Dublin Monsanto Roundup Litigation & MDL Lawyer
Roundup is a highly popular weed killer. The herbicide, developed in 1974 by Monsanto Company, is now used all over the world. It is marketed for residential use on homeowners’ lawns and gardens as well as for commercial use on parks and playgrounds.
Roundup’s main ingredient is glyphosate. In 2013, a study was published that suggested that glyphosate could cause cancer. In 2015, a report from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) found glyphosate to be “probably carcinogenic.” It was found to cause cancer in lab tests on animals as well as damage to DNA in human cells. After this report was published, consumers affected by Roundup exposure and use began to file product liability lawsuits against Monsanto.
Numerous claims have now been filed against the company. The Roundup claims have been consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL), which saves time, court costs, and lawyer’s fees by centralizing pretrial activities for multiple cases. This helps federal courts efficiently manage all these related cases, which have been filed in different jurisdictions.
As of October 2022, Monsanto has reached settlement agreements in nearly 100,000 Roundup lawsuits, paying out close to $11 billion to victims. However, these settlements account for just 80% of all pending Roundup claims. There are still as many as 30,000 active Roundup lawsuits pending in various courts.
New Roundup claims are filed all the time. If you have suffered from cancer or other diseases due to Roundup exposure, it’s not too late to file a lawsuit. Contact an experienced Dublin Monsanto Roundup litigation and MDL lawyer from Oliver Law Office today to learn more.
Complications From Roundup
Many Roundup users claim that they suffered from health issues after exposure. Getting Roundup on your skin could lead to skin irritation. If you then touch your eyes, you may suffer from eye irritation as well.
If you breathe in Roundup during use, you could suffer from nose and throat irritation. Swallowing Roundup can lead to increased saliva, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and mouth and throat burns.
Roundup has also been associated with the following:
- Many people have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after using the weed killer for years. However, even though glyphosate is classified as a probable carcinogen for humans, others claim that it does not pose a risk to humans.
- Liver and kidney damage. Studies show that cows eating a diet of soybeans with high levels of glyphosate had an increased risk of liver and kidney damage. This may be true for humans as well.
- Increased risk for pregnant women and children. There is concern that pregnant women and children may have higher risks because they are more susceptible to carcinogens.
