Roundup Claims in Cimarron County
Because Roundup, which contains carcinogenic chemical glyphosate, is the most commonly used herbicide in the United States, people could be exposed anywhere. Cimarron County, specifically, is one of the top agricultural counties in Oklahoma, which is already one of the nation’s leading agricultural states, and would appear to be a high-risk area for Roundup.
As a result, Cimarron County residents may be especially susceptible to various illnesses linked to Roundup. The major crops grown in Cimarron County include grains such as wheat, oilseeds, dry beans, dry peas, tobacco, cotton, cottonseed, and various vegetables and potatoes. In 2012, the market value of Cimarron’s crops sold exceeded $65 million.
Weed control is obviously important to Oklahoma’s agricultural economy. Roundup is routinely used in wheat fields to push back the spread of these unwanted plants, even though research has shown that prolonged exposure to the chemical in the product can pose health risks to farmers and others who have frequent contact with it.
Cimarron County has the lowest population density in the state of Oklahoma, but between 2011 and 2015, there was an average of 16 reported cancer diagnoses every year. This number seems modest when compared with the over 19,000 cases every year in the state of Oklahoma. Given the small population of Cimarron County,16 is nonetheless a serious number.
Nearly 20,000 more acres of cotton were planted in the Oklahoma Panhandle in 2018 than in 2017. This would not seem like any cause for alarm, except for the close relationship between Roundup and cotton, promoted by Monsanto. Roundup Ready®️ cotton was introduced to the market in 1997 as a genetically modified cotton that would be able to withstand the strains of Roundup weed killer. Perhaps even more troubling, a new version is being tested called Roundup Ready®️ Flex cotton, which is supposed to have an even higher tolerance for glyphosate. Since more and more people are developing cancer linked to glyphosate exposure, using more of the harmful product poses a direct threat to the health of those who live in Cimarron County, elsewhere in Oklahoma, and across the country.
Cases We Handle
At The Driscoll Firm, P.C., we are equipped to handle any Roundup-related product liability case. Victims of glyphosate exposure are often diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or leukemia, but the chemical’s effects are not limited to these illnesses.
Other conditions research has linked Roundup to include:
- Respiratory illnesses
- Breast cancer
- Celiac disease
- Prostate cancer
People who are most susceptible to developing illnesses from glyphosate exposure are naturally those who are around it most often. In rural Cimarron County, this could be much of the population, but especially farmers, professional landscapers, or many others in the agriculture or horticulture industry who are in direct contact with the chemical every day. That even includes consumers who spray the pesticide in the backyard.
If you believe your illness or cancer could have been caused by Roundup exposure, contact our firm as soon as possible so we can help you obtain the financial compensation you deserve.
Frequently Asked Questions
At The Driscoll Firm, P.C., we are dedicated to aggressively advocating for Roundup users subsequently diagnosed with cancer. With that commitment in mind, we have provided answers to some of the questions commonly raised by our clients.
Is glyphosate the active ingredient in all Roundup products?
Yes. However, different Roundup products contain different levels of glyphosate, meaning some may be more carcinogenic than others. Regardless, with the number of cancer cases developing against Bayer-Monsanto, it is best to avoid them all if possible, or at least reduce contact.
What are the benefits of seeking compensation?
Winning your case means you would be able to receive compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of income caused by having to take time off work, and other losses that you’ve incurred. Long-term treatment protocols mean that medical costs can really add up. In the civil litigation system, it is your right to seek compensation from the company that harmed you.
Can I file a wrongful death claim if a loved one has died from exposure to glyphosate?
Wrongful death claims essentially work like personal injury claims, with a representative for the deceased (usually a spouse or a child) filing the lawsuit on behalf of the family member who passed away. If you’ve tragically lost a loved one due to a glyphosate exposure-related illness, we want to help you get justice.
