Breaking Barriers: The Fight for Justice, & Against J&J, Continues

After two years of unnecessary delays, and two failed bankruptcy attempts- women harmed by talcum powder are once again able to have jurors of their peers consider the damage, trauma, and pain they have suffered.

The battle against Johnson &Johnson (J&J) Continues.

The multidistrict litigation (MDL) is working towards initial trials, which are anticipated to begin later this year. Additionally, Beasley Allen lawyers are working to get a number of cases pending in various state courts across the country back on their respective trial calendars.

What is Talcum Powder?

Talc is a mineral made up of various elements including magnesium, silicon and oxygen. It is mined from the earth and then ground into a fine powder to be used as the principal ingredient in Baby Powder.

Why Is Talc Dangerous?

  • Talc is mined from rock and soil, often in the same proximity and manner as asbestos and fibrous talc.
  • Both fibrous talc and asbestos are known carcinogens and found in most bottles of Baby Powder.
  • Exposure to fibrous talc or asbestos can lead to serious health issues, including ovarian cancer.
  • In recent years, asbestos has been banned in more than 60 countries.

For more than a century, J&J marketed its Johnson’s Baby Powder, Shower to Shower body powder, and other talcum powder products as safe, even for infants. They did not tell women they were aware of studies from as early as the 1960s that were drawing a concerning link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer.

Now, they are trying to bully their way out of this battle by attacking the very people fighting to hold them accountable.

We are asking other law firms representing J&J victims to stand with us in this battle. J&J may want to persuade lawyers that the litigation is all but over, but we know better. And we know that together, we can make a difference.
