St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 21, 2015
A pending talcum powder lawsuit in St. Louis is progressing toward its court date, scheduled for February 1, 2016, according to the Onder Law Firm's attorneys representing the plaintiff. Jury trials are scheduled early in a case's progress; the pretrial conference, which always takes place prior to the trial, has recently been scheduled. The pretrial conference will take place on January 21, 2016 at 1pm, according to recent court documents. The presiding judge is the Honorable Rex M. Burlison.
“Of course we hope to settle cases without the need for a jury trial,” explained a representative of the Onder Law Firm. “But that is not always possible, and so our attorneys meticulously prepare each case for trial in the eventuality that a settlement cannot be reached. Our goal is to provide the best talcum powder lawsuit representation available in St. Louis.”
This talcum powder lawsuit alleges that the plaintiffs and their loved ones suffered from the ill effects of ovarian cancer resulting from the use of talc-based body powders for perineal hygiene, according to court documents. The case cites research studies dating back to the 1970s which provide evidence supporting a connection between the regular use of talcum powder for feminine hygiene and higher rates of ovarian cancer, according to court documents.
The plaintiffs assert they were not warned of the alleged link between the use of talcum powder and higher rates of ovarian cancer, according to court documents. They say they would not have used the products in questions had they been made aware of the alleged risk, according to court documents.
This talcum powder lawsuit also alleges that the makers and distributors of talcum powder knew of connection yet intentionally deceived consumers over the course of decades, according to court documents. The allegations have been made against the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson, the talc mining company Imerys Talc America, and Walgreens retail stores, according to court documents.
