Roundup lawsuits seek compensation for claims that Roundup contains an ingredient, glyphosate, that causes the development of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL). These lawsuits are often filed against employers who use Roundup and may involve other defendants. The damages incurred by the usage of Roundup include physical illness, and various medical expenses. If you or a loved one have used Roundup products and have been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, contact Whitener Law Firm for a free consultation to discuss and gather evidence for your case.
What Is Roundup?
Roundup, manufactured by Monsanto and later bought by Bayer, is a broad-spectrum glyphosate-based herbicide and is widely used across the United States for the elimination of weeds and grasses in landscaping, agricultural work, gardening, and more. While Monsanto maintains that Roundup contains no harmful chemicals to humans, a panel of scientists from the World Health Organization declared Roundup, which contains glyphosate, to be a probable human carcinogen in 2015.
Since then, there have been over 30,000 pending Roundup lawsuits, with 110,000 cases settled and paid out by Monsanto. In one such case, a California jury found that the company failed to adequately warn consumers about the dangers of Roundup. The jury also found that Bayer failed to adequately disclose the cancer risks associated with Roundup.
Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Induced By Roundup
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or NHL, is a cancer that affects your body’s lymphatic system, which is in charge of your body’s immune defense. Roundup exposure can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma to develop and lay dormant or undetected for several years before causing symptoms to the individual. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma requires expensive invasive treatment that can have adverse effects on the body such as liver failure, bone marrow damage, infections, and nerve damage.
