Can Breathing Roundup Make You Sick? Breathing Roundup may make you sick, especially if you are exposed to it repeatedly over a long period of time.

According to the National Pesticide Information Center research, breathing Roundup may make you sick by causing skin, eye, nose, or throat irritation. In addition to other illnesses, some scientists cite glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Roundup, as a possible carcinogen.

If you believe breathing Roundup made you sick, you might require medical tests that include blood and urine analysis and X-rays. You might also require treatments like breathing support, IV fluids, and monitoring. The costs of these medical exams and tests and their corresponding treatments can add up quickly. If you can prove the connection between your illness and Roundup exposure, the cost of these and all the current and future medical care you require should be the responsibility of the corporation that manufactured Roundup.

If you were exposed to Roundup weed killer and you believe breathing Roundup during or after spraying caused you to become ill, you could be entitled to financial compensation. Your lawyer can help you determine your eligibility to file a personal injury claim for financial recovery.

Warning Signs of Glyphosate Exposure

Glyphosate is a dangerous chemical that can potentially cause eye, nose, skin, and throat irritation. Additionally, the U.S. National Library of Medicine research cites the following symptoms of accidental ingestion of glyphosate:

  • Cramps
  • Anxiety
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Headache
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Weakness

If you experience one or more of these symptoms after Roundup exposure, contact your health care provider right away. If you believe breathing or ingesting Roundup is responsible for your symptoms, contact a local personal injury team to explore your compensation options. You could be eligible for financial recovery for your medical and other injury-related expenses.

A Personal Injury Lawyer May Be Able To Help You Pursue Compensation

If breathing in Roundup made you or someone you love ill, you could have a personal injury claim for financial compensation. Your lawyer may be able to help you navigate the personal injury process and get the funds for the financial impact of your current medical situation. 

To ensure the validity and viability of your personal injury claim, your legal team will work hard to prove the cause of your illness and assign a financial value to your claim. To prove the active ingredient in Roundup made you sick, they may scrutinize your medical records, consult with medical experts, and compile scientific data that proves the danger of your exposure to Roundup. 

To arrive at the monetary value of your compensation claim, your lawyer will calculate your economic and non-economic financial expenses and losses. If your compensation claim is successful, you may be compensated for:

  • Current medical care
  • Future medical care
  • Current lost income
  • Future income loss
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress

You do not have to calculate your compensation on your own. A personal injury lawyer may be able to help you assign a value to anticipated portions of your claim, as well as intangible portions like pain and suffering and mental anguish. In addition to calculating the financial value of your claim, your lawyer may also ensure your claim is filed on time. 

Do Not Let Your Right to Compensation Expire

Filing and preparing an effective lawsuit takes time. When you are recovering from medical issues, you might not be able to fully focus your attention on your pending compensation claim. While you recover, your lawyer may work on your behalf to ensure you maintain your right to financial recovery.

If you do not file your lawsuit within the allotted time that your state requires, you put your right to compensation at risk. This means you may not be able to legally compel payment from Roundup’s manufacturer. You also risk having to carry the financial burden of your illness on your own. Your lawyer will aim to ensure your claim is accurately valued and your right to compensation is not in jeopardy of running out of time.
