This historical moment does not end the fight against Monsanto/Bayer AG and our attorneys are committed to getting the justice our clients deserve.
Glyphosate is a chemical compound used in U.S. agriculture for killing unwanted vegetation. RoundUp is one of the world’s most applied weed killers and it contains this chemical. For years people have expressed their concerns regarding the chemical, but the company, Monsanto, has denied those allegations. Monsanto stated that glyphosate is not harmful, however, in the recent lawsuits filed against Monsanto we have learned that it has been restricted and banned in multiple countries.
This herbicide has affected people such as: farmers, landscapers, florists, agriculture workers and others who have used RoundUp extensively. The main concern with glyphosate is its possible link to cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). On the latest verdict, Monsanto is being held liable for failing to include a label warning stating that the product could potentially cause cancer.
Monsanto had to award the plaintiff, Edwin Hardenman $75 million in punitive damages, as well as $5 million for pain and suffering and additional compensation for medical bills.
Many lawsuits are now being filed against Monsanto due to their defective marketing and possible connection to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
