Chicago Roundup Cancer Lawsuit Attorney

Roundup weed killer is one of the most effective and best-selling herbicides in the world today because it uses glyphosate as an active ingredient. However, glyphosate has recently been designated as a probable human carcinogen (cancer-causing substance) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Roundup Weed Killer a “Probable Carcinogen”: World Health Organization

The weed killer Roundup (glyphosate) is a Monsanto herbicide used by farm workers, gardeners, maintenance workers, agricultural workers, and many others as an all-purpose weed killer.

Since Roundup first entered the market in the 1970s, glyphosate exposure has been linked to an increased risk for users developing non-hodgkin’s lymphoma, b-cell lymphoma, hairy cell leukemia, and other forms of cancer.

But according to internal Monsanto emails now known as The Monsanto Papers, Monsanto has known for several decades that Roundup (glyphosate) causes cancer. Rather than informing consumers about the glyphosate cancer risk, Monsanto buried the risks as sales of Roundup continued to skyrocket.

In March of 2015, IARC surveyed the published research on Roundup cancer links and concluded the blockbuster herbicide is a “probable carcinogen.” The cancer agency further concluded that the cancer most associated with exposure to glyphosate is non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Outraged by Monsanto’s deception, more than 100,000 people have made the decision to file lawsuits alleging exposure to Roundup causes non-hodgkin’s lymphoma and other serious side effects.

Settlements in Lawsuits

In the state of California, several lawsuits filed by a Chicago Roundup Cancer Lawyer have found Monsanto liable for non-Hodgkin lymphoma caused by the active ingredient in their Roundup products.

For the first case in August 2018, a California jury awarded a groundskeeper $289 million (the jury verdict was later reduced to $78 million) after a ruling that Roundup caused his cancer and that Monsanto failed to warn consumers of this risk.

In March 2019, a second glyphosate lawsuit was ruled in the plaintiff’s favor as he won $80 million in damages because he had used Roundup on his property.

Recently, a third case was decided on May 13, 2019. A married couple claimed that using the herbicide caused their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma / b cell lymphoma. They were awarded $2 billion in punitive damages and $55 million in compensatory damages.
