Since the World Health Organization announced its Roundup cancer warning in early 2015, American consumers have learned of the connection between the herbicide Roundup and certain forms of cancer. Roundup has been in wide use in the United States for decades. First marketed by Monsanto in 1974, the popular weed-killer is available in hardware stores and garden centers nationwide.
Researchers have questioned the safety of Roundup since the product's inception, yet it was not until 2015 that a major public health body classified the weed killer as likely carcinogenic to humans. Evidence suggests Monsanto officials have not only been aware of the Roundup cancer risk, but have actively engaged in concealing risk information from the public by funding falsified research studies on Roundup. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer and have a history of using Roundup at home or at work, you may be eligible to file a Roundup cancer lawsuit.
Each case is different and we pride ourselves in giving personalized attention to each of our clients. To that end, our Roundup cancer attorneys are providing free, no-obligation case reviews to anyone who believe they may have grounds to file a lawsuit against Monsanto related to cancer.
Our Roundup lawyers consider the following points when evaluating Roundup cancer claims:
For persons and family members of persons who meet these qualifications, it is likely you will be eligible to file a Roundup cancer lawsuit. Individuals who have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia or another form of cancer relatively recently and have a history of using Roundup in the garden, lawn, or at work are among those who may be eligible for compensation.
Filing a claim is a serious decision that requires forethought. Most important for the future of your family is to recover damages for the medical expenses, lost income, and any other losses you have sustained as a result of the disease. No amount of money can undo the wrong that has been done to your family, but compensation can help you recover financially. More important than that to some is the chance to hold a large corporation accountable for patient safety and dishonest business practices. Evidence shows that Monsanto officials may have intentionally funded fraudulent safety studies to produce falsified Roundup safety results. For decades, Monsanto has marketed Roundup as safe for home use, even in light of the 2015 World Health Organization Roundup cancer warning. Many plaintiffs feel the company deserves to be punished for choosing profits over human lives, and pursue Roundup cancer lawsuits in order to achieve a small bit of justice.
