Roundup Weed Killer Cancer Lawsuits
Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup weed killer, is the most widely used herbicide in the world. Now, researchers at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) claim there is a possible link between glyphosate and deadly forms of cancer, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
If you or a loved one were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another type of cancer after regularly using Roundup weed killer or other herbicides containing glyphosate, the attorneys at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough are ready to review your case.

Exposure to Glyphosate and Roundup
Manufactured by the agrochemical giant Monsanto, glyphosate is the key ingredient in a variety of commercial herbicides, most notably the Roundup family of products. This plant-killing chemical is so pervasive in homes and farms around the world that anyone can be exposed to it.
Exposure to Roundup or herbicides containing glyphosate can include:
- Breathing the air near a sprayed area
- Touching sprayed plants
- Drinking from a contaminated water supply
- Eating food grown in treated soil
Whether you live in a city, suburb, farm, or rural area, you are at risk of exposure to glyphosate.
Jury Awards $289 Million to Glyphosate Cancer Victim
In August 2018, a San Francisco jury awarded $289 million in damages to a former school groundskeeper diagnosed with terminal cancer after routine use of Roundup. The victim’s case was the first Roundup cancer case to go to trial and could set a precedent for other plaintiffs who have filed similar lawsuits. Jurors in the case cited Monsanto’s negligence and revealed that a large portion of the award was intended to punish the corporation.
At the time of this landmark award, more than 4,000 claims are pending in state and federal court systems. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we are actively pursuing claims against Monsanto on behalf of injury victims across the country. If you or a loved one developed cancer after using Roundup, our attorneys are here to help you and your family get the compensation you deserve.
Roundup and Glyphosate Health Risks
The safety of glyphosate has not been settled. The manufacturer of Roundup, Monsanto, has questioned the potential health risks associated with glyphosate. But the 2015 study by the IARC—and the recent surge of lawsuits filed by plaintiffs nationwide—have caused government agencies to reexamine the connection between glyphosate and cancer.
At Ferrer, Poirot and Wansbrough, our defective product attorneys are investigating claims of people who are suffering from serious forms of cancer after exposure to Roundup and glyphosate.
