QUESTION

How Much May a Roundup Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Settlement Provide for Individuals and Families?

29 ADD YOUR COMMENTS

ANSWER

Roundup is used by farmers, landscapers, gardeners and home owners throughout the United States to control weeds. While it is marketed as safe and non-toxic, it is now apparent that Monsanto has withheld important safety information on the link between Roundup and Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, as well as other cancers.

As a result of Monsanto’s failure to provide adequate warnings for consumers, the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are pursuing Roundup settlements for individuals and families of those diagnosed with cancer following regular and consistent exposure.

While we believe the evidence in these cases is strong, and a growing number of lawsuits continue to be filed by individuals nationwide, the Roundup litigation remains in the early stages, and it will likely be several years before any Roundup cases are settled or Monsanto considers making offers to resolve claims.

  • Do You Have a Roundup Case?
  • Step 1 of 2

Saiontz & Kirk, PA, Attorneys & Lawyers, Baltimore, MD

In late 2016, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) established consolidated pretrial proceedings for all Roundup cancer lawsuits filed throughout the federal court system.

Over the coming months, the parties will engage in generic discovery into issues that apply to all cases, including information on the timeline for when Monsanto knew or should have known about the link between Roundup and cancer.

During the coordinated pretrial proceedings, it is likely that a small group of “bellwether” cases will be prepared for early trial dates to help gauge how juries may respond to certain evidence and testimony that is likely to be repeated throughout the litigation.

While the outcomes of these trials would not be binding on other cases, they will provide useful information and may help facilitate Roundup cancer settlements for individuals diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma following regular and consistent exposure to the herbicide.

Factors Considered in Roundup Settlement Negotiations

Negotiations to settle Roundup cases will ultimately be based on an evaluation of what a jury is likely to award in each individual lawsuit, including an assessment of the relative strengths of the claim.

This will take into account the strength of the evidence linking Roundup to the individual plaintiff’s cancer diagnosis, as well as the impact of the disease on their life.

In determining the amount of any damages a plaintiff may be entitled to receive for settling their Roundup case, the following are some of the common factors that a jury may consider, and which will be taken into consideration during negotiations:

  • The extent and duration of the cancer injury from Roundup;
  • The effect that the Roundup cancer diagnosis had on the overall physical and mental health or well-being of the patient;
  • The pain and mental anguish suffered in the past and which will likely be suffered in the future as a result of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other cancers.
  • The amount of any past use or future medical expenses caused by Roundup use;
  • Any lost wages or loss of earning capacity;
  • In a Roundup wrongful death lawsuit, the losses suffered by the surviving family members will be considered, including the loss of love, affection, and companionship.

    I am very sorry to hear about your loss of your sister with this problem, I have recently been diagnosed with the none Hodgkins lymphoma and have been through a few rounds of chemo and it has already lead me to be hospitalized and sent to the mentail ward for a few months because the chemo was making me extremely I’ll and the pain meds just was not doing anything for me and I just wanted to die. For a 38 year old male that was in my prime and now I am disabled and not able to work for the rest of my life has been hitting me hard. I am hoping I can get them to help me out so I can stop living in my vehicle because I just can not hold any jobs due to the illness.

  • Barbara says:

    I grew up on a Farm in Oklahoma. I have used Round up but the fog of spray when the wheat fields and Hayfields were sprayed in my adult years made me very sick. I lived across the road from a large Wheat field from 1997 till 2011. In 2008 I was diagnosed with non hodgkin lymphoma. I was fortunate to catch it early and was treated at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Tulsa Oklahoma. I was Chief of Police in my hometown at that time. I was treated with radiation and lost my sense of taste. I also lost hearing in my right ear. I was never able to work as efficiently on a fulltime bases after having the treatment. Recently I have developed a spot in my left lung. I am on Medicare and can not go back to Cancer Center in Tulsa. I am undecided on what to do now. At 70 the prospect of surgery and cancer treatment is scary.

    While we continue to wait for a resolve our lives hang in the balance its very clear that the product has and continues to cause cancer why have we not been informed of how our cases are going I recognize there is protocol to litigation but while we wait for a resolve the clock is ticking on our lives It seems to me we would have a speedy resolve considering our pain and suffering for a product not properly labeled and still remains on the shelves of stores This is insane Where is the justice??

    My sister was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma 5 years ago, She passed away in June. Her oncologist said it was a very strange thing because mantle cell mostly affects older males. He found it odd that she had it. I know my sister used Round-up because she talked about it and was very meticulous about keeping her yard beautiful. However, I have no proof so cannot do anything with a lawsuit. Very sad because I think Monsanto should have to answer for their greed. After hearing about this connection to lymphoma, I am sure that is what killed my sister who suffered greatly for 5 years along with those who loved her.

  • Thomas says:

    I live in an area where roundup was used extensively on all sides of my country home. The smell would be so strong you had to stay inside .we also used it ourselves to control weeds around our 5 acres
    At the age of 35, about 15 years after first being exposed, I realized I had B cell lymphoma all inside of me. The largest tumor the size of a grapefruit. Through the grace of God and 2 rounds of chemo and 25 radiation treatments. I still have it. Now in the form of follicular lymphoma. I have survived 12 years past predicted. But the toll is unlimited, that it takes on a person. From not being able to have insurance to the uncertainty of the future. But there is hope

    I worked for shepherd elevator for six years we handled and sprayed round up and Glyphomax weed killer all summer long and I had to go see my dr. And at that point my blood was normal then about three years later I was having problems with joint pain and my dr. Done blood tests and called me in and told me I had some kind of cancer so she sent me to a hospital which I spent 4 days there and all kind of tests scared out of my mind and found out I have chronic lymphatic leukemia it is stage one so far but I have to get my blood checked every 6 months to make sure it hasn’t progressed so every six months I get to worry actually everyday it is always on my mind if I will get another chance to see my kids and my grandkids so everyday is a blessing to be alive and see my wonderful wife so yes it has changed my life forever

    I was diagnosed after surgery with 4th stage Mantle Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I used Roundup for many years in my yard. Yes I accidentally got it on my skin and accidentally breathed some of the mist as I sprayed it. I am currently receiving chemo with Retuximab. I am 67 but now between the chemo and pain pills, I can no longer work to supplement my Social Security. My life is pretty much over because those at Monsanto withheld information about their product. Thanks Monsanto. Will I ever receive any compensation and how much. I would like to try to enjoy that settlement rather than just leave it to my family and friends
