Goldstein & Greco has a history of representing those harmed by dangerous pharmaceutical products, including Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based baby powder, a product that many women have used for decades that is now known to cause ovarian cancer. We understand the complex nature of these lawsuits and we’re prepared to help you get the justice you deserve.
Many women have used talc powder as part of their daily self-care routine for years. Unfortunately, studies show that the use of talc powder can increase a woman’s chance of ovarian cancer by up to 30%. Despite having knowledge of this, Johnson & Johnson continued to sell their talc-based powder, and now thousands of women have developed ovarian cancer as a result. If you’re one of them, contact Goldstein & Greco today to learn more about your legal options and how our firm can fight for you.
Ovarian cancer comes with a wide range of symptoms. Keeping an eye out for the appearance of these symptoms can, ultimately, save your life if addressed timely. Some of the most common ovarian cancer symptoms are as follows:
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and have used talc-based baby powder in the past, you should speak with a physician as soon as you can–early detection of cancer is always better than late detection. Additionally, if you believe you were harmed due to talc-based powder, we are here to help you get your rightful compensation.
According to a Reuters report, Johnson & Johnson knew of the various dangers that talc posed to those using it since the 1970s, but instead of pulling the product from shelves, they concealed this evidence and continued to sell the product. In fact, it wasn’t until midway through 2020 that Johnson & Johnson finally decided to stop selling talc-based baby powder.
Over the years, countless lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson regarding ovarian cancer caused by the use of their talc-based baby powder, and, fortunately, many of these plaintiffs won their rightful compensation as well. Lawsuits range from a $29 million case, a $70 million case, and even a $2.1 billion class-action settlement for 22 women who developed ovarian cancer from using this talc powder.
As of now, Johnson & Johnson has set aside roughly $3.9 billion for lawsuits regarding their cancer-causing baby powder. If you believe you developed ovarian cancer (or another type of cancer, such as lung, stomach, or uterine cancer) after using this talc product, there’s a strong chance you have a valid product liability claim against Jonhson & Johnson.
