Speak with a California Talc Injury Lawyer About Your Ovarian Cancer
Women searching for answers after an ovarian cancer diagnosis may find them in the recent Johnson & Johnson verdicts.
Two separate juries were recently swayed by evidence indicating that the company’s baby powder and other talcum-based products increase the risk for developing ovarian cancer.
Preliminary findings of the ongoing research demonstrate that when talc is placed on female genitalia, it can travel through the vagina and fallopian tubes and into the ovaries where it increases the likelihood of cancerous cells forming.
Talc is commonly found in the below products:
- Baby powder
- Shower gel
- Sanitary pads
- Incontinence pads
If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have used any of these talcum-based products, you should call our office to speak with a California ovarian cancer lawyer.
Johnson & Johnson Verdicts
In February of 2016 a jury awarded the family of a deceased woman $72 million in damages. She had died from ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson baby powder on a daily basis. Seeking restoration, her family was the first to receive financial compensation through a talc lawsuit.
In May of 2016, Johnson & Johnson had to pay $55 million to a woman suffering from ovarian cancer who had to have a hysterectomy in addition to other surgeries. The case progressed for three weeks and featured evidence that linked the use of talcum powder to an increased risk for developing ovarian cancer.
Additionally, an earlier verdict from a 2013 case against Johnson & Johnson did not result in financial compensation for the plaintiff, but the jury did find the company to have been negligent.
With three verdicts against Johnson & Johnson, the legal precedent and scientific evidence are both now in your favor.
