Large corporations that manufacture popular products like to make a profit, and sometimes, are not honest about what’s in them. Baby powder may seem like a very harmless thing to purchase and use, but a lot of evidence points to Johnson & Johnson’s knowledge that their baby powder contained asbestos, a potent toxin and carcinogen, or cancer-causing substance. Many women who used the talc later developed ovarian cancer. If you’re one of these women, Lassiter Law of Houston, Texas is here to help you.
What Injuries Have Occurred Because of Talc Baby Powder from Johnson & Johnson?
There have already been several lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson for cancer-related injuries caused by the use of their talc baby powder. Even as long ago as 1971, one British study showed that 75% of the ovarian and cervical tumors removed from 13 different women had particles of talc in them. Another 2018 study showed that there was a “consistent association between perineal talc use and ovarian cancer.” Lassiter Law of Houston, Texas understands how devastating ovarian cancer can be and stands ready to fight for your rights.
What Type of Compensation Can I Expect for These Types of Repercussions?
