Roundup is Linked to Cancer in Farmers, Janitors, Gardeners, and Groundskeepers: Here’s Why, and What’s Being Done

Known as the “Gold Standard” in the farming community when it comes to weed killing chemicals, Roundup was developed by Monsanto in the 1970s. Used by both farmers and homeowners in 150+ countries up until several years ago. When scientific study showed evidence that glyphosate (the main ingredient in Monsanto’s flagship product) was directly linked to high instances of of cancer; non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma being the largest culprit, Monsanto was inundated with an avalanche of lawsuits. The current number sits somewhere near 1,000 lawsuits as of April 2019. Personal Injury lawyers with Class Action experience have seen a recent rise in clients who have been diagnosed with terminal cancer after prolonged use of Roundup weed killer.

After a Trucking Accident, the Trucking Company May Be Liable, and Here’s Why!

After a trucking accident in which a victim sustains seriously bodily injury, the first thing that must be done once they’re stabilized, medically, is to consult with an experienced truck accident lawyer. A Personal Injury lawyer with years of trucking accident experience will be able to determine if injuries sustained by a victim entitle them to recover damages. This process can seem confusing in a time of pain and suffering, and it’s important that the chosen lawyer has seen hundreds of previous trucking accidents to verdict successfully. While some lawyers claim they can handle a case as large as that of a truck accident, they’ve never actually done so.

Furthermore, when it comes to a Personal Injury case, clients frequently hear terms they’re unfamiliar with in relation to their claim. The best thing to do when unsure what something means in regard to the specifics of a case, is ask! An experienced lawyer won’t have a problem explaining legal terms in a way a client can better understand. One of these unfamiliar terms for example, is the “legalese” that comes up when lawyers pursue a trucking accident case: Respondeat Superior.
