1,200 New Plaintiffs File Suit Against Johnson & Johnson Following Recent Verdicts
Since February of 2016, Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay more than $127 million in total damages to two women that have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using J&J products containing talcum powder.
These two separate verdicts have established that there is a clear scientific link between regular use of talcum powder by women on the genital area and an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.
The first verdict was announced in February of 2016, when a St. Louis jury awarded $72 million in damages to the family of a women who died of ovarian cancer. On May 3rd, a jury awarded another $55 million verdict to a woman that was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
These landmark verdicts in favor of the plaintiffs have compelled more women, who have been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and used J&J Talcum products regularly, to come forward. Approximately 1,200 more women have filed suit against J&J in states throughout the country. These women claim that they were also diagnosed with ovarian cancer after regularly using J&J Baby Powder® & Shower to Shower® products.
The increased publicity of these cases has educated women nationwide of the serious health and safety risks associated with these J&J products.
