Johnson & Johnson Faces Three More Talcum Powder Asbestos Cancer Trials

Pharmaceutical and cosmetics giant Johnson & Johnson is facing three more asbestos cancer lawsuit trials across the country over allegations that the company’s talcum-based products caused various types of cancers developed by the plaintiffs. Johnson & Johnson and its talc supplier, Imerys Talc USA, have recently lost a series of trials in which juries handed down substantial verdicts in favor of plaintiffs to compensate the victims for their mesothelioma cancer diagnoses.

In California, attorneys for both sides will soon give their closing arguments in an asbestos talcum powder cancer trial in a Los Angeles Superior Court room. In that case, the plaintiffs represent the estate of the cancer victim who allegedly passed away from a mesothelioma diagnosis brought on by years of using talcum powder products produced by Johnson & Johnson and sourced with materials from Imerys.

In South Carolina, Johnson & Johnson will soon give its opening statements in a talcum powder asbestos cancer lawsuit and will do the same a week later in a Middlesex County Superior Court in New Jersey. Those two upcoming trials also allege that Johnson & Johnson and talc supplier Imerys Talc USA knowingly produced and sold talcum powder products contaminated with asbestos fibers.

While talc itself does not contain asbestos, the two minerals are naturally forming and often found in deposits side by side one another, which creates the real possibility of asbestos contamination if special precautions are not taken. Once used in a variety of industrial and commercial applications for its heat resistant properties, asbestos has been heavily regulated by the federal government since the 1970s because of the health consequences associated with exposure.

Asbestos exposure is directly linked to mesothelioma, a rare and deadly form of cancer that usually affects thin linings of tissue surrounding vital organs like the heart, lungs, and abdominal cavity. Despite worldwide research efforts to fight the disease, there is no definitive cure for the disease, and the cancer’s long latency period means patients are often left with diminished treatment options by the time doctors make a diagnosis.

Even though nothing can undo a mesothelioma cancer diagnosis, victims can file asbestos cancer lawsuits to recover vital compensation to pay for medical treatment and hold companies like Johnson & Johnson responsible for knowingly producing a carcinogenic product. After a recent trial in Missouri, a state court jury awarded 22 plaintiffs and their family members a combined total of $4.69 billion in compensatory damages and punitive damages in their claim against Johnson & Johnson. The trial judge in that particular case also upheld the jury’s award, finding no reason why the verdict should not stand.

Colgate-Palmolive Settles Talcum Powder Asbestos Cancer Lawsuit

Personal care products company Colgate-Palmolive recently reached a settlement with a California man in a talcum powder asbestos cancer lawsuit on the verge of trial in state Superior Court. The terms of the settlement were not released in the case of the now 67-year-old man who claimed he developed his disease as a result of years of using talc-based products developed and sold by the defendant, which formerly did business as the Mennen Co. The two-sides resolved the case during a lunch break after spending several days selecting a jury for trial.

According to the mesothelioma cancer lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the plaintiff developed his mesothelioma cancer after decades of using asbestos-contaminated talcum powder products marketed by Colgate-Palmolive and Menen Co. The plaintiff claimed the defendant knew fully well about the asbestos contained in its Mennen Baby Powder but did nothing to warn consumers about the risks associated with exposure to the deadly carcinogen.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer directly linked to asbestos exposure. The disease can take several decades to show symptoms, known as the latency period, and commonly affects the thin linings of tissue surrounding vital organs like the lungs, abdomen, and heart. Due to the long latency period, mesothelioma patients often have diminished treatment options which can complicate the prognosis of their condition. While research continues on searching for a cure for the disease, none exists at this time.

Colgate-Palmolive, which acquired Mennin Co. in 1992, argued in court papers that their talc-based products never contained asbestos and that there is no reliable scientific evidence linking such exposure to mesothelioma. While talcum powder companies often make such defense claims, lawsuits across the country have revealed these corporations knew full well that their products were contaminated with asbestos.

Talc and asbestos are both naturally occurring minerals often found in deposits adjacent to one another, which can lead to talc contamination if care is not taken to separate the two substances from one another. Although federal law has required talc to be asbestos-free for many decades now, plaintiffs in talcum powder asbestos lawsuits allege that independent testing shows the talc sourced for Johnson & Johnson products still contains asbestos to this day.

