WOMAN WINS TALCUM POWDER CANCER VERDICT
An important jury trial recently occurred in South Dakota where jurors returned a verdict in favor of a woman who had filed a talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit against pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson.
She claimed that she was diagnosed with ovarian after using Johnson & Johnson’s "Shower to Shower" product for over 30 years. The jury found in its verdict that Johnson & Johnson should have warned the woman and other consumers about the risks of developing cancer through continued use of talcum powder.
Three doctors examined the woman’s cancer tissue and found talc, concluding the body powder was the cause, according to trial coverage in the Sioux Falls Argus Leader.
The newspaper reported that the physician was an expert witness who for 30 years had studied the connection of talc and ovarian cancer and concluded that talc probably was a contributing factor in 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer each year.
The jury declined to award the woman damages but legal experts say the fact that jurors found against Johnson & Johnson means that many more talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuits can be expected to be filed in state and federal courts in the near future. Johnson & Johnson has been defending itself in many other product liability litigations including Tylenol and transvaginal mesh and is currently negotiating a multi-billion dollar settlement of thousands of metal-on-metal hip implant lawsuits.
These legal experts also called for Johnson & Johnson to publicly confirm that consumers who use talcum powder face such risks and to acknowledge medical research studies which have made similar conclusions.
