Contact Calcagno & Associates if You Have Cancer Caused by Talc Use!
For more than 40 years there have been suspicions in the medical industry that the use of talcum powder is related to the development of cancer in the reproductive system. The most serious potential side effect from the use of talcum powder by women is ovarian cancer, caused by talc particles entering the ovaries through the vagina and traveling into the fallopian tubes, increasing a woman’s risk for developing ovarian cancer by 30–60%. Studies show that the more often a woman uses this product on her genital area, the more likely she will experience ovarian cancer.
More than one thousand lawsuits have been filed by women who have suffered ovarian cancer as a result of using talcum powder on their genital area. If you are a woman who regularly used talcum powder for feminine hygiene and were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to significant compensation.Contact Calcagno & Associates today for your free consultation.

$2,000,000 – SETTLEMENT – WRONGFUL DEATH – PRODUCTS LIABILITY
ESSEX COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT, NEWARK, NEW JERSEY
A 46 year-old diesel mechanic was crushed to death while repairing a valve inside the compactor unit of a front-end loader garbage truck. The valves, which were being repaired by the mechanic, should have been located outside the compactor unit, rather than inside the unit where the crushing compactor blade was located. After the mechanic repaired the blade with the truck running, the blade began to move toward him, but he was trapped inside the compactor unit. When the owner of the garbage carting company screamed to the mechanic to get out of the truck, the driver of the truck mistakenly jumped out of the cab and failed to push the kill switch to the compactor blade which was located next to him in the cab. Unfortunately, by the time the owner jumped in the cab to push the kill switch, it was too late.