Across the country, thousands of individuals have filed talcum powder cancer lawsuits against pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies like Colgate-Palmolive and Johnson & Johnson, as well as talc suppliers like Imerys Talc. These lawsuits allege plaintiffs developed serious forms of cancer like mesothelioma and ovarian cancer as a result of the defendant’s knowingly producing a carcinogenic product. Recently, a New Jersey state jury handed down a $117 million verdict in favor of a plaintiff who claimed talcum powder caused his mesothelioma diagnosis.

California Appeals Court Issues Reversal to Allow Family to Pursue Damages in Mesothelioma Lawsuit

A California appeals court recently issued a ruling in an asbestos cancer lawsuit allowing the plaintiffs to have their case reheard and pursue additional damages which were improperly excluded from consideration by the trial court. The case is being brought by the seven surviving children of the deceased who passed away after a battle with mesothelioma which the plaintiffs claim was a direct result of exposure to asbestos-laden products sold by Pep Boys auto parts stores.

According to the mesothelioma cancer lawsuit, filed in Francisco City and County Superior Court, the plaintiff was a “do it yourselfer” who frequently performed his own work on his vehicle, including changing brake pads made with asbestos and sold by Pep Boys from the 1960s through the mid-1980s. Throughout the course of repairing and replacing his brakes, which included brushing brake dust from auto wheel drums, grinding or sanding brake shoes, handling core brake parts, and sweeping up brake dust, the victim inhaled friable asbestos dust.

As a result of decades of exposure to and inhaling asbestos fibers, the plaintiff developed mesothelioma and received a diagnosis for such in April 2010 and ultimately succumbed to the illness just three months later at the age of 75. In January 2011, the deceased’s adult children filed a mesothelioma lawsuit on his behalf against Pep Boys, claiming the company knowingly sold a dangerous product and was therefore responsible for the cancer diagnosis.

Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly form of lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. The mineral was once used in a variety of industrial and commercial applications but has been heavily regulated by the government since the 1970s. Still, thousands of people receive mesothelioma cancer diagnoses every year due to the disease’s long latency period.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs asked to be compensated for the loss of services the deceased would have otherwise provided when caring for the children’s’ sick mother. At trial, the judge hearing the case excluded taking those loss of services into consideration for award, which constituted the base of the appeal by the plaintiffs.

In their decision, the appellate court ruled that the trial judge erred in refusing to consider awarding compensation for the loss of home health care services to the deceased’s wife, determining those were economic damages. As a result of the appeals court ruling, the plaintiffs may now go back to the trial court to have their damages reconsidered to include the value of the loss of household services the deceased would have provided.

Former Aircraft Mechanic Files Asbestos Cancer Lawsuit

A former Illinois aircraft mechanic recently filed an asbestos cancer lawsuit against several defendants the plaintiff claims are responsible for the lung cancer diagnosis he received in 2017 after decades of exposure to the deadly carcinogen. The mesothelioma cancer lawsuit names CBS Corporation, General Electric, John Crane Inc., Honeywell International, Union Carbide Corporation, and Metropolitan Life Insurance Company as defendants.

According to the asbestos cancer lawsuit, filed in St. Clair County Circuit Court, the plaintiff was exposed to asbestos while he worked as an aircraft mechanic from 1963 to 2011. The lawsuit claims the defendants either manufactured or installed asbestos products to which the plaintiff was exposed during his career. The plaintiff further alleges that the defendants knew full well that their asbestos-laden products were harmful to workers but chose not to warn him or others of the dangers.

Asbestos was once used in a variety of industrial applications for its heat-resistant and malleable properties, which made it ideal for numerous uses. Unfortunately, the once-popular insulation material is directly linked to developing deadly cancers, including mesothelioma. Despite knowing for decades about the risks associated with exposure to asbestos, companies continued to manufacture and install these products to the detriment of innocent people simply trying to earn a living and support themselves and their families.

Common occupations associated with asbestos exposure include steel, automotive, and other industrial jobs, drywall workers, pipefitters, gasket makers, and workers at power plants and shipyards. Asbestos exposure is particularly associated with occupations where workers cut, install, or manufacture insulation made with the substance and account for many of the mesothelioma lawsuits filed in the courts.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that commonly affects the thin linings of tissues surrounding vital organs like the heart, lungs, and abdomen. The disease occurs when victims inhale asbestos fibers from contaminated substances. There is no definitive cure for mesothelioma and due to a latency period that can be anywhere from 20 to 50 years, patients are often left with diminished treatment options by the time their physicians diagnose their illness.

