If you or a loved one has developed cancer after using Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, you may be entitled to compensation. Depending on the nature of your claim, you can expect to receive compensation from a consolidated or class action lawsuit. In a consolidated lawsuit, you can file for a settlement from a single company and receive a portion of the total settlement. Depending on the number of claims in the class, the amount of money awarded can be large or small.
Tiered Points System To Determine Settlement Amounts
If you are the victim of a Roundup cancer case, you have the right to recover compensation for your losses. This includes intangible losses such as pain and suffering. However, figuring out how much you can expect to get can be a complicated task. Fortunately, there are resources to help you calculate the average amount of compensation you can expect.
The first step is to determine what your chances of success are. You may have a better chance of getting a settlement if you have a long history of exposure to Roundup, or if you have been diagnosed with a more rare form of cancer. In addition, you are more likely to receive punitive damages.
There are several resources that estimate the value of intangible losses in Roundup cancer lawsuits. These range from $5,000 to $250,000. Depending on your specific case, you can expect to receive a greater or lesser payout.
Bayer/Monsanto’s Legal Team Will Argue That You Failed To Follow Labeling And Instructions On Proper Use Of The Product
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer or lymphoma after using Bayer/Monsanto’s Roundup product, your legal team will argue that you failed to follow labeling and instructions on proper use. Unfortunately, this finding is still a huge blow to plaintiffs in pending Roundup lawsuits.
The initial round of Roundup trials produced massive jury verdicts for plaintiffs. In fact, it led to the $11 billion settlement between Bayer and victims of the pesticide. But now, there’s a new class action suit against Bayer, which is the same core complaint as the victims in the NHL case.
This new lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court of Kansas City, claims that Bayer’s herbicide caused three different types of cancer, including melanoma. However, Bayer’s legal team argues that Roundup cancer is preempted by federal law.
It seems that Bayer’s strategy is to settle the cases it can handle and let the weak ones go to trial. However, Bayer’s Roundup lawyers have been making a lot of mistakes during their litigation.
Class Action vs. MDL
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, there are still options for compensation. A Roundup cancer lawsuit can provide you with financial relief to cover the cost of your medical expenses.
The plaintiffs who file the lawsuits claim that Bayer AG marketed Roundup weedkiller and that the herbicide caused them to develop cancer. They also allege that Monsanto remained in business and produced the product despite its link to cancer.
Since the discovery of the link between Roundup and cancer, thousands of lawsuits have been filed. In three multi-district litigation (MDL) bellwether trials, juries awarded substantial compensation to the plaintiffs.
However, a controversial proposal has slowed settlement efforts. Bayer/Monsanto has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review a bellwether case. This case demonstrates the potential for a global settlement agreement.
A scientific panel will study the evidence, and determine if there is a causal relationship between Roundup and cancer. These findings will be binding on all future claimants.
If you have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and used Roundup, you might have a claim. There are more than 30,000 lawsuits pending against Bayer, the manufacturer of the popular weed killer. This is a big headache for a publicly traded corporation.
However, Bayer is preparing to settle some of these cases. They are hoping that an agreement will keep the product in stores and prevent new claims from popping up.
In December, the U.S. Supreme Court will take a look at the case. The Biden administration has not yet made a decision, but it invited the Court to weigh in.
Bayer has been trying to avoid a jury trial, which takes too long. It wants to negotiate settlements with victims of Roundup cancer. The company is setting aside over $6 billion to pay for these settlements.
But it isn’t clear how much of the total will be paid out. It is unclear how many plaintiffs will receive compensation.
