What Types of Injuries Are Caused by Talcum Powder?
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), talc (also called talcum powder) is a mineral mined from the earth that is composed of magnesium, silicon, oxygen, and hydrogen. Talc is common in cosmetic products, such as baby powder and facial powders, to absorb excess moisture and improve a product’s texture. However, talc has been linked to cancer cases since the 1960s.
Some of the types of cancer talc has been linked to include:
- Ovarian cancer
- Lung cancer
- Endometrial (uterine) cancer
- Other cancers
Cancer is a deadly disease and can be costly to treat. Medical costs in the United States are skyrocketing. It is critical to hold the companies producing talc products responsible for the harm they have caused. Our lawyers can help you pursue justice after a talc injury.
How Can I Prove My Talc Lawsuit?
Talc lawsuits in New York are typically filed as product liability suits. Product liability suits hold manufacturers responsible for releasing unsafe products to the public.
A manufacturer can be held liable for selling an unreasonably dangerous product if the product is proven to have a dangerous defect.
There are three kinds of defects:
- Improper warning labels
If you can prove that a dangerous product defect caused your injury or illness, the manufacturer is strictly liable for your losses. A strict liability product suit doesn’t require proof of negligence. These lawsuits are beneficial to plaintiffs because it is easier to prove the case when you just need to prove the product was unreasonably dangerous and caused the injury.
Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C. has experience building complex cases using expert testimony. We are exactly who you want on your side to prove your talc lawsuit in New York.
How Much Compensation Can I Get for My Talc Lawsuit in New York?
Talcum powder lawsuits in New York may have three types of damages available. These three types of damages are economic, non-economic, and punitive.
Punitive damages can be awarded by a jury to punish wrongful conduct by a product manufacturer to send a message to the industry. Economic damages are more common, and they compensate for all your medical expenses and other financial losses in the past and future.
Non-economic damages can compensate you for emotional harm, permanent physical limitations, and other non-financial losses due to your condition. Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C.’s wrongful death lawyers can help you through this difficult time if someone tragically passed away due to talcum powder use.
How Long Do I Have to Sue For Talc Injuries?
There are strict time limits to sue imposed by statute. In New York, the time limit to bring a personal suit is three years from the date you discover your injury. The time limit to bring a wrongful death suit is two years from death.
The statute of limitations can be complicated in talc lawsuits because someone may not discover their cancer for many years. When this happens, the clock may not start ticking until they realize they are sick. It is crucial that you contact Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C. as soon as you can to get started on your claim.
