With over 25 years of experience, our legal staff and lawyers are specialized only in Environmental Law and will help you obtain the monetary compensation you are entitled to. Individuals and businesses which opted out of the earlier Syngenta lawsuits can also seek compensation. It is also worthy of note that, if you suffered losses as a consequence of the oversupply or the drop in bushel price, you also have the legal right to file a claim and our resourceful attorneys will eventually obtain financial compensation for you. Other damages for which individuals or businesses which handled the Agrisure Viptera corn strain before September 15, 2013 may take legal action against Syngenta are storage, clean-up, and transport costs.
We are able to process GMO corn claims faster due to the trust fund set up by a federal Kansas judge for Syngenta, as they require no lawsuit. The only documents you need to provide our attorneys with are those which prove you used Syngenta’s GMO corn strain Agrisure Viptera and they will subsequently process and submit your case. We will file a GMO corn claim on your behalf with the trust fund of the liable company and recover maximum compensation for your loss.
In addition to corn farmers and businesses, companies manufacturing the following products also qualify for financial compensation from the settlement if they employed or were affected by the Agrisure Viptera corn strain by Syngenta in any way:
- corn food products, such as starch, oil, cereals, soft drink sweeteners, snack foods, peanut butter, salad dressings, popcorn, taco shells and other flour producs, chewing gum, and hominy grits
- corn bioproducts
- industrial corn products: paint, soap, linoleum, polish, textile finishing, candles, dyes, insulation, wallboard, rubber substitutes, corks, adhesives etc.
- animal feeds: gluten feed and meal, distiller's dried grain, high-oil feed corn for cattle, poultry, swine, and fish etc.
- fermentation corn products and byproducts, such as recyclable plastics, industrial enzymes, fuel octave enhancers, industrial alcohols, fuel oxygenates, and solvents
Because the money in the trust fund which will be set up by Syngenta is limited, it is crucial to contact a lawyer specialized in Environmental Law that knows how to submit your claim successfully and speed up the approval process. Our attorneys already have documentation and research prepared for the GMO corn claims and are successfully helping individuals with claims. The sooner we initiate a GMO corn claim, the larger the amount of money you are eligible for will be. Finally, you should also know that there is a certain timeframe within which you can file a claim with the Syngenta trust fund, hence the importance of acting fast.
Regardless of how complex your case might seem, we are bound to achieve the optimal results for you and hold the wrongdoer accountable for their negligent actions. Once your claim is approved, you will receive the money you qualify for within the first half of 2019. If you worry about spending countless hours at consultations with your attorney, you can rest assured that this will not be a problem, as the legal process requires minimal involvement on your part. Our law firm will carefully attend to most aspects of your case so that you will be able to take care of more important matters in the meantime.
