Talcum powder dangers

If you or a loved one used Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower-to-Shower and developed ovarian cancer, you may have grounds for filing a lawsuit and for significant financial compensation.

Research shows that women who regularly use talcum powder in their genital area are three times as likely to develop ovarian cancer compared to women who do not regularly use talcum powder. One medical expert calculates that the use of talcum powder in a woman’s genital area leads to nearly 45% of the new ovarian cancer cases found each year.

Johnson & Johnson ignored scientific studies for years and still refuses to warn women and their families about the link between Johnson & Johnson’s talcum products and ovarian cancer.

More than 1,200 American women with ovarian cancer and their families have filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson based on the link between use of the company’s talcum powder products and ovarian cancer. Two major victories have already been won:

  • May 2016 – A $55 million verdict was awarded to a woman who suffered through ovarian cancer but survived.
  • February 2016 – A $72 million verdict was awarded to the family of a woman who lost her life to ovarian cancer.

The attorneys at Burns Charest LLP are working to secure compensation for the medical fees, pain, suffering and loss of life associated with ovarian cancer caused by talcum powder use. We offer a free, no-obligation case review.

We are not paid unless we win compensation for your case.
