Experienced Asbestos Exposure Attorneys Helping Victims Navigate An Old Spice Talc Lawsuit

In April of 2021 a jury in California awarded $4.8 million to Willie McNeal, Jr. Mr. McNeal suffers from mesothelioma that the jury determined was caused by exposure to asbestos in Old Spice Talcum Powder. Talc used in the product came from an asbestos-contaminated mine in North Carolina, and the jury determined that mine owners were aware of the contamination. While this was the first successful Old Spice talc lawsuit, it may not be the last. Old Spice has marketed some versions of talcum powder since the 1930s. Millions of people have been exposed to asbestos through the product and may be eligible for compensation.

If you’ve ever used Old Spice Talcum Powder, we can determine your eligibility.

Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos is classified as a carcinogen (cancer-causing substance). It is most commonly associated with mesothelioma. For many victims of mesothelioma, symptoms won’t appear until years or decades after the exposure. This is why you should seek legal advice even if you aren’t currently experiencing symptoms.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

The most common symptoms of this disease are:

  • Persistent coughing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Pain or discomfort in the chest, shoulders, and back
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Fluid buildup in the lungs or abdomen

If you are diagnosed with asbestos-related cancer and you have used an Old Spice product in the past, you may qualify for an Old Spice talc lawsuit. We concentrate on these types of lawsuits and will quickly determine if you are eligible.

When clients are already showing symptoms of cancer, we know time is critical. The sooner we can get you a monetary award, the easier it will be for you and your family. Your health and well-being are always our top concerns at Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford, LLC.

Have You Been Exposed?

If you have ever used Old Spice talcum powdered products, you may have been in direct contact with asbestos. The more you have used the product, the greater your level of exposure could be. According to the National Cancer Institute, any level of exposure to asbestos is harmful and can have lifelong consequences.

Cancers Caused by Asbestos

Asbestos exposure can cause cancer. People who are exposed most commonly suffer from mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other asbestos-related cancers.

Even if you don’t have reason to suspect cancer, if you have ever been exposed to asbestos you should get a cancer screening from your personal physician. Most forms of cancer can be controlled or even cured if identified early enough.

Early awareness of cancer can save your life and improve your chances of succeeding at an Old Spice talc lawsuit.

Can You Sue on Behalf of Family Members?

Because mesothelioma and lung cancer are fast-acting diseases once they manifest, many of our clients are suing on behalf of family members who have already passed.

If you have lost a family member because of mesothelioma or another asbestos-related cancer, or have a family member who is too sick to petition on their own, you may be eligible to file an Old Spice talc lawsuit.

We know how difficult the death of a loved one is, especially when that death might have been preventable. We take your concerns seriously and provide answers that give you peace of mind.
