Roundup Weed Killer Lawyer
Roundup weed killer is highly effective at killing weeds, which led to its rampant use for many years. Due to its popularity, Roundup’s line makes up about half of Monsanto’s yearly revenue. The active ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate. It is the most widely used weed killer in the country. Annually, about 300 million pounds of this ingredient were sprayed on crops across the United States.
However, the World Health Organization (WHO) has classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen, meaning that it may cause cancer. Those who were exposed to this dangerous herbicide may be able to make a claim against Roundup’s manufacturer and obtain compensation for the harm they’ve suffered.

What Are Roundup Weed Killer Cases?
Several Roundup weed killer cases have already been tried across the country. These cases have alleged that Monsanto was aware of the dangerous chemicals in its popular herbicide product but that it prioritized greed over safety.
Rather than alerting the public, plaintiffs alleged that Monsanto misled them by saying that the product had no toxic effect on people or pets when it was properly used. Juries across the nation have punished Monsanto and awarded millions of dollars to claimants who developed cancer or other serious medical conditions after being exposed to this toxic product.

Other possible cancers that may be caused by exposure to the active ingredient in Roundup include:

Because the use of Roundup is so prevalent, anyone could potentially be exposed to its toxic chemicals.
However, some people are at an elevated risk of exposure, including:
- People who work outdoors near crops, including farmers, landscapers, and nursery workers
- People who frequent nurseries, garden centers, and similar locations
- People who made Roundup, sprayed it, or cleaned it up
- People who eat or drink food or water contaminated by Roundup
Our team can review your history and try to determine when exposure may have occurred.
Possible Compensation You Can Recover in a Roundup Lawsuit
You may be able to recover compensation for the harm you’ve suffered because of exposure to Roundup.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to receive compensation for:
- Past and current medical expenses
- Future anticipated medical expenses
- Lost wages and earning capacity
- Current and future pain and suffering
