Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) October 4, 2016 - Johnson & Johnson has been sued for the alleged link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder – a major best seller for the company. They promoted talcum powders for decades to use after every shower and to dust in undergarments for personal freshness.

Florence Kuntz’s daughter was 43-years-old when she was told she had ovarian cancer. She had been using Johnson & Johnson talcum powder for over 23 years for feminine hygiene. Kuntz filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging numerous cases of ovarian cancer, as a result of prolonged use of talcum powder around the genitals, that could have been averted had warning labels been placed on Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower products.

According to a study first published in 1982, prolonged use of talcum powder in the female genital area increased the risk of ovarian cancer by 92 percent. Dr. Daniel Cramer, who conducted the study, advised Johnson & Johnson’s Dr. Bruce Semple that the company should put warning labels on products containing talc. Thus, providing women with the information they need to make informed decisions for their health. Other research, studying the connection of ovarian cancer and talc powder, found minute talc particles present in ovarian tumors.

Kuntz’s statement of claim alleged that Johnson & Johnson knew about the risks of their talc products, chose not to warn consumers and that data pertaining to the high risk of ovarian cancer was available as far back as the 1970s. Recent talcum powder lawsuits have gone to trial with one jury handing down an award of $72 million and another $55 million.

Losing a loved one and filing a wrongful lawsuit is not only stressful but also expensive. Keeping up with the medical bills and trying to pay regular monthly expenses can be also be difficult. The Kuntz family may be interested in applying for a lawsuit loan to help them financially while they wait for their case to be resolved.

Litigation funding, also referred to as pre-settlement funding, is sent to an approved plaintiff within 48 hours after the application has been approved. The fast cash allows the litigation process to run its course as the plaintiff has the necessary financial backing to wait for case resolution. “You do not need to agree to an unfair settlement because you need money right away to meet medical and other important expenses,” indicated Daren Monroe, Litigation Funding Corporation representative.
