There’s Still Time to File Your Talcum Powder Lawsuit

Talcum Powder links to cancer

Slater & Zurz is still taking clients who suspect their health issues stemmed from baby powder use.

Linked to ovarian cancer and other cancers of female reproductive organs, talcum powder – also known commonly, and labeled, as baby powder – has been alleged to contain cancer-causing asbestos. Women have been using the powder as part of their daily hygiene routine for decades.

Billions of dollars in judgments have already been secured for women and it’s not too late to seek compensation for you. If you suspect you developed cancer after using talcum powder products, there is still time to file your claim. Call Slater & Zurz to schedule your appointment today. The consult is free.

Studies Have Shown Links For Decades

Juries in a pair of lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson have delivered verdicts for victims, including $55 million in damages for a cancer survivor and a $72 million award for another. Many more women have achieved relief for their cancer diagnoses and you could, too.

Thousands have filed lawsuits against the largest baby powder manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson. Of the more than 15,000 claims, one judgment returned by a jury awarded $4.69 billion, along with punitive damages, to a group of 22 Missouri ovarian cancer victims alleging asbestos in the powder caused ovarian cancer and mesothelioma – cancer of the lining of the internal organs.

Commonly used by women for personal hygiene, the link between talcum powder and cancer has been studied for more than 40 years. As medical research showed talc particles attached to the lining of reproductive organs, and its possible links to cancer.

In fact, the possible link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder was discovered in a 1971 study. The study revealed talc particles in the ovarian tissue of cancer patients, demonstrating an increased risk when using the powder on genitals, sanitary pads, diaphragms, and condoms.

For decades, powder makers sat back and watched the profits roll in, pushing endearing commercials of mothers just out of the shower, or babies dusted after a diaper change.

When the public became aware that talcum powder made by these companies had possible links to cancer, those same manufacturers added insult to injury by denying any knowledge of the threat – in some cases for more than 60 years.

Johnson & Johnson regularly enjoys annual profits in the billions, claiming more than $80 billion last year alone. While talcum powder claims won’t put the multi-national corporation out of business, they will go a long way to making products safe for human use.
