Litigation regarding Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder has been ongoing regarding a link between the asbestos-contaminated talcum in some of their products and ovarian cancer. A $2 billion verdict was recently reached regarding this case. Johnson & Johnson have been accused of consciously disregarding consumer safety, despite the allegation that they were fully aware that the talcum in their products could cause cancer. Brown has been working on this litigation from its start and predicts that it will soon see a final resolution.
Johnson & Johnson’s talcum baby powder has been pulled from the market, but that doesn’t mean much for the women who have already been injured by this product. Brown points to a crisis in leadership as an element of this popular company’s downfall in regard to this product. Studies have revealed traces of asbestos in past and talcum-containing current baby powder, and this revelation has deeply hurt Johnson & Johnson’s credibility.
Brown predicts that the litigation regarding asbestos-contaminated talcum powder is likely to resolve soon. Due to the speed at which this litigation is progressing, if an injured person waits to participate they might lose their chance at compensation. If you or a loved one suffered due to this product, it’s important to obtain documentation of the cancer as soon as possible and seek legal counsel immediately to discuss your rights and opportunity for recovery. This includes if a family member passed away due to ovarian cancer linked to extended use of this product.
The attorneys handling the litigation regarding Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder are still accepting new cases and evaluating the damages suffered by women across the country. Brown points out that although the statute of limitations in which a person can file for one of these cases varies from state to state, his firm in New Jersey is taking clients from all over to ensure that they help as many people as possible. A statute of limitations is a time limit after which an injured person loses their right to seek legal compensation.
Some states will apply the statute of limitations from a woman’s diagnosis, while other states will apply the statute of limitations beginning when the product is pulled from the market. This could affect someone’s eligibility to seek compensation, so it’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. In case of the death of a loved one caused by this product, the statute of limitations might start from the date of passing.
This issue is a mass tort, so it’s important to seek help from an experienced product defect attorney, especially one who has experience with mass torts. It’s also important to look for an attorney that works on a contingency fee basis, like Brown and his firm. Attorneys that work on contingency will not charge their clients any legal fees unless they are able to win the case. With this in mind, if you or a loved one have suffered or died due to ovarian cancer linked to Johnson & Johnson talcum powder, contact a product defect attorney to discuss your situation.
