Law Offices of Gary Green is currently investigating claims against Roundup (glyphosate), a weed and grass killer declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be a “probable human carcinogen.”
Multiple studies have suggested a link between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Other reported complications include:
- birth defects
- kidney disease
- other cancers
Farmers and landscapers may be especially at risk.
Glyphosate, which is the main active ingredient in Roundup and many other products, is the most widely used chemical in agriculture. It has been found in urine, breastmilk, and blood samples, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture doesn’t test for it among the pesticides it monitors in food supplies.
Glyphosate is also used to quicken the drying process on wheat and oats. Other affected crops may include lentils, peas, corn, potatoes, sunflowers, and soybeans.
Monsanto, who in 2015 earned $4.8 billion in Roundup sales alone, is currently being sued for claiming glyphosate isn’t harmful to people or pets.

Law Offices of Gary Green is currently investigating claims against heater-cooler devices, used to warm or cool a patient during certain open heart surgeries. These devices have been linked to a rare bacterial infection caused by nontuberculous mycobacterium (NTM). The most common of these devices is the Stockert 3T, although there are others on the market.
Surgeries that may call for a heater-cooler device include:
Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implant
Heart valve replacement
Pulmonary artery banding
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)
NTM infections are very slow-growing, and it is possible to develop symptoms months or years after surgery. Symptoms of a current NTM infection may include:
These devices use water tanks to control the temperature of heating and cooling blankets placed on the patient. Due to a design flaw, the cleaning, disinfecting, and drying processes of these devices can lead to contaminated water, which can reach the patient and other surfaces when released via the device’s exhaust vent.
FDA reports show that Sorin, the manufacturer of the Stockert 3T, was aware of the potential risk of severe infections as early as 2014, yet failed to implement design changes that would correct this flaw.
NTM infections caused by heater-cooler devices can be severe, so it is important to contact your primary care doctor right away if you notice any of these symptoms following an open-heart surgery.

Law Office of Gary Green is investigating claims involving rollaway incidents occurring in newer model Jeep Cherokee and other Dodge vehicles.
It has been alleged that these Chrysler vehicles have been designed with a faulty electronic rotary shifter that allows the vehicle to begin rolling after being placed into the parked position.
Complainants claim that the faulty rotary shifters have caused dozens of injures and over 121 accidents across the country since 2013.
During December, 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched a new investigation of upwards to 1 million Fiat Chrysler vehicles. This current investigation is focused on Dodge Ram 1500 pickups produced between 2013 to 2016, as well as 2014 to 2016 Dodge Durangos.
The rollaway complaints involving Dodge are similar to those that resulted in the recall of 1.1 million Jeep Grand Cherokees earlier in 2016. Public interest in the defective rotary shifters increased after the death of 27-year-old actor Anton Yelchin, who is best known for his role in the Star Trek movies. Yelchin’s death was caused when his parked Jeep Cherokee suddenly rolled forward and pinned him against the gate of his home.
The critics of the new electronic rotary shifters have claimed that the new shifters are malfunctioning and causing injuries, as well as confusing drivers who are accustomed to the conventional, mechanical method.
The NHTSA investigation into newer model Dodge trucks and SUVs has not been upgraded to a product recall, though the implementation of such investigations is a typical precursor to a formal recall.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a rollaway incident involving a Jeep Grand Cherokee or Chrysler-Dodge vehicle, please call Law Offices of Gary Green at 1-888-4GARYGREEN or email ggreen@gGreen.com.
