Thousands of people throughout the United States have filed lawsuits claiming their use of talcum powder and cosmetics or other products containing talc caused them to develop cancer.

What Can a Talcum Powder Lawyer in NC Do for You?
Talcum powder has been marketed and sold for more than a century. Its ability to absorb moisture and reduce friction made it a staple found in homes throughout the country. Parents used it on infants to prevent diaper rash, and adults used it after baths and showers to control odor and keep the skin dry. Women, in particular, relied on talcum powder to control moisture and prevent irritation in the genital area.
According to the American Cancer Society, studies have linked the use of talcum powder and other products made from talc with an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Talc is also being studied in connection with other forms of cancer in part because some talc may contain asbestos particles, which may be inhaled into the lungs.
Recovering Compensation for Harm Caused by Talcum Powder
Manufacturers of talcum powder knew of possible asbestos contamination more than 50 years ago, but they took no steps to warn consumers even when a link to ovarian cancer was suspected. It takes an aggressive talcum powder lawyer to make manufacturers pay for the damage caused by their failure to protect consumers from the harm they knew their product caused.
