Experienced Asbestos Exposure Attorneys Helping Victims Navigate Clubman Talc Lawsuits

When you buy a cosmetic or personal care product, you trust that it’s been made with safe, non-toxic ingredients and will work as intended. Buyers depend on manufacturers to create products that won’t cause them harm. However, when a consumer product manufacturer fails to uphold their responsibility to consumers and releases a dangerous product, they may be held liable in a defective product personal injury lawsuit. If you were exposed to asbestos from a Clubman-based talcum powder product and were diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer, you may have the right to file a lawsuit against the maker of Clubman talcum powder products. Contact us today to determine if you are eligible to participate in a Clubman talc lawsuit.

Clubman Talc Lawsuit Talcum Powder Cancer Asbestos Attorneys

Clubman talc products may have contained asbestos in the past. Exposure to talc products has been linked to a higher risk of mesothelioma. In 2016, a jury awarded a man who was exposed to Clubman talc $18 million after a successful Clubman talc lawsuit.

How Are Asbestos and Talcum Powder Linked?

Talc and asbestos are similar minerals; both are very soft and mined underground. In fact, the two minerals are often located together, which means that sometimes talc can be contaminated by asbestos.

Many talc products sold in the U.S. contained asbestos, including some Clubman talc products.

How Do Asbestos and Talc Cause Cancer?

Asbestos is composed of tiny, needle-like particles that irritate the lungs when inhaled.

Prolonged exposure to asbestos, such as through repeated use of talcum powder that contains the substance, can lead to irritation on the surface of the lungs and eventually mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer characterized by damage to the cells on the surface of the lungs.

People who were using talc products in the past may have been exposed to cancer-causing substances. Talc used in these products may have contained dangerous levels of asbestos.

This contention is the basis of the Clubman talc lawsuit.

The History of the Clubman Talc Lawsuit

Philip Depoian was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2015 after using Clubman talc and other products (Old Spice, Kings Men, and Mennen Shave Talc) for decades. He worked in a barbershop that his father owned, and these products were used in the shop. In 2016, a jury awarded Depoian $18 million in damages for asbestos exposure.

Talc supplier Whittaker, Clark & Daniels was named as the defendant in the lawsuit. The company was alleged to have advertised its talc as “asbestos-free,” although it did not test the talc to determine whether this was accurate.

Under consumer product liability law, the company could have been considered negligent in claiming that the talc was free of asbestos without testing it for certainty.

The lawsuit was filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, and the case is titled In Re: Philip Depoian et al. vs. American International Industries et al. — Case No. BC607192.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer, but it’s quite severe and often deadly. It is caused by exposure to asbestos, and many sufferers may not develop symptoms until the cancer is quite advanced.

If you’ve been using Clubman talc or other talcum powder products and developed these symptoms, see your doctor right away:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Cough
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fluid buildup in lungs or abdomen
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss

Mesothelioma typically appears several decades after asbestos exposure, so people who used these products in the past may only now be developing symptoms.

Mesothelioma is a particularly aggressive form of cancer, caused by talcum powder products containing asbestos. Mesothelioma starts on the outer layers of the lungs.

How Can the Clubman Talc Lawsuit Help Me?
