Without taking responsibility or reversing its stance on product safety, Johnson & Johnson is reportedly set to settle more than 1,000 talcum-based baby powder lawsuits for $100 million. However, the company’s legal troubles are far from over. It still faces thousands of lawsuits claiming its talcum powder products caused certain types of cancer and lung disease.
This means there are thousands of plaintiffs with pending lawsuits. Of these, many were diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using products containing talcum powder. If this happened to you, you may now be facing mounting medical expenses, and struggling to pay your bills. That’s where we come in. We now provide pre-settlement funding, Lawsuit funding is not the funding of litigation or litigation expenses, but is sometimes accomplished through an assignment of a portion of the proceeds from the case in exchange for cash to cover routine personal expenses.
What is lawsuit funding?
Lawsuit funding is alternative financing that provides the money you need to cover your bills and/or medical expenses until your talcum powder case is resolved.

If your application is approved, and you and your attorney sign the provided contract, we can get you your pres-settlement money right away, often within as little as 24 hours

Are you eligible?
To determine your eligibility, we take several factors into account. These include the magnitude of your injuries and where your case is being heard. You must also meet the following criteria.

More information about talcum powder lawsuits
According to published reports, Johnson & Johnson decided to settle some claims after juries rendered verdicts for plaintiffs in talcum powder lawsuits. Published reports also indicate the company has appealed some of these verdicts. If the appeals fail, the company must pay plaintiffs billions in compensation.
One of the largest verdicts dates to 2018, when a jury ordered Johnson &to pay $4.7 billion to a group of women who alleged its talcum powder caused their ovarian cancer. The company secured a partial victory on appeal, when the judge reduced the award to $2.1 billion.
The Food and Drug Administration’s October 2019 announcement that it had discovered “a small amount of asbestos” in a sample of Johnson’s Baby Powder complicated matters for the company. In response, Johnson & Johnson voluntarily recalled more than 30,000 bottles of the product “out of an abundance of caution.”
Finally, In May 2020, Johnson & Johnson announced it would discontinue talcum powder sales in the U.S. and Canada. The company reportedly attributed its decision to lack of demand in the North American market. The company largely attributed this decline to “changes in consumer habits and fueled by misinformation around the safety of the product and a constant barrage of litigation advertising.”
Clearly, Johnson & Johnson’s decision to halt sales of products containing talcum powder here came too late for thousands of women across the United States.
