Talcum Powder Lawsuit Attorneys

Handling Talcum Powder Injury and Death Claims in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Across the Country

Talc is a commonly mined mineral comprised of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. For years, talc (commonly called talcum powder) has been used in a variety of consumer products, including Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.

Over the last decades, doctors and scientists have discovered evidence that talcum powder may be linked to ovarian cancer, an extremely aggressive and deadly disease in women. The earliest studies on this topic date back to 1971. Since then, dozens of peer reviewed scientific studies have been published that demonstrate that women who use talcum powder products in the genital area are at a 20 to 30 % increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.

Internal company documents and outside testing of talcum powder has also provided evidence that talcum powder products could be contaminated by other harmful substances, such as asbestos, heavy metals, and arsenic and that the chemical fragrances in the products could be harmful as well.

Ashcraft & Gerel currently represents hundreds of women in lawsuits filed across the country against Johnson & Johnson and other companies responsible for developing and marketing these products. We are on the forefront of the litigation in leadership roles in state and federal courts. If you or a loved one used Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower and developed ovarian cancer, we want to discuss your potential case and, if possible, help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
