Campbell & Associates is evaluating claims on behalf of women in the United States that have developed Ovarian Cancer after using Talcum or baby powders. There have been numerous studies that have linked these powders developed by Johnson & Johnson to ovarian cancer. In 2003, a study concluded that women who used Talcum Powder were 33% more likely to develop ovarian cancer. The claims come from women at this point that state that using these powders for personal hygiene to stay dry and on their babies led to a development of ovarian cancer. Reports of Johnson & Johnson knowing about the link to ovarian cancer come as early as 1982 and continue today.
There have been two lawsuits filed so far, in both of them, the juries have determined that Johnson & Johnson were negligent in providing a warning to consumers that prolonged use of Talcum Powder could increase the risk of cancer. Both of these verdicts were extremely high due to the punitive damages (money awarded to the victims in order to penalize Johnson & Johnson for supposedly knowing about the risks without warning consumers). In the first lawsuit the jury awarded the victim $72 million. The second trial in May 2016, the jury awarded the victim $52 million.
