If you or someone you know has used talcum powder around the perineum, or genital area, and has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may have a talcum powder claim. Please contact us today to find out how you can best be represented.
Were you put at risk?
Although it is often used by women as part of their daily hygiene regimen, the use of talcum powder on the genitals and perineal area, either through direct application or by applying it to sanitary napkins, has been associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer
The law is on your side.
Studies have found that talcum powder may travel into the genital tract, causing inflammation. Frequent, long-term use of talc powder in these areas allegedly doubles or triples the risk of developing ovarian cancer.
If you or someone you love developed cancer after using a talcum powder product, you may have the right to seek well-deserved compensation. Since 1999, the American Cancer Society has maintained that talc—and products containing talc—could lead to serious illness.
Today, studies show that women who have used talc powder are one-third more likely to develop certain forms of cancer, including ovarian cancer and fallopian tube cancer. We understand the plights that our clients have gone through, and because of this, we seek to represent our clients to the fullest.
Studies show that talcum powder is linked to fatal ovarian cancer, which thousands of women suffer from annually. The devastating link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder was first discovered in the early 1970s. It’s time that those who have profited most face justice accordingly.
How to Know If You Have a Talcum Powder Claim
If you or someone you know has used talcum powder around the perineum, or genital area, and has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may have a talcum powder claim. You need to consult with an experienced attorney who can investigate your claim, review your medical records, and make a determination as to whether you have sufficient evidence to pursue a lawsuit.
When to Contact a Talcum Powder Attorney
If you believe that you may have a legitimate claim, you may want to consider contacting an attorney as soon as possible. A statute of limitations (SOL) may limit the time you have to file a claim. If you do not file your claim within the statue of limitations, then you may lose it forever. If you need to speak to someone about this, simply call 1-888-568-4115.
