Scientific research does not point directly to Roundup, causing Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It does, however, establish a clear and compelling link between Roundup’s active ingredient, glyphosate, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Therefore, the use of Roundup may cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you or someone you love was diagnosed with this form of cancer after contact with Roundup, your lawyer may be able to help:
- Establish the connection between Roundup and your diagnosis
- Prove the cost of your medical care and related expenses
- Assign financial liability to the corporation that makes Roundup
- Negotiate a financial settlement or represent you in court
If you believe that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, caused your non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or that of someone you love, your lawyer may be able to help you build a strong case for financial recovery.
Types of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma starts in your lymph nodes and spreads throughout your body. Its stage and severity determine the cost and extent of your medical care. The Mayo Clinic identifies the following five types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma:
- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
- Cutaneous B-cell lymphoma
- Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma
- Follicular lymphoma
- Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia
Your health care team might first suspect you are suffering from one of these forms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma if you display or complain of any of the following symptoms:
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Abdominal pain
- Abdominal swelling
- Chest pain or difficulty breathing
- Chronic fatigue
- Fever or night sweats
- Unexplained weight loss
No matter which form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma you are diagnosed with, if Roundup played a role in its development, your lawyer might be able to help you request and receive financial compensation.
Evaluate Your Risk of Exposure to the Glyphosate in Roundup
Glyphosate has been in widespread use as a weed killer since 1974, according to the University of Washington. This research identifies the danger of prolonged use of Roundup. In addition to farmers and other agricultural industry workers, people who might be at risk of exposure due to breathing in, spraying, or touching Roundup include:
- Landscape architects
- Lawn care employees
If you or someone you love was affected by the use of Roundup in your personal or professional lives, your health could have been adversely impacted. If you were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma due to glyphosate exposure, you could be entitled to financial recovery.
Start by Filing Your Lawsuit on Time
When you file a compensation lawsuit against the company that manufactures Roundup, the statute of limitations generally limits your ability to file a personal injury lawsuit to a set amount of years from the time your injuries occur. Unlike a personal injury lawsuit you might file after suffering injuries in a car accident, it can be difficult to determine the exact date your exposure to Roundup first affected your health. Your lawyer can help you establish the relevant dates and ensure your compliance with the statute of limitations.
In addition to meeting the time restrictions and eliminating the risks associated with missing the state-mandated filing deadline, your lawyer may calculate the value of your compensation claim by adding the total costs of:
- Past medical care
- Future medical care
- Past income loss
- Future income loss
- Pain and suffering
- Mental distress
- Emotional despair
Make sure you discuss every financial expense or loss that stems from your cancer diagnosis with your lawyer. They may request your medical records and bills to establish and prove your right to monetary compensation.
