By now, you’ve probably seen a TV commercial informing ovarian cancer patients of a recent surge in baby powder lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson.
Women Say Talcum Powder Causes Ovarian Cancer
Numerous law firms have begun producing commercials on the topic, alerting women to the possibility of legal action. In many of these ads, attorneys say that decades of medical research have linked Johnson & Johnson’s popular talc-based body powders to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. But as many women have noted, the baby powders don’t have any warning about this potentially devastating risk.
Today, thousands of women have filed suit against Johnson & Johnson, accusing the multinational corporation of concealing vital safety information – information that could have saved lives. They’re demanding compensation, money to cover rising medical expenses, lost work and pain and suffering.
Patient, Widower Win Millions In Talc Powder Verdicts
But this litigation is far from new. In fact, three talcum powder lawsuits have already been heard before a jury. The verdict? After reviewing relevant medical evidence, and damning internal corporate documents, three juries have held Johnson & Johnson responsible for hiding the link between baby powder and ovarian cancer. One woman was awarded $55 million in compensation, the New York Daily News reports. In a separate case, the family of a woman who lost her battle to cancer won a staggering $72 million.
Legal experts believe these three verdicts are only the beginning. While thousands have already filed suit, observers say there may be thousands of other ovarian cancer patients who have yet to step forward.
