Roundup is the most used herbicide in the world, used by farmers, landscapers, and homeowners to kill weeds. If you or a loved one have been exposed to Roundup and were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another form of cancer, you may be eligible for compensation to help you pay your medical bills, heal, and move forward. One of our defective products attorneys is ready to help you through a Roundup lawsuit in Cleveland.
Roundup is a popular weed killer used for both commercial and personal use that has dominated the market for over 40 years. The herbicide is manufactured by the agrochemical company Monsanto, a subsidiary of Bayer. Many people have probably used a Roundup product at some point to kill weeds in a yard or garden. The use of Roundup in Cleveland homes and businesses could lead to cancer and justify a lawsuit.
The highly effective weed killer uses glyphosate, a carcinogenic ingredient, to kill plants. Glyphosate is toxic to most plants and grasses and kills plants that it comes into contact with. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) outlined the dangers of glyphosate in a health assessment. Reports show that it can cause serious or fatal illnesses when inhaled or absorbed through the skin. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) and IARC also concluded that there is sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals, and glyphosate also caused DNA and chromosomal damage in human cells. A study from the University of Washington even found that exposure to glyphosate can increase the risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma by 41%.
Many years of scientific research have confirmed the dangers and health risks of Roundup including:
Glyphosate has the highest global production volume of all herbicides, primarily used in agriculture. It has been detected in the air during spraying, in water, and in food. People are primarily exposed through residence near sprayed areas, home use, and diet. If an individual or someone they love in Cleveland has developed cancer as a result of exposure to Roundup’s chemicals, a lawsuit could be possible.
Many symptoms are associated with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but common ones to watch out for are:
These symptoms could indicate dangerous exposure to Roundup and lead to reimbursement through a lawsuit in Cleveland.
Monsanto denied that glyphosate causes cancer and claimed studies show the chemical to be safe for human use. In the first ever Roundup Cancer trial, a plaintiff’s lawyer stated that jurors were able to see internal company documents “proving that Monsanto has known for decades that glyphosate and specifically Roundup could cause cancer.”

That is why we are willing to stand up to Roundup in court and fight for those who are suffering because of their negligence through a lawsuit in Cleveland.

In 2018, Monsanto was ordered to pay $289 million in damages in the first Roundup Cancer trial. Dewayne Johnson was a pest control manager for a California school system. He applied Roundup and Ranger Pro, another glyphosate herbicide product, up to 30 times per year. The jury found that Monsanto and Bayer did not do their due diligence to warn the plaintiff that Roundup could cause cancer. It awarded $39 million in compensatory and $250 million in punitive damages. Since then, Monsanto has already settled over 100,000 lawsuits related to Roundup, paying out almost $11 billion with 30,000 lawsuits still pending.
