How To File A Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit
Currently, there are over 13,000 lawsuits filed in the United States, against Monsanto and its parent corporation Bayer Pharmaceuticals, where the victims allege they were exposed to a probable carcinogen in the weed killer Roundup. These victims were exposed to Roundup and have developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or other types of cancer. It is alleged that prolonged exposure to Roundup pesticide significantly increased risk of developing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or other types of cancer such as a form of B cell or T Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, including its many subtypes such as follicular lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, mantle cell lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and hairy cell leukemia. If you have been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or any of its numerous subtypes after sustained exposure to the Roundup pesticide you could be owed significant compensation.
World Health Organization designation of probable carcinogen
The main ingredient in Roundup that effectively kills all pests is glyphosate. Glyphosate has been linked to many cancers such as non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. In March 2015, the World Health Organization designated this a probable carcinogen. Farmers, employees of garden centers and nurseries, landscapers and people who regularly used Roundup at their homes have been the diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or other types of cancer due to their exposure to Roundup. Exposure can occur by inhaling the chemical while spraying it on crops or plants and/or the mixing or cleanup of the Roundup pesticide.
Damages afforded under the law
If you believe that you developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or another type of cancer due to prolonged exposure to Roundup, you could be entitled to monetary compensation for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Past lost wages and/or loss of future earning capacity
- Wrongful Death benefits to the families of the deceased victims
Do You Need More Information About Monsanto Roundup Lawsuits?
Over the past several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has been mounting in support of the claims made by the victims. A study published in 2015 by The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a branch of the World Health Organization, concluded that there was sufficient evidence to classify glyphosate or Roundup's active ingredient as “probably carcinogenic to humans”. This classification indicates that exposure to Roundup may be linked to an increased risk of developing cancer.
Since then, numerous other studies have come out, with similar conclusions. These findings have caused alarm among many people who are concerned about their health and safety after being exposed to this potential carcinogen.
It is important to note, however, that all these studies are based on observational research and not experimental trials. Therefore, a definite conclusion cannot be made at this time as to whether Roundup is definitively linked to cancer. Until further research is conducted, and more conclusive results are obtained, these findings should only be taken into consideration before using products containing glyphosate.
Despite the lack of concrete evidence linking Roundup to cancer, victims still have the right to seek compensation for their suffering through legal action against Monsanto and Bayer Pharmaceuticals. The thousands of lawsuits currently being filed against the companies represent an effort to hold them accountable for their negligence in making consumers aware of potential health risks associated with the use of Roundup pesticide. It remains to be seen how the legal process will play out, but in the meantime, it is important to remain cognizant of the potential risks and take appropriate steps to protect your health.
Given the increasing evidence linking Roundup's active ingredient, glyphosate, to cancer, all individuals must understand the potential risks associated with its use and make informed decisions about how they choose to handle products containing this chemical. It is also important to consider alternative options when possible and be proactive in taking precautions against developing cancer or other health complications due to exposure to Roundup pesticides.

How Much Will My Monsanto Roundup Case Cost?
The cost of a Monsanto Roundup case can vary greatly depending on the complexity and severity of the case. The cost could range from as little as a few thousand dollars to millions, depending on whether the case goes to trial or is settled out of court. In some cases, attorneys’ fees make up a significant portion of the total costs.
Factors that influence the overall cost of a Monsanto Roundup case include how long it takes for lawyers and experts to review evidence; what kind of legal team is hired; how many witnesses are called upon to testify; and how much research needs to be done to build an effective defense or make an effective claim.
Legal teams may also need assistance from expert witnesses such as toxicologists or epidemiologists to build their cases. In addition, administrative costs including filing fees and court reporter fees may also affect the total cost of a Monsanto Roundup case.
Additionally, the severity of a victim’s illness or injury could also significantly impact the cost of a case. The more serious complications resulting from exposure to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, such as cancer or organ damage, can require extensive testing and medical treatments which can become very costly.
Overall, it is difficult to determine an exact estimate for how much a Monsanto Roundup case will cost since those costs are mainly determined by the individual circumstances of each case.
However, victims need to be aware that legal representation in such cases can be expensive and that they should plan accordingly. It is also important for potential clients to discuss all of the cost implications with their legal team before proceeding with a case so that there are no surprises down the line.
