Roundup Lawsuit in Wilmington, NC
Hundreds of Millions Recovered for Our Clients
Roundup is one of the top weed killers in the world and the most widely used herbicide in the United States, but it has a dirty secret: its active ingredient, glyphosate, is closely linked to cancer. If you or a loved one has been in continuous contact with Roundup and has subsequently been diagnosed with cancer, especially non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, you might be eligible to recover compensation in our class-action lawsuit.
Roundup Lawsuits: A History
Roundup’s claim to fame is its safety and efficacy as a weed killer, and it has become the top herbicide in the United States. Various crops are marketed as “Roundup Ready,” meaning farmers can spray the crop with Roundup to kill the weeds while the crops suffer no harm.
In recent years, glyphosate has been the subject of scrutiny by the World Health Organization (WHO), CNN, NPR, and other public sources. News coverage and a series of successful lawsuits revealed a disturbing fact: glyphosate is closely linked to various forms of cancer, most notably non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). As more instances of NHL have been linked to Roundup, thousands of lawsuits have emerged against Monsanto, the manufacturer of Roundup, and its parent company, Bayer. By the end of October in 2019, about 42,700 lawsuits had been filed.
In 2019, a California couple’s trial, Pilliod v. Monsanto, served as a landmark victory against the makers of glyphosate. In this case, a man and woman in their 70s both developed NHL after using Roundup for decades. At the conclusion of their lawsuit, they were awarded $55 million in compensatory damages and $2 billion in punitive damages. While the final amount of punitive damages is still under review, this case was a sign of justice for victims everywhere.
