Talcum Powder Lawsuits
Orange County Injury Lawyers
Recent medical studies have confidently concluded that regular talcum powder use, or baby powder as it is often called, for feminine hygiene dramatically increases a woman’s risk to develop ovarian cancer or cancer of the fallopian tubes. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with either of these cancers and you suspect talc powder usage could be to blame, you can take legal action to seek compensation. Thousands of talcum powder lawsuits have already been filed across the country against large pharmaceutical companies, such as Johnson & Johnson, and you should be filing one as well.

How Talc Powder Causes Cancer
Talcum powder is actually a fine, naturally-occurring mineral that is further processed to be even finer and softer. While it may be completely harmless outside of the body, internal use, such as for feminine hygiene purposes, cause a unique and unexpected danger. Finite particles of talc can collect within the body, gradually growing in size as months or years advance. The growth significantly increases a woman’s chance of developing a cancerous tumor, either in the ovaries or fallopian tubes. Mesothelioma is actually caused in a similar process, by microscopic asbestos fibers accruing within the lungs.
Product Liability in Talc Powder Cases
Any company that produces a product for consumer use has a responsibility to ensure it is safe, both now and years later. Failing to do so will create the opportunity for injured consumers to file a lawsuit against them. Johnson & Johnson has already lost two lawsuits for their talcum powder products.
Previous talcum powder lawsuits have concluded that:
- Talc powder does in fact cause ovarian cancer.
- Johnson & Johnson knew of the dangers of talc powder.
- Johnson & Johnson did not do anything to warn consumers.
With all three points proven in court, the plaintiff is nearly-guaranteed to win sizeable compensation to help pay for medical bills and pain and suffering.
