In late 2018, a California jury found Monsanto liable in a lawsuit filed by a man alleging that the company’s glyphosate-containing herbicide, Roundup, caused him to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The company, which was bought out by German multinational conglomerate Bayer, was ordered to pay out $289 million in damages to the groundskeeper, who claimed to have used the product roughly 30 times per year throughout his career.
The lawsuit claims that Monsanto had known for years about the severe risks associated with using their product but failed to inform the public about it – and this isn’t the only lawsuit against the company. The often denounced company is currently facing thousands of cases alleging that their Roundup product has led to cancer and other serious illnesses.
If you are suffering from or have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another form of cancer, and have been frequently exposed to Roundup, you need the expertise of The Driscoll Firm, P.C. to help fight back against this notoriously disreputable company.

Roundup is a commonly used herbicide that contains an ingredient known as glyphosate. This particular chemical has been widely used in numerous herbicide products to kill unwanted plants and weeds on private, public, and commercial properties all throughout the nation, and even internationally.
This product has been sprayed directly on crops throughout America’s farmland for decades. In fact, the product is the most widely used herbicide in the nation.
Shockingly, in 2015, a report drafted by the World Health Organization (WHO), along with several other independent studies conducted by various other agencies, found a link between cancer and glyphosate. WHO’s cancer research division, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, also confirmed a positive association between glyphosate and certain cancers like non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The latter study also found that glyphosate can damage DNA in both humans and animals.
Because of these reports, many other countries have outright banned the usage of the dangerous herbicide from Roundup.
For decades, Monsanto’s Roundup has been a go-to product for individuals involved in the agricultural and floral industries. Many of these workers placed their trust in Monsanto’s product, just to fall victim to its life-threatening side effects.
This dangerous glyphosate-containing herbicide has been commonly used by:
Even individuals (neighbors) living close to commercial farms or properties that frequently used Roundup could be susceptible to damages caused by the herbicide.
Most times, exposure to Roundup occurs in aerosol form, meaning the victims inhaled the substance as it was applied to crops or other plants. It isn’t uncommon, however, that victims also came into contact with the chemical through contaminated food or water, or while cleaning up weed killer chemicals.

They called me and my aging father with updates every few weeks. We were part of a class action – they told us upfront that this can take several years to settle. My father and I both appreciated the personal service we received at the Driscoll Firm. Our settlement was more than we ever hoped for, and my father can live out the rest of his days in comfort – thank you Driscoll Firm!- Ethan T.
My husband and I were skeptical because my mother had already been promised the world by another law firm. She had been severely injured by a prescription she had been taking for 6 years. I’m not gonna lie, the process is LONG – but the Driscoll firm makes good on their claims – everything played out pretty close to what they said, and my mother will never have to worry about paying for medical care again.- Mary W.
The case was handled well and I always felt like I was in good hands. The firm kept me updated as to the status of the case as it went along. I was very content with the outcome of my particular case. Would highly recommend them to handle a legal issue.- Sherri T.
