Risks Associated With the Use of Talc Powder
Talc powder has been a common product in many homes throughout the U.S. for decades. You may also hear this product called talcum powder. It is a primary ingredient in products like baby powder. These products are often used to keep certain areas of the body feeling “dry.”
However, talc powder may not be completely harmless. In fact, there have been studies done over the years that indicate that the use of talc powder could increase your odds of developing:
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer associated with exposure to asbestos. You may be wondering how this connects to talc products. Talc is a mineral that must be mined before use. It is often located close to asbestos. Talc may become contaminated with asbestos during the mining process. You may, therefore, be exposed to asbestos when using talc products.
The use of talc powder may contribute to the development of ovarian cancer, regardless of the presence of asbestos in the talc product.
Liability in Pennsylvania Talc Powder Cancer Cases
Many talc powder cases are being brought against the manufacturers of products containing talc powder. There are, currently, thousands of lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson in progress around the nation. However, you may also be able to build a case if your cancer was caused by products developed by:
- Imerys Talc America
- Vanderbilt Minerals
- Other companies producing talc products
These companies may be held liable for your medical condition due to claims that they were aware of the dangers associated with talc. Lawsuits against certain companies that sell talc products allege that internal missives and communications indicate that the companies were aware of the association between their products and the development of cancer. Often, lawyers handling talc powder cases argue that companies like Johnson & Johnson had a responsibility to warn potential consumers of the risk, but did not do so.
Possible Outcomes of Talc Powder Lawsuits in Pennsylvania
If you can prove a link between your condition and talc powder use, you may be awarded compensation for your medical expenses and other losses through a talc powder lawsuit.
