Roundup Cancer

THE CHEMICAL GLYPHOSATE

The chemical glyphosate is the most commonly used herbicide around the globe.  Glyphosate is the main chemical found in the weed killer Roundup, and other commercial weed killers commonly used in the United States.  The chemical widely used across the U.S. and its presence is found in both agriculture farms to residential households.  Because glyphosate is used by the country's food producers, the chemical has been found in our food supply and water.  There are many ways a person can be exposed to glyphosate  and its effects widespread.  In fact, studies have shown that some type of glyphosate residue has been found in  93% of Americans.  

Research has shown that glyphosate is carcinogenic to humans, and can cause cancer.  The World Health Organization (WHO) listed glyphosate as a "probable human carcinogen."  The chemical has also been listed in the state of California as a cancer-causing chemical.   Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to glyphosate  increased the risk of developing cancer, such as Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, leukemia, brain cancer, and other cancers.    

THE WEED KILLER ROUNDUP

The weed killer Roundup has been produced by the Monsanto company since 1974.  Monsanto consistently marketed the product by claiming that it is a safe, biodegradable and environmentally friendly herbicide.   In the over 40 years since Roundup was first introduced, use of the product has grown exponentially to both commercial and residential use.  In fact, Roundup is used on farms worldwide.  Monsanto even developed genetically engineered crops to be resistant to Roundup.

LAWSUITS AGAINST MONSANTO

Monsanto has been charged with misleading the public of the safety of Roundup and hiding the dangers of glyphosate use.  Monsanto is now facing millions in dollars in damages for claims of cancer caused by their product.  In fact, thousands of lawsuits have been filed to date against Monsanto for injuries related to the use of Roundup.  Many of the claimants and injured victims are agricultural workers exposed to the chemical on the job.  Other claimants can include groundskeepers of golf courses or other facilities where the weed killer was commonly used.  Exposure to the chemical can occur not just in the workplace, but also at home or even through environmental means.  Children are also at risk of developing cancer from exposure to glyphosate.  

Monsanto and the chemical companies have fought the claims brought against them arguing that their product Roundup did not cause the cancer that the victim is claiming.  In fact, causation is the main defense the company will try to use against a claimant.  Successfully navigating a claim against a large corporation can be very complex, costly and time-consuming.  Having an experienced attorney on your side can help you do so successfully.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I was in a head-on collision last year that put me in a wheelchair with a fractured femur. I needed an attorney and my cousin recommended this firm because he had used Briant Mildenhall for his accident. I was glad I called Briant because he always did what he said he would do and kept me informed. We settled with the insurance company and I'm happy with the result. If someone I know needs an attorney, I will tell them to call Briant because he will get the job done. Michael G.
★★★★★
After a head–on collision I had extremely serious injuries to my back and neck, and some internal injuries. I was airlifted to the hospital and started a huge amount of medical expenses accumulating. I hired a lawyer recommended by a friend but I was not satisfied. My cousin told me about this firm so I talked to Briant Mildenhall about handling the case. I was at ease from the get–go. Briant kept me informed all the way through, was always reassuring and did everything he said he would do. He helped us get the money we needed to get the treatment we needed. Briant was fantastic! Ronda W. (Car Accident)
★★★★★
I was in a car accident that was complicated from the start. I looked on the internet and called a few different lawyers but they turned me down after they heard my story. When I called this firm Lyn Dodson asked me to talk to her in person. I met with Lyn and Rob Katz and after hearing my story they were confident I had a case. They vigorously pursued my case and over time we built a trusting relationship. Lyn even took time to help me with the traffic issues and other aspects of the case. They were always on my side and talked to me about the advantages and disadvantages of my options... Robert W. (Car Accident)
★★★★★
After my car accident, I was looking for an attorney and came across the name Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall LLC. My intuition told me to call. I called in and Briant Mildenhall talked to me. He was very clear and honest about my options. As the case went forward, Briant and the staff at the law office always answered my questions right away. I was very confident in Briant's legal ability. He kept me informed every step of the way. I would recommend Mr. Mildenhall and the firm to anyone who needs an attorney. Antonio J. (Car Accident)
★★★★★
I would recommend the law firm of Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall LLC. Lyn Dodson was my attorney after my auto accident. I had confidence in her legal abilities and experience. She did a very good job for me. She was always there to answer the many questions I asked. The firm is very professional. Lyn always gave you her undivided attention. The firm, especially Lyn, worked with you like a long time friend. Joe B. (Auto Accident)

I am 100% satisfied. I called Rob the day after the accident. Everything he said that would happen did, every step of the way. He went beyond what we needed him to do. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer. Steve H.

Robert Katz isn't your average personal injury lawyer. He has specialized knowledge and experience that the others don't. Timothy W. (Trucking Accident)
★★★★★
I have nothing but good and positive things to say about Rob. One of the unique things about my case was that I was involved in a bicycle accident with another biker. He took an unorthodox case between two bicycle riders and he could see the logic and liability in it. I was very happy with the result. Rodney H. (Bicycle Accident)
★★★★★
We just loved him to death. He acted like he cared about us, not just our case. He kept us posted on everything. He even called us on Sundays to update us. My case involved a rear-end collision where I had herniated disks and I had had a prior back injury. Complicated as it was, we were very happy with the outcome. Kathy H. (Car accident)
★★★★★
Throughout the course of my case, Mr. Katz kept me informed about its status, returned my telephone calls and was very attentive to my needs and concerns. Simply put, he cared not just about my case, but about me. Joseph B.
★★★★★
I was, and still am, extremely satisfied with Rob's work and with the outcome of my case. Rob strives to be there for his clients, and I was no exception...I would happily recommend Rob to anyone who is seeking legal assistance after suffering a severe injury. Joey E.
