Can I Sue Monsanto for Roundup-Related Cancer?
Have you been diagnosed with cancer after repeated exposure to toxic levels of the herbicide Roundup? If so, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the manufacturer, Monsanto, to recover compensation for your suffering.
Below, we discuss why you might bring a claim against Monsanto and the damages you’ll be entitled to recover in your lawsuit so you can better prepare for what’s to come.
Why Bring a Claim against Monsanto?
Other individuals who have battled cancer have begun to pursue claims against Monsanto, just like you may be able to. In the 1980s, Monsanto became aware that the primary ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, had the potential to cause cancer when individuals were repeatedly exposed to the product.
Rather than rethink its product’s chemical makeup, Monsanto instead began to market Roundup as being “safer than table salt,” all the while knowing there were definitive links between glyphosate and the onset of certain types of cancers.
Damages You May Be Entitled to Recover
There are several types of cancer that have been linked to glyphosate exposure, but the most common is non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. However, no matter which type of cancer you have been diagnosed with, you are likely to incur mountains of medical expenses when treating your cancer, not to mention the physical pain and overall changes to your life after your cancer diagnosis.
Financial, psychological, and physical damages should all be taken into consideration as your lawyer works to determine just how much you can expect to be awarded when you pursue a lawsuit against Monsanto.
