Talcum Powder Injury Lawyers in Macon
Protecting the Rights of Talcum Powder Injury Victims
When a business places an unreasonably dangerous product into the marketplace, they are legally responsible for the injuries their customers suffer as a result of using their hazardous product. Businesses that are aware of the risks associated with the use of their products but nevertheless market them without disclosing the known dangers of the product to consumers commit a particularly egregious wrong.
If you developed a serious health complication, such as ovarian cancer, it may be the result of prolonged and repeated exposure to a dangerous material, such as asbestos contained in talcum powder. As a result, you may be entitled to recover a legal remedy compensating you for the losses arising from your medical condition.

Known Risks of Talcum Powder Use
Talcum powder is a popular product used by infants and women to prevent rashes by absorbing moisture and reducing chafing between surfaces.
Talcum powder naturally contains asbestos, a substance that is strongly connected to causing the following conditions:
- Ovarian cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Fallopian tube cancer
For decades, asbestos was commonly used with construction materials. However, when the dangers of asbestos exposure were brought to light, companies who carelessly used it in in their manufacturing processes and products were found liable for hundreds of thousands of asbestos-related injuries such as mesothelioma—a form of cancer affecting the lungs. Today, companies take care to avoid using asbestos in their products and construction materials.
However, many of today’s infant and female hygiene products containing talcum have been connected to the development of cancer. Over the past few years, juries have awarded millions of dollars in damages against talcum powder producers, such as Johnson & Johnson, for injuries associated with developing ovarian cancer after continued exposure to talcum products containing asbestos.
In 2016, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation issued a transfer order consolidating a number of talcum powder injury cases for pretrial proceedings in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.
If you or a loved one is 21 years of age or older and used either “Johnson & Johnson” or “Shower to Shower” talcum powder for at least 4 years continuously, and were diagnosed from 2000 to the present with ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, or fallopian tube cancer, call now for you may be entitled to compensation.
