The manufacturer of this herbicide has come under the radar all across the country and Florida, owing to its active ingredient – glyphosate. Thousands have filed lawsuits seeking damages for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and other types of cancers that are primarily linked to overexposure to glyphosate. If you believe that your cancer diagnosis is because of using RoundUp, you should contact the Florida RoundUp lawsuit team from The Alvarez Law Firm.

Overview of RoundUp

RoundUp has been on the shelves since the 1970s and has since been the most popular herbicide in the US. Glyphosate is the most active and toxic ingredient in RoundUp, which is a nonselective herbicide that kills without discrimination weeds, plants, and crops. In 1996, Monsanto/Bayer overcame the obstacle by creating glyphosate-resistant genetically modified seeds. You could spray an entire farm or garden with RoundUp, and only the unwanted plants or weeds would die. The convenience factor boosted RoundUp’s popularity and Monsanto/Bayer’s stock.  The shocking part is that even after multiple successful lawsuits favoring the plaintiff, Bayer is yet to remove RoundUp from the shelves. This is after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), declared glyphosate to be “probably carcinogenic to humans” in 2015.

How Much is My RoundUp Cancer Lawsuit Worth?

Jury awards worth 2 billion, $289.2 million, and $80 million were awarded to the first three bellwether trials, paving the way for future cases. The amount of compensation depends on the type of cancer you develop, overall exposure to RoundUp, and your losses. 

Cancer Lawsuits Against Monsanto (RoundUp)
