When a Manufacturer is Responsible for Personal Injuries

Accidents and injuries happen all the time. Some of them aren't caused by the person or people directly involved -- they're caused by a defective product.

Talcum Powder's Odyssey: From Acceptance to Suspicion

Johnson & Johnson's talcum powder journey dates back more than a century to 1894 when it was introduced to the market after receiving an overwhelming response from mothers following childbirth. The credit for inventing this product goes to Dr. Frederick B. Kilmer, the first director of scientific affairs of Johnson & Johnson. In 1893, Dr. Kilmer had first suggested the talc for skin irritation caused by medicated plasters. Later, it became popular amongst mothers post-delivery who demanded more of it and the rest, as they say, is history.
