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.
Steve Boyd represents a number of ovarian cancer victims and is accepting new baby powder cancer cases. If you used talcum powder for feminine hygiene and were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, call Steve at 716-400-0000 to discuss your potential claim.
Many manufacturing businesses in Buffalo used the dangerous product asbestos. Asbestos was used in the construction of some older homes. Unfortunately, when minute particles of asbestos become airborne and are inhaled, exposure can lead to a variety of very serious and often fatal illnesses.
Among the most serious of these diseases is mesothelioma — an often-fatal cancer afflicting the lining surrounding the lungs and other organs. Less serious, but still a very dangerous condition, 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 are experienced in uncovering the link between our client’s current illness and asbestos exposure.
