Were you harmed by exposure to Roundup?

In the summer of 2018, the first of several hundred Roundup exposure lawsuits against Monsanto will go to trial, possibly setting the tone for the court and opening the door for many other victims to pursue justice against the bioengineering giant.

For many who lost loved ones to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or received such a diagnosis themselves, it has taken years to get the courts to take up the matter of Roundup weed killer and its possible links to non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The chemicals in the product are alleged to cause the disease to develop in those exposed to it. While the courts have yet to issue a ruling in the initial case, some industry analysts believe it could be a day of reckoning for Monsanto.

If you suspect that you or someone you love developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma after exposure to Roundup, it is important to assess your experience and identify the strongest grounds that you have in order to file a lawsuit. An experienced personal injury attorney with understanding of chemical exposure lawsuits can help you examine the facts and build a case that protects your rights while seeking a fair resolution.

Why might Roundup exposure lead to non-Hodgkin lymphoma?

One of the central claims of Monsanto regarding its weed killer, Roundup - commonly known as glyphosate - is that it does not affect humans or animals. They claim that it instead targets specific enzymes found only in plants. In fact, this is one of its greatest selling points, and has been since it was introduced to consumers in the 1970s.

Under this claim, it is implied that using the weed killer indiscriminately on crops intended for human consumption is not dangerous, and the humans who are regularly exposed to the product face no serious threats to their health. However, opponents of glyphosate claim that the chemical also targets a certain enzyme that humans and other animals often carry in their gut bacteria.

According to opposition research, the effects of glyphosate on this enzyme can lead to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and over a thousand plaintiffs agree.

Considering your next steps

If you have reason to suspect that you or a loved one developed this potentially lethal form of cancer because of exposure to Roundup, you may have grounds to pursue a claim. In order to be compensated for your damages and losses related to the financial and physical costs of the disease, you should take action now.

It's important to also remember that pursuing these matters is a lengthy and complex process. Be sure to use all the tools you have available to ensure that you prepare a strong claim that truly represents your interests and seeks complete justice.
