Roundup Weed Killer Lawsuits & Your Rights
Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another type of cancer from the use of Roundup? We want to help!
Monsanto introduced Roundup in the 1970s as a weed killer that was allegedly safe for crops, people, and the environment. Roundup quickly became a success and has since been widely used, both commercially and residentially.
In 2015, the World Health Organization declared glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as a probable carcinogen to humans. California since added glyphosate to its list of cancer-causing substances, and many countries have banned glyphosate.
If you worked with Roundup or any product containing glyphosate, talk to our Jackson Roundup lawsuit attorneys about your right to compensation. We are currently investigating claims involving cancer linked to this product, and we provide a free consultation to help you understand your options.

Health Risks of Roundup
Research conducted by The International Journal of Cancer confirmed that those exposed to Roundup on a regular basis were twice as likely to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the blood. While this cancer is the most commonly contracted disease from those effected by glyphosate, it has also been known to cause other illnesses.
Roundup has been linked to the following illnesses and diseases:
- B-cell lymphoma
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
Individuals who have been exposed to Roundup on a daily basis, such as farm workers, face the highest risk, but anyone exposed to it could be affected. Activities such as mixing the herbicide solution, cleaning it up, spraying it, having it sprayed onto you, breathing in the spray, or eating or drinking something exposed to it can be risky.
Monsanto has denied these claims, even as internal documents have shown they knew the product might be unsafe. Verdicts are being handed down against Monsanto since it appears that they placed their desire for profits before consumer safety.

If you regularly used Roundup to spray your lawn or worked in an industry where you used the weed killer to care for a golf course, farm, park, or garden center, you may have been affected.
Symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma include:
- Swollen lymph nodes (in the neck, armpits, or groin)
- Abdominal or chest pain
- Trouble breathing or coughing
- Fever and night sweats
- Sudden weight loss
If you or a loved one have experienced any of these symptoms and routinely worked with Roundup, see your doctor and talk to an attorney. You could be entitled to financial compensation if your condition was caused by your exposure to Roundup.
