A Roundup attorney can help you seek compensation for cancer you got from using Roundup herbicide. Call today.
Sometimes, the simplest household devices and chemicals can be dangerous. Victims of such products may be able to sue the manufacturer. One major example of such a case is Roundup.
This herbicide product, from the major multinational corporation Monsanto (acquired by Bayer in 2018), appears to have caused cancer in countless people who used it professionally or at home to kill weeds. Since that revelation, hundreds of lawsuits have alleged that Monsanto knew that Roundup might cause cancer.
Some of those lawsuits have secured hundreds of millions of dollars for victims—and rightly so. Any company that would knowingly endanger consumers with its products should be held accountable. If you developed cancer after using Roundup, a Roundup lawyer from Monge & Associates can help you seek personal injury compensation.
Were You Exposed to Roundup?
The alleged cancer-causing qualities of Roundup are tied to a substance called glyphosate. This substance is what gives Roundup its herbicidal properties. And it appears to be causing cancer in some people who have been exposed to it.
Exposure to glyphosate can happen in several ways:
- Eating food that grew in soil treated with Roundup
- Breathing in air near where Roundup is being sprayed
- Drinking water that is contaminated with Roundup
- Touching plants that have Roundup on them
Like most carcinogens, glyphosate is more likely to cause cancer in large amounts or long periods of exposure. That fact puts a few groups in particular at risk of Roundup-related cancer:
- Agricultural workers
- Plant nursery workers
While professionals who used Roundup nearly every day likely face the highest risk of cancer from Roundup exposure, anyone who used the product may face a raised risk of cancer.
Types of Cancer Linked to Roundup Weed Killer
Exposure to glyphosate has been tied to a raised risk of several kinds of cancer:
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Multiple myeloma
- B-cell lymphoma
If you have developed any of these types of cancer after using Roundup, you may be eligible for compensation. Talk to a Roundup cancer lawyer about your legal options.
Suing Monsanto for Cancer from Roundup Exposure
Several lawsuits against Monsanto for Roundup-related cancer have seen success so far, and hundreds more are pending. This is good news for those who have become victims of Monsanto’s apparent negligence, but keep in mind that proving that you got cancer from a particular product is hard to do.
Cancer can develop from multiple sources or no apparent cause at all. You can bet on Monsanto trying to say you got your cancer from something other than Roundup. The good news is that an experienced Roundup cancer attorney will know how to convince the court that you did, in fact, develop cancer from Roundup and you do, in fact, deserve compensation.
