Who can make a baby powder cancer claim or file a talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit?

Women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or the family members of women who have died as a result of ovarian cancer and have a history of using talcum powder products for perineal hygiene may have grounds to make a talcum powder cancer claim by filing a baby powder ovarian cancer lawsuit. Remember, direct perineal dusting of baby powder is not the only way women are exposed to talc. Using feminine products including tampons, sanitary pads, and diaphragms dusted with talcum powder are another way that talc particles may enter the female reproductive system.

Who is most at risk for developing ovarian cancer from talcum powder?

The results of research that have been published since the early 1970s conclude that women who have used talcum powder or baby powder have a higher chance of developing ovarian cancer than other women who have not used talc-based powders or products dusted with baby powder. The talcum powder ovarian cancer risk becomes more significant with more regular talcum powder use. For example, women who use baby powder weekly have a 33% higher risk of contracting ovarian cancer, while women who use baby powder daily basis are at a 41% higher risk for ovarian cancer than women who do not use talc products at all.

What are the dangers of talcum powder ovarian cancer?

Treatments are available for ovarian cancer, but due to the asymptomatic nature of the disease, many cases of ovarian cancer are not detected until the disease has spread throughout the pelvic region or the abdomen. Ovarian cancer and the treatments for ovarian cancer result in significant pain and suffering. The disease is also fatal; the American Cancer Society estimated that more than 14,000 women died of ovarian cancer during 2013. One expert suggests that of over 20,000 new cases of ovarian cancer each year, 10,000 or 45% of cases can be considered talcum powder ovarian cancer. Women who survive ovarian cancer may face extensive medical bills and lost income from missed time at work, in addition to pain and suffering.

Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?

Baby powder lawsuits is unlikely to result in a talcum powder class action lawsuit, in which each plaintiff receives only symbolic compensation. Instead, the majority of our drug cases are handled as a MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff.

We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?

If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.

How much time do I have to file a baby powder cancer lawsuit?

Most states have talcum powder cancer lawsuit time limits; however, the majority of all persons having been diagnosed with ovarian cancer will fall within those time limits if they contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.
