Standing Up for Illinois and Missouri Farmers in Roundup Class Action Lawsuits
Cueto Law mass tort attorneys help those battling cancer find justice
The St. Louis region is surrounded by farmland, and almost every acre of those corn and soybean fields has been sprayed at one time or another with Roundup weed killer. While the powerful herbicide was lethal to the weeds that threatened harvest season, farmers, and farmworkers only recently discovered it was dangerous to their health as well.
In 2015, the World Health Organization declared glyphosate, the active chemical in Roundup, a probable carcinogenic, although its manufacturer Monsanto had convinced the public it was safe to use for decades. Without knowing it, agricultural workers put themselves at risk for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma with each and every spray.
Cueto Law’s experienced class action attorneys defend the rights of Missouri and Illinois family farmers, as well as gardeners, landscapers and groundskeepers, who are now battling life-threatening cancers because one of the biggest corporations in the world kept the truth from them. With more than 40,000 Roundup class action claims already filed against Bayer, which recently acquired Monsanto, it’s important to file your suit with a class action lawyer in St. Louis or Belleville now if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or other cancers after exposure to Roundup.
