Talcum Powder Lawsuit

Talcum Powder Lawsuit

The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Lawyers, at The Ryan Law Group are investigating injuries caused from using Talcum Powder. Talcum Powder has been known for years to be dangerous or even deadly if breathed in by infants or children. New information has surfaced that shows the use of talcum powder by women is linked to the development of ovarian cancer. Lawsuits are being filed against the pharmaceutical giant, Johnson & Johnson, alleging that talcum powder caused the plaintiffs to develop ovarian cancer. The lawsuits also assert that Johnson & Johnson knew or should have known of the health risk and failed to warn consumers of the danger.

Ovarian Cancer and Talcum Powder

Like many ladies of her era, Deane Berg dusted her genital area with talc powder. It became part of Ms. Berg’s daily routine for more than three decades. Over that time period she specifically applied, both, Shower to Shower and Johnson’s Baby Powder. Shower to Shower was marketed, by Johnson and Johnson, as a feminine hygiene product. One advertisement for the product reads “A sprinkle a day helps keep odor away.” She then found out she developed ovarian cancer.

A few days after a surgery related to ovarian cancer treatment, Deane Berg read an article, provided to her by her oncologist, that asserted the use of talcum powder was suspect in the development of ovarian cancer in numerous women. It also revealed that women that used baby powder or another form of talc powder experienced higher than average rates of ovarian cancer. Deane Berg was the first woman to file a Talcum Powder lawsuit in 2014. The lawsuit alleged that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn her of the risk of developing ovarian cancer that talc powder posed. The court ruled in Ms. Berg’s favor.

Recently, a jury in St. Louis awarded the family of a lady, who passed away from ovarian cancer, $72 million in a Talc Powder lawsuit. The lawsuit alleged that the woman’s ovarian cancer resulted from her use of talc powder for feminine hygiene. The lawyers for the plaintiff argued that the defendants knew about the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer and did nothing to warn consumers of the product.

Talc Powder Case Studies

Most case studies that have been published pertaining to a causal link between talc powder and ovarian cancer conclude that a link between the use of talc powder for feminine hygiene and the development of ovarian cancer exists when the product is used regularly on a long term basis.  The studies assert that ladies who use talc powders in the genital region are at a 33-percent higher risk of developing ovarian cancer in comparison to women who do not use the product.
