Johnson and Johnson is facing about 1,200 law suits claiming studies have linked its Johnson’s Baby Powder and its Shower-to-Shower product to ovarian cancer.
This week jurors in St. Louis awarded the family of Jackie Fox, who died of ovarian cancer last year after using Johnson’s baby powder and another talc-based product for years, $10 million in compensatory damages and $62 million in a punishment award. This is the first case in which a jury has awarded damages over Johnson & Johnson’s talc products.

A jury has ordered Wright Medical to pay $11 million to a woman who alleged that she suffered from a defective hip implant. The award, which includes $1 million in compensatory damages and $10 million in punitive damages, was granted to the plaintiff at a recent bellwether trial. The lawsuit was filed by the woman back in 2013 and alleged that her Conserve hip implant came loose and caused tissue damage. The Atlanta jury ruled that the plaintiff had a defective hip implant and that Wright misrepresented the device’s safety.

I recently recovered $75,000.00 for an individual injured in an automobile accident in the City of St. Louis. Our client suffered a shoulder injury. The insurance company offered $45,000.00 prior to filing suit, and during litigation, I was able to obtain $75,000.00 for resolution of the case.
I also recently resolved a case against a boat rental company. Our client was injured when the boat seat that he was using collapsed, causing injury to his left ankle. I was able to recover $90,000.00 for our client’s damages.
