State bar associations typically have websites that allow you to look up lawyers and learn information like whether they've been subject to any discipline. Feminine hygiene care products, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower powder, as well as WalMart’s Equate powder, contain talcum powder. Over the past two decades, studies have indicated that particles of talcum in these products may travel through a woman’s vagina and up into her fallopian tubes, which increases the risk of developing ovarian cancer.

What is the average payout for the talcum powder lawsuit?
J26J transferred all of its talcum powder liabilities into a newly formed spin-off entity (LTL Management) and then that entity promptly filed bankruptcy imposing a stay on talcum litigation. In fact, talcum powder manufacturer Johnson & Johnson have often resisted settling their cases and most often force the victims and their attorneys to seek justice through a trial in the court system. If you or a loved one developed cancer or another illness due to using talcum powder products made by Johnson & Johnson or another producer, you might qualify to demand compensation from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, there isn’t an average settlement amount for talcum powder lawsuits involving ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.
