Fourth Talcum Powder Trial Yields Largest Plaintiff’s Verdict

Johnson & Johnson is facing a record-setting jury verdict – $110 million – in favor of a fourth plaintiff over the company’s failure to warn consumers about the link between its talcum-containing products and ovarian cancer. Beasley Allen lawyer Ted Meadows explains to WSFA Montgomery, Alabama, that J&J’s own expert warned the company in 1997 that the company would start to look like the tobacco industry if it continued to deny the scientific link between talcum powder use and ovarian cancer – “denying the obvious in the face of all evidence to the contrary.” Read more about the talcum powder ovarian cancer victims and their verdicts here.

I really appreciate the law firm, they look into every detail, they review everything with you not just once but several times to make sure everything is correct. They are a very good law firm and I would highly recommend them. They'll always call you back when you call with questions. They're number one in my book.
