Talcum Powder Lawsuits

Talcum Powder Lawsuits in Birmingham

Experienced & 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 your 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 have years of experience litigating cases involving dangerous products and can help you win compensation for any talc-related cancers you or your loved ones may have been diagnosed with.

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
  • Bauer
  • Old Spice
  • Faberge
  • 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.

Should I Sue for Damages?

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer after prolonged exposure to talcum powder, you need to contact an attorney right away. There is a good chance your cancer is linked to contaminated talc, and you may be eligible for compensation. Our attorneys at Montgomery Ponder can help you investigate the condition and determine whether or not this is the case, and if so, we can fight on your behalf to recover the compensation you deserve. We also represent other types of product liability claims in Birmingham.
