Helping Clients with a Cancer Diagnosis after Using Roundup Weed Killer
Multi-billion dollar corporation Monsanto developed and manufactured many types of consumer products, including the popular weed killer, Roundup. While Monsanto marketed Roundup as safe for use both for homeowners and major agricultural producers, the main ingredient, glyphosate, has been linked to diagnoses of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in people exposed to the product. Juries have already determined that Monsanto knew about the carcinogenic properties of Roundup yet concealed them, putting consumers at serious health risks.
As Monsanto became a force in the agricultural industry, the number non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases also increased in the United States. If you received a cancer diagnosis after being exposed to Roundup, you may be entitled to substantial compensation for your medical bills, emotional distress, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other losses. You also may have important legal rights if you lost a loved due to cancer after Roundup exposure. Call the Benner Law Firm to learn more as soon as possible.
Roundup cases have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL). These cases can be complicated and involve many plaintiffs coming from many different circumstances. Some Roundup plaintiffs include:
- Agricultural workers
- Nursery employees
- Garden center employees
- People living near farmland
- People exposed at home
Evidence suggests that even one exposure to Roundup can lead to a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis. This means that you do not have to work for a major agricultural operation to be at risk. In addition, unhealthy amounts of glyphosate have been found in 28 types of non-organic oat-based breakfast cereals and oatmeals, meaning simply having breakfast can result in exposure.
