Like many in Blue Mountain, you used Roundup to control the weeds on your lawn. You stopped using it as soon as you saw the reports coming out in the news about its potential dangers. At the time, you thought no more about it, as you had never suffered the skin rashes, dizziness or breathlessness that some people reported.
Then last month, your wife was diagnosed with cancer. You said maybe it is Roundup related. She brushed the idea away, telling you not to be silly, that it was you who used to spray the weedkiller on the garden, not she, and that cancer is just one of those things that happen.
You do not need to have been the person spraying Roundup to be affected by it. If your wife used to sit on the lawn, reading a book while you walked around spraying, it could be the reason for her health issues.
The first person to take Monsanto to trial over the weedkiller is due back in court in June. He won the initial case, but Monsanto appealed and got the amount reduced. They want it reduced further, and he wants the initial amount reinstated, so they are returning to court to battle it out once more.
You know there are going to be a lot of medical bills because of your wife’s cancer. You have nothing to lose by visiting your local Blue Mountain law office and getting an opinion. They can help you determine whether you may be able to file a claim against Monsanto.
