Over the past few years, there have been a surge in lawsuits against cancer-causing products. By taking the companies that create the volatile items to task, not only does it send a message that we will not stand for the carelessness involved in their creation, but it can often help pay for medical bills and provide a sense of relief to the families involved.
Juries around the country have found that long term use of talcum powder can cause ovarian cancer.
Medical professionals have known for years that talcum powder, or baby powder, may increase one’s risk of developing ovarian cancer. More than 1,000 women across the country have filed suit, and juries have awarded billions because manufacturers knew about the risk years ago and failed to warn against it.
We represent several people living with ovarian cancer and is accepting new baby powder cancer cases. If you used talcum powder for feminine hygiene and were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, call our firm at 716-600-0000 or 585-600-0000 to discuss your potential claim.
In some naural forms, talcum powder is made from asbestos. Before much was known about it, asbestos had a variety of uses and applications. In fact, many manufacturing businesses in Buffalo used asbestos in the construction of older homes. Unfortunately, when minute particles of asbestos become airborne and get inhaled, the resulting exposure can lead to a variety of severe and often fatal illnesses.
Among the most serious of these diseases is mesothelioma. This is cancer afflicting the lining surrounding the lungs and other organs that can result in death. Another less serious condition — but still concerning — is asbestosis, which is a hardening of the lungs. Inhalation of asbestos fibers is also linked to lung cancer.
Diseases related to asbestos inhalation are slow to develop and may not appear for years after exposure. As a result, asbestos cases often have unique issues. When pursuing a claim for asbestos exposure, we consult with experts in this field who have experience in uncovering the link between our client’s current illness and asbestos exposure.
