If you lost a loved one due to the popular weed killer Roundup, you may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. Proving their cancer is related to their exposure of Roundup is often challenging and the services of a personal injury lawyer can help.

When these products result in serious illness—or death—our legal team fights for justice and accountability. We do so at no out-of-pocket costs to you. There is no fee unless we secure compensation for you.
Roundup and the Link to Cancer
One of the key ingredients in Roundup that is most dangerous to humans is glyphosate. This chemical kills weeds by blocking plant growth enzymes.
A few careers can expose workers to Roundup. Examples of careers that frequently use Roundup include:
If your loved one unknowingly endured exposure to a harmful chemical when using Roundup as part of their job and developed cancer, we can help you. A connection between their death and the use of Roundup is something lawyers for the manufacturer Monsanto may challenge. Lawyers for the defendant often try to link the cancer to the decedent’s diet or other health factors and steer attention away from the dangerous product.
One key factor that may indicate your loved one’s cancer was, in fact, tied to the weed killer is the type of cancer diagnosis they receive. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is the most common type of cancer associated with the use of Roundup.
The survival rates for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma depend on the stage of the cancer. If caught early, the survival rate is quite high. It is those patients who face a late-stage diagnosis who face a less promising diagnosis.
In addition to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Roundup may cause myeloma and leukemia, two other types of dangerous cancers.
If you lost your loved one to non-Hodgkin’s cancer or another type of cancer, and they worked with the weed killer Roundup, contact our legal team. Upon a free case evaluation, we can decide upon the best course of possible legal action for you.
How Pintas & Mullins Law Firm Can Help You
When there is a possible connection between your loved one and the use of Roundup, the knowledge that their cancer was perhaps preventable is maddening. While no amount of money can replace your loved one, it can help hold the manufacturer accountable for their negligence.
A wrongful death lawsuit typically involves economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are often easier for a jury to understand while noneconomic are generally less cut and dry. For example, medical bills are economic damages, while the loss of companionship is an example of noneconomic damages that do not have a specific price tag.
It is important that you act quickly when it comes to the loss of your loved one. Reviewing the details of your loved one’s illness, death, and work with Roundup takes time. This is why it is imperative that we review your case as soon as possible.
