Finding a Baby Powder Cancer Attorney

A guide for choosing a Johnson’s baby powder attorney, women and family members of women who believe they may have grounds to file an ovarian cancer claim or talcum powder lawsuit.

As news of the latest talcum powder verdict hit mainstream news sources early in 2016, attorneys handling baby powder cancer lawsuits have experienced a surge in the number of talcum powder lawsuit inquiries they receive each day.

The truth of the matter is that many women have likely developed cancer from using baby powder without an awareness of the risk in the first place. Dr. Daniel Cramer, an epidemiologist and Harvard Medical School instructor who has conducted groundbreaking talcum powder cancer research, has testified that approximately 10,000 develop ovarian cancer from talcum powder every year. This estimate is based on research Dr. Cramer has conducted in conjunction with other ovarian cancer experts over the past decade; Cramer is considered a leading expert on the topic.

While research has been underway on the topic of cancer from Johnson’s baby powder for several decades, very few consumers were aware of the potential risk. American consumers typically rely on the FDA to provide warnings on harmful drugs and medical products. Because talcum powder is technically a cosmetic product that is indicated for topical use only, federal regulators say the substance is beyond their scope. Numerous citizens’ petitions, submitted by cancer research and patient advocacy groups, have been denied or ignored by federal regulators, and no talcum powder cancer warning statement has ever been issued on a national scale.

In the absence of a third party warning on the risk of ovarian cancer stemming from baby powder use by women, the main source of information on the safety of talcum powder is Johnson & Johnson. The international health products conglomerate has maintained for decades that baby powder is safe for daily use by women. Internal documents produced in the recent baby powder lawsuit show J&J officials have been aware of research linking talcum powder to cancer since at least the 1980s. Concerned that the cancer connection would hurt talcum powder sales, Johnson & Johnson apparently helped to fund a task force designed to protect the interests of talcum powder producers. For their actions to bury talcum powder cancer research, Johnson & Johnson was found guilty of conspiracy. American women have been exposed to advertising claiming talcum baby powders were safe for everyday use, and have never been fairly warned about the potential risk of talcum powder dusting.

For women or families who wonder if they may have grounds to file a baby powder lawsuit, here are some tips for selecting a talcum powder cancer attorney:

Local vs. National? In some cases, depending on the type of litigation, it is advantageous to choose a local law firm over a national group. In the case of baby powder lawsuits, it is best to have a leading national law firm represent you in a baby powder lawsuit. Local attorneys are best for cases that are linked to a particular place, but will not have the knowledge or resources to handle a major products liability case. Choose baby powder lawyers that have already represented clients in similar cases, particularly those who have already achieved a winning talcum powder cancer settlement.

Contingency Representation. Any baby powder cancer attorney you choose should provide contingency representation, meaning the law firm will not charge any legal fees unless they win compensation on your behalf. Talcum powder attorneys that charge a fee to review your case or to represent you should not be trusted.

Track Record. Ideally, you should select a talcum powder attorney group that has set a precedent of winning a baby powder lawsuit settlement in the past. But look further to see what other litigation the company has been involved in. Baby powder attorneys who have a long history of successfully winning cases in family safety litigation are good candidates. Baby powder attorneys who fit this description will have ample resources to put toward your case.

Trust. Contact the attorneys representing baby powder cancer claims and speak directly with a representative. Trust your gut on whether you feel the group is trustworthy and will represent your best interests. Filing a baby powder lawsuit is a significant decision and you must feel good about getting the best legal representation for your family.
