Roundup Lawsuit Lawyers
Exposure to Roundup Linked to Cancer
To many people, the word “Roundup” is synonymous with the term “weedkiller.” This is because Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world. The main ingredient in this broadly used product is glyphosate, an organophosphorus compound that numerous studies have linked to several deadly forms of cancer.
If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with cancer after being exposed to Roundup’s toxic ingredients, you deserve compensation for your emotional, physical, and financial damages. Contact the Roundup lawsuit lawyers at Potts Law Firm to discuss how you can recover financial restitution for your injuries, pain, and suffering. We help victims of dangerous products nationwide, offering compassionate counsel, personalized guidance, and aggressive advocacy throughout the legal process.

What Is Roundup?
Roundup is one of the most widely used herbicides, or weedkillers, in the United States. Originally produced by Monsanto, which was later acquired by Bayer, Roundup contains the key ingredient, glyphosate.
First accepted for use in the United States in 1974, glyphosate is a synthetic compound that is highly effective at killing perennial weeds. It is considered “nonselective,” meaning it kills most plants it comes into contact with by preventing those plants from producing certain growth proteins.
Glyphosate is not specific to Roundup; in fact, it is a common key ingredient in numerous herbicides currently used for both consumer and industrial agricultural purposes in the U.S. Unfortunately, glyphosate—and, therefore, Roundup—has been shown to lead to numerous harmful effects in humans who are exposed to the substance.
What Are the Problems Associated with Roundup?
Numerous studies have found a possible correlation between people exposed to glyphosate and people who develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a potentially terminal cancer. Although the toxicity of pure glyphosate, the key ingredient in Roundup, is hotly debated, a 2019 study by DEOHS researchers found that glyphosate exposure increased the risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma by 41%.
Those most at risk of being exposed to Roundup include:
- Agricultural workers
- Public parks workers
- Herbicide applicators
- Professional gardeners
According to past and ongoing Roundup lawsuits, Monsanto/Bayer knew or should have known that Roundup increases the risk of cancer and other harmful effects. To date, Monsanto has agreed to pay approximately $11 billion to settle nearly 100,000 Roundup lawsuits—and tens of thousands of claims are still awaiting resolution.
Filing a Roundup Exposure Lawsuit
If you were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another form of cancer after prolonged exposure to Roundup, you could be entitled to compensation. Our Roundup attorneys at Potts Law Firm can help you file a lawsuit or take part in ongoing mass litigation. We have extensive experience and the necessary resources to act swiftly on your behalf.
Who Is Liable?
Currently, lawsuits involving cancer and other injuries caused by exposure to Roundup are being brought against Bayer, the company that acquired Monsanto in 2018. Despite Bayer’s attempts to stop thousands of Roundup lawsuits, the Supreme Court has rejected the biotechnology company’s appeals.
Because the potentially harmful effects of glyphosate have been known for decades, it is argued that Monsanto—and, later, Bayer—knew or should have known that its product could cause serious, widespread harm. However, Monsanto and now Bayer have refused to acknowledge that Roundup is correlated with a higher risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other illnesses. At Potts Law Firm, we believe that those responsible for putting profits ahead of public safety should be held accountable. Our Roundup lawsuit lawyers can help you fight for justice and the fair compensation you are owed.
What Damages Can Be Recovered?
The exact damages you can recover in your Roundup lawsuit will depend on the specific details of your case. Factors such as the severity of your injury, the cost of your medical care, and the extent of your pain and suffering all influence the overall value of your claim.
That being said, you may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:
- Medical expenses, including projected future medical costs
- Miscellaneous out-of-pocket expenses, such as in-home care
- Lost wages and other income
- Loss of earning ability and future income
- Physical and mental pain and suffering
If your loved one passed away due to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another illness after being exposed to Roundup, you could have grounds for a wrongful death claim. We encourage you to reach out to our firm today to learn more during a free initial consultation.
