Talcum powder lawsuits are currently being investigated by the product liability lawyers at the firm of Bernheim & Dolinsky, LLC on behalf of women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer possibly linked to this product. In 2008, a study published by Harvard researchers found that regular use of talcum powder in the perineal area could raise a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer by up to 41%. Although this study and many more medical studies have drawn a correlation between use of talcum powder for feminine hygiene and ovarian cancer, Johnson & Johnson and other companies that make this product have neglected to warn the public of this serious and potentially fatal health risk. This is absolutely unacceptable.
If you or a woman you love has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer which you believe may be related to use of talcum powder, you could be eligible to recover substantial compensation for your damages. We encourage you to become more educated about talcum powder lawsuits, then contact us to learn about how we will defend your rights until you recover the compensation to which you are entitled.
Experts link Talcum Powder to Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer is a highly aggressive disease, but is often not symptomatic at its early stages when treatment is most successful. Instead, many women don’t show symptoms of ovarian cancer until it has already spread to other areas of the body and is thus far more difficult to treat. Only about 20% of women diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer survive. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 14,000 American women will die from ovarian cancer this year alone.
Our attorneys firmly believe that if more women were aware of the potential strong link between use of talcum powder and this deadly disease, they would discontinue use of this product immediately. Tragically, although more than 20 scientific studies from as far back as the 1970s have reported a link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder, the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson and other companies that make this product have clearly valued profit over consumer safety when neglected their duty to provide adequate warnings about this risk to the public. In light of this gross negligence, it is our intention to fight tenaciously until each of our clients who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer linked to talcum powder or lost a loved one to talcum powder ovarian cancer achieves justice and full compensation for their suffering.
