Monsanto Chooses Profits Over Safety
St. Louis-based Monsanto Company has chosen profits over safety when it comes to its Roundup products. Monsanto has made billions of dollars selling the herbicide, including a reported $4.8 billion in fiscal 2015 alone. Choosing profits over potential dangers to public safety, Monsanto keeps selling Roundup products even though their chief active ingredient, glyphosate, has been shown to cause cancer and other Roundup complications.
Indeed, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) describes glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic” to humans, indicating it could cause cancer. Such Roundup cancer can include Hodgkin’s lymphoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, B-cell lymphoma and follicular lymphoma. Any such cancer attributed to Roundup products can be the basis of a Roundup lawsuit. Contact the Willis Law Firm today for a free legal review of your case.
Who Can File a Roundup Lawsuit?
Many of those filing Roundup lawsuits are agricultural workers, for whom sustained exposure to high levels of glyphosate is an occupational hazard they do not deserve. Other persons who may need a Roundup legal action include:
- Farmers and Row Croppers
- Ag Workers
- Nursery employees
- Golf course employees
- Garden center workers
- Parks employees
Yet with alarming levels of glyphosate being found in the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe, any American can be affected by the deadly herbicide Roundup. In fact, Roundup is widely available to almost anyone. Roundup even is sold in handheld atomizers at garden shops, and not just for farms, parks or golf courses.

Roundup Lawsuit Actions
So far, Roundup legal actions have included lawsuits filed in several states, including New York, California, Colorado, Texas and Delaware. Indeed, so-called mass tort lawsuits are being filed regularly against Monsanto. So far, it’s believed that more than 700 Roundup lawsuits have been filed versus Monsanto or its entities to support the legal rights of victims suffering non-Hodgkin lymphoma or other side effects of Monsanto products.
Roundup Causes Cancer
Lawyers filing such Roundup lawsuits cite compelling evidence of a connection between Roundup’s glyphosate chemical and occurrence of NHL, or non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In a Delaware Roundup legal action, plaintiff Joselin Barrera, 24, daughter of migrant farmworkers, asserted that her case of non-Hodgkin lymphoma was associated with exposure to glyphosate. Former migrant farmworker and landscaper Elias de la Garza, who also has NHL, made a comparable claim. Each now resides in Texas. A third plaintiff in that Roundup lawsuit is horticultural employee Judi Fitzgerald of Virginia, who learned in 2012 that she has leukemia, another possible Roundup complication. Such lawsuits clearly claim that Roundup causes cancer.
Monsanto’s False Advertising
Another basis for Roundup lawsuits is false advertising by manufacturer Monsanto. Lawsuits have maintained that Monsanto was aware of potentially harmful Roundup side effects, yet hid this information from the public while continuing to sell and reap profits from the defective product. Lawsuits have held that Monsanto misled the general public, farmers and government agencies about the risks inherent in glyphosate. Sometimes misleading statements are issued on or for Roundup products. Monsanto has stated clearly on packaging that Roundup’s glyphosate “targets an enzyme found in plants, but not in people or pets.”
Injury lawyers say this is not true. Instead, Roundup targets and kills around 300 enzymes found in humans’ “gut” area of the intestines and stomach. This makes humans vulnerable to the weedkiller. Such false advertising has come to light in a class action Roundup lawsuit brought on behalf of victims in the state of California.
How Much Will A Cancer Lawsuit Pay?
As for how much a cancer lawsuit against Monsanto might pay, that depends on each individual’s situation. Some cancers are worse than others and require more treatment. Some treatments last longer than others. Thus, your Roundup cancer claim will be tailored to your own unique situation by the injury lawyer you engage with the Willis law Firm. But regardless of the extent of your claim, the law allows you to seek payments for such injury losses as:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Medical expenses
- Hospital bills
- Lost present to future salary
- Wrongful Death
- Other damages and remedies allowed by law
