Did you or someone close to you regularly use Roundup herbicide in agricultural settings or for personal gardening? If this applies to you, you could be eligible for substantial compensation.
Courts have recently found that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, is associated with specific forms of cancer.
Jury Awards $78.5 Million to Plaintiff Diagnosed With Cancer
In 2018, a 46-year-old San Francisco school district groundskeeper who had used Roundup for years was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. After an 8-week trial, a jury found Monsanto liable and initially awarded him $289.2 million, including $250 million in punitive damages, although this was later reduced by the judge to $78.5 million.
Alameda County Jury Awards $2 Billion Verdict
In 2019, a California couple in their 70s who had regularly used Roundup products were diagnosed with different forms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. An Alameda County jury awarded them a staggering $2.055 billion in damages, including $2 billion in punitive damages.
Glyphosate and Cancer
In September 2003, a study of 3,400 Midwest farmworkers published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found higher rates of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma associated with glyphosate exposure. Another research article reviewing over 30 years of data highlighted a “striking increase” in the incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphomas, suggesting that farmers’ low overall mortality rates but high rates of certain cancers could be due to agrochemical exposure.
Lastly, a 2015 report by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a WHO division, classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic,” linking it to cancer in animal lab tests and DNA damage in human cells.
