Wrongful Death Lawyers Reviewing Talc Powder Cases
The wrongful death lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential claims for families of women who regularly and consistently used Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower-to-Shower body powder for feminine hygiene purposes, and subsequently developed ovarian cancer.
Studies suggest that these popular talcum powders may travel through the vagina and into the Fallopian tubes, uterus and ovaries, substantially increasing the risk of ovarian cancer.
The loss of a loved one can have a devastating impact on the surviving children, spouse, parents and other family members. As a result of Johnson & Johnson’s failure to adequately warn about the risks associated with their products, financial compensation may be available through a talcum powder wrongful death lawsuit for families of women who have died from ovarian cancer following use of:
- Johnson’s Baby Powder
- Other Talc Powders
Free consultations are provided to help families determine what rights may be available. All cases are pursued by our ovarian cancer lawyers under a contingency fee agreement, which means that there are no fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained. Request a free case evaluation.
Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Risk
Talc is contained in the widely used Johnson’s Baby Powder, which has also been marketed for use among adult women as an after-shower powder. As a result of the popularity among adult women, Shower-to-Shower was introduced specifically for this purpose.
For decades it has been known that talc particles from Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower-to-Shower may enter the body and increase the risk of ovarian cancer, yet information was withheld from women and consumers.
Johnson & Johnson has engaged in a multi-generational marketing strategy that has encouraged women to place talcum powder in their underwear and around the genitals after every shower to maintain “freshness.”
Mothers have been encouraged to use Johnson’s Baby Powder not only on their children, but on themselves, and the practice has been handed down from generation to generation.
As early as the 1980s, researchers identified a potential link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, warning that using it for feminine hygiene increased the risk of ovarian cancer. Other studies have actually found particles of talc in tumors extracted from the ovaries.
Despite a growing body of evidence that has steadily emerged over the past few decades, ovarian cancer warnings are not provided with talcum powder products.
As a result of the manufacturer’s apparent decision to place their desire for profits before the safety of consumers, financial compensation may be available through a Johnson’s Baby Powder lawsuit, Shower-to-Shower powder lawsuit or an ovarian cancer wrongful death lawsuit.
Free Talcum Powder Wrongful Death Case Evaluations
Following the loss of a loved one from talcum powder ovarian cancer, wrongful death settlement benefits may be available for the financial consequences associated with the death, as well as for the mental anguish, emotional pain and suffering, loss of society, companionship, comfort, protection, care, attention, advice, counsel, training, education or guidance, where applicable.
In the event that an individual who died from ovarian cancer left no surviving spouse, parent or child, wrongful death lawsuits may be available for certain secondary beneficiaries who were financially dependent upon the individual.
No amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, if a talcum powder death may have been prevented, there are certain rights that families have.
It is important to have an experienced wrongful death law firm investigate any potential case to ensure benefits are protected. Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. provides free consultations and case evaluations for families throughout the United States to help determine if damages may be available.
All lawsuits are reviewed under a contingency fee agreement, which means that there are no out of pocket costs to hire our talcum powder wrongful death lawyers, as any attorney fees or reimbursed expenses are only paid out of any monetary recovery obtained for the death.
