Can I Seek Compensation By Suing Johnson and Johnson For My Asbestos Cancer?
Johnson and Johnson deliberately hid from the public the fact that their baby powder contained carcinogenic asbestos. The baby powder sold by Johnson and Johnson did not always contain high amounts of asbestos, but the risk was there. Johnson and Johnson kept this information from regulators and it’s going to end up costing them in hundreds of new lawsuits on top of the thousands more already going through the court system.
Any contact with the baby powder substance can end up being potentially dangerous and the exposure can begin the effects of Mesothelioma in your lungs. Sprinkling the substance on yourself and in the past is what could make you another victim of Mesothelioma cancer. Hundreds of users of the product, mainly women, have found out they have ovarian cancer caused by the talc in Johnson and Johnson’s signature baby powder. Any mined talc could be contained with the carcinogen. The talc in Johnson and Johnson’s baby powder product was proven to be poisonous and to cause cancer as early as 1971.
Johnson and Johnson alleged that their baby powder was asbestos free. But after the FDA found out 3 different lab tests from 1972 to 1975 discovered high levels of asbestos in its talc it was too late for the company to cover up the findings any longer.
Here’s what we know:
11,700 plaintiffs claim Johnson and Johnson’s talc caused their cancers
Thousands of women with ovarian cancer have been affected and are suing the company
Internally the company was in disarray once talc was found to be in the company’s product
The company’s talc tested positive for small amounts of asbestos between 1972 and 2000
Company executives, mine managers, scientists doctors and lawyers all knew of the asbestos in the popular baby powder product sold by the company and attempted to cover this information up from the public!
Johnson and Johnson was able to influence regulators plans to limit asbestos in cosmetic talc products for their gain!
