Roundup Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Lawsuit Settlement. Parker Waichman LLP is filing lawsuits on behalf of people who developed cancer from exposure to the weed killer Roundup. If you regularly used Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer products at home or work, and you have been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, contact our law office today to discuss filing for compensation from the manufacturer of Roundup®.
Roundup Weed Killer Exposure Leads to Cancer
Roundup is a type of herbicide manufactured by Monsanto for home or commercial control of weeds. Glyphosate, the active ingredient found in Roundup, is the most popular weed-killing agent in the world. But Glyphosate exposure can cause Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, a kind of cancer that originates in the white blood cells.
Symptoms of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
People who develop Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma are often undiagnosed for an extended period of time because the symptoms frequently seem like an oncoming cold or flu.
These symptoms can include any of the following:
- Swollen lymph nodes, particularly on the neck
- Sweating and chills
- Weight loss
- A persistent cough or shortness of breath
- Swollen abdomen
- Chest pain or pressure in the chest
- Bruising easily
This cancer also has several subtypes, which include Lymphocytic Lymphoma, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, B-cell Lymphoma, and Hairy Cell Leukemia. Frequent, prolonged exposure to Glyphosate can cause abnormal cells in the lymphatic system to develop and replicate excessively. Diagnosed patients will be treated with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, and many will not survive.
Study Finds Glyphosate is a Probable Carcinogen
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded in 2015 that Glyphosate was a Group 2A agent or probable carcinogen (cancer-causing substance). Shortly after that, California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment added Glyphosate to its state list of known cancer-causing agents. It is quickly becoming indisputable that Glyphosate causes cancer, but Monsanto is still doing everything it can to try to cover up the truth. Our law firm is fighting back on behalf of the people left in the dark.
Roundup Litigation and Settlement News
During our law firm’s investigating these cases, our attorneys uncovered information suggesting that Monsanto has known about the propensity for Roundup to cause cancer for nearly 30 years. We are committed to holding Monsanto accountable for concealing this information and placing innocent consumers at risk of developing deadly injuries.
Roundup Cancer Lawsuits and Multidistrict Litigation (MDL)
Enough Roundup Cancer Lawsuits have been filed that multidistrict litigation has been formed. Multidistrict litigation (MDL) is a consolidation of cases in one federal court where all the cases involve the same product. The Roundup MDL is located in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California and is overseen by District Judge Vincent Chhabria. Judge Chhabria will preside over all pretrial matters, as well as the first trials in the litigation, known as “bellwether trials.”
Roundup Cancer Settlements
Currently, no settlement negotiations have yet taken place in the Roundup litigation, as both sides are still sorting through written documents and conducting depositions of parties and experts. Depending on the outcomes of the initial trials, negotiations could open up, but this is not guaranteed. What we can guarantee is that we are aggressively pursuing the compensation our clients need for their treatments, as well as the mental and emotional effects their cancer diagnoses have had on their lives.
Parker Waichman LLP is seeking the following damages on behalf of our Roundup clients:
- The costs of medical treatment to date and the costs of anticipated future treatment for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma;
- Lost wages and lost income, including lost earning capacity, from time off work because of the side effects of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and required treatments;
- Compensation for physical pain;
- Compensation for mental anguish and suffering;
- Compensation for family members who have lost loved ones to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, including funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of companionship, and lost support because of their loved ones’ deaths;
- Punitive damages, should the circumstances of the litigation and discovered facts about Monsanto reveal that the manufacturer acted egregiously and should be assessed damages that amount to punishment.
While we can never truly replace what you have lost, we will work tirelessly to secure fair compensation and the justice you need. Contact our law offices today if you or a loved one developed Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma that you suspect could be related to Roundup exposure.
