A Brief Background on Roundup Litigation
Monsanto first released Roundup in the mid-70s, but it wasn’t until 1996 that sales started to take off. This was due to the company’s new strategy of marketing genetically modified seeds that were resistant to the active ingredient in the herbicide, glyphosate.
This allowed the chemical compound to be used on and around crops, flowers, and ornamental plants without killing them. As a result, plants could continue to thrive while unwanted weeds and other invasive vegetation were eliminated.
In 2018, German pharmaceutical giant Bayer bought Monsanto along with all their problems associated with Roundup and emerging legal issues. The popular weed killer has come under scrutiny in recent years due to its potential links to cancer.
The safety of glyphosate is actively being questioned by members of the scientific and medical communities. Though the results of current studies are conflicted, research from the University of Washington indicated that glyphosate use raises the probability of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma by 41%.
This compelling argument along with a statement by the World Health Organization indicating that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans,” has prompted thousands of Roundup lawsuits around the nation.
What Evidence Do I Need?
To initiate a Roundup weed killer cancer lawsuit against Bayer, you’ll first need to prove that you have been harmed. Evidence of a cancer diagnosis is crucial for participation in a cancer Roundup lawsuit. You’ll also need to provide sufficient evidence of your usage of the product and the existence of a causal relationship.
Some examples of evidence that can be used to prove Roundup use are:
- Proof that your employer has bought Roundup products with corporate funds
- Receipts for work performed in areas where it is likely that workers were exposed to the herbicide Roundup
- Proof of ten or more purchases of the product by a single homeowner
- Used Roundup containers
This potentially dangerous product may have found widespread application across a variety of sectors. Here are some examples of companies and workers who may have been exposed to glyphosate products:
- Farmers, farmhands, agricultural laborers
- Maintenance workers on a lawn
- Workers on a golf course, business district, or major park who were responsible for weeding the area
It is also necessary to speak to a personal injury lawyer with experience handling these types of claims. Several legal avenues may be pursued, and a lawyer can help you decide which is right for you and your situation.
THE ROUNDUP WEED KILLER CANCER LAWSUITS CENTER AROUND NON-HODGKIN’S LYMPHOMA
Most of the people filing lawsuits related to the popular weed killer have a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis or a diagnosis of a related condition. In addition, they sustained regular exposure to Roundup weed killer or glyphosate-based herbicides, usually at work. Plaintiffs in Roundup lawsuits may include:
- Those who have a current non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis and are undergoing treatment
- Those who have a current non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis and do not currently require treatment
- Those who previously received treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Those who lost an immediate family member to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
There are other types of cancers that may fall into this category, and those who have received a diagnosis of the following may also be eligible to make a claim. Subtypes of Non- Hodgkins Lymphoma include:
- Hairy Cell Leukemia
- Lymphocytic Leukemia
- B-Cell Lymphoma
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
If you fall into one of these categories and are wondering if your cancer may be connected to Monsanto Roundup and its active ingredient Glyphosate, contact Zanes Law today. We will evaluate your case for free and explain your options for pursuing financial compensation.
MOST PLAINTIFFS SUFFERED GLYPHOSATE EXPOSURE WHILE WORKING
While some plaintiffs filing Roundup weed killer lawsuits only applied the herbicide to their own lawns, most of those looking to hold the company liable had ongoing exposure to high levels of glyphosate as a part of their job. This includes:
- Farmers who applied the herbicide to their fields
- Landscapers who applied Roundup on lawns and other areas
- Anyone in the agricultural industry who used or handled the chemical
- Residents in agricultural communities
