Monsanto and parent company Bayer AG continue to deny that their Roundup weed killer and other glyphosate-based products can cause non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancers, despite a wealth of evidence indicating otherwise. Several plaintiffs have already taken their cases to court over the cancer risk and walked away with large payouts.
The ongoing Roundup Products Liability Litigation is one of the largest multidistrict litigation (MDL) cases currently underway in the United States, with thousands of people alleging injuries linked to Roundup and its main ingredient, glyphosate. MDLs allow large groups of plaintiffs to share the same evidence and build a case together. This is especially important when facing a large corporation that refuses to admit to wrongdoing.
Glyphosate herbicides first hit the market in 1974 when Monsanto introduced Roundup. Since that time, the products have been used by everyone from commercial farmers to suburban homeowners. While many of those filing lawsuits based on a cancer diagnosis are landscapers, groundskeepers, horticulturists, or people who own large farms, many others used Roundup on their own property or rental properties. Anyone who used the products may be at risk.
If you used Roundup or a similar weed killer containing glyphosate and later received a cancer diagnosis, you may be eligible to file a claim, join the ongoing MDL, or take other action to pursue compensation for your medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
