Talc Powder Lawsuit Pre-Settlement FundingMay 26, 2016
“Kay” (not a real person) used a popular brand of talcum powder every day for 40 years. She trusted the brand to help with her feminine hygiene needs and even recommended it to friends. In her mid-50s and in reasonably good health, she got a routine checkup from her family doctor, expecting to find nothing worse than slightly high blood pressure.
Instead, Kay received a shocking diagnosis: she had ovarian cancer.
Stunned by the news, Kay searched for a possible cause of her cancer. One night, she was watching a news broadcast and a story appeared about a potential link between the usage of talc powder near the genitals and ovarian cancer. Kay couldn’t believe that such a seemingly innocent and harmless product, one that she had used all her life, could have such terrible consequences.
As Kay did more research, she found out that the studies had established a possible health risk linked to their powder over 20 years ago, and that the company that produced the talcum she used may have deliberately hidden that information from the public. Kay had a deadly disease, and it was highly possible that a company’s negligence had put her at risk of contracting it. She wanted compensation for her suffering, not just for herself, but for her husband and three children – some of whom used the same brand of talcum powder on her grandchildren.
Kay filed a civil suit against the talc powder manufacturer, but it was clear from the start that the deck was stacked against her. With its expensive legal team and seemingly endless resources, the company ensured that Kay’s case and others like it moved at a snail’s pace. Meanwhile, her continuing cancer treatments and day-to-day life expenses were mounting. That was when her lawyer suggested she call USClaims for help.
