Beginning in the early 1970s with the discovery of talc particles in ovarian cancer tissues, a significant amount of research has been directed and learning about the risk for developing ovarian cancer from talcum powder use.
Women who use talcum powder for feminine hygiene on a weekly basis are 33% more likely to develop ovarian cancer than other women; those who use the substance daily face a 41% increase in ovarian cancer risk.
This information has concerned Johnson & Johnson executives for decades, yet the company has resisted warning the public. Now the truth is out, and women and families harmed by talcum powder ovarian cancer are suing J&J in great numbers.
Filing a talcum powder lawsuit for ovarian cancer serves to hold the company accountable for choosing profits over consumer safety, while also securing the compensation those harmed need and deserve.
Simply put, talcum powder cancer lawsuits can be filed by women who have developed ovarian cancer and have a history of using talcum powder. In some cases, talcum powder lawsuits are filed by family members of women who died as a result of ovarian cancer after using talcum powder. Those who fit this description are seeking clarification on the qualifications required to participate in a talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit.
Our law firm offers free, no-obligation, confidential consultations to anyone who feels they may have a claim, but we have outlined the basic qualifications in this section. In general, these are factors that are considered in each talcum powder cancer lawsuit claim.
For persons and family members of persons who meet these qualifications, it is likely you will be eligible to file a J&J talcun powder lawsuit for ovarian cancer. There are many reasons you may consider filing a claim. First, talcum powder lawyers believe women who have suffered as a result of ovarian cancer may be eligible for compensation for the expense of medical treatment, pain, suffering, and loss associated with the disease.
More meaningful than that to some is the opportunity to hold a large corporation accountable for the safety of its products and its business practices. We know Johnson & Johnson executives have engaged in a decades-long effort to conceal talcum powder risks from the public, resulting in many women using talcum powder products on a daily basis and exposing themselves to a heightened risk for ovarian cancer.
