Roundup Linked to non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

The popular weed and root killer Roundup™, which is currently the most popular and best selling herbicide in the world, is being investigated for claims that its active ingredient “glyphosate” may be linked to an increased risk of cancer, or more specifically, non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL). Plaintiffs also claim that the product’s manufacturer, Monsanto, failed to sufficiently warn its users of these increased risks in order to avoid profit losses, as the company has known of the link between its product and potential cancer cases for more than 30 years.

 

Lawsuit Allegations:

Lawsuits filed against Monsanto contain a combination of the following allegations:

  • Exposure to glyphosate can cause cancer
  • Monsanto has known that exposure to glyphosate presents human health risks, including a risk of developing cancer
  • Monsanto’s Roundup labels fail to warn consumers about the risk of cancer
  • Monsanto misrepresented Roundup’s health and environmental risks, ultimately misinforming government agencies, farmers, and the public of its safety issues

 

Injury Criteria

  • Only B cell or T cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (“NHL”) or its subtypes:
    • Follicular lymphoma
    • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
    • Mantle cell lymphoma
    • Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
    • Hairy cell leukemia
  • NHL diagnosis must be at least 12 months after initial use
  • The official criteria has yet to be determined, so any injury you may have suffered due to Roundup exposure could qualify, contact us to find out

 

Exposure Criteria

  • Duration: At least one month of exposure or two weeks per year for two years. Limited exposure may also qualify, ask one of our Roundup attorneys.
  • Cause: At-home use (i.e. using roundup to kill weeds in a garden) or commercial use (i.e. person working as a landscaper or on a farm).
  • Indirect Exposure: May be a weaker case, discuss with one of our Roundup attorneys if your case is strong enough for litigation (i.e. rode on tractor while someone else sprayed; someone washed farmer’s clothes after spraying).
  • Time Restrictions: Last Roundup use cannot be prior to 1985.

 

Age Limitations

  • Cases in which plaintiff is under 80 have the best chances of successful litigation.
  • The strongest cases are for those who are under 65 at the time of diagnosis.
  • *No age will be rejected*

 

If you’ve been exposed to Roundup and feel you match the listed criteria above, you may be eligible to receive compensation for damages suffered, medical expenses or lost work wages. Contact us immediately or give us a call to find out more. (800-229-7704).
