The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer declared in July 2015 that glyphosate herbicides are “probably carcinogenic” to humans. The Monsanto Company, which developed glyphosate in the 1970s for use in its Roundup weed killer, currently faces more than 4,000 lawsuits alleging the herbicide caused cancer.

What is Accord Herbicide?
Manufactured by Dow AgroSciences, Accord XRT II is a non-selective broad-spectrum systemic herbicide used to control annual and perennial weeds and woody plants in non-crop areas and industrial sites. Accord is formulated as a water soluble liquid containing surfactant, which means that no additional surfactant is needed when applying the weed killer.

Monsanto Ordered to Pay $289 Million in Landmark Glyphosate Cancer Trial
A California jury in Aug. 2018 found Monsanto liable in a lawsuit filed by a man who claimed the company’s Roundup and other glyphosate weed killers caused his cancer, and ordered the company to pay $289 million in damages. Experts saw the verdict as a litmus test to gauge how future juries are likely to react to the upcoming litigation, as Monsanto still faces approximately 4,000 similar lawsuits alleging Roundup caused cancer.

Can I File an Accord Herbicide Lawsuit?
Only a qualified attorney can determine whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit against Dow AgroSciences, the maker of Accord XRT II herbicide, which is why we are currently offering free case evaluations. Simply fill out the confidential evaluation form below to contact our law firm now.
Most cases involving products liability allege that a product was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain potential health risk. In the case of Accord weed killer, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that Dow failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of cancer.
How Can Filing a Lawsuit Help Me?
By filing a lawsuit against the maker of Accord Herbicide, you may be entitled to collect compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to the treatment of your injury, as well as for damages for pain and suffering. Additionally, filing a lawsuit can help hold the herbicide’s manufacturer accountable for releasing an allegedly defective product into the marketplace, and to discourage other companies from engaging in similar conduct.
