In recent years, lawsuits have brought Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup into the light for being allegedly harmful to consumers. The lawsuits allege that Monsanto willingly continued to distribute their dangerous product while knowing it can cause certain types of cancer.
At Farmer, Cline & Campbell, PLLC, we represent people who have been exposed to Roundup and diagnosed with B-cell or T-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you believe that you or a loved one has become seriously ill because of exposure to Roundup, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation.
Injuries And Side Effects Of Roundup
Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, has serious side effects. Most notably, it has been linked to the development of cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and its subtypes, including:
- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
- Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
- Follicular lymphoma
- Hairy cell leukemia
- Mantle cell lymphoma
Lawsuits allege that Monsanto has known of a link between Roundup and cancer for more than 30 years but failed to warn the public. The company continued to market the dangerous product as safe for humans and pets. Litigation filings show the company created fake data and undermined legitimate studies about the safety of Roundup, going so far as to collude with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Who Is At Risk?
Anyone who has had significant exposure to Roundup or its main ingredient may be affected by the product. At increased risk are those with long-term exposure, including landscapers, garden center employees, farm workers, gardeners and workers at nurseries. If you have had prolonged exposure to Roundup and been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, we strongly recommend you speak with an attorney about the possibility of bringing a claim for damages.
Why File A Roundup Lawsuit?
No amount of money can change the past or undo the pain caused by this dangerous product. However, it may provide financial security so you can focus on your recovery, or help provide for your family after a loss of a loved one. In addition, many plaintiffs wish to hold negligent manufacturers accountable.
If you have received a diagnosis of B-cell or T-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, or hairy cell leukemia, you may be able to pursue compensation for your injuries and damages, including:
- Wage loss due to your illness
- Personal costs of your illness
- Past, current, or future pain and suffering from the injuries you received
- Any medical expenses that you have or will receive from your injuries and
- Punitive damages when appropriate and permitted by law.
