What Type of Compensation Can I Expect from a Roundup Claim?

Following a Roundup claim, you are entitled to receive compensation for your medical expenses, your lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering.

If you have been diagnosed with NHL cancer due to Roundup exposure, you are eligible for compensation

The more you have been exposed to Roundup, the more it may increase your risk of cancer. Those who were exposed to Roundup weed killer on a regular basis due to their line of employment, have much higher than normal exposure to pesticides and herbicides like Roundup. However, you may not necessarily have had to use Roundup personally to be exposed to its carcinogen. For example, if you live in a community that is regularly sprayed with Roundup and you are diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, you also might be eligible for a Roundup claim.

If you are considering pursuing compensation for cancers caused by Roundup, your case must first be evaluated against a number of factors, including:

  • When your diagnosis occurred and if it has been linked to glyphosate
  • Evidence that you actually used one of Monsanto’s glyphosate-based weed killers
  • The extent of your exposure
  • What state you live in and where your exposure occurred

Receiving a diagnosis of cancer, especially after using a product that was claimed to be safe and non-toxic can be devastating and traumatic, not only for the person who has been affected but also for his/her family. Lymphoma associated with Roundup exposure profoundly affects one’s life as it deteriorates health.

Moreover, the anti-cancer treatment may make you feel worse resulting in difficulty to work and support the family. In such situations, paying medical bills may become impossible. Therefore, if you or someone else in your family develops lymphoma after Roundup exposure, you are entitled to claim compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses incurred after being diagnosed with lymphoma
  • Lost income or wages
  • Reducing earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering resulting from lymphoma diagnosis
