    Skillful representation for users of cancer-linked herbicide in West Virginia

    Over the past few years, juries have returned very large verdicts in favor of plaintiffs who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a blood cancer as a result of their exposure to the popular weed killer Roundup. 

    In May 2019, a California jury awarded $2 billion to an Oakland couple who used the weed-killing product for over 40 years. That verdict is under review, but as of August 2019, there are more than 18,000 pending lawsuits charging that Roundup’s manufacturer failed to warn against the health dangers posed by its use.

    Compassionate Roundup Lawsuit Lawyers

    Monsanto (now part of Bayer AG) began manufacturing and marketing Roundup as an herbicide in 1974. It soon became one of the most popular herbicides on the market and frequently used in the production of corn, wheat, soybeans, sugar beets, alfalfa, cotton, and more. More recently, Roundup was used to eliminate unwanted growth around genetically modified plants. 

    However, in 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer linked glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, to various types of cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and leukemia. 

    Though Roundup was primarily used in the agricultural industry, it also presents great risks to landscapers and home gardeners that make frequent use of the product.

    If you have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another form of cancer after working with Roundup, or if you believe you have an illness related to the use of the product, you may be entitled to financial compensation. 

    Bayer has been engaging in negotiations with plaintiffs’ attorneys for a global settlement of the thousands of Roundup-related claims pending, so it’s important to lodge your claim promptly.
