About the Investigation:

Did You Or a Loved One Use Talcum Powder for Years Before Developing Cancer?

Talcum powder is made from talc, which is a clay mineral mined from the earth, and is an ingredient in many different hygiene products, cosmetics, deodorants, baby powder products, diaphragms and condoms. Previously filed lawsuits claim that manufacturers of baby powder knew that their product had been contaminated with asbestos as early as the 1970s and did not warn consumers. Asbestos is highly toxic, with no safe exposure levels. One study in 2002 concluded that talc is unsafe for use or inhalation even if it is not contaminated with asbestos. 

Studies have shown that women who regularly used these talcum powder products in their genital area may have an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. When used, the talc particles can enter the vagina and travel to the reproductive organs causing inflammation and potentially allowing the growth of cancer cells in the ovaries and other reproductive organs.

Holding Them Accountable
The manufacturers of talcum powder products did not do enough to keep their customers safe, and they should be held accountable for both negligence and the damage they’ve caused. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer after using baby powder or any other talcum powder product, justice and compensation could be within reach! Call us today for a free consultation. You don’t pay anything unless we win your case.

How Do I Know If I Have a Case?
If you or a loved one were diagnosed with cervical, uterine, ovarian or endometrial cancer in 2000 or later, after using talcum powder (including talc products or baby powder) in the genital area, our attorneys may be able to help you.  If you have a loved one who passed away from any of these cancers after October 2019 you may also be entitled to compensation.
