St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Talcum powder attorneys at The Onder Law Firm are pleased to announce an expansion of the Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit Center website, which now provides timely news updates to keep families informed on developments in the lawsuits mounting against Johnson & Johnson. Since 2013, the website has served as a public resource for information on talcum powder attorneys and filing suit against Johnson & Johnson for ovarian cancer claims.
To date, Johnson & Johnson has faced one major lawsuit in U.S. District Court in which a plaintiff alleged she developed ovarian cancer as a result of using talcum powder. The lawsuit was concluded in October of 2013 in favor of Ms. Deane Berg, the plaintiff. (Deane Berg v. Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc., U.S. District Court, District of South Dakota, Case No. 09-4179) According to court documents, the jury in this case found that Ms. Berg’s diagnosis of ovarian cancer was in fact linked to her daily use of products containing talcum powder, including Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.
Talc particles may enter the female reproductive through direct dusting or through the use of feminine products coated in baby powder. According to a 2011 study entitled "Perineal use of talcum powder and endometrial cancer risk"**, cancer researchers believe that once inside the body, talc can migrate to the ovaries where the particles are thought to cause an inflammatory response. The inflammation yields conditions that are conducive to the proliferation of cancer cells, accounting for the increase in risk of cancer.
The Onder Law Firm is currently accepting inquiries from women and families of women who have suffered from ovarian cancer and have used talcum powder products. Talcum powder lawyers are investigating these inquiries for possible claims against Johnson & Johnson.
The Onder Law Firm has won major settlements for clients in the areas of drug and medical device recalls, as well as product and family safety. The firm is nationally-renowned for its work on window blind strangulation, and has notable expertise in fighting on behalf of individuals against powerful corporations. Women and family members of women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have a history of baby powder use are eligible for a free evaluation with a talcum powder attorney, and may contact the firm through its Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Center website.
The Onder Law Firm also welcomes talcum powder lawsuit inquiries from other law firms, either to handle these inquiries or work as co-counsel.
