TheProductLawyers.com reports on a group of plaintiffs who are seeking MDL status for a group of talcum powder lawsuits.
According to Legal Reader, Plaintiffs want MDL status for Johnson & Johnson talc-ovarian cancer suits. MDL status would make pre-trial items, such as discovery, much easier and convenient, according to the source. The MDL would be overseen by U.S. District Judge David Herndon in the Southern District of Illinois.
Over the last 45 years numerous studies have found that women who use baby powder as a feminine hygiene product are more likely to develop the disease. Other studies, however, have found the alleged connection between talc and ovarian cancer less clear.
Thousands of women in the U.S. have made claims alleging that Johnson & Johnson hid valuable medical information that prevented consumers from knowing the dangers of using the powders. Those plaintiffs have also claimed that the use of Johnson & Johnson’s powders as a feminine hygiene product is directly linked to ovarian cancer and that the company should be held accountable for allegations of fraud and conspiracy. Johnson & Johnson has denied claims that their products cause cancer and has stated that no causal link exists.
As these lawsuits are expected to grow in numbers, Banville Law is seeking to help those currently suffering. The firm has many years of experience fighting large pharmaceutical companies who have put dangerous drugs and devices onto the market, foregoing public safety for corporate greed. Attorneys at Banville Law want to assist those who believe they have been directly affected by the use of Johnson’s talcum powder.
