How Do I Know Whether I Am Eligible for a Roundup Claim?

If you or a loved one were using Roundup frequently and later fell sick and got diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, you are eligible to file a Roundup claim.

It is always better to discuss your situation with a Roundup herbicide attorney

An attorney can help you and determine whether you are eligible to claim compensation for the illness caused by Roundup use. However, there are certain factors that can help you decide regarding the Roundup claim.

History of Roundup exposure: If you have been exposed to Roundup on a regular basis, then you are at a greater risk of developing lymphoma. The more you were exposed to the weed killer, the more it increases your chance of developing cancer. This is evident in people who regularly use the Roundup weed killer in their line of employment such as:

  • Farmers
  • Professional gardeners
  • Landscapers
  • Grounds custodians for both private and public entities
  • Herbicide applicators
  • Agriculture field workers

A study conducted in 2008 revealed that getting exposed to Roundup for 10 or more days in a year can double an individual’s risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). According to a 2001 study, using Roundup for more than 2 days in a year with nearly 10 hours of exposure each day can double the risk of developing NHL. Therefore, people who used Roundup in their lawns or backyards may also be exposed to the weed killer around their home.

Your diagnosis: Roundup exposure has been commonly linked to NHL. You need to be suspicious of your lymphoma diagnosis, especially if you do not have any other risk factors that may be associated with this form of cancer.
