Toxic Tort Attorney and Non Hodgkin Lymphoma Lawyer representing plaintiffs nationwide in Roundup cancer lawsuits and product liability claims
A jury determined a California man’s cancer was at least partly caused by Roundup and has ordered Monsanto to pay over $80 million in damages. The jury found that Monsanto should be held liable for the non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer case because Roundup failed to warn consumers of the product’s cancer risks.
Roundup’s active ingredient glyphosate has been a concern for many years, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Roundup is the world’s most widely used weedkiller and is still on the market, presenting potential cancer risks for thousands of users in the U.S.
Joe Lyon is a highly-rated toxic tort attorney and non Hodgkin lymphoma lawyer, representing injured plaintiffs nationwide in product liability and personal injury claims against Monsanto and its parent Bayer AG.
The California plaintiff used Roundup to kill weeds and poison oak on his property for over two dozen years before he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. When the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer called glyphosate a “probable carcinogen,” he filed a claim against Monsanto.
The verdict ended the second phase of the trial. First the jury was asked to deliver a verdict on whether the weedkiller was a substantial factor in causing the plaintiff’s cancer. Then the jury was asked to decide whether Monsanto demonstrated negligence and should be held liable for the man’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer and damages.
About $5 million was awarded for past and future suffering, $200,000 for medical bills, and $75 million in punitive damages. Plaintiffs and your Monsanto cancer lawyer allege that Monsanto continually ignored scientific studies showing the potential toxic health effects of Roundup. The plaintiff and the legal team presented research that Roundup causes a mutation in human cells and that people exposed to Roundup are more likely to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients who used Roundup in the past should contact a Monsanto cancer lawyer to weigh legal options and potentially file an injury claim against the company.
A study released of glyphosate’s effects on the human body found that people exposure to high levels of the chemical have a 41% increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer. The scientific evidence is growing and shows a link between exposures to Roundup and increased risk for cancer and other illnesses.
The findings in the study contradict a prior statement made by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) that found no cancer links to the Roundup weed killer, even as several countries are now considering limiting the use of glyphosate-based herbicides on farms.
