round-up-weed-killer-cancer-lawyerAs a personal injury attorney helping victims of Roundup weed killer with claims in California, I thought I would provide some useful information on this dangerous product and what victims can do to recover compensation if they or a loved one have been injured by use of this popular and widely used product. Roundup, a popular weedkiller that has been widely used by people in their gardens as well as by farmers, is believed to be linked to certain types of cancer. The weedkiller is manufactured by Monsanto and was first developed in the 1970s. Many people have developed cancer after using this herbicide in their gardens. If you have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, or multiple myeloma and have used a weedkiller that contains glyphosate, you may have legal rights to compensation. The Law Offices of Steven M. Sweat are currently reviewing potential claims on behalf of victims who have developed one of these cancers as well as the families of people who have died after using this herbicide in their gardens or on their lawns.

What is Stryker hip replacement?

In the world of medicine, Stryker Hip Implant was one of those surgical procedures that required no clinical trial due to the fact that it was similar to previous generations of hip prosthetic devices. Because it was such a ground breaking technology, one that seemed ingenious ever since it was tried, it quickly gained popularity in the medical community as remedy to hip dislocation and joint problems compared to previous generations of hardware.

However, over the years post-surgery complications have increased in patients who have undergone this procedure. In its initial years, medical practitioners claimed that Stryker was a not a metal-on-metal hip implant, unlike other older devices. Therefore, it was deemed to be a success. However, the smaller metallic components in this device used at the junction of the joint itself have created so many complications that a significant percentage of patients have experienced chronic pain and serious complications a few months following the the surgery.
