Babcock Partners, LLC, one of the nation's top personal injury law firms, is now representing women who have contracted cancer as a result of the long-term use of talcum powder. As those who — click here for more information will learn, juries have recently awarded damages of as much as $417 million to women who contracted ovarian cancer after using talcum powder for years.
With a growing body of evidence suggesting that talcum powder can be carcinogenic, regular users of products containing it may have been exposed to life-threatening risk without warning, with product manufacturers in some cases concealing information about the dangers. As more details at Babcock Partners’ website make clear, the firm has repeatedly been recognized as one of the nation's most capable and successful in the field of personal injury law.
"In August, a jury in Los Angeles imposed a $417 million judgment against Johnson & Johnson after deciding that the company withheld evidence that its talcum powder products could cause cancer," said Babcock Partners founder Stephen Babcock. "This was only the latest in a growing number of cases where talcum powder manufacturers have been held responsible for contributing to ovarian cancer and other health problems among their customers. We're proud to announce that we are prepared to fight for the rights of women who have contracted ovarian cancer as the result of using talcum powder themselves."
As a naturally astringent substance that absorbs moisture and reduces friction, talcum powder has been used in a wide variety of personal hygiene products and cosmetics for many years. About a decade ago, the International Agency for Research on Cancer first warned that the material could contribute to the development of ovarian cancer if used, as some product manufacturers had been advising, as part of a regular feminine hygiene routine.
Since then, a number of studies have implicated the long-term use of talcum powder in the development of diseases ranging from ovarian cancer to mesothelioma. A February 2016 verdict from a jury in St. Louis marked the first time that a manufacturer of a talcum powder product had been held financially responsible, with jurors finding that Johnson & Johnson had contributed directly to the death from ovarian cancer of an Alabama resident.
With Babcock Partners now representing women who have contracted ovarian cancer themselves as a result of using talcum powder, more victims and their families will obtain the compensation to which they are entitled. All those who might have been affected are invited to learn more about the issue and schedule a free consultation at the Babcock Partners website.
