Kentucky Talcum Powder Lawsuit Attorney

Recent cases have found that some talc products are allegedly contaminated with asbestos. Prolonged exposure to this substance can cause mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that has no cure. Contaminated talc products have also been blamed for other types of cancers including ovarian cancer and lung cancer. If you or a loved one has suffered from mesothelioma or other cancers caused by asbestos in talc products, contact a Kentucky talcum powder lawsuit attorney at Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., to discuss your claim. When companies produce dangerous and defective products or hold their products out as safe for a particular purpose when they actually are not, they should be held accountable to injured consumers who relied on the safety of those products.

How is Talc Contaminated?

Depending on where talc is mined, asbestos and talc can be found close together and cross-contamination can occur. Asbestos has been reportedly found in talc products such as powdered makeup and baby powder and recent reports of asbestos in children’s makeup products have put consumers on high alert. Consumers are not the only people who suffer injuries from contaminated talc, however; talc miners and employees of talc product manufacturers are also at risk for asbestos exposure.

Compensation for Injuries Caused by Asbestos

Manufacturers, sellers, and employers are common defendants in contaminated talc cases and when they are responsible for asbestos exposure causing mesothelioma, injury victims and their families are entitled to compensation. Depending on your case, compensation may include lost wages, loss of earning capacity, medical bills, future medical bills, pain and suffering, and sometimes punitive damages when the defendant’s conduct was egregious. Close family members of someone who has suffered fatal injuries due to contaminated asbestos exposure may be entitled to recovery for their losses resulting from the death of their loved one.
