Cancer Class Action Attorneys Fighting for Roundup Victims
For months, an ongoing conversation surrounding the popular weedkiller, RoundUp and its potential cancer causing chemicals, has been up for debate. However, a verdict issued by a six person jury found that one man’s cancer was the result of using the Bayer product. Currently, the company is facing around 11,200 lawsuits claiming that the product is the cause of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other dangerous cancers.
If you or a loved one have used RoundUp and suffered from non-Hodgkin lymphoma or other cancers, you may have a claim. We want to speak with you. There is no cost to speak with your attorneys about your claim.
A California man, Edwin Hardeman, claimed that he had been using RoundUp regularly to control certain weeds on his property for 26 years. Hardeman developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Soon the court will decide if the company is legally responsible for Hardeman’s cancer, and what he will receive in regards to the damages.
Additionally, six more trials over RoundUp and its links to cancer are due to start this year in federal and state courts. The court ruling over this most recent case could determine the outcome of multiple others.
What do RoundUp Lawsuits Claim?
The active ingredient in RoundUp that is potentially causing non-Hodgkin lymphoma is Glyphosate. In 2015, the ingredient was considered a potential harmful carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a branch of the World Health Organization. Recently, Bayer stated that they were not happy with the outcome of the ruling and are standing by their claim that the glyphosate-based product is not cancer causing.
Hardeman’s case against Bayer is the second to face trial. The first was regarding a school groundskeeper, Dwayne Johnson, who said that he had used the product at least 20 times a year before being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Johnson was awarded $289 million in damages by a jury, but the judge reduced this amount to $78 million.
