Our client’s mother died from ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson- brand talcum powder. While her son was incarcerated, her estate was linked to a massive verdict against the company and awarded millions in damages.
Although our client did not play a role in the case during trial, his sister did. Unfortunately, his sister passed away before the lawsuit was complete, and the settlement was transferred to our client’s brother-in-law. As such, the final settlement did not allocate any money to our client, and Sanders.Law helped him reopen the wrongful death lawsuit.
Because our client is the son of a woman who died after using talcum powder, he was entitled to compensation from negligent manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson. The defendants tried to use technicalities to deny our client’s claim, but Sanders.Law helped resolve the dispute during mediation.
Our team was pleased to direct the damages from the wrongful death lawsuit to the correct beneficiary. Now, our client has a sense of justice, and the family can move on with their lives. Attorney Steve Sanders explains:
“By taking that difficult issue out of the case, it took away the ‘lawyer fights’ and allowed the family to come together quickly and to amicably divide the proceeds.”
Our client looks forward to starting the healing process with his family and being reunited with his surviving relatives.
