Holding Manufacturers Liable for Your Damages in Pennsylvania
Roundup is a weed killer used to control weeds and grasses that are undesirable, either for their looks or for their potential to damage neighboring crops. The main chemical at work is glyphosate, which Monsanto has been using for over 40 years in their products. Long-term exposure to this chemical has been linked to a number of cancer forms, and recent investigations have shown that Monsanto has ignored this for decades.
Risks of Long-Term Exposure
The conditions that Roundup has been proven to cause only come about as a result of consistent, heavy, and long-term exposure. Considering that, it is primarily those who work on landscapes, farms, garden centers, and nurseries who are at the highest risks of developing a serious condition.
These conditions include:
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
- Multiple Myeloma
- B-cell Lymphoma
Each of these are potentially deadly conditions that will require years of treatments that are harsh on the body. Anybody in this situation, and the families of anyone in this situation, deserves significant compensation.
Understanding Monsanto’s Responsibility
Monsanto is one of the largest corporations in the world, earning nearly $5 billion in revenue from their Roundup product alone in just the year 2015. The realities of Monsanto’s awareness of the dangers of their products and their deliberate steps made to avoid a recall just to keep profits are staggering.
Recent investigations have shown that Monsanto has:
- Known about the cancer links for over 30 years
- Refused to warn the public about the dangers
- Misrepresented the product as safe and non-toxic to people
- Manipulated data intentionally to show that it is non-toxic
These actions are unconscionable, and certainly will not go unanswered. If you’ve been exposed to Roundup over a long period of time and were recently diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Handler, Henning & Rosenberg wants you to know that restitution is available with the help of our firm.
