Roundup® Cancer Lawsuits
Maine & New Hampshire Roundup Lawsuit Attorneys
Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides in the world, but
recent findings have found potential links between the chemical and deadly
forms of cancer. Because glyphosate is also the active ingredient in the
popular Roundup® weed killer, those findings have also led to lawsuits
filed by victims diagnosed with cancer due regular use of Roundup and
other herbicides containing glyphosate.
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer – including
non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – after regular use of or exposure
to Roundup, you may have the right to seek justice and compensation by

Roundup, Glyphosate Exposure & Cancer
Roundup is manufactured by the global agribusiness Monsanto, which although
recently acquired by Bayer, has held an infamous legacy for its dangerous
products and claims that it often concealed the risks they posed. As a
household name, Roundup has been used by millions of Americans. However,
it poses the greatest risks to those who regularly work with the product, including
- Agricultural Workers
While glyphosate is classified as a probable carcinogen by the International
Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and has been linked to various forms
of cancer, researchers most closely associate Roundup exposure to non-Hodgkin’s
lymphoma. In fact, the disease was the basis of a recent Roundup lawsuit
filed by a former school groundskeeper who was diagnosed with terminal
non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after regularly using Roundup on school grounds.
As the first Roundup cancer case to be litigated, it set a significant
precedent by awarding $289 million in damages to the victim.
At the time of the landmark ruling, there were thousands of pending Roundup
lawsuits pending in state and federal courts. Experts expect those numbers to grow.
Your Rights as a Victim
Victims diagnosed with cancer following regular use of Roundup, as well
as families who have lost loved ones, may have the right to pursue a Roundup
cancer lawsuit against Monsanto. These civil lawsuits are intended to
show how Monsanto’s negligence and unsavory practices placed consumers
at risk of suffering severe and life-changing harm, and hold the corporation
liable for resulting damages, which may include:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish and emotional suffering
- Medical expenses associated with treatment
- Lost wages and lost future earnings
- Grief and loss of emotional support
- Lost financial support
- Burial and funeral expenses
While the civil justice system provides the pathways through which victims
and families can fight back against powerful corporations, compensation
is never guaranteed. That’s especially true when a corporation is
intent on protecting is bottom line, defending against claims, and paying
victims as little as possible. At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., we work
to level the playing field between our clients and corporate powers that
prioritize profits over people, and fight for the financial recoveries
