Talcum Powder Health Related Lawsuit Settlement Funding
Health issues caused by talcum powder can lead to large settlements, thus using a settlement funding company can help offset lawsuit costs such as lawyer fees as well as medical bills that are a result of the side effects caused by the talcum powder. Lawsuits related to this have been emerging for a while, meaning that there is a precedent established and it plays in the favor of those who bring forth new lawsuits against talcum powder manufacturers. These lawsuits have had large sums awarded and can help bring a lawsuit loan to help pay for bills.
What Is Talcum Powder?
Talcum powder is usually a mix of talc or talcum and fragrance or perfume. Talcum itself is a mineral and is composed of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen predominantly with a few other additives from time to time. This mix of elements and perfumes can cause health issues. These can happen to just about anyone who has used talcum powder. It should be noted that while talcum powder and baby powder are often thought of as one and the same, baby powder is not always made of talc as talcum powder is. Baby powder can be made of a mix of talc and perfume or a mix of cornstarch and perfume. So this means that not all baby powders are problematic while all talcum powders can be.

What Issues Can Talcum Powder Cause?
As with many drugs or devices that were minimally tested, or not tested at all before being put on the market, talcum powder has been causing some issues. This means that a product like talcum powder which was put on the market in the late 1800s was not thoroughly tested before that. Of course, changes were made to it since then and some testing has happened, but issues persisted and people were even discouraged or warned from using talcum powder on their babies as far back as 1969. Specifically, issues can come up from using talcum powder with some serious health complications included. These are listed below with more information about each.
Mucous Membrane Issues
This is one that is harder to prove and can even be harder to spot. This issue is a drying of the mucous membranes. The mucous membranes are the lining of many cavities in the body, keeping the body protected from germs and bacteria entering through that cavity. A good example of this is the inside of one’s nasal cavity. When these dry out, they do not work as well as they should and it can lead to diseases and a compromised immune system. Talcum powder can cause these to dry out and not be able to get back their function over time.
One of these issues is mesothelioma, a cancer often caused by asbestos. Asbestos can sometimes be found in talcum powder as it is naturally occurring to the source material of this powder. Other respiratory issues that can be caused by talcum powder include asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, and talcosis. Of course, only a medical professional can diagnose any of these and other issues. As for them being related to talcum powder use, it’s something that is harder to prove, but a good medical case can help.
As some of the components of talcum powder, like asbestos, can be carcinogenic, meaning that they can cause cancer, ovarian cancer is one of the possibilities. Since some women have been using talcum and other powders to keeps “chub rub” (when two body parts rub during movements, such as thighs against each other while walking) from happening, the powder may have found its way up to their reproductive organs. Talcum powder and baby powders have been used to wick the moisture away and keep this previous issue from happening. Some women use or have used powders on their privates to keep any kind of bacterial odors from happening, thus putting the powder close to sensitive areas which could possibly become the cause of ovarian cancer.
History Of Problems Related To Talcum Powder
As mentioned above, medical professionals have been warning against the use of talcum powder on babies since 1969, which tends to help establish a history of the issues met nowadays. This is helpful in building a case for you since there is a lot of information about these issues.
Other Lawsuits For Talcum Powder Related Issues
There are other reasons to sue for talcum powder related issues such as men who have used it in similar manners as women have and have seen related health issues crop up. People that were infants before the baby powder was changed (from using talcum to cornstarch or other elements) may also be entitled to monetary compensation for the side effects and health issues it may have caused. Basically, here is where consulting both a medical professional and a lawyer is very important.
Recent Lawsuits Against Talcum Powder Manufacturers
Recently, a slew of lawsuits have been brought against talcum powder manufacturers and they have included cases relating to mesothelioma and ovarian cancers. These cases have been done as class-action lawsuits and individual lawsuits with each case getting seen by a judge. In 2016, a class-action lawsuit brought in a settlement of $197 million that was then split between the participants. This is, of course, an exemplary judgment and settlement, but it can be used as a precedent.
Talcum powder lawsuits have a precedent in the American judicial system with major wins on the side of plaintiffs including high sum wins like the 2018 settlement in a class-action lawsuit of $4.7 billion which was split between 20 plaintiffs following an ovarian cancer lawsuit. A precedent like this means that some companies will want to settle out of court to avoid having to pay so much in damages and they may want to avoid getting too much press. Litigation doesn’t mean that there is no win, it simply means things are usually done out of court and can sometimes proceed faster. Having a lot of precedent set-up before going against a large company helps to know whether you have a chance of winning and how high could the sum awarded be.
Why Sue Over These Issues
Suing over issues brought on by the use of talcum powder can help with many related expenses and getting a lawsuit loan while the legal battle is ongoing can help alleviate a lot of stress caused by the process. Of course, not all cases are eligible for legal funding, but with something like a talcum powder lawsuit with its precedent, a lawsuit loan is almost guaranteed. The amount you can get as a loan though will depend on the situation, the seriousness of the side effects, and how much has been spent on getting treatment and other expenses before bringing the case to court or litigation.
One of the main sources of bills in medical lawsuits that need to be covered are the medical ones. The side effects of talcum powder could lead to accumulated medical bills and ongoing treatments. These are things that a lawsuit loan can cover and that should be looked into when a lawsuit is brought against a talcum powder company or distributor. Getting these costs covered before a case is settled can seriously help with the stress that results from high medical costs.
Pain And Suffering
Stress from being sick and other related issues is referred to as “pain and suffering.” While this is harder to prove, there is a way for medical professionals and mental health professionals to establish the damage done by talcum powder and related products. “Pain and suffering” is something that is often established from precedent and can be rather low or seemingly high. It’s much better to aim high, but there is always a possibility that you won’t get any money so consider this when applying for a pre-settlement loan. The amount borrowed should not be larger than the amount awarded in your settlement.
Permanent damage is something that is most associated with accidents and dismemberment, but it can also apply here as the victims of ovarian cancer derived from the usage of talcum powder can often lose their ovaries and even uterus, leaving them with permanent issues. This also leaves them infertile and thus there is a claim to be made on that. This may not be an obvious loss of a body part, but as a woman, it can feel like the loss of their life or their capacity to give life.
Other expenses can come up such as bills that you can’t cover due to missed wages, so they add up fast. Those are also part of what your lawsuit loan can cover and should be calculated before requesting the loan. As talcum powder lawsuits have a history of high pay-outs, asking for money to cover these should be easy. Here the settlement amounts have been large and a lawyer can help calculate an educated estimate of how much such a lawsuit should bring. That means that the amount calculated should be pretty close and thus asking for more should not be a problem with this type of lawsuit.
How Much Can Your Case Be Worth
Depending on the extent of the damage to the plaintiff, the amount will vary. In the recent past, $197 million was granted to a class-action lawsuit, so joining a currently active class-action lawsuit can be a smart move. If one wishes to file a lawsuit alone, depending on the details, a case can be worth up to $29 million as shown by the case of a woman in California in 2019. The amounts here can be fairly massive. It must be noted that these cases are exceptional and not all cases will pay this much.
Get The Money You Need
It all comes down to getting the money you need to be able to pay your bills as well as your lawyer while the court case is in process. A good lawsuit loan company will help you figure out the best amount and payment plan once your settlement comes in. Give us a call at our toll-free number to speak with a specialist: (###) ####-####
