Talcum Powder Lawsuits In Birmingham
Experienced And Dedicated Dangerous Product Attorneys
Talc, one of the world’s softest known minerals, is an ingredient in many household products, including baby powder, cosmetics, antiperspirants, aftershave powders and others. While the beneficial properties of this mineral are undeniable, it has also been found to be often contaminated with a highly dangerous carcinogen (a substance that can cause cancer): asbestos.
Thousands of victims have contracted various forms of cancer after repeated exposure to products containing talc, including:
- Ovarian cancer
- Mesothelioma (a rare chest cancer that affects the lungs, stomach, heart and other organs)
- Lung cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Bladder cancer
The worst part? Manufacturers have known the dangers of contaminated talc in popular products since the 1970s. Our Birmingham talcum powder lawsuit attorneys at Montgomery Ponder, LLC, have years of experience litigating cases involving dangerous products and can help you win compensation for any talc-related cancers with which you or your loved ones may have been diagnosed.
Which Products Are Dangerous?
Fortunately, not all talc contains asbestos, and not all products are dangerous. Manufacturers who have products that have tested positive for asbestos include:
- Johnson & Johnson
- Old Spice
- English Leather
- Baby Magic
- Valeant Pharmaceuticals
As talcum powder is often used by women to reduce chafing and skin inflammation in their private areas, one of the most common forms of cancer linked to asbestos-contaminated talc is ovarian cancer.
