Are you or a loved one suffering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma? Is Roundup Weed Killer a product you have applied continually in your occupation, on your farm or at home? If your answer to these questions is “yes,” then our Roundup lawsuit attorney at Auger & Auger in Asheville is waiting to take your call at (828) 222-7649.
Read on to learn much more about Roundup lawsuits and the link to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Unfortunately, random web searching on this subject reveals there are still a number of sites and postings which claim that Monsanto’s Roundup is “safe as table salt.” Don’t believe it — there is nothing further from the truth!
On June 7, 2018, Bayer finalized a nearly $66 billion purchase of Monsanto after spending 2 years acquiring regulatory approval from the United States and the EU. Less than a year later, in May of 2019, Bayer was ordered to pay $2 billion to a husband and wife in the 3rd major plaintiff triumph in the Monsanto Roundup trials. Though the judge reduced the award to $87 million, Bayer’s shares dropped 2% the same day; having already nosedived nearly 45% since its purchase of Monsanto.
News organizations reported on August 9, 2019, that a settlement of $8 billion is on the horizon — presumptively to resolve current and future lawsuits for plaintiffs with cancer related to their Roundup use. With shareholders hoping to close the book, now is absolutely the time and place to file your claim; and you can do so right here at the Asheville branch of Auger & Auger.
When a manufacturer puts its shareholders ahead of their customers, it’s nothing less than a travesty. Such is the case with Monsanto and its weed killer Roundup, which has been ‘hiding in plain sight’ since first introduced in 1974. Over the course of many decades, continuous demands for cautionary labeling and hazard warnings were thwarted by Monsanto with misleading ads and ghostwritten studies.
In 2018 and 2019 the tables would turn when the following events took place:
The public snapped to attention when the jury in a California Superior Court Monsanto Roundup trial awarded plaintiff Dewayne Johnson $289 million in punitive damages plus $39 million in for the loss of income, pain, and suffering (compensatory damages). The judge later reduced Johnson’s punitive award to $39 million, bringing the total payout to $78 million.
Results of a February 2019 meta-analysis of glyphosate-based herbicides (GBHs) found that exposure increases by 41% the risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. A meta-analysis is performed when multiple studies dealing with the same question have resulted in some degree of error.
Verdicts in 2 more landmark Roundup cancer cases in February and May of 2019 would result in awards of $80 million and $87 million, respectively. The 2nd case brought into evidence actual documentation of Monsanto’s crafted ‘scientific data.’ After the 3rd successful judgment for the Pilliod couple, everything would stop in its tracks while Bayer pondered its fate.
