People most likely to have possible Roundup claims against Monsanto
The length and severity of a person’s Roundup exposure will undoubtedly affect the likelihood that they will develop one of the related cancers, and may have an impact on a plaintiff’s ability to prove the necessary causal link between injury and exposure at trial. The people who are most at risk of suffering a medical condition caused by exposure to Roundup include:
- Landscape Architects
Nevertheless, if the allegations against Monsanto’s Roundup weed-killer are true, anyone could be at risk of injury caused by exposure to Roundup, particularly if it has been ingested as a result of being sprayed on food products eaten on a regular basis.

Common injuries alleged to have been caused by exposure to Roundup
The World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer added the chemical compound glyphosate, which is used in Roundup herbicide, to its list of probable human carcinogens in 2015. Since then, there has been a flood of claims based on this exact link—that the exposure to the herbicide Roundup led to the development of the plaintiff’s particular form of cancer.
Cancers alleged to have been caused by exposure to Roundup include:
- B-cell Lymphoma;
- Multiple Myeloma; and
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Other medical conditions alleged to be associated with exposure to Roundup include weakened immune systems, digestive issues, and impaired cognitive function.
Allegations against Monsanto
The thousands of plaintiffs with claims against Monsanto that are based on their exposure to Roundup may have suffered from the same, or similar, injury, but the specific parameters of their claims can vary widely. For example, claims seeking to recover damages for the personal injuries and medical conditions caused by exposure to Roundup may use any of the following bases:
- Intentional Tort – Claims that Monsanto misled plaintiffs about the safety of Roundup to cause the injuries alleged;
- Negligence – Claims that Monsanto negligently ignored evidence regarding the safety of Roundup and thereby caused the injuries alleged; and
- Strict Product Liability – Claims that Monsanto failed to warn plaintiffs about the dangers of Roundup despite having a specific obligation to do so, thereby causing the injuries alleged.
Other plaintiffs have opted to bring claims against Monsanto that are not based on personal injury claims at all. Rather, these cases accuse Monsanto of unfair and deceptive business practices and are seeking recovery because of Monsanto’s unjust enrichment.
When a company like Monsanto feels under siege, they will hold nothing back when fighting the claims being brought against them. They have infinite resources to spend to defend, delay or derail the claims against them. That is why it is so important for your lawyer to pursue every possible route to recovery.

Indeed, it may be impossible for an unrepresented litigant to succeed in a lawsuit against a corporate giant like Monsanto, and the specific legal complexities brought about by the flood of recent claims, only makes matters worse.
