Roundup Cancer Lawsuit Attorney

Roundup Cancer attorneyRoundup is the most widely used herbicide in America amongst farmers, landscape maintenance workers, and homeowners to control weeds around crops and in lawns and gardens. It was manufactured by Monsanto, an agricultural chemical company founded in 1901. Today, many view Monsanto as the world’s most evil corporation because of their negligence which has allegedly put the lives of so many in jeopardy.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has recently stated that Roundup’s active chemical ingredient, glyphosate, could be linked to blood cancers, such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), a form of life-threatening cancer affecting white blood cells.

Although Roundup manufacturer, Monsanto Company, has maintained that glyphosate is safe for use, the allegations have resulted in multi-district litigation involving numerous plaintiffs claiming they have developed cancer caused by its products.

If you or a loved one has been affected by the use of Roundup, you may be entitled to compensation. Monetary damages will not undo the harm caused, but it can help you get the financial relief you deserve to get the full medical attention that you need. For more information, contact the Roundup cancer lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C.

Why Is Roundup Dangerous?

The small compound of glyphosate, Roundup’s main ingredient, has been sold as an active herbicide ingredient since 1974. For years, regulatory agencies have looked at the potential effects of this ingredient on non-target organisms. This small molecule has been studied for many years and linked to cancer, celiac disease, and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Studies show that farmers are at nearly double the risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Understanding the risk of Roundup is important not only to farmers, gardeners and consumers, but the environment as well. If you have been affected by Roundup, it is imperative that you seek immediate medical attention. It is also important to consult with the legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. to protect your legal rights.

What Do We Know About Roundup Litigation?

As part of the Monsanto lawsuits, plaintiff attorneys claim that Monsanto has known for more than 30 years the existence of a link between the use of Roundup and cancer. However, despite this knowledge, plaintiffs claim that the company intentionally made the decision not to warn the public, and even marketed the product to be as safe as table salt and practically non-toxic to humans and animals.

Litigation documents have revealed that the manufacturer created false documentation and data and attacked legitimate studies that exposed the dangers of the herbicide. The documents further reveal that Monsanto created a campaign of misinformation to convince government agencies, farmers, and the general public that Roundup was safe. These litigation documents even show that Monsanto colluded with the EPA to refute the link that Roundup causes cancer.

Side Effects and Injuries of Roundup

The most serious side effect from exposure to Roundup’s main ingredient of glyphosate, is the development of cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin lymphoma, leukemia, and B-cell lymphoma. Anyone who comes in contact with the herbicide is at risk. However, farmers and agricultural workers have the highest risk of serious injury since they are exposed to Roundup more often.

Individuals are exposed to glyphosate from breathing it in while spraying, mixing or cleanup, or though drinking water or eating food contaminated with the compound. Some side effects linked to common Roundup cancers include:

  • Chest pain or pressure
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Low red blood cell counts
  • Night sweats
  • Shortness of breath or cough
  • Swollen abdomen
  • Weight loss
