Large Verdicts in Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits

Johnson and Johnson (J&J) will pay close to $200 million in damages to three women who developed ovarian cancer after using talcum powder for feminine hygiene for decades. These awards included punitive damages of more than $50 million. J&J is still selling the deadly powder without a warning label. It knew about the risks as far back as the 1970’s.

There are about 2,000 ovarian cancer claims pending against J&J.

J&J Hid the Risk

At one trial internal J&J documents showed that the company knew about the risk and intentionally hid the risk. J&J promoted its talcum powder products specifically for feminine hygiene knowing it could cause cancer.

Compensatory damages are awarded to compensate victims for their economic and non-economic damages. Punitive damages are awarded to punish the bad guy.

With the huge verdicts, J&J will have to consider paying victims substantial amounts in settlements.
