There Are Thousands of Roundup Lawsuits Pending as of 2019
Monsanto’s parent company, Bayer AG, continues to deny that the company’s Roundup herbicide and related glyphosate-based products are harmful, despite both clinical and anecdotal evidence that suggests otherwise. The company appealed several large court awards, including three that U.S. juries awarded to victims.
As of October 2019, there were tens of thousands of cases pending related to Roundup cancer claims. Most of these cases center on a victim who worked with or regularly used Roundup and later developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma, although there are concerns about other cancers, as well.
Many victims received regular exposure to glyphosate through work or personal use. This includes:
- Spraying the fields of a family farm
- Spraying numerous rental properties
- Groundskeepers and landscapers who regularly used these products
- Agricultural workers on large factory farms where the chemicals were used
- Workers in the factory making these products
If you have non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or previously received treatment for the condition, you may want to consider if you ever used Roundup or a similar product. We will not back down from even the toughest cases and may be able to pursue a significant payout on your behalf.

Compensation May Be Available in Your Illinois Roundup Cancer Case
Juries in the initial Roundup cancer cases granted big awards to the plaintiffs. While these awards do not guarantee that everyone who files this type of case will have a similar outcome, it does bode well for others who may try to reach a settlement, file their own case, or join a mass tort.
The value of this type of case varies widely because the severity of non-Hodgkin lymphoma can vary. When we pursue compensation for our clients, we use the evidence we gathered to prove their losses and expenses. Some of the losses we will look to recoup include:
This includes the current and future cost of treatment and care related to your non-Hodgkin lymphoma, including any complications or side effects.
Lost Wages and Benefits
If you cannot work because of your cancer or treatment, you may be eligible to recover your current and future lost wages and related benefits.
Almost any out-of-pocket expenses directly related to your cancer or treatment are recoverable. We can help you identify the most common miscellaneous expenses.
Pain and Suffering Losses
We will pursue compensation for your emotional pain and physical suffering as a part of handling your case. We know how to put a value on these losses and can help you understand any other types of noneconomic losses available to you.
If your loved one passed away from non-Hodgkin lymphoma, you may still be able to take legal action. We may be able to file a wrongful death action on behalf of you and other surviving family members. You could recover economic damages.
