Who Qualifies for a Roundup Lawsuit?

First, you need to prove that you had significant or long-term exposure to Roundup. Many plaintiffs worked as gardeners, groundskeepers, farmers, or in other occupations where Roundup was regularly used. Individuals living in close proximity to fields, parks, and other areas treated with Roundup may also have a claim.

Second, you need to prove that you have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another cancer associated with glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup). The diagnosis must have been made on or after June 1, 2018.

Finally, your Roundup cancer lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations in your state expires. The statute of limitations is the time limit for taking legal action. It is in your best interest to speak to an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.

What Cancers Are Included in the Roundup Lawsuit?

In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen. To date, more than 100,000 lawsuits have been filed against the makers of Roundup by individuals who developed cancer after extensive use of or exposure to the herbicide.

Multiple cancers are associated with Roundup exposure. These include:

Roundup & Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system, affecting white blood cells called lymphocytes and manifesting as tumors in lymph nodes or other lymphoid tissues throughout the body. It is the cancer most commonly cited in Roundup cancer lawsuits.

There are several subtypes of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma associated with Roundup exposure, including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, Burkitt lymphoma, peripheral T-cell lymphoma, and others.

Each subtype varies in its clinical behavior, histological characteristics, and symptoms. General symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma include:

  • Swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, and/or groin
  • Unexplained fever
  • Persistent fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Abdominal pain or swelling
  • Chest pain or pressure, coughing, or difficulty breathing
  • Itchy skin
  • Recurrent infections
  • Easy bruising or bleeding

Researchers have found that individuals exposed to glyphosate-based herbicides are 41% more likely to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Burg Simpson can help if you or someone you love has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and you suspect Roundup may have been a factor.

Roundup & Leukemia

A cancer of the blood and bone marrow, leukemia causes abnormal production of white blood cells. The malignant cells proliferate and disrupt normal blood cell production, which compromises the body’s immune response against infections and its capacity to effectively carry oxygen.

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia, hairy cell leukemia, and large granular lymphocytic leukemia have been linked to glyphosate. Symptoms vary but generally include:

  • Frequent infections
  • Easy bruising or bleeding, including nosebleeds, bleeding gums, etc.
  • Bone pain or tenderness
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fever or chills
  • Swollen lymph nodes, often painless
  • Pale skin
  • Shortness of breath

Roundup & Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a cancer that primarily affects plasma cells, the component of the blood that carries nutrients, hormones, waste products, and other essential substances throughout the body. The abnormal plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow, leading to bone damage and impaired production of normal blood cells.

Research has found a “statistically significant” connection between glyphosate and multiple myeloma. Symptoms may include:

  • Bone pain, especially in the back, ribs, pelvis, or skull
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Recurrent infections
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Frequent urination, especially at night
  • Nausea, vomiting, and/or constipation
  • Weakness or numbness in the legs
  • Swelling of the legs and/or ankles
  • Excessive thirst
  • Confusion or mental fog
  • Shortness of breath

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should see a doctor as soon as possible—especially if you have regularly used Roundup on the job or live in close proximity to an area where herbicides are frequently applied. Burg Simpson can provide qualified legal guidance if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a cancer connected to Roundup.