Although nothing can undo the harm caused by a mesothelioma cancer diagnosis, patients can recover much-needed compensation to pay for vital medical treatment and make up for lost wages by filing asbestos cancer lawsuits. Filing a claim can recover past and future medical bills, lost wages, compensation for pain and suffering, and the emotional distress of living with the disease. Furthermore, filing a mesothelioma cancer lawsuit helps to hold asbestos companies responsible for their negligence and send a message that our communities will not tolerate indifference to public safety.

California Jury Hands Down $11.4 Million Award in Take Home Asbestos Lawsuit

A California jury recently handed down a substantial verdict in an asbestos cancer case involving a plaintiff who developed mesothelioma as a result of secondhand exposure to asbestos fibers brought home on his father’s work clothes. The jury’s $11.4 million award included $5 million to the plaintiff and his wife for what the panel deemed to be malice on the part of the defendant, Liberty Utilities, now known as Park Water.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that commonly affects thin lining of tissue surrounding vital organs like the lungs, heart, and abdomen. The disease is directly linked to exposure to asbestos, a naturally occuring mineral once commonly used in a variety of industrial, commercial, and military applications due to its malleability and heat-resistant properties. Mesothelioma usually takes 20 to 50 years to develop, which can leave patients with limited treatment options by the time a diagnosis is made.

According to the asbestos cancer lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the plaintiff developed his cancer as a result of being exposed to asbestos fibers his father unknowingly brought home from his job at Liberty Utilities (Park Water). The plaintiff’s father worked at Liberty Utilities (Park Water) from 1970 to 1985, where he cut, installed, and repaired asbestos-cement water pipes but was unaware of asbestos exposure and its dangers.

The plaintiffs alleged that the victim’s mesothelioma diagnosis could have been prevented had Liberty Utilities (Park Water) taken basic safety precautions, such as providing separate lockers for work and street clothing and warning employees about the risks of doing their jobs. However, the defendants did not give the plaintiff’s father any such warnings in the 15 years he worked for the utility company, according to the lawsuit.

The jury’s award included $856,500 in lost wages and $2,550,000 for loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, and pain and suffering to the plaintiff for his injuries. The jury also awarded the plaintiff’s wife $3,000,000 for loss of consortium which includes the deprivation of the benefits of a family relationship due to injuries caused by the defendant’s negligence.

Of great significance was the jury’s $5,000,000 punitive damages award for the malice it determined that the defendant acted with for its failure to warn employees about the risks of asbestos exposure. While not a common occurrence in civil cases, punitive damages are handed down by juries as a means to punish defendants for especially egregious conduct and serve as a deterrent for others to act in a similarly negligent manner.

Daughter of Wisconsin Asbestos Victim Files Lung Cancer Lawsuit

The daughter of an asbestos cancer victim who passed away from his disease recently filed asbestos lung cancer Illinois state court against her father’s employer and several other defendants alleging the companies failed to exercise due care. The asbestos lung cancer lawsuit names Buffalo Air Handing Inc., Cooper Industries LLC, URS Corp. and others as defendants and seeks compensation for the victim’s wrongful death.

According to the asbestos cancer lawsuit, filed in St. Clair County Circuit Court, the victim developed his lung cancer from decades of working with asbestos contaminated products produced and/or distributed by the defendants. The plaintiff’s lawsuit alleges that the defendants knew of the risks associated with products containing asbestos but made a conscious decision not to inform the plaintiff and others of the risks associated.

The victim received his lung cancer diagnosis in December 2017 and passed away soon after in February 2018, at which point the victim’s daughter continued the suit on his behalf to recover compensatory and punitive damages on behalf of his estate. Sadly, many other asbestos cancer victims suffer the same fate as the one in this case where they are given little time left to live and pursue justice against those who caused their irreversible condition.

Asbestos is commonly found as a flaky white mineral and was once used in wide variety of industrial and commercial applications due to its heat-resistant properties. Although the federal government did not start to regulate the sale and use of asbestos until the 1970s, companies knew for decades about the risks of asbestos exposure but did nothing to warn workers and consumers about the dangers.

Even though nothing can undo the effects of an asbestos related lung cancer diagnosis, the law gives victims and their surviving family members the legal right to file mesothelioma cancer lawsuits and hold wrongdoers responsible for their careless actions. Filing claims can recover compensation for damages such as medical treatment, hospital bills, lost wages, and the pain and suffering of living with the disease. Furthermore, many companies also have set aside money in asbestos trusts for claimants to draw from in cases the companies go bankrupt.

