Broken trust in a household name
Johnson and Johnson, a name synonymous with baby care and health products, has been ordered to pay $55 million to a woman who claims that years of using Johnson and Johnson’s talc-powder containing products caused her to develop ovarian cancer. She is not the only woman who has come forward. Approximately 1,200 lawsuits have been filed against J&J, accusing the company of knowingly failing to educate and warn the public of the increased risk of ovarian cancer for women who use their Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Powder products.
A similar verdict against J&J occurred in February of this year, when the jury awarded $72 million to the family of a woman who used Johnson & Johnson talc powder products for years and who passed away from ovarian cancer.
If you, or someone you love has developed ovarian cancer after regularly using Johnson & Johnson brand products that contain talc, do not hesitate to contact a personal injury lawyer. Mounting medical bills should be the responsibility of those who withheld the safety concerns associated with their products, not those who suffer from the negligence of said companies. If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer as a result of trusting the Johnson & Johnson brand and are unsure what to do next, please do not hesitate to call us. Our experienced team can help you receive the justice you deserve.
