Experienced Lawyers for Roundup and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cases

By Michael Bartlett

Posted on January 14th, 2020

If you believe that your cancer was caused by Roundup, it is very important that you start by having your case reviewed by a lawyer who is experienced in these types of cases and who can understand the specifics of your situation and can determine whether it is worth proceeding or not.

Victims who have been in frequent contact with Roundup or ingested any food that may have been treated by Roundup or other glyphosate-based herbicides are encouraged to contact lawyers to set up initial appointments before the statutes of limitations regarding product liability cases expire. Increasingly more litigation cases are beginning to appear along these lines, and the trend will continue beyond 2019.

Patients suffering from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or chronic lymphatic leukemia as a result of exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides are prime candidates for seeking financial compensation for:

  • past and future pain and suffering as a result of your condition
  • past and future medical expenses associated with your cancer
  • lost wages, salaries or commissions
  • other economic losses and punitive damages, if applicable

Experienced Attorneys Pursuing Best Results for Hundreds of Roundup Victims & Their Family Members

Our concern for people harmed by Roundup exposure extends beyond our legal duties. Roundup injury claims have been successfully resolved throughout the country:

  • $550k as compensation for a landscape maintenance worker diagnosed with diffuse large B cell lymphoma, stage 4, who was in the landscaping field for more than 20 years and used the product Roundup numerous times. He used to mix, loading and applying glyphosate as the main part of his job
  • $200k for a patient with a complication of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with severe anemia, multiple blood transfusions, chemotherapy, and monoclonal antibody infusion who frequently used Roundup Weed Killer in his vegetable garden every year. He used to fill up large gallon tanks with the words Roundup written on the side in plain view and spray the chemicals up into the air
  • $670k as compensation to a 62-year-old former groundskeeper who developed multiple myeloma after being drenched with Monsanto's herbicides, which he sprayed as part of his job. Two years later after the initial diagnosis, he was admitted to the hospital to treat swollen lymph nodes in his neck. The swelling was being caused by anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a rare and invasive type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
  • $360k to a man who as a very painful paradox, during the 30 years avoided most pesticides and herbicides out of concern they could be toxic. Roundup was the only exception to the rule as he strongly believed that the herbicide is more than safe. The 74-year-old victim testified that he used Roundup for over 25 years to control weeds on his 66-acre property before being diagnosed with Follicular lymphoma in 2016
  • $840k as compensation for an elderly couple who both developed lymphoma after years of spraying regularly Monsanto's Roundup weed-killer on their 5 properties thinking it was safe. In 2013, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that has spread to his bones, pelvis, and spine. 4 years later, his wife was also diagnosed with lymphoma. The couple continues to need about $18,000 a month in medication, including chemotherapy, to fight a brain tumor that has been detected twice
  • $440k as compensation for a hairy cell leukemia patient who had to undergo target cell therapy for a year and continues to be monitored. In this case, the cancer was alleged to have been caused by the victim's use of a higher-strength version of Roundup he used on the job for pest control
