Widower Files Lawsuit For Wife’s Death Related To Talcum Powder

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg Posted in Wrongful Death

A man in California is fighting back after his wife’s death. The man has filed a lawsuit claiming that his wife’s ovarian cancer was caused by the talcum powder used in some Johnson & Johnson products. He is seeking unspecified damages for his wife’s wrongful death with claims of negligence, strict product liability, breach of an implied warranty, and fraud included in the case.

File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

This lawsuit, which was filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court comes on the heels of a verdict against Johnson & Johnson in a similar case. A jury in Missouri ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay out $72 million in the case of a 62-year-old woman who died of ovarian cancer after using Shower to Shower and Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder for the purpose of feminine hygiene. Anyone who has faced the loss of a loved one that is tied to talcum powder and ovarian cancer might opt to follow this example and file a wrongful death lawsuit.

The defendants in the case recently filed in California include Johnson & Johnson, Rite Aid Corp., Imerys Talc America, and Gelson’s. The lawsuit claims that the man’s wife purchased Shower to Shower and Johnson’s Baby Powder for feminine hygiene¬†usage. She used the products for 25 years before being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She was diagnosed in 1998 and passed away in 2012.

Product Liability Lawsuit

The product liability lawsuit alleges that the manufacturer should have known of the dangers associated with using talcum powder for these purposes because of information provided by cancer organizations. There are documented instances of this information being passed to Johnson & Johnson, according to the wrongful death lawsuit. One instance occurred in 1994 and another in 2006. Despite those warnings, the manufacturer didn’t disclose the possible danger to consumers.
