A woman in Missouri won $55 million in the second ovarian cancer trial against baby powder manufacturer Johnson & Johnson. Baby powder is made from talcum powder, and is linked to ovarian cancer when used genitally. Our talcum powder attorneys are representing women diagnosed with ovarian cancer nationwide.
This is the second talc cancer lawsuit to go to trial this year, and the second multi-million dollar win for plaintiffs. The first suit ended in $72 million to the plaintiff, who tragically passed away from ovarian cancer before trial. Her family was awarded the jury verdict, though her son couldn’t stifle his tears when the award was announced. The woman, Jackie Fox, was only 62 years old.