Family of Texas Petroleum Worker Files Mesothelioma Cancer Lawsuit Against Phillips 66

The family of a deceased Texas petroleum worker recently filed a mesothelioma cancer lawsuit against the victim’s employer, Phillips 66, over allegations that the company knew about dangerous working conditions, including asbestos exposure, but did nothing to warn employees. The plaintiffs’ lawsuit asks the court to award exemplary damages (sometimes referred to as punitive damages) for what they deem to be especially egregious behavior on the part of the defendant.

According to the asbestos cancer lawsuit, filed in Jefferson County District Court, the deceased worked from 1955 to 1979 for Phillips Petroleum at the company’s Bogner facility as an insulator, during which time he was exposed to asbestos. As a result of the exposure to asbestos, the victim developed mesothelioma, a rare and deadly form of cancer that commonly affects the body’s vital organs like the heart, lungs, and abdomen. In January 2017, the victim passed away due to his condition, which the lawsuit alleges was a painful experience.

The plaintiffs claim that Phillips Petroleum was well aware of the dangers employees faced while working with asbestos and other carcinogens but did not put in place reasonable safety measures to prevent foreseeable health consequences or warning employees about the risks. This indifference to worker safety was tantamount to an act of malice, and Phillips Petroleum should therefore be subject to severe punishment, according to the plaintiffs.

Industrial Jobs and Risk of Asbestos

 Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral once used in a variety of industrial, commercial, and military applications for its heat-resistant properties and ability to be formed into almost any shape to meet the appropriate application. Unfortunately, the widespread use of asbestos in insulation, pipe fitting, and gasket making exposed tens of thousands of innocent men and women to the very real dangers of developing mesothelioma.

Although use of asbestos has been heavily regulated by the federal government since the mid-1970s, companies had known for decades about the serious health risks associated with asbestos exposure but did nothing to warn employees or consumers. Now, decades later, thousands of people receive a mesothelioma diagnosis each year, which is directly linked to the exposure they endured in years past.

While nothing can undo the harm of a mesothelioma cancer diagnosis, filing a lawsuit can help recover much needed compensation for vital medical care and lost wages incurred while battling the disease. Furthermore, an asbestos cancer lawsuit can hold wrongdoers accountable for creating their harmful products and knowingly exposing the public to a known carcinogen just for the sake of turning a profit and increasing a company’s bottom line.

Asbestos Talcum Powder Lawsuit Goes to Trial in South Carolina

The trial in an asbestos cancer lawsuit recently began in South Carolina, pitting the survivors of a mesothelioma patient against Johnson & Johnson, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, and the outlet of Rite Aid. The trial begins on the heels of a substantial multi-million dollar verdict handed down by a New Jersey jury last month in a case brought by another mesothelioma victim who claimed that use of Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder products resulted in a mesothelioma diagnosis.

According to the talcum powder asbestos cancer lawsuit, filed in Darlington County Court of Common Pleas, the 30-year-old victim passed away from a very rare form of cancer after using Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products for decades sold by Rite Aid. In addition to filing suit against Johnson & Johnson for marketing the product and Rite Aid for distributing it, the plaintiffs filed suit against Imerys Talc, which supplied the key ingredients used.

The plaintiff’s surviving family members, who filed the claim on her behalf, claim the victim used Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products nearly every day of her life and that these products were contaminated with asbestos. Asbestos and talc are naturally occuring minerals often found in deposits side by side with each other, and the former is directly associated with developing mesothelioma and other deadly diseases.

Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly form of cancer that commonly affects the thin linings of tissues surrounding vital organs like the lungs, heart, and abdomen. Mesothelioma usually takes 20 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos to develop, and by the time doctors diagnose the illness, victims are often left with diminished treatment options to improve their health.

In April 2018, a Middlesex, New Jersey Superior Court jury handed down a $37 million judgement for medical bills and pain and suffering against Johnson & Johnson and Imerys Talc. The same jury also determined the defendants acted with extreme recklessness and awarded an additional $80 million in punitive damages to compensate the plaintiffs and punish the defendants for their negligent behavior. Johnson & Johnson faces dozens of similar lawsuits brought by other victims across the country and continues to deny liability in those claims instead of compensating victims appropriately.

While no amount of money can undo a mesothelioma diagnosis, the law allows victims and their surviving family members to file mesothelioma cancer lawsuits against asbestos companies to recover vital compensation to pay for medical treatment. Furthermore, some asbestos companies were required to set up asbestos bankruptcy trusts with which victims may file administrative claims to recover compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.

