A judge in California federal court has denied Monsanto Company's request to dismiss a case claiming that the carcinogens in the company's Roundup weed killer led to the complainant's cancer.
The Monsanto case only reinforces manufacturers' responsibility to provide sufficient warnings to consumers when there are any hazards associated with the use of their products. Consumers have the right to be fully informed regarding the risks involved with using a particular product. When manufacturers fail to provide complete disclosure, they can and should be held fully accountable for any harm suffered by consumers.
It can be intimidating to consider taking legal action against a major corporation. They bring in expensive lawyers whose only job is to protect the company's bottom line. With the help of a qualified personal injury attorney, however, you can seek compensation you deserve for your medical care and any other losses you may have suffered. In many cases, you may not even have to pay any upfront legal fees.
Take action to protect your rights
There is no excuse for a company that puts profits ahead of consumer safety. If you have suffered any type of injury or negative health impact from a consumer product that was being used for its intended purpose, you may be able to seek compensation under a product liability claim. Talk to a lawyer, learn more about your rights, and fight back.
