What is the Problem with Talcum Powder?
Johnson & Johnson is a major manufacturer of talc-based baby powder and body powder. Numerous lawsuits have been filed accusing Johnson & Johnson of failing to warn consumers of the risks of talcum powder. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease and is expected to result in thousands of deaths this year alone in the United States.
The first talcum powder/ovarian cancer lawsuit was brought—and won—against Johnson & Johnson in federal court in 2013. A lawyer representing the cosmetic giant admitted executives had known about the association between baby powder and ovarian cancer for years but did not deem the risk significant enough to require a product warning.
When to File a Claim
There are strict time deadlines, called Statutes of Limitations, which must be met in all cases. If you have a Talcum Powder case but do not file and serve your lawsuit before the time deadline you will be forever barred from bringing such a case.
Fortunately, if you used talcum powder in North Dakota or Minnesota the time deadlines are longer than in some other states. Nevertheless, there are still strict time deadlines in North Dakota and Minnesota, just like other states, and if you miss the deadline you cannot pursue your claim. therefore, if you believe that you or your loved one may have a baby powder claim because you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you should immediately contact an attorney.
