Maine Talcum Powder Lawsuit Attorney

Call Today for a Free Talc Lawsuit Consultation

The attorneys at Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. are now accepting personal injury and wrongful death cases linked with Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products. Research has shown that the company’s baby powder and Shower to Shower powders, when used for feminine hygiene in the genital area, significantly increases a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer. If you have been diagnosed with cancer or have suffered the untimely loss of a family member after using these products, contact our firm to speak with a Maine attorney about your legal options. You may be entitled to pursue compensation from Johnson & Johnson for their failure to adequately warn the public of the risks associated with perineal use of talc-containing products.

Case evaluations are provided free of charge. Fill out a brief online consultation form to get started.

Johnson & Johnson Knew About Ovarian Cancer Risk

Research as far back as the 1970s has shown that talc, the natural mineral found in talcum powders, can increase a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer by up to 40 percent. Tiny talc particles can migrate into the body, where it can implant in the tissues of the ovaries and cause irritation. Over time, this can lead to the formation of malignant tumors. Since ovarian cancer usually doesn’t present symptoms, it can go undiagnosed long enough for it to spread through the pelvis and abdomen, at which point it is much more difficult to treat. In some cases, it can be fatal.

Johnson & Johnson is accused of knowing that their product was unsafe and yet refusing to add a warning label to their bottles to protect consumers. So far, the company has been ordered to pay $127 million to end two talcum powder lawsuits, with more than 1,200 cases still pending. Future settlements are likely.
