Roundup is one of the most common weedkillers. It’s used by farmers, landscapers, nursery workers, and even home gardeners, and it is known for being extremely effective without causing damage to surrounding plants and the environment. Unfortunately, the World Health Organization has declared Roundup a probable carcinogen. In fact, thousands of cases have linked Monsanto’s Roundup to people who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other types of cancer.

Life changes drastically when you or a loved one has developed cancer. If you suspect that Roundup could be to blame for the diagnosis, you’ll need to begin the legal process to seek compensation — but you’ve already got enough to worry about. At the Lopez Law Group, we’re here to help ease your burden. Our Texas personal injury attorneys will champion for your legal rights and build the strongest case possible to hold Monsanto and its parent company, Bayer, accountable, delivering the justice and compensation you and your family deserve.

What to Know About Roundup Lawsuits

Although Monsanto claims its product is one of the safest herbicides on the market, plaintiff attorneys for the Monsanto lawsuits allege that the corporation knew about the link between Roundup usage and cancer for more than 30 years. In fact, litigation documents reveal that Monsanto intentionally hid this information from the public, while marketing the product to be as safe as table salt and virtually non-toxic.

The World Health Organization determined that glyphosate — the main ingredient in Roundup, which is also sprayed on nearly every acre of corn, soybeans, and cotton grown in the US — is most likely carcinogenic to humans. This conclusion found that glyphosate causes DNA and chromosomal damage in human cells, which can lead to various types of cancer, including:

  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Follicular lymphoma
  • Lymphocytic leukemia
  • Mantle cell lymphoma
  • B-cell lymphoma
  • Hairy cell leukemia

As a result of this conclusion, victims of various types of cancer that they believe are a direct result of exposure to Roundup are turning to legal professionals to file claims against Monsanto and Bayer. Recently, a landmark verdict in California determined that Monsanto “acted with a conscious disregard for public safety” in a case involving a school groundskeeper, awarding him sizable damages.

Why Hire a Roundup Case Lawyer to Help with Your Case?

If you’re considering an injury claim for health problems you believe to be linked to Roundup exposure, you’re probably wondering how much your case might be worth. The important thing to remember is that no two claims are the same. The first step is understanding what’s typically covered in a Roundup lawsuit settlement, and that begins with the nature and extent of the losses you’ve suffered, or “damages” in legalese. Here are common categories of damages and how each might affect the value of your Roundup lawsuit:

  • Cost of past and future medical care. This includes all medical treatments — past, present, and future — that you have or will receive for your health problems that are considered to be linked to Roundup exposure.
  • Lost income and diminished earning capacity. If you’ve had to miss work because of your illness, or if it has affected your ability to earn a living, you could be entitled to compensation for income you’ve lost or income you would have earned in the future. 
  • Pain and suffering. Economic losses such as lost income and medical expenses are relatively easy to calculate. But you’ve undoubtedly experienced varying degrees of pain and suffering, especially with the psychological impact of your illness, which isn’t exactly quantifiable. 
  • Duty to mitigate. This refers to the legal obligation of seeking compensation within reasonable limits. Otherwise, the defendant can argue that you didn’t seek medical attention early enough for your health problems related to Roundup usage, which could weaken your case for fair compensation. 

How the Lopez Law Group Can Help 

If you’ve developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or another illness that you believe to be linked to Roundup exposure, your first priority should be focusing on your health and healing — not trying to negotiate with insurance companies.

At the Lopez Law Group, we’re Texas mass tort lawyers who have dedicated our careers to representing the people and businesses that entrust their lives to us. Our experienced attorneys will go toe-to-toe with insurance companies and large corporations to recover the fair compensation individuals like you deserve. When you partner with our skilled agricultural mass torts lawyer, you can expect:

  • Detailed, one-on-one communication. We know the legal process can be complex and confusing. We aim to provide reliable communication and counsel you can count on, answering all of your questions and helping you decide on your next steps.
  • A free initial case evaluation. Roundup cases can vary greatly. That’s why we offer a no-obligation case review to help you determine if filing a claim and working with a lawyer is the best choice for you. 
  • In-depth updates on the status of your case. When you’re dealing with long-term health issues, it’s important to focus on the important things. Let us take care of the legal steps, keeping you updated throughout the entirety of your case.
  • Aggressive legal representation, including going to trial if needed. Although every Roundup case is different and not all will require going to trial, our lawyers are prepared to take cases to court if a fair settlement cannot be reached.
  • Assistance in English or Spanish. We aim to serve our clients in the best way possible, and that includes communicating with you in the way you prefer.

At the Lopez Law Group, we are personal injury lawyers who serve the Weslaco, Tyler, Spring, Mission, McAllen, Laredo, Houston, Edinburg, Corpus Christi, Brownsville, and Harlingen areas.

The car accident I had with my 5 year old daughter was one of the most horrific moments and experiences of my life. Fortunately, she was not injured but I had some back issues. I was living in McAllen at the time, but it was actually another attorney that recommend me to Mr. Lopez. Unlike other Attorneys or law groups, Mr. Lopez is more hands on when it came to taking care of my back issues. . His paralegals and secretaries Veronica and Giselle were always helpful. I never felt like I was bothering them and I always had very prompt if not immediate responses. My friend told me that it would take a long time to settle with an insurance company, but Mr. Lopez and his team were able to get money in my pocket within months. My car was completely fixed and they helped with a rental car as well. I was able to go to rehab, pain doctors and chiropractors until I felt better. This group and Mr, Lopez personally, were truly concerned with my well-being , health and compensation. I have recommended Mr. Lopez to all of my friends and family. They have all been grateful for my recommendations. I highly recommend Mr. Lopez as his office is smaller yet as strong or stronger as law offices that are located in San Antonio and Dallas

After doing a lot of research on attorneys in the area of Hidalgo County I chose The Lopez law firm. This was the first time I needed to consult any attorney. When I first consulted with Mr. Lopez and his team I never imagine my case would run only for one year. I am glad I chose Mr. Lopez as my attorney. He fought hard for my case. He was always very willing to meet my needs. At the end my case was won. If I ever need from them again I know they will be eager to help. Thank you Mr. Lopez and the Lopez law firm.
