Take Legal Action Against a Negligent Corporation
Roundup is a popular weed killer and pesticide that is commonly used by agricultural workers, garden center employees, landscapers, and even your regular gardening hobbyists. Since 1985, scientists have been studying the proposed link between glyphosate, a key ingredient in Roundup products, and various cancers, including non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, leukemia, and B-cell lymphoma. According to several studies and a report released by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer, glyphosate creates a potentially carcinogenic compound when mixed with Roundup's other chemical components.
While those who use Roundup regularly are at the greatest risk, scientific evidence also suggests that even a single exposure event can increase a person's chances of being diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
Dangerous exposure includes:
- Spraying a Roundup product
- Standing next to someone using a Roundup product
- Cleaning up the spilled chemical
- Mixing the chemical
- Eating or drinking something that has been exposed to a glyphosate-based product
Since 2017, over 9,000 cancer victims or their grieving families have filed claims against Monsanto, the creator of Roundup. Many lawyers are claiming that Monsanto has been aware of their product's carcinogenic properties for at least 30 years. However, instead of warning and protecting the public, Monsanto purposefully falsified scientific reports to hide the association between glyphosate and the proliferation of cancer cells.
Pursue Justice & Restitution
In 2018, a jury in San Francisco unanimously agreed that Monsanto demonstrated great negligence in failing to warn the public about the inherent danger associated with their products. The plaintiff in this case, DeWayne “Lee” Johnson, the jury awarded $289 million, and in post-verdict motions, the judge reduced it to $78 million.
