Macon Monsanto Roundup Injury Attorneys
Giving Injured Residents in Macon a Voice
Businesses are liable for injuries caused by a product that presents an unreasonable risk to public safety. Companies who market such products, despite having knowledge of their hazards, should not be allowed to profit while ordinary people are left to deal with the adverse consequences of the business’ wrongful acts.
Justice demands that companies like Monsanto who produce dangerous products such as Roundup be held accountable for their injurious conduct. If you or a loved one has used the weed killer Roundup for 1 year or more, and been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma or B-Cell Lymphoma, you may be entitled to compensation. As a result, you should consult an experienced Monsanto Roundup injury lawyer in Macon about recovering compensation for your losses.

The Dangers of Monsanto Roundup
Roundup is an herbicide that contains the chemical known as glyphosate. According to the World Health Organization, glyphosate is a probable carcinogen that has been connected to incidences of non-Hodgkins lymphoma—a form of cancer that afflicts a body’s white blood cells known as lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are an integral part of the body’s immune system and are responsible for combatting infectious diseases associated with bacterial and viral infections.
Symptoms of non-Hodgkins lymphoma include:
- Night sweats
- Weight loss
- Bone pain
- Swollen lymph nodes
The prevelance of Roundup injury cases led the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to consolidate several Roundup injury lawsuits to the United States Distircut Court for the Northern District of California for pre-trial purposes in 2016.
Last year, Monsanto was sued for personal injuries stemming from exposure to their product, Roundup. The plaintiffs in those cases developed non-Hodgkins lymphoma after repeated and prolonged use of the herbicide. The juries in those cases found Monsanto liable for marketing such an unreasonably dangerous product and hit them with millions of dollars in punitive damages.
