In today’s suburbs maintaining a well-kept lawn has become almost a must. However, many people do not have enough time to spend on their lawns to do this chore. It requires tedious and backbreaking work to pull weeds from around the yard. Thus, people have naturally turned to weed killers to maintain their lawn, and average Americans have been paying the price since.
Weed killer producing companies tout the great effects of their products and the tiny negative impact they have on the environment. These companies fail to mention anything about how these weed killing products can affect the people who use them. These products not only wreak havoc on the health of humans but also on the health of plants and animals.
Livestrong reported that one of the most commonly used herbicides in the United States, 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid), has been linked to kidney and liver damage and even cancer. Many companies still distribute this dangerous chemical to trusting and unaware customers. And this weed killing chemical is not the exception, it is the rule.
Another common chemical in weed killers that causes harmful effects is glyphosate, which is commonly used in Roundup. Almost all herbicides have been linked to forms of cancer or organ damage. To protect the people affected, a weed killer lawsuit is needed.
So how do these chemicals actually affect people? Weed killers, due to their close proximity to water sources and human skin, often infiltrate either drinking water sources or our bloodstreams. Early effects include fatigue, body soreness, dizziness, and lack of coordination.
As long as these corporations are willing to take advantage of customers in search of profit, the legal team at Saunders & Walker will continue to fight for the common American. Our lawyers have a proven track record of results in class action lawsuits involving dangerous drugs and inadequate warnings on products.
Class action lawsuits are often misunderstood and misrepresented. According to the New York Times, class action lawsuits protect the rights of “ordinary Americans.” These unique lawsuits allow large groups of ordinary people to sue huge, and otherwise invincible, corporations.
The New York Times says without class action lawsuits, not many people could afford to bring individual cases against these corporations. The cost of class action lawsuits is quite small and the payouts can be quite large.
The lawyers at Saunders & Walker make sure every customer is taken care of. You are not the only person going through hard times because of the harmful effects of weed killers. There are many other people facing the same problems, and our lawyers are prepared to protect all of you. Combined, your voices are powerful. The Saunders & Walker firm will ensure the corporations hear them through a class action, weed killer lawsuit.
