Q: What happens with a Product Liability/Talcum Powder case when the woman was diagnosed with Endometrial Carcinoma?
A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. You are describing a setting where the applicable legal theory would be based on products liability. That means the claimant tries to show a connection between use of a potentially dangerous product and a resulting injury. In general, these cases tend to involve large classes of plaintiffs, sometimes spanning broad geographic regions. If you go online, you could research the current situation of these cases and look into law firms that might be handling them. Good luck
