Who is most at risk for Roundup cancer?
Research shows that persons who have used glyphosate-based weed killers such as Roundup in the garden, lawn or on the job are most at risk for developing for lymphoma, leukemia, and other forms of Roundup cancer. Persons who live in areas where Roundup is in frequent use also face a risk of developing cancer from the substance.
Aren't most products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff can expect only a small, symbolic settlement?
Roundup lawsuits will not be class action lawsuits, which typically do not bring meaningful compensation to plaintiffs. It is likely that Roundup cancer lawsuits will become multidistrict litigation, a legal procedure reserved for grave cases of injury of damage of large numbers of people. Similar cases, such as anyone harmed by a particular dangerous product, can be processed efficiently, sharing discovery while preserving the details of each case. Compensation is awarded on the basis of each case's details.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
Are there time limits that apply to Roundup cancer lawsuits?
It is true that many states do have product liability lawsuit time limits that apply to Roundup claims. In most cases, persons seeking to file a Roundup lawsuit against Monsanto will fall within those time limits if they contact a lawyer in the near future.
