Roundup® Lawsuits

The weed killer, Roundup®, contains glyphosate, a weed-killing agent that could potentially be associated with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and other fatal diseases. If you have contracted cancer following exposure to glyphosate, you might be eligible to initiate a Roundup litigation for compensation.

At Brayton Purcell, we are dedicated to advocating for justice for families affected by hazardous products such as Roundup. 

Roundup Lymphoma Legal Action

People who worked with Roundup and got cancer are suing the company for compensation. This includes farmers, gardeners, and landscapers.

Overview of Roundup Litigation

  • Glyphosate, the main component in Roundup, is potentially carcinogenic and may lead to other health problems.
  • Approximately 165,000 plaintiffs have initiated Roundup glyphosate legal actions against Bayer, the company that acquired Monsanto in 2018.
  • A portion of these lawsuits have been amalgamated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL), which, like a class action lawsuit, handles cases with a shared issue.
  • Numerous Roundup allegations have already led to financial compensation, with more cases still awaiting judgement in court.
  • Bayer has disbursed in excess of $11 billion in settlements related to Roundup lawsuits.

Glyphosate Weed Killer Exposure & Cancer

In 2023, Bayer initiated the process of eliminating glyphosate from its domestic lawn and gardening products in response to thousands of lawsuits related to Roundup lymphoma and Roundup blood cancer.

Glyphosate-containing Roundup products continue to be accessible to farmers and retailers.

When weeds develop resistance to Roundup, many agricultural workers resort to herbicides that incorporate paraquat. However, exposure to paraquat could potentially increase the risk of Parkinson's disease.

Who Is Eligible for Roundup Lawsuit Compensation?

If you or a family member has:

  • Been exposed to the widely used herbicide, Roundup
  • Been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or any other cancer linked to exposure

You might qualify to initiate a Roundup lawsuit for damages.

Even if your family member has succumbed to cancer attributed to Roundup, you might still have the opportunity to lodge a wrongful death lawsuit to pursue justice for them.

At Brayton Purcell, we offer a complimentary consultation to ascertain your eligibility for a Roundup lawsuit and provide answers to any legal queries you might have.

Update on Roundup Settlements & Verdicts

As of January 2024, around 165,000 lawsuits related to Roundup have been lodged. Bayer and Monsanto shelled out close to $11 billion in 2020 to resolve a fraction of these lawsuits, thereby providing numerous families with the necessary compensation for care.

From 2018 onwards, a number of Roundup lawsuits have been taken to court. Bayer and Monsanto have triumphed in 10 court trial verdicts, while the remaining eight trial verdicts have been won by the plaintiffs up to this point.

Previous Roundup lawsuit verdicts include:

  • $1.56 billion awarded to three patients suffering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • $175 million granted to a man who contracted cancer after Roundup usage
  • $2 billion allocated to a cancer-stricken couple
  • $332 million given to a 51-year-old diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • $1.25 million awarded to a man who lodged a Roundup lymphoma lawsuit
  • $20.5 million for a groundskeeper exposed to Roundup in his job
  • $3.5 million to a woman who developed cancer following Roundup exposure

Regrettably, Bayer has delayed these potential compensations over several years by submitting motions to reverse the verdicts, subjecting the victims to protracted legal proceedings.
