Roundup®, one of the most widely used weed killers in the world, contains the chemical glyphosate. Exposure to glyphosate has been linked to the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Farmers, landscapers, groundskeepers, and homeowners who regularly use glyphosate-based weed killers like Roundup may be at risk.
$289 million jury verdict confirms claims of cancer linked to Roundup
Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, was recently ordered to pay $289 million to a California man who successfully claimed his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was caused by exposure to the glyphosate-based weed killer.
The landmark lawsuit filed by Dewayne Johnson, a former school groundskeeper, was expedited in light of his declining health condition. After an eight-week trial and almost three days of deliberations, the jury found Monsanto failed to warn consumers of related cancer risks and awarded Johnson the massive verdict.
Johnson’s trial was the first of thousands of cases across the country claiming exposure to Roundup weed killer led to the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
If you or a loved one were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – including subtypes such as B-cell and T-cell lymphomas – after using Roundup weed killer, you may be entitled to compensation.
