Class action lawsuits start the same way, a few brave people coming forward and challenging a much stronger opponent. Their stories validate the experiences of other people and give them the courage to come forward with their own. Over time, a clear trend is established.
This is what is happening with talcum powder lawsuits. We have news of another person who has filed a lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson about the link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder usage. For decades, the company has said the product was safe for feminine needs. But a woman in West Virginia may have died as a result of using the product over many years.
The mother of the plaintiff used talcum powder as advertized by Johnson & Johnson from 1965 until her death this year due to ovarian cancer. She is seeking compensatory and punitive damages, claiming that the company failed to warn people about the dangers of the product and failed to adequately test the product over time, among many other claims.
If you are a woman or know a woman and have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, were you a long-term user of talcum powder? If so, you may be eligible for compensation.
