Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys is now accepting claims for review to represent you if you’ve been a victim of Monsanto and RoundUp.
NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, US, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Friday, August 10, 2018, a California jury ruled against agriculture business giant Monsanto and their weed-killer product RoundUp. They decided that the product led to the development of terminal cancer in Dewayne Johnson, a former school groundskeeper that used RoundUp as a regular part of his job. As a result, Johnson was awarded $39 million in compensatory and $250 million for punitive damages. Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys is now accepting claims for review to represent you if you’ve been a victim of Monsanto and RoundUp.
A Huge Wake Up Call
For years, users of RoundUp have claimed that ingredients present in the product, especially glyphosate, has led to them developing cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Monsanto has feverently denied these claims. However, a California court disagreed with Monsanto and decided that the company should have placed a warning label on the product to warn potential users of the health risks. According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., "This jury found Monsanto acted with malice and oppression because they knew what they were doing was wrong and doing it with reckless disregard for human life. This should send a strong message to the boardroom of Monsanto."
This is the first lawsuit concerning RoundUp that has made it to trial. Many lawyers believe this case has established a massive precedent for the remaining thousands of cases still pending against Monsanto and RoundUp. According to CNN, more than 800 patients were in the process of suing Monsanto last year, claiming Roundup caused them to develop cancer.
Still, Monsanto stands by the safety RoundUp and is not going down without a fight. Monsanto Vice President Scott Partridge said, “We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product, which has a 40-year history of safe use and continues to be a vital, effective and safe tool for farmers and others."
If you or a loved one developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or other cancers, after using RoundUp, you should not have to go to trial alone. Now is the time to discuss your case and make a plan for your pursuit of the compensation you so rightfully deserve.
Personal injury attorney Mike Brandner says, “Too often, massive companies tend to operate like their actions do not have consequences. My team and I want to assure that anyone who has been hurt or suffered loss at the hands of this product will receive their due justice and compensation. We want aid your fight against this giant corporation.”
