Roundup Cancer Lawsuit Settlement Claim Review

The active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup has been linked to an increased risk of lymphoma and leukemia, specifically non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Does Roundup Weed Killer Cause Cancer?

What Is the Average Settlement for Paraquat Lawsuits?

Since 2017, paraquat lawsuits have proceeded through state and federal courts. The claimants in these actions allege that the manufacturers of paraquat did not warn of the risk of Parkinson’s disease from exposure to the herbicide. In the summer of 2021, plaintiffs in California state court paraquat actions settled their claims. The amounts have not been publicly disclosed.

Currently, plaintiffs’ lawyers and the defendants have until March 2022 to complete pretrial discovery. Estimates of average settlements or even anticipated settlements would seem premature at this point.

If you suffer from Parkinson’s disease at the hands of paraquat, you may qualify to participate in multidistrict litigation or otherwise sue for your injuries.

Bay Area couple’s $86 million jury award in Roundup pesticide case stands

California’s highest court rejected on Wednesday a challenge by Monsanto Co.’s to $86.2 million in damages to a couple who developed cancer after spraying the company’s Roundup weed-killer in their yards for three decades.

The state Supreme Court’s denial of review upholds an appeals court’s ruling in favor of Alva and Alberta Pilliod.

The First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco found in a 2-1 ruling in August that Monsanto was at fault for knowingly marketing a product whose active ingredient, glyphosate, could be dangerous.

Monsanto’s parent company, Bayer, said it disagreed with the high court’s decision.
