Roundup® linked to cancer: victims may be entitled to compensation
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.
Third Jury Verdict: $2.055 Billion Awarded
On May 13, 2019, a California jury awarded a massive $2.055 billion verdict in the latest Roundup cancer lawsuit. The damages were awarded to plaintiffs Alva and Alberta Pilliod, who were both diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma after using Roundup weed killer around their residential properties for over 30 years.
Second Jury Verdict: $80 Million Awarded
Monsanto ordered to pay over $80 million in Roundup cancer verdict
On March 27, 2019, a federal jury awarded more than $80 million to a California man who claimed his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was caused by the popular weed killer Roundup, marking the end of his month-long, two-part trial.
The jury ordered Monsanto to pay 70-year-old plaintiff Edwin Hardeman:
- More than $200,000 in economic damages
- Around $5 million in future and past non-economic damages
- $75 million in punitive damages meant to punish the company for its actions
First Jury Verdict in Roundup Cancer Claim
$289 million jury verdict confirms claims of cancer linked to Roundup
A former groundskeeper was awarded $289 million last year after a jury found Roundup had caused his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. A judge later reduced the total award to $78 million.
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.
