Morgantown Product Liability Attorney Assists Victims Affected by Roundup 

West Virginia firm seeks compensation for people harmed by the popular weed-killer

Nearly anyone with a lawn is familiar with struggles against weeds. To combat unwanted vegetation, millions of American individuals and businesses have used Roundup herbicide, now made by Bayer. In the early 1970s, Roundup was the trade name used by Monsanto for the weed-killing molecule it developed, known as glyphosate. Unfortunately, while the effectiveness of glyphosate made Roundup a very popular brand, some studies show a link between the substance and an increased incidence of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of cancer affecting the blood cells. If you or someone you love contracted this potentially deadly disease following use of this weed killer, Mountaineer Injury Law Group can advise if you might be entitled to compensation. From offices in Morgantown and Martinsburg, my firm represents clients throughout West Virginia in Roundup claims and other mass tort actions involving widespread harm caused by dangerous products.

What is Roundup?

Now a subsidiary of Bayer, Monsanto promoted Roundup as a safe, effective herbicide to both consumers and businesses. Though several countries have prohibited the use of the product, it is allowed here and the federal government even prohibits states from requiring a label describing Roundup’s cancer-causing potential. Bayer is phasing out the use of glyphosate in residential weed-killers, but for many, the damage has already been done, resulting in billions of dollars paid to plaintiffs. As a seasoned personal injury and product liability litigator, I will evaluate the facts in your case and counsel you regarding the likelihood of a successful Roundup claim.

Links between glyphosate and cancer

Glyphosate is so effective as an herbicide because it inhibits an enzyme that plants need to grow. Without this enzyme, a weed or other type of vegetation usually dies within a few weeks. While there is disagreement about the effect of glyphosate on the human body, a University of Washington study identified a 41 percent increase in non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in subjects exposed to the substance. The connection might be due to damage that glyphosate does to the DNA of blood cells. If you or a family member contracted any form of lymphoma and you believe exposure to Roundup might have been the cause, I am an experienced mass tort attorney who will works with epidemiologists and other experts to determine whether a link exists.

Were you affected by exposure to Roundup?

There are various symptoms associated with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, such as swollen lymph nodes in your neck, underarms or groin area. Swelling in the abdomen, chest pain, persistent fatigue and trouble breathing could also indicate a blood cell illness. Do not hesitate to see a doctor if you are not feeling well and make sure you document what you’re told at every appointment, as well as each symptom you experience. My firm will collect all of the necessary information to support your claim for compensation that addresses your healthcare costs, lost income, pain and suffering and other forms of harm possibly traceable to Roundup use.
