First California Talc Trial Ends in Record $417M Verdict for Plaintiff

August 21, 2017

TALCUM POWDER LITIGATION

 
On August 21, 2017, a Los Angeles jury awarded Eva Echeverria a record $417 million after finding that Johnson & Johnson failed to properly warn its customers of the cancer risks associated with talc mineral in its baby powder. Echeverria used Johnson & Johnson’s talc containing baby powder daily for over 60 years. In 2007, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and after learning about the potential link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, she filed a lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson.

 

She was awarded $70 million in compensatory damages and $347 million in punitive damages.

 

Hundreds of other talcum powder lawsuits are awaiting trial in California, and across the country. At FrancoLaw, we will continue updating the Talcum Powder Lawsuit status as the litigation advances.
