A TEXAS LAW FIRM with a NATIONAL REPUTATION for RELENTLESSLY PURSUING JUSTICE.
Talcum powder use has been linked to ovarian cancer – let a lawyer with Hilliard Martinez Gonzales help you pursue a talcum powder cancer lawsuit to recover your costs and losses.
We have years of experience taking drug and medical product manufacturers to court for selling harmful products to an unsuspecting public. Baby powder should be the least harmful product on the shelf, but now we know that it has been linked to ovarian cancer.
A number of medical studies indicate that some women who have used Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder (talcum) for use on infants and feminine hygiene have developed various forms of cancer, according to Reuters. Johnson & Johnson has thousands of claims against it for injury caused by its defective or harmful products, including Risperdal, vaginal mesh implants, hip implants, Baby Powder, and Shower to Shower Body Powder.
Our attorneys stand ready to represent women (or their survivors) who developed ovarian cancer after long-term use of Johnson & Johnson talcum powder, either the Baby Powder or Shower to Shower Body Powder. If you were harmed by this product or believe you could have been, we can determine if you have a case for compensation.
As long ago as 1971, researchers found particles of talc embedded in ovarian and cervical tumors. Scientists believe that long-term use of talcum powder on the genital area can lead to cancer when talc particles migrate into the body and cause inflammation. Inflammation has been identified as an important factor in the development of ovarian cancer.
New lawsuits are being brought against Johnson & Johnson to show that talcum powder was marketed to black women after the company knew about the risks of the product, according to National Public Radio (NPR).
According to NPR, 60% of women using the product in 2016 were black. The National Council of Negro Women has drawn a link between the company’s marketing efforts towards black women and this product usage data.

While you may wish to consider your options before getting started with a case, keep in mind that there is generally a limited amount of time to take action.
