Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Lawsuit Lawyers
Are you familiar with the Johnson & Johnson talcum powder class-action lawsuits? Most recently, you may have read about Deane Berg of South Dakota, a physician's assistant who was diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer. Her disease has been linked to her use of Johnson & Johnson products. This is an important women's health issue, one that can no longer be ignored.
For decades, hundreds of thousands of consumers have been exposing themselves to big pharma's talc-based products. These products include household-brand-name Johnson & Johnson's Shower to Shower and their extremely popular baby powder, as well. Over the decades, the brand became an icon within the American family home, a symbol for health, happiness, and new life. The soothing white powder became a standard, a part of a routine key to keeping your newborn bouncing babies content. Johnson & Johnson's Baby Powder commercials featured adorably chubby cheeks, heart-melting baby giggles, and music-box-style lullabies. These television commercials brimmed with visions of health and happiness. How could these products be dangerous?
Sadly, for years researchers and corporations have known the dangers of talcum powder products, but this information was largely withheld from the every-day consumer. Even Deane Berg, who worked in the medical field, was kept in the dark about the dangers of this mineral to women's health. For years, women's reproductive tracts have been exposed to talc, also known as magnesium silicate, through feminine hygiene products such as sanitary pads, forms of birth control including condoms, and elsewhere. Talc powder had been praised for its safety and for its effectiveness in controlling vaginal odors and feminine discomfort. Talc is also a listed ingredient in some makeups, foot powders, deodorant, and more. Today we are increasingly aware of its inflammatory effects and, therefore, its dangers.
Today, over one thousand consumers are suing Johnson & Johnson for product/pharmaceutical liability and, in the most heartbreaking of circumstances, wrongful death cases, as well. However, in order to be awarded the compensation that your family needs, you'll need top-notch legal representation. Giant pharmaceutical companies hire only the best and the brightest to protect their assets, so you'll need to be prepared.
If you're a woman who has used Johnson & Johnson's products and you are now suffering from ovarian cancer or another debilitating disease that might be connected to the use of magnesium silicate products, you are not alone. If you've put your trust into this household brand, and you're now suffering the consequences, please let us help. You and your loved ones may be entitled to compensation for:
- medical bills
- lost wages
- loss of future earnings
- pain and suffering
- emotional distress
- loss of companionship and consortium
- costs associated with forfeited travel plans
- wrongful death
- …and other relevant damages

Know that we are thinking of you and yours, of all who have been affected by this negligently distributed product. We hope that you are able to surround yourself with loved ones during this difficult time.
Victim's immediate family and close friends may seek financial compensation for wrongful death in the event that another person, organization, or company, such as Johnson & Johnson, might be held liable for the death. Oftentimes this financial compensation is vital to the quality of life of the surviving family members. Funeral and burial expenses can be astronomical, and loss of a spouse's future earnings can be devastating. Depending on the circumstances, immediate family members, such as siblings, parents, and spouse's, as well as grandparents and long-term significant others may be eligible survivors.
