Attorney Mullins was very nice, prompt and courteous. I would recommend her and the firm to anyone.
My case was handled very promptly and the firm really cared about my feelings and opinions.
I would recommend Pintas & Mullins to a friend or relative because every other firm refused to help me. I also enjoy the answers Attorney Pintas gives on the radio.
I was referred to your firm by a good friend. This was my first experience of this nature and your office and Laura made a difficult time a lot easier to deal with.
Your firm did an excellent job for me. Because the other parties had no insurance or ways to pay, I expected nothing. But your firm got me quite a bit. I thank you.
Talcum Powder Cases & Research
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found in rock and soil. It can be lethal when it enters the human body, causing lung cancer, mesothelioma, stomach cancer and many other diseases. Asbestos-based talcum powder has been linked to ovarian and uterine cancer in women.
Johnson & Johnson is one of the biggest companies that has been sued for asbestos in its talcum powder products, especially in its baby powder.
Some key facts:
- The earliest reports of asbestos in J&J talc products date back to 1957-1958.
- As of April 2020, the cosmetics giant faces around 16,000 lawsuits alleging that its talc products have led to ovarian cancer.
- The company paid $9 million in February 2020 to an 82-year-old Florida woman who allegedly developed mesothelioma after using Johnson & Johnson talc products.
- It settled a case in California for $2 million in January 2020.
- One of the largest payouts was in 2018, when a jury ordered the company to pay more than $4 billion to 22 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
