I have used baby powder for years in my hygiene practices at home. Have I been exposed to asbestos? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

There has been a string of defective product and wrongful death lawsuits in 2018 and 2019 in which top talc powder manufacturer Johnson and Johnson has lost several cases and lost more than $4 billion. Most of the victims in the cases got ovarian cancer from long term exposure to the powder. Juries have decided that the company knew asbestos was in some of its products and did not do enough to stop it. It is possible you could have been exposed to asbestos. If you develop cancer and used baby powder regularly, talk to a Virginia or North Carolina personal injury attorney.
