Parker Waichman LLP is vigorously pursuing financial compensation for people with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma who regularly worked in contact with Round-Up Weed killer
Whether you work on a farm, in an orchard, or as a landscaper, you could be in danger of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Scientists have linked glyphosate, the active ingredient in the popular weed killer Roundup, to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma when a person has been exposed to large quantities of glyphosate over time. Monsanto, the manufacturer of Roundup, denies that there is a connection and is vigorously defending against numerous lawsuits. These current lawsuits allege that people who came in contact with Roundup, an industrial weed killing chemical compound containing glyphosate, developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The evidence is mounting against Monsanto despite their staunch defense.
National Law firm Parker Waichman LLP is consulting with clients who were exposed to glyphosate when using Roundup on farms, or otherwise for their jobs in large quantities, and are now stricken with cancer. Monsanto is a very powerful and influential international corporation. They have the resources and the means to wage a solid defense. The Roundup cancer attorneys with Parker Waichman LLP have the toughness, determination, and experience you and your family need to recover financial compensation from Monsanto. Parker Waichman’s product liability lawyers have confronted major corporations like Monsanto in numerous cases with tremendous success. To date, Parker Waichman has recovered over $2 billion in financial compensation for their clients. With that demonstrated track record of success, why trust your valuable claim to anyone else?
Connection Between Roundup and Cancer
In 2016, four farmers from Nebraska filed a lawsuit seeking compensatory and punitive damages against Monsanto after doctors diagnosed the four agricultural workers with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The suit claims that Monsanto failed to warn the workers, who were exposed to glyphosate for several years that prolonged exposure could lead to suffering from a potentially life-altering- if not fatal- disease. The farmers also claimed that Monsanto sold a product with a defective design. Additionally, the farmers allege Monsanto was negligent in developing and selling weed killers containing glyphosate, including Roundup.
The farmers set forth a compelling case against Monsanto. They argued that Monsanto has increased production of glyphosate and, as a result, 187 million pounds of the weed killer have been sold. Glyphosate has been discovered in the urine of farmers who work with the chemicals regularly. Glyphosate has even appeared in the urine of people who did not work with the chemical. The farmers allege that glyphosate is in the drinking water, rivers, streams, and groundwater where Roundup has been spread.
Monsanto disagrees. For many years, Monsanto has even claimed that Roundup was as “safe as table salt.” Monsanto points to a study released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that disputes claims that glyphosate is a carcinogen or cancer-causing agent. The EPA recalled that study indicating that it was an internal document and was not intended for public consumption.
However, Monsanto’s claims that Roundup is as safe as table salt and “practically non-toxic” to mammals, birds, and fish goes a long way to proving the farmers’ case. They accuse Monsanto of hiding the possible harm that Roundup might cause them.
These Nebraska farmers were not the only agricultural workers to fall ill from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. A fruit and vegetable farmer from California succumbed to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. His widow then filed a wrongful death action against Monsanto claiming that Roundup caused his death. The farmer used the herbicide on his modest 20-acre farm for about 30 years. He passed away from a rare and aggressive form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Farmers are not safe even in paradise. A husband and wife filed suit against Monsanto after the wife came down with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The married couple owed a Kona coffee farm in Hawaii. Their lawsuit claims that Monsanto hid the true dangers of glyphosate from them and following use of Roundup for a considerable amount of time, developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Monsanto Experiences Difficulties Domestically and Abroad
The California state legislature expressed an interest in protecting their residents from the harm that could arise from using Roundup. California’s environmental protection agency declared its intention to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen. Monsanto filed a lawsuit trying to stop the classification.
Monsanto has experienced problems internationally as well. A department of the World Health Organization, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), declared on March 20, 2015, that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans. The IARC cited studies in the U.S., Canada, and Sweden that agricultural workers who used Roundup fell ill with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Additionally, the IARC cited studies that show lab rats grew cancer cells after exposure to glyphosate.
The IARC called out the EPA on the EPA’s inconsistent findings. The IARC stated that the EPA found glyphosate to be a cancer-causing agent in the 1980s. The EPA reversed their ruling in the early 1990s. Notably, tests show that glyphosate could alter a person’s chromosomes and DNA. The IARC pointed to the results of testing on one small community which showed that glyphosate damaged their cellular material although the group’s exposure to the chemical was limited to nearby spraying. The community had no direct contact with the glyphosate.
The Time to File Your Claim is Limited
Although the effects of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and all of the treatment necessary to survive this insidious disease could last for your entire life, the time for you to file a claim against Monsanto is limited. Most states impose a three (3) year statute of limitations on personal injury and wrongful death claims, but in some states it could be as short as two years from the date of your non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis. The length of time depends on the individual state in which your claim must be filed. It is critical that you speak to an attorney as soon as possible to determine whether you still have time to file a potential claim for your injuries or your loved one’s wrongful death.
