Is Bayer Off The Hook In The RoundUp Cases?

When you buy a product for yourself or your family to use, it should never cause you harm. However, when you need a Los Angeles product liability attorney, you can count on the team at JML Law to be by your side. We understand that faulty products affect millions of people each year. One recent case highlights just how complex these incidents can get. Today, we want to talk about Bayer and their product RoundUp. How has a recent decision changed these cases?

What Is Going On With The Monsanto Roundup Cases?

You may remember that Bayer has been at the center of attention with concerns to its weed killer RoundUp. It is alleged that the product can cause cancer due to exposure to a chemical it uses called glyphosate. This chemical has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In 2015, the World Health Organization said that glyphosate was a “probable carcinogen” in humans.

Those most likely to suffer from cancer due to RoundUp use are those who regularly use the product over long periods of time. This can include:

  • Agricultural workers
  • Groundskeepers
  • Parks and recreation staff
  • Public works department employees

The three cases that have been one so far are the tip of the iceberg, and Bayer knows it. However, they are happy that a judge cut one of the verdicts against them by $55 million. The original trial had awarded $80 million to a California man after a jury agreed that his 26 years of RoundUp use caused his cancer. In that case, the judge said that the trial showed “Monsanto not really caring whether its product causes cancer.”

While Bayer fought for the judge to overturn the verdict, they consider this a step in the right direction. They maintain that RoundUp is safe to use. This can shows that, even when all the evidence points towards a product being defective or harmful, big companies will fight against the consumer every time.

Faulty products make it to the market all the time, and consumers are left with few options in the event an injury or illness occurs. However, a skilled Los Angeles product liability attorney can take a case, investigate the product, and work to secure the compensation a person needs.
