ROUNDUP

Roundup Lawsuit


At least 1.8 million tons of Roundup has been used in the United States. Roundup is considered to be one of the world’s most widely used agricultural weed killers. The heavy use of Roundup has put agricultural workers and consumers who used it around their yards and gardens at risk of dangerous side effects. Research and studies have been published that link Roundup to an increased risk of cancer.

Several plaintiffs have filed lawsuits against the product’s manufacturer, claiming Roundup caused them to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you have developed some form of cancer due to exposure to Roundup, you may want to look into filing a lawsuit for financial compensation.

The $10 billion settlement is expected to bring closure to over 75% of the company’s Roundup lawsuits, which include an estimated 125,000 unfiled and filed lawsuits. Victims could receive payments between $5,000 and $250,000, depending on how strong their case is.
    • February 2021 –  Bayer agreed to a $2 billion settlement for future Roundup claims. The settlement will cover victims who have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and were exposed to Roundup before their diagnosis. Victims who were exposed to Roundup and develop cancer in the future also benefit from this settlement.
