Jury Awards Woman $70 Million In Talc Case

Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC || 2-Nov-2016

The latest plaintiff in the claims against Johnson and Johnson is the third person to be awarded damages by a St. Louis jury. The California woman says her use of Johnson and Johnson’s products resulted in her development of ovarian cancer. She is speaking out about her stage four cancer, the company who caused it, and the trial. A St. Louis jury awarded the 63-year-old Modesto woman more than $70 million, but she says there is not enough compensation to pay for battling cancer.

She says she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012 and it was devastating for her and her family. The woman claims she used Johnson and Johnson’s talcum powder products for 45 years. After she had been diagnosed, she saw an ad that linked ovarian cancer to talcum powder. The realization that the cancer was preventable was sickening.

Her legal battle is over, but her cancer fight is far from finished. She hopes her verdict will prevent other companies from the making the same unethical practices and teach Johnson and Johnson a lesson. Warning labels and information for other woman using talc products would have prevented her cancer, and she hopes her battle will help someone else. According to a spokesperson with Johnson & Johnson, the company will appeal the verdict. There are still hundreds of pending cases against the company.

If you are one on the thousands of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer and you have used Johnson and Johnson’s talc products, it is imperative that you contact Meyerkord and Meyerkord, LLC, and speak to a dedicated product liability lawyer today.
