Holland Injury Law is helping women suffering from Ovarian Cancer determine whether Talcum Powder laced with asbestos may be to blame. Juries around the country have held companies like Johnson & Johnson responsible for selling a product containing asbestos without adequate warnings. A recent St. Louis City case resulted in a $4.6 Billion dollar award to 22 women or their families against Johnson & Johnson. The jury ruled 12-0 that Johnson & Johnson talcum powder was responsible for ovarian cancer after hearing from experts on both sides over four weeks. The jury was allowed to read secret internal documents from Johnson & Johnson detailing the presence of deadly asbestos contaminating its products. Further, the jury heard testimony that Johnson & Johnson tried to suppress studies linking its products to asbestos over the last few decades. For more information, see Talcum Powder.
