If you ever used Round-Up weed killer or another glyphosate-based herbicide and later received a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, you may be eligible to take legal action against Round-Up manufacturer Monsanto and parent company Bayer AG. The Newsome Melton team can review your case today, and our mass tort lawyers may be able to file a lawsuit on your behalf.
There is multidistrict litigation (MDL) currently underway in U.S. Federal Court against Monsanto related to Round-Up and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. If you qualify, we can help you join MDL 2741 to pursue compensation and hold the company liable.
To take legal action as a part of MDL 2741 or another lawsuit against Monsanto, you must have demonstrable exposure to Round-Up or another glyphosate-based weed killer. Most people whose cases have gone to trial already were exposed to high levels of the herbicide because of their work in agriculture, landscaping or lawn care, or maintenance work. However, homeowners who used it on their own property are also eligible.
In addition, you must be able to prove one of the following through medical records or other means:
If you are currently undergoing treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, we understand your hesitation to get involved in a legal case. However, the time to act is now before time runs out. You may be able to hold Monsanto liable and recover compensation for your current and future care needs.
In some cases, doctors recommend not treating non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Instead, they “watch and wait,” regularly checking to see if the disease progresses. If this describes your condition, you can likely still take legal action. You may be able to hold Monsanto liable for your monitoring and any future care you may need.
Thankfully, there are effective treatments that work well for some people who develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. If you previously received treatment for the condition and are now in remission or cured, you may still be able to pursue compensation by filing a lawsuit against Monsanto.
We can handle wrongful death cases if you lost an immediate family member who had a non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis. We may even be able to take action if they passed away as a result of an infection or other condition besides non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
If you or a family member used or were exposed to a glyphosate-based weed killer and fall into one of these categories, the mass tort legal team from Newsome Melton can help you understand your rights. We can review your case at no charge. If we believe you may qualify to join MDL 2741 or file another type of lawsuit, we can request your medical records and begin building a case on your behalf.
