Atkins & Markoff Represents Clients Filing Roundup Suits Against Monsanto

Roundup Lawsuits

Roundup is a popular weed killer used by farmers, gardeners, and homeowners in more than 160 countries, including the United States. Monsanto initially developed Roundup, but Bayer now owns, creates, and distributes the chemical. Roundup is currently the most popular herbicide in the United States, and people around the world use roughly 1.4 billion pounds of Roundup every year.

The active ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate, which has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and several other types of cancer. Because of this link, Monsanto is currently facing thousands of Roundup-related lawsuits across the United States.

If you or someone you love was exposed to Roundup and developed cancer, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against Monsanto and could potentially receive financial compensation. Keep reading to learn more about your rights and find out how the team at Atkins and Markoff can help.
