There are generally five initial criteria used to determine if a woman, or her family, can file a talcum powder lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson. Those five factors are:
- Does or did the woman have an ovarian-type cancer?
- Was the use of talcum powder (baby powder) a daily habit with five years of minimum use?
- Did the woman use Johnson & Johnson baby powder (talcum powder)?
- Did the woman use talcum powder in her genital area?
- Was there a positive biopsy showing evidence of talcum powder?
If all of these questions are answered “yes,” it is likely a Johnson & Johnson lawsuit can be filed for causing ovarian cancer. However, if the woman had a genetic disorder, like the BRCA 1 gene or BRCA 2 gene, it might preclude the filing of a case because it makes it difficult to link the cancer to the talcum powder rather than the genetic disorder.
Talcum powder lawsuits seek compensation and settlements for women and their families against Johnson & Johnson. The suits allege the company failed to warn the baby powder product could cause cancer and failed to sell a safe product to the public. The settlements in these cases are expected to be substantial, based upon serious harm caused to the product users and their families.
