NOVEMBER 1st, 2021: OUR ROUNDUP LAWSUIT CANCER LAWYERS ARE CURRENTLY REVIEWING CLAIMS OF INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER AFTER BEING EXPOSED TO THE WEED KILLER ROUNDUP
ROUNDUP LAWSUIT 2021 UPDATE
As of August 2021, it is estimated that 30,000 individuals still have outstanding claims against Monsanto, a subsidiary of Bayer, claiming the company’s Roundup product caused their cancer. Many of the cases scheduled for trial have been delayed by COVID.
One California trial has begun this month and the attorneys for the Plaintiff allege that regular use and exposure to Monsanto’s Roundup for more than 30 years caused her to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. That jury in that lawsuit has heard expert witness testimony indicating that there are multiple scientific studies that support claims that glyphosate herbicides cause non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancer.
Additionally, on August 16th, 2021 Bayer has sought U.S. Supreme Court review of one of its recent trial losses. So far, Monsanto has lost all three of its Roundup trials and the U.S. Supreme Court appeal is seen as a last ditch effort to stem its losses and limit the success of the remaining similar claims. The appeal seeks to reverse the trial loss in which the Plaintiff’s lawyers presented the jury with internal Monsanto documents which showed the company’s scientists had engaged in secretly ghost-writing scientific papers that the company then used to help convince regulators of product safety and hide the cancer link.
WHO QUALIFIES FOR THE ROUNDUP LAWSUIT?
You may be eligible to file a Roundup lawsuit claim if:
- You or a family member was diagnosed with cancer such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, or leukemia;
- You or your family member have a history of using Roundup at home or work;
- Your claim is filed within your State’s deadline for this type of lawsuit.
Scientific studies show an association between glyphosate and increased cancer risk, including a review published this year that found a 41% higher lifetime risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma for workers using the chemical. The IARC has classified glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen,” while the state of California has added it to its list of cancer-causing substances. To date, each and every time the question has been put before a jury, it has found that Roundup caused plaintiffs’ non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
WHAT IS THE ROUNDUP LAWSUIT DEADLINE?
The deadline to file a Roundup lawsuit varies by State. Each State has a specific statute of limitations for product liability lawsuits. The filing deadline in most states ranges from one to six years for lawsuits involving injuries caused by a defective or dangerous product. You should speak with an experienced products liability lawyer to review your individual situation and your State’s specific state of limitations as it relates to a potential Roundup claim. Definitely do not forego a claim without getting free case analysis from a Roundup lawyer. Waiting too long to bring a Roundup claim could lead to your lawsuit being dismissed, regardless of whether or not Roundup is responsible for your injuries.
Bayer announced that as of July 11, 2019, it was targeted in 18,400 U.S. Roundup cancer lawsuits. That’s a major increase since April when the number of cases stood at 13,400. The company admits it is facing a “challenging environment” that’s affected the company’s value. Bayer’s CEO recently indicated that he would consider a settlement as the caseload rises and share prices drop. Analysts predict that a Roundup settlement could be worth $5 billion to $10 billion.

WHAT TYPE OF CANCER DOES ROUNDUP CAUSE?
Glyphostate is an ingredient found in weed killers and Monsanto’s Roundup product. Exposure to glyphosate has been linked to chromosomal and DNA damage in human cells, as well as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other types of hematopoietic (blood cell-related) cancer. For this reason, more than 25 countries have banned or restricted the use of glyphosate.
The IARC in 2015 announced that the chemical is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” It based its conclusion on tests that showed glyphosate causes DNA and chromosomal damage in human cells, which can lead to cancer.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE TO ROUNDUP?
Exposure to glyphosate weed killers, including Roundup, have been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In some cases, cancer can spread to other parts of the lymphatic system and in other cases spread to other organs in the body. Some signs and symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma may including:
- Painless, swollen lymph nodes in your neck, armpits, or groin
- Abdominal pain or swelling
- Chest pain, coughing or trouble breathing
- Persistent fatigue
- Night sweats
- Unexplained weight loss
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE SETTLEMENT VALUE FOR ROUNDUP LAWSUITS?
Roundup lawsuit settlement values vary widely. Highly publicized jury verdicts include the following:
- $2.055 Billion Monstanto verdict in Pilliod v. Monstanto Company on May 13th, 2019
- $289.2 Million Monsanto verdict in Johnson v. Monsanto Company on August 10th, 2018
- $80 Million Monsanto verdict in Hardeman v. Monsanto Company on March 27th, 2019
It is important to remember that no lawyer can ever guarantee any result when it comes to settlements and verdicts. Not all claimants will receive compensation, and specific Roundup settlement amounts depend on many different factors including the unique facts and circumstances of each case.
According to information reported by the New York Times, individuals who claim that exposure to Roundup caused their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or other type of cancer MAY receive settlements between $5,000 and $250,000. The exact amount of compensation awarded, according to the NYT article, will depend on the strength of the claim against Monsanto and some claimants will not receive any compensation. With the help of a skilled Roundup lawyer, you will be able to improve your chances of a favorable Roundup settlement or jury verdict.
