Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit

Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuits Continue To Be Filed

Talcum powder cancer lawyers continue to accept new clients that are making the connection between their disease and using talc

Thursday, May 25, 2023 - More and more people are receiving a cancer diagnosis and making the connection between their illness and their past use of Johnson's Baby Powder containing talc. Talcum powder has been shown to contain asbestos and may cause ovarian cancer or mesothelioma, the gradual deterioration of the delicate lining of the lungs causing suffocation. If you are one of the many people looking for answers you may be eligible to file a talcum powder cancer lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson or many other makers of talcum powder. According to Forbes Advisor, the baby powder manufacturers that have been listed in lawsuits against them include such major names as Johnson & Johnson, Colgate-Palmolive, Imerys Talc North America, Whittaker, Clark & Daniels, and Vanderbilt Minerals, manufacturers of Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, Gold Bond No Mess Powder Spray, Gold Bond Body Powder, Gold Bond Extra Strength Body Powder, and Old Spice powder respectively. Talcum powder cancer lawsuits are on hold until the summer of 2023 because the court is assessing the possibility of plaintiffs accepting an offer of $9 billion dollars by Johnson & Johnson to resolve approximately 40,000 talcum powder lawsuits that are pending in the court. That number could easily double or triple as lawyers convert those who have merely filed their intent to file a lawsuit with their attorney and then actually do so. Lawyers continue, however, to sign up clients with ovarian cancer and mesothelioma every day and are filing lawsuits.

Talcum powder cancer lawyers are experienced in deciding if one may or may not qualify to file a lawsuit and may represent dozens or hundreds of clients just like you. Talcum powder cancer victims may be eligible to file a lawsuit even if their talc use occurred decades ago provided that their cancer diagnosis was relatively recent. The statute of limitations for product liabilities lawsuits varies from state to state and generally runs from two to ten years making it imperative to contact a talcum powder cancer lawyer for the precise answer. To complicate matters, the starting date for the statute to begin could be either the date of one's cancer diagnosis or the date one became aware of the cancer. Another criterion to examine before filing a talcum powder lawsuit is the frequency and duration of one's talcum powder use. Generally speaking, an ideal plaintiff would have used talcum powder for the purpose of feminine hygiene, after or between showers for at least a year. Others may have developed mesothelioma from using talcum powder regularly and for more than a year. Being in receipt of one's medical records goes a long way toward making a case for talcum powder cancer. In addition, if a person has never worked in a government building that is notorious for containing asbestos insulation, or in another profession like building construction or auto mechanics where asbestos is likely to be present, the chances of one's cancer being caused by baby powder use increase. The court will require a record of employment in the discovery phase of a trial.
