Many North Carolinians, like people all over the world, use talcum powder as part of their daily hygiene routine. Recently, there has been an influx of product liability cases due to talcum powder’s cancer-causing ingredients. Companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Colgate-Palmolive, Whittaker, Clark & Daniels and Justice have all faced many lawsuits by victims alleging exposure to their asbestos-containing products. These companies often deny the dangerousness of their products; however, many people bringing products liability lawsuits have been able to recover compensation for their illnesses.
At the Law Offices of Wallace & Graham, we are dedicated to helping asbestos and mesothelioma victims in North Carolina and nationwide. We are experienced in bringing companies such as Johnson & Johnson to justice for their actions. Evidence shows that these companies knew about the risks associated with their products for decades, yet they still continued to produce and market them to the public.
Talcum powder has been linked to ovarian cancer. Studies show that its harmful particles travel through the vagina, uterus and fallopian tubes into the ovaries. Daily asbestos product exposure can result in serious, often fatal diseases such asbestosis, mesothelioma and other related cancers. Because of the typically lengthy latency period of these diseases, victims may not be diagnosed until decades later, when the disease has progressed to a more serious stage.
The compassionate attorneys at The Law Offices of Wallace & Graham understand the devastating financial and emotional toll that an asbestos-related illness can take on victims and their families. We aggressively pursue compensation in product liability lawsuits on behalf of victims who developed ovarian cancer from talcum powder exposure.
