Personal injury accidents happen every day — and they’re not always between two individuals. If you’ve suffered an injury due to the negligence of a company, government agency, or other entity, you may be lawfully entitled to compensation.
What to Know About Agricultural Mass Torts Cases
Large agricultural companies like Monsanto, ConAgra, and Bayer CropScience often make decisions that impact small farmers. These decisions sometimes result in serious health and financial consequences and can even threaten your livelihood. In these cases, you may have grounds for legal action to recover damages. Some examples include:
Paraquat Parkinson’s Lawsuits: This commonly used chemical herbicide has serious consequences. According to the National Institute of Health, exposed individuals were 2.5 times more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease, a progressive nervous system disorder that affects motor function. The toxic chemical has even been banned in 32 countries‚ including the very country where it’s manufactured.
Roundup Lawsuits: It’s the most common weed killer on the market, and according to the World Health Organization it’s also a probable carcinogen for humans. Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, was found to cause DNA and chromosomal damage in human cells, which can lead to various types of cancer. Since then, it has been linked to thousands of cases of farmers, landscapers, and even home gardeners who have been diagnosed with various types of cancer.
Both of these cases — and many more like them — leave innocent people like you unfairly suffering. If you’ve been injured because of the negligence of an agricultural company, it is in your best interest to partner with an agricultural mass tort lawyer who can hold the responsible party accountable and recover the compensation you deserve.
