Agrochemical giant Monsanto is responsible for the manufacturing of Roundup, one of the most recognizable brands of weed killer in the United States.
For nearly 30 years, Monsanto has marketed and sold Roundup with the knowledge the weed killer has strong links to cancer. Now the people who are suffering from cancer caused by excessive exposure to Roundup can take action against Monsanto for intentionally lying to Americans for 30 years.
Timing is now critical as Monsanto’s parent company, Bayer is appointing a settlement committee to settle all of these potential claims.
Attorneys Peter M. Goldberg and Blair Weigand are here to assist those who have developed the following kinds of cancer after exposure to Roundup:
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
If you or a loved one had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Leukemia and have used Roundup in the past for more than 8 (total) hours, …you may have a claim for compensation! DO NOT DELAY! Call our offices today for a free, no-obligation consultation.
There is strong evidence linking Roundup to non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, yet Monsanto marketed their signature weed killer to be “as safe as table salt.”
Monsanto went to great lengths to hide their knowledge of Roundup’s link to cancer, including forging documents, cooking fake data, and perpetrating attacks on any study that linked Roundup to cancer.
This misinformation campaign was explicitly targeted at farmers who would buy the product in bulk. There may be proof Monsanto went as far as to cooperate with the EPA to collectively disprove Roundup’s link to cancer.
Roundup’s Injuries and Side Effects
The root of Roundup’s lethality lies in its signature ingredient — glyphosate. Discovered by Monsanto in 1970, glyphosate has been used in Roundup for decades and has finally started to get the attention it deserves as a lethal pesticide.
Prolonged exposure to glyphosate can cause the user to develop the following kinds of cancer:
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- B-Cell Lymphoma
Symptoms of these illnesses can start with sweating, fever, stomach pain, chest pain, loss of appetite, and most notably swollen lymph nodes. Anyone who has prolonged exposure to Roundup who experiences all these symptoms should contact a doctor immediately.
Who Could Develop Cancer from Roundup?
Any profession that uses pesticides, specifically Roundup, could develop cancer from the use of these pesticides. Most commonly, those professions are:
- Plant Nursery Supervisors
- Garden Center Employees
This problem, however, is not limited to professionals using Roundup.
Any person using the weed killer Roundup over 8 hours could be susceptible to a cancer diagnosis.
But, if you do work in one of these professions, or have merely used Roundup at home, have been around excessive amounts of Roundup and are now showing any of the symptoms mentioned above, you may be entitled to one or more of the following types of compensation or damages:
- Lost wages
- Appropriate Punitive Damages
- Past and Future Medical Expenses to cover non-Hodgkin’s leukemia treatment
- Past and future pain and suffering resulting from injuries
- Other economic losses resulting from injury and illness
The Science Behind Roundup
According to research by the International Agency for Cancer Research, glyphosate causes DNA and chromosomal damage in human cells. This includes many positive results with cancer in experimental animals.
Also, there is evidence of increased blood markers of chromosomal damage in cultures exposed to glyphosate.
What Amount of Compensation Can I Receive in a Roundup Lawsuit?
This year a judge in Northern California awarded a man who spent 26 years using Roundup with $80 million in damages. Though the judge will reconsider the amount in an appeal, the fact of the matter is there are other examples of jury verdicts going in favor of victims, such as an Oakland, Calif. couple that was awarded $2 billion after a jury concluded their cancer diagnosis was connected to Roundup exposure.
More and more juries across the country are awarding verdicts in favor of cancer victims.
The time to act is now on your potential case.
Is there a Roundup Recall?
Despite all of the evidence that exists for Roundup not to be sold on shelves, no recall has been made.
In 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” In 2015, the International Agency for Cancer Research concluded that glyphosates are a possible carcinogen to humans.
