On a daily or weekly basis it seems like more and more victims are stepping forward to file a fallopian tube or ovarian cancer claim against Johnson & Johnson. These claims have to do with women who developed ovarian and fallopian tube cancer after using Johnson & Johnson talcum powder and baby powder products.
In early February, a group of 14 people from 12 states filed an ovarian cancer claim against Johnson & Johnson in Kansas City, Missouri. The plaintiffs in the suit allege that for decades Johnson & Johnson has marketed its Shower-to-Shower and Baby Powder products as safe to use when the company knew that the product was harmful.
Determining If You Have a Fallopian Tube or Ovarian Cancer Claim
There are certain criteria that ovarian and fallopian tube cancer victims must meet to pursue a baby powder or talcum powder injury claim, including:
- The victim’s talcum powder use must have occurred after 1982
- The victim must have used Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower-to-Shower for hygiene reasons for four years or more
- The cancer diagnosis must be for fallopian tube or ovarian cancer, not cervical or uterine cancer
- The cancer must have been diagnosed by the time the victim turns 65
- If the victim passes away and her family pursues a claim, ovarian cancer must be listed on the death certificate as the cause of death
- Living victims who file an injury claim must provide ovarian tissue or pathology slides (both should be available if the diagnosis was made within the past 10 years)
