Class action litigation: Record award in talc powder case

A woman from Virginia has been awarded more than $110 million in compensation in a suit against the manufacturer of baby powder. The class action litigation alleged that the baby powder created by manufacturing giant Johnson & Johnson caused the woman's ovarian cancer. There are about 2,000 such lawsuits against the company in the United States and many more that have been launched in Canada.

Products liability in Canada: Metal-on-metal hip replacements

British researchers have found that metal-on-metal hip replacements are highly likely to fail. This paves the way for the launching of products liability suits by the tens of thousands of people over the world -- many of whom are in Canada -- who may be affected by that possibility. The research was mainly focused on a device known as the DePuy Pinnacle device, which is a metal liner as a replacement socket and a metal ball that acts like the bone in the top of the thigh.

Protection and advocacy for every litigation case.
