I am not the sort of person that sues when something goes wrong. Is it really necessary to file a lawsuit?

Most of us would rather not get involved in a lawsuit, for a variety of reasons. But if you or a loved one has suffered from a severe illness from a dangerous drug, or died as a result of a medical product, you are bound to encounter significant medical fees. Between surgeries, treatment, hospital stays, long term care, and other costs, the medical expenses can be enough to cripple a family financially. The cost of healthcare is constantly rising, making it impossible to predict how much you may require to cover medical costs. No amount of money can undo the wrong caused by a dangerous drug or medical device. What a lawsuit can do it provide financial security to your family, and bring attention to company's violation of consumer trust. Establishing the $8.9 billion victims compensation trust is the closest J&J will come to admitting guilt, and if you qualify you deserve to access this compensation.

What are the time limits for filing a baby powder lawsuit for ovarian cancer?

In most cases, a diagnosis of ovarian cancer after using talcum powder will fall within the time limits if an attorney is contacted in the near future.