California Jurors Find Johnson & Johnson Acted with Malice in Asbestos Talcum Powder Lawsuit

A California jury recently awarded a plaintiff $4 million in punitive damages after determining that pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson acted with malice when it produced and sold talcum powder products contaminated with deadly asbestos fibers. The punitive damages award comes just days after the same jury handed down a substantial $21.7 million in compensatory damages in a case which is Johnson & Johnson’s second trial loss in as many months.

The 68-year-old plaintiff in the case claimed she developed mesothelioma cancer as a result of decades of using talc-based products sold by Johnson & Johnson. While Johnson & Johnson has denied any liability in the case, the company faces thousands of other lawsuits across the country brought by victims claiming they developed mesothelioma, ovarian cancer, and other cancers after using talcum powder products.

Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly form of cancer that commonly affects the thin linings of tissue surrounding vital organs like the lungs, abdomen, and heart. Due to the latency period of the disease, many asbestos cancer victims do not show symptoms for 20 to 50 years, which leaves them with diminished treatment options. Even though medical science continues to make progress every day with treatments, there is still no definitive cure for a mesothelioma diagnosis.

In addition to filing her asbestos cancer lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson, the victim and her husband named Imerys SA, Cyprus Amax Minerals, a unit of Brenntag, Honeywell International and other talc suppliers as defendants, but held that Johnson & Johnson was responsible for two-thirds of the plaintiff’s harm. In April 2018, a Middlesex County, New Jersey Superior Court jury ordered Imerys Talc America and Johnson & Johnson to pay the plaintiffs in a mesothelioma talcum powder cancer lawsuit $37 million, holding Johnson and Johnson 70% responsible and Imerys 30% responsible.

Although talc does not contain asbestos itself, the two minerals are often found in natural deposits side by side, which can cause contamination. Despite Congress passing laws decades ago holding that talc products must be asbestos-free, juries across the country have held that many companies like Johnson & Johnson continue to produce asbestos-contaminated cosmetics products that put the public at risk.

While no amount of money can undo a mesothelioma diagnosis, filing a lawsuit against asbestos companies can hold wrongdoers accountable for their indifference to public safe as well as recover much needed compensation for lost wages and medical bills. Even in cases in which the victim has passed away due to his or her illness, survivors may be able to continue the lawsuit on their behalf and continue the fight in a court of law.

Los Angeles Jury Awards Mesothelioma Victim $21.7 Million in Asbestos Cancer Lawsuit

A Los Angeles jury recently handed down a substantial verdict in favor of a mesothelioma victim who filed an asbestos cancer lawsuit against pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson, Cyprus Amax Minerals, Honeywell International, a unit of Brenntag and other local talc suppliers. In their verdict, the jury awarded the plaintiff $21.7 million in compensatory damages and will soon decide whether or not to punish the defendants further by awarded punitive damages.

The victim and her husband originally filed their mesothelioma cancer lawsuit against the defendants in 2017, alleging Johnson & Johnson knowingly sold talc products sourced from asbestos contaminated mines. As a result of using talcum powder over the course of many years, the victim developed mesothelioma, according to the lawsuit.

Jurors found Johnson & Johnson 67% responsible for the plaintiff’s injuries and will have to pay a share of the award proportional to this determination. The remainder of the award will be split among the remaining defendants in the case.

The verdict marks the second one handed down against the company in as many months, and it currently faces another ongoing trial in Darlington County, South Carolina over similar allegations thats talc-based products caused the plaintiff’s mesothelioma diagnosis. In April 2018, a New Jersey jury handed down a massive $117 million to a man who claimed years of using Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder caused his mesothelioma diagnosis.

Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly form of cancer linked directly with exposure to asbestos. The disease commonly affects the thin linings of tissue surrounding vital organ like the heart, lungs and abdomen. Mesothelioma has a latency period of 20 to 50 years, and by the time patients begin to show symptoms, they are often left with diminished medical treatment options to fight the disease.

While talc does not contain asbestos itself, the two naturally occurring minerals are often discovered in deposits very close to one another, increasing the risk of contaminated talc used in a variety of consumer products. Although the federal government mandated talc be asbestos free and placed many other regulations on the use of asbestos in other products since the 1970s, many companies were already aware of the dangers but continued to place their dangerous products into the stream of commerce.

As a result of the greed of asbestos companies, tens of thousands of innocent people developed a mesothelioma cancer diagnosis and suffered serious damages. By filing an asbestos cancer lawsuit, victims and their families can recover vital compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and the pain and suffering of living with a disease that still has no cure today.
