Lawsuit Funding for Victims of Roundup Pesticide

Sarah May | January 24th, 2017

weed killer roundupA growing number of lawsuits are being files over Monsanto’s widely used pesticide, Roundup, the primary ingredient in which is glyphosate, a suspected human carcinogen. Though the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has previously claimed that no significant evidence existed that glyphosate caused cancer in humans, the agency has recently pledged to assess new research from the United Nations’ International Agency for Research on Cancer, which has stated that there is strong likelihood that the chemical does in fact boost cancer risk in those exposed to it, whether through food, occupational exposure or via waterway transmission.

Lawsuit plaintiffs nationwide have alleged that Monsanto negligently failed to conduct proper research into the effects of glyphosate and also failed to warn the general public of known dangers posed by the pesticide products containing it.

Now that growing numbers of plaintiffs are stepping forward after making the link between Roundup and their cancer diagnoses, their need for litigation funding is on the rise. The process of pursuing compensation through the courts can be lengthy, arduous and expensive, as everyday expenses, medical bills and other obligations continue to amass while resolution of legal claims hangs in the balance. Fortunately, help is available.

What’s next for nationwide Roundup litigation?

Plaintiffs alleging that Monsanto’s Roundup pesticide resulted in cancer have succeeded in their attempt to have all such federal cases centralized into multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the Northern District of California. As a result, pretrial proceedings will be consolidated in matters with similar fact patterns and legal arguments, which will facilitate judicial economy as well as consistency of early evidentiary rulings. Whether the MDL will also ease the way for large-scale settlement discussions with Monstanto and perhaps global resolution of claims remains to be seen.
