Everyone has used talc at some point in their lives because it is everywhere from makeup to baby powder. It has been a common ingredient in treating chafed, irritated skin for decades.
However, recent studies have found trace amounts of asbestos in the product raising health concerns.
If you believe that you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos poisoning through the use of talc in baby powder or makeup, you have options. Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C. has a reputation for aggressive pursuit of compensation for clients who have injuries from unsafe medicinal products.
How Does Asbestos Get In Talc?
It is troubling that asbestos, a known carcinogen, would end up in a common household product used on infants. This happens because talc and asbestos are natural materials found in similar areas. As a result of that, producing of talcum powder is almost impossible without the inclusion of trace amounts of asbestos. Talcum use has been linked with:
- Lung cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Uterine cancer
We take an aggressive stance with insurance companies who attempt to get out of paying the necessary compensation for negligent actions. If you or your loved ones suffer from injuries or conditions that may have been caused by the use talc, contact us immediately.
