We Urge Victims Of Ovarian And Fallopian Tube Cancers And Their Families To Request A Free, No-Obligation Case Evaluation
A jury determined that Johnson & Johnson (J&J) owes $18.8 million to Emory Hernandez Valadez, a Californian who claims his cancer resulted from using the company's baby powder.
Valadez, 24, stated that his exposure to J&J's talc since childhood led to mesothelioma, a lethal cancer, around his heart.
This trial, held in Oakland, California, marks J&J's first in nearly two years concerning its talc products, although Valadez's attorneys accused J&J of concealing asbestos contamination for decades.
Many individuals have filed lawsuits against J&J, alleging that their talc products, at times, contained asbestos, leading to ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. J&J, however, maintains the safety and asbestos-free nature of its talc products.
In a recent development, J&J subsidiary LTL Management filed for bankruptcy in Trenton, New Jersey, proposing a $8.9 billion settlement for over 38,000 lawsuits and aiming to prevent future claims.
This marks their second attempt to address talc-related claims via bankruptcy after a federal appeals court declined an initial effort.
Plaintiffs in the asbestos cases are pushing for dismissing LTL’s recent bankruptcy application, arguing it was strategically filed to shield the company from lawsuits.
Both J&J and LTL counter that bankruptcy offers a more just, efficient, and balanced settlement distribution to plaintiffs compared to trial courts, which they equate to a "lottery" system with inconsistent outcomes.
J&J disclosed in bankruptcy court documents that their talc-related verdicts, settlements, and legal expenses amounted to approximately $4.5 billion.
The website Cancer. org---published by the American Cancer Society---explains that several national and international agencies study environmental substances to determine if they can cause cancer. (A substance that causes cancer or helps cancer grow is called a carcinogen.)
The American Cancer Society looks to these organizations to evaluate the risks based on evidence from laboratory, animal, and human research studies.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is part of the World Health Organization (WHO)---one of its primary goals is to identify the causes of cancer.
- IARC classifies talc that contains asbestos as “carcinogenic to humans.”
- Based on the lack of human studies and limited data in lab animal studies, IARC classifies inhaled talc not containing asbestos as “not classifiable as to carcinogenicity in humans.”
- Based on limited evidence from human studies of a link to ovarian cancer, IARC classifies the perineal (genital) use of talc-based body powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”
