A Legal Conversion Center roundup lawsuit intake specialist will qualify potential clients in a timely and efficient manner. We provide a 24/7 legal intake service that can fit your needs and goals. Roundup is one of the world’s most used agricultural weed killers. The glyphosate-based herbicide is used across the United States to control weeds.
Unfortunately, thousands of consumers who have used Roundup have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other types of cancer. Tens of thousands of lawsuits have been filed by consumers who have developed cancer and other illnesses after using, or being exposed to, Roundup.
Estimates suggest there have been more than 125,000 Roundup claims. There are nearly 4,000 claims still pending in Federal Court, and consumers continue to come forward. If you are considering representing clients with Roundup cancer lawsuits, contact the intake experts at Legal Conversion Center.
Why Plaintiffs are Filing Roundup Lawsuits
Research shows that exposure to certain herbicides can increase the risk of cancer. In 2001 and 2009 studies found that consumers exposed to certain levels of glyphosate had a higher chance of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen, meaning it has the potential to cause cancer. The 2015 study was limited to agricultural workers who had used glyphosate-containing herbicides, including Roundup.
Despite growing research showing a link between glyphosate and cancer, Monsanto continued to market Roundup without warning consumers of the potential carcinogenic risks of product use or exposure.
Naturally concerned and angered by Monsanto’s (and now Bayer’s) lack of warning or acknowledging a correlation between glyphosate and cancer, numerous individuals have come forward claiming that they developed cancer after exposure to Roundup. Litigation began in 2018, but there are still thousands of pending cases. Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been awarded to clients who have developed cancer and successfully proved that Roundup and/or glyphosate were the cause.
The first complaint was filed against Monsanto in 2018, which resulted in a verdict of $289 million in favor of the plaintiff who developed cancer after using Roundup as a school groundskeeper. Since then, tens of thousands of claims have been filed, including claims that victims developed:
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- B or T-Cell Lymphoma Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Hairy Cell Lymphoma
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
In addition to cancers, there are many healthcare experts who believe that glyphosate can also contribute to:
- Liver and Kidney Damage
- Birth Defects
- DNA Damage
- Neurological Disorders
- Skin Tumors
- Thyroid Damage
As you can see, there is a massive potential for legal clients looking for recovery from the harmful effects of Roundup and glyphosate. Don’t miss out on the chance to acquire Roundup lawsuit clients – contact LCC for your Roundup intake needs.
What is Roundup Weedkiller?
Roundup is an herbicide that contains the chemical glyphosate. Glyphosate is widely used in agriculture because it is inexpensive and effective at killing weeds and unwanted plants. The product works by attacking EPSP synthase, an enzyme found in plants. Stopping the enzyme will effectively prevent the plants from producing enzymes and growth proteins, which causes them to die.
Roundup was introduced to the consumer market in 1974 by Monsanto. The company has long argued that since only plants contain the EPSP synthase enzyme, that Roundup would only be harmful to the plants. In 2018, amid Roundup lawsuits, Monsanto was bought by Bayer. Now, Bayer has inherited the ongoing legal battles that began years ago.
Roundup Lawsuit Update
Roundup lawsuits have continued to be filed since 2018. A number of verdicts and settlements have been reached. In June 2020, Bayer announced a $10 billion settlement that would resolve most of the remaining Roundup lawsuits against Monsanto, as well as future lawsuits. The settlement negotiations involved 27 law firms across the United States. It is estimated that this settlement could resolve as many as 125,000 filed and unfiled claims.
In February 2021, Bayer agreed to yet another settlement – this one for $2 billion for future Roundup cancer lawsuits. The settlement agrees to cover victims diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma who were exposed to Roundup prior to diagnosis.
