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


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.

Steps Before Settling Roundup Cancer Claims

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.
