Talcum Powder Lawsuits

It is alleged that companies that manufacture and sell talcum powder have actually known for more than 40 years that there is a link between talcum powder use and developing ovarian cancer, as well as to developing mesothelioma. Talcum powder was advertised to women as a means of personal hygiene, yet when applied on the genital area or on sanitary products, it can cause ovarian cancer. When talcum powder is used, particles in the air can be inhaled into the lungs, and this can cause mesothelioma.

If you or someone you love has suffered from ovarian cancer or mesothelioma and think it may be the result of using talcum powder, a Washington, DC talcum powder lawsuit statute of limitations lawyer may be able to help.

Starting in 1971, researchers found talc particles in up to 75% of all ovarian tumors that they studied. In the last 25 years, there have been at least six clinical studies that showed a possible higher risk for cancer in people who regularly use (or used) talcum powder.

It is estimated that women who use talcum powder for personal hygiene on a regular basis have a 30% higher chance of developing cancer compared to women who do not use it.

If you or someone you love frequently used talcum powder and became ill, a Washington, DC talcum powder lawsuit statute of limitations lawyer may be able to get you and your family the compensation they deserve.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
