The Dangers of Roundup
Roundup is a popular herbicide that has been used commercially and domestically for decades. Glyphosate, the product’s active ingredient, blocks an enzyme that targeted weeds need to survive. Roundup has been used across the country on private property, in public parks and playgrounds, and in commercial nurseries. Perhaps the most troubling concern is that Roundup is sprayed on more than 80% of U.S. crops, from soybeans and wheat to corn and alfalfa. Even if you do not consume these crops, they could have been consumed by the livestock that you eat, passing the harm onto you and your family.
Though the World Health Organization only recently labeled glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen” in 2015, Monsanto may have known of the potential hazards for years and failed to disclose the information to consumers.
You are most likely to be affected by Roundup if you have been exposed to it regularly. That is why farmers, nursery workers, landscapers, and other agricultural workers are most susceptible to non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Taking Legal Action against Monsanto
Monsanto is facing numerous allegations that it knew about the link between Roundup and cancer for several years and failed to warn the public about the issue. Because of Monsanto’s failure to disclose the information, countless people continued to purchase and use a harmful product containing a probable carcinogen.
Our Roundup injury attorneys in Manassas are dedicated to investigating the extent of Monsanto’s corporate cover-up. We want to know much the company knew about the potential cancer link before the public outcry. Lawyers have recently discovered evidence that both the EPA and Monsanto knew about the hazards and actively tried to downplay the cancer risk by creating reports “proving” that Roundup does not cause cancer. The EPA used these reports to support Monsanto’s claims, even though numerous EPA toxicologists still believed there was a link between cancer and Roundup.
There have been numerous lawsuits filed against Monsanto. If you developed cancer after being exposed to Roundup, you may be eligible to file a class-action lawsuit against the company and pursue the compensation you deserve. Compensation may cover your medical bills, your pain and suffering, and your lost wages among other damages.
What Is the Value of a Roundup Lawsuit?
It is impossible to assign an exact dollar amount to any claim, as its value is entirely dependent on the unique circumstances of your situation.
Some factors that could affect the value of your claim include:
- The amount of time you have had cancer in relation to your level of exposure to Roundup
- The pain and suffering you experienced
- Your past, current, and future medical expenses related to your cancer treatment
- The amount of money you have lost from being unable to work
- Your lost earning potential
Filing a Roundup Lawsuit
The IARC’s conclusion of Roundup’s carcinogenic properties was the result of several years of research based on peer-reviewed studies and government reports. Since their findings have become public, many people have filed class-action lawsuits after developing cancer linked to Roundup exposure.
Many of these lawsuits include evidence that:
- They were exposed to glyphosate through Roundup
- Monsanto failed to accurately represent the safety of Roundup
- Monsanto did not properly warn users about the potential risk
- Monsanto knew about glyphosate’s carcinogenic properties
If you or someone you love has been exposed to Roundup and has developed lymphoma or another type of cancer within the last decade, we encourage you to get in touch with our Manassas Roundup lawsuit attorneys. It’s not too late to partake in a class-action lawsuit against Monsanto. You may also file a wrongful death lawsuit if you lost a loved one to cancer that was caused by Roundup.
Understanding Class-Action Lawsuits
After suffering an injury caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you have the right to pursue legal action and file a lawsuit. Usually, you go about this on your own, with the help of an attorney.
In a class-action lawsuit, however, you join a group of other individuals who have suffered similar damages from the same defendant. Together, you and these other plaintiffs pursue legal action. When you opt into a class action, you receive a portion of the reward if the case is successful.
