resulted in the development of ovarian cancer. On two separate occasions, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay verdicts to victims or their families as a result of the lawsuit. Thousands more claims are pending regarding this type of legal matter.

Just recently, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $72 million to the family of a woman who died of ovarian cancer. The woman's family claimed she used J&J's talc-based products for many years. Just a few weeks later, they were ordered to pay $55 million to a woman who developed ovarian cancer after using the company's products for decades. Over a thousand similar cases are still pending from individuals who used Johnson & Johnson's talc-based products.
