Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban represents clients throughout the Carolinas, Virginias and Florida in litigation arising from instances of ovarian cancer and lung problems caused by the use of talcum powder. Billions of dollars have been awarded in these cases, but without prompt action, you might not be able to obtain the payment you deserve.

Skillful advocates handle cases alleging problems caused by talc

With more than 200 years of combined experience assisting people harmed by dangerous household products and other types of negligence, our attorneys provide clients exceptional advocacy and service. Tests have shown that women who use talcum powder — which is made from talc, a mineral made up of magnesium, silicon and oxygen— have a 20 to 30 percent greater chance of contracting ovarian cancer. However, various factors might be required to support a claim, including:

  • Use of talcum powder in the genital area for at least four years, followed by a diagnosis of ovarian, cervical, uterine or endometrial cancer. This applies to women who applied powder directly and those who used feminine hygiene products containing talc.
  • A biopsy result showing the presence of talc.
  • A family history free from ovarian, cervical, uterine or endometrial cancer.

Talc-related claims can also arise from the substance’s use in makeup and other consumer products where talc particles are inhaled, leading to lung problems. No matter what your situation entails, you need to take quick action. Some states give victims only one year to file a lawsuit. We offer a free initial consultation so you can get professional assistance right away.

    I live in the Northeast. I had a complicated claim and because I already have a high rating, no one near me wanted to take my case. I contacted this firm and they gladly accepted my business. I worked closely with attorney Ryan Spencer and paralega...

    This law firm helped me get the VA to classify my husband as 100% disabled from an injury he suffered while in the Navy which later gave rise to Parkinson's. They're very good.
