The first Roundup® lawsuit to go to trial resulted in a $289 million verdict for a former groundskeeper.
Courts throughout the United States have begun to recognize a right to financial
compensation for serious
medical conditions arising from the use of glyphosate-based weed killers.
Thousands upon thousands of people
have used glyphosate products like Roundup®, whether at home or at work, and
whether for lawns, gardens,
crops, weeds in industrial areas, or other uses.
People who developed cancer after years of significant use of herbicides like Roundup® can have viable legal claims. Family members of those who have passed away from cancer after such use may have claims, too.
Plaintiffs in cases across the country have established that their exposure to
glyphosate from extended
use of weed killers caused cancer, most notably non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Contacting a lawyer as soon as reasonably possible after a diagnosis possibly tied to glyphosate can be critical to protecting the right to file a claim, as time limits can come into play.
A lawyer who has handled cases like yours will be able to inform you about the legal process and potential case timeline. Most civil cases settle before going to trial, but an experienced attorney will be able to explain the possible outcomes to the specific lawsuit that you might bring.
Any lawyer you decide to hire will want to collect as much information about
your case as you can offer.
Medical records will be high on the list.
In discussing your case, the lawyer will probably explain that you will not owe anything for representation if there isn’t a settlement or trial verdict in your favor. In other words, any payment for the attorney will come out of and be determined by the amount you ultimately receive.
