Following a decade of hard work, more than a dozen major court cases, and the tragic deaths of many women from talcum powder cancer, Johnson & Johnson has finally offered a global settlement.
A landmark trust of $8.9 billion has been established to provide compensation to about 70,000 victims and for future claims. Women who suffered or died as a result of talcum powder ovarian cancer, now (or their estates) have a clear pathway to seek financial compensation.
In other news, a California jury recently awarded $18.8 million in damages to a 24-year-old who claimed that long-time use of the company’s talcum powder caused mesothelioma. This marks another big win for the Plaintiffs, and it will likely reinforce the view that J&J’s proposed settlement offer is not enough to resolve all talcum powder cancer claims. In fact, many believe that if it is approved, the settlement would only pay victims an average of about $100,000 each.
Furthermore, a bankruptcy judge dismissed Johnson & Johnson’s talc subsidiary’s second case. This was a sketchy attempt by J&J to delay further litigation and prevent other possible huge verdicts against them due to their defective talcum powder products. Attorneys are now gearing up for nationwide trials in order to put further pressure on the company to help secure a more favorable recovery for all victims that got sick or tragically passed away from their talcum powder products.
