Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer Attorneys in Denver and Aurora, CO
Have you OR a loved one been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer after using Talcum Powder?
An estimated 20,000 women are diagnosed each year with ovarian cancer and more than 14,000 of these women pass away. Studies have shown that women who use talc-containing products on their genitals have a one in fifty chance of developing the disease.
In the early 1970’s, Johnson & Johnson was put on notice that that their baby powder was posing a significant risk to women. The natural mineral, Talc, contained in Johnson & Johnson baby powder increases the risk of women developing ovarian cancer due to its natural properties when used on the genital area.
In February 2016, a jury in St. Louis awarded $72 Million Dollars to the family of Jackie Fox. Ms. Fox passed away from ovarian cancer in October 2015. Ms. Fox’s family claimed that her cancer was caused by the regular use of Johnson & Johnson baby powder.
Johnson & Johnson continues to deny these claims contrary to the scientific evidence that talcum powder increases the risk of developing ovarian cancer. Johnson & Johnson is currently facing at least 1,200 other lawsuits and thousands more are expected.
If you or someone in your family has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to compensation. Boesen Law, LLC is currently accepting cases of those who may have been affected.
