The Dangers of Roundup
Roundup is a common over-the-counter herbicide that kills weeds and grasses. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is a chemical that prevents plants from developing a certain enzyme they need to survive. Roundup is commonly used around private homes, on commercial nurseries, and in public parks.
It is also used on commercial farms, sprayed on crops including:
Who Is Affected by Roundup Exposure?
Consuming food sprayed with Roundup could put you at risk, as could eating livestock that consumed Roundup-affected crops. You are most likely to develop cancer caused by Roundup if you were repeatedly exposed to it – for example, if you sprayed it on your lawn regularly.
People who have been exposed to Roundup could be more likely to develop:
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Primary Central Nervous System (CNS) Lymphoma
- B-cell Lymphoma
- Multiple Myeloma
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
- Follicular Lymphoma
- Cutaneous & Anaplastic T-Cell
- Multiple Myeloma
Filing a Roundup Lawsuit against Monsanto
Allegedly, Monsanto knew for several years of the possible link between Roundup and cancer – however, they failed to give the public any warning about the potential hazards of their product. This prevented innocent consumers from making informed decisions about using Roundup.
Our Baltimore Roundup injury lawyers are committed to investigating the extent to which Monsanto knew about the hazards of Roundup and the extent of the corporation’s cover-up.
Lawyers have discovered evidence that Monsanto and the EPA ghostwrote reports “proving” that there was no link between Roundup and cancer. The EPA used these falsified reports to support the claim, even though EPA toxicologists believed there were 14 different ways that Roundup could potentially cause cancer.
In the years since the Roundup scandal was first revealed, there have been many lawsuits filed against Monsanto. If you believe you may have been affected by Roundup within the last 10 years, you may be able to file a class-action lawsuit and obtain compensation for the damages that Roundup caused.
The Value of Your Claim
The compensation you can expect to receive by filing a lawsuit depends on the unique circumstances of your situation.
Some of the key factors to consider when estimating the value of your claim include:
- How long you have had cancer
- The level of your exposure to Roundup
- Your pain and suffering
- The costs of your medical treatment
- Lost wages
Wrongful Death Claims against Monsanto
Unfortunately, many people have been lost to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other types of cancer caused by Roundup exposure. However, it is important for you to know that you may still file a lawsuit even if your loved one has passed away. You may be able to obtain compensation for your loved one’s medical expenses, funeral costs, and your own loss of enjoyment or companionship.
Keep in mind that you can only file a wrongful death claim if you are a close family member of the deceased, such as a spouse, parent, grandparent, or guardian. Discuss your situation with our Baltimore Roundup lawsuit attorneys to see if you qualify.
