Talcum Powder Lawsuit Attorneys
Many women have filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson after it was revealed the company’s talcum-based products, including Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower, can increase the risk of cancer.
Studies dating back to the 1970s, and as recent as 2016, link talcum powder, a main ingredient in Johnson & Johnson products, to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Some women have successfully sued Johnson & Johnson for knowing about the risks and failing to warn women about its product's dangers.
If you or someone you love have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and you believe it was caused by talcum powder use, you may be entitled to file a talcum powder lawsuit. Victims may be entitled to compensation for past, current and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of consortium and more.
Talcum Powder Lawsuit Verdicts
It has been estimated that hundreds of talcum powder lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson.
In 2016, the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer in October 2015 was awarded awarded $72 million. The woman used Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products for more than three decades for feminine hygiene.
In 2013, another woman who also used Johnson & Johnson’s products for over 30 years filed a suit after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Though the jury agreed the company’s products were defective and it failed to warn consumers, no damages were awarded.

Studies Link Talc and Ovarian Cancer
A recent study published in Epidemiology revealed that women who regularly used talc for feminine hygiene had a 33 percent higher risk of ovarian cancer. In the study, researchers asked two sets of more than 2,000 women with and without ovarian cancer about their use of talcum powder.
The lead author of the study, Daniel Cramer, first reported a link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder in 1982. His initial study revealed a 92 percent increased risk of cancer among women who used talcum powder. He was also one of the experts used in the 2016 trial against Johnson & Johnson.
As far back as 1971, studies linked talc to ovarian cancer. One of the first studies identified talc particles embedded within ovarian cancer tumors. Since then, nearly two dozen other studies have been conducted in an effort to identify the risks of using talcum powder for feminine hygiene.
The American Cancer Society and National Cancer Institute recently added talcum powder as a product that may increase the risk of ovarian cancer.
