A number of health agencies, including the World Health Organization, The American Cancer Society, and others, have expressed concerns that the use of baby powder and body powder products for feminine hygiene containing talcum may place women at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. Earlier this year, the family of a woman who died from Ovarian Cancer was awarded a verdict after using Johnson & Johnson brand talcum baby powder. Since then, more than 1,200 additional lawsuits have been filed by woman with similar circumstances. If you or a loved one have used Johnson & Johnson baby powder or body powder products containing talcum for feminine hygiene and were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may qualify to file a lawsuit.

The number of newborns who suffer brain injury due to substandard medical care is large and the cost of providing necessary custodial, rehabilitation and medical care for those injured is a huge burden for families as well as for the schools, government support systems, medical insurers and ultimately the taxpayers who bear much of the cost to provide even the most minimal levels of care. The cost of loss of human potential and depression of the spirits and psyches of the injured and their loved ones is sobering and incalculable. We have successfully settled or tried numerous cases involving birth injury and are prepared to assist any family whose child was seriously injured because of negligence of the hospital, doctors or nurses at or around the time of birth.

The Federal False Claims Act contains a qui tam provision that encourages a private citizen who has evidence of fraud committed against the federal government to act as a whistleblower (also called relator) and sue on the government’s behalf to recover losses created by the fraud. Some states have also created statutes to protect state government against fraud by including qui tams provisions enabling them to recover money at the state level. The whistleblower law provides that if a qui tam suit is successful, the whistleblower receives a percentage of the recovery. In addition, once a qui tam lawsuit is filed, the law provides certain protections for the whistleblower including protection from retaliation in the workplace.
