Monsanto Roundup Claim Preservation - Unfortunately, in many cases, those who have suffered injury from Monsanto Roundup may not understand how to preserve their claim, therefore, could end up unable to file a Roundup lawsuit to receive compensation for their injuries. When too much time passes, not only can the statutes of limitations be exceeded, evidence and witnesses can disappear over time. Since evidence is of the utmost importance to your future claim, your Roundup attorney will want to ensure no evidence is lost. Once you have consulted a Sullo & Sullo Roundup attorney, evidence gathering will begin immediately. In many cases, Monsanto Roundup injuries can take time to manifest. Perhaps you have been exposed to Roundup weed killer for years, then you develop Roundup non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another type of Roundup cancer.
The consideration in a Roundup product liability claim is largely one of time. Not only must product liability claims be filed within your state’s statute of limitations, your Roundup attorney will need time to carefully build a Roundup lawsuit on your behalf. If you have a history of significant Roundup exposure, but you have not yet experienced any adverse health symptoms as a result, it could still be beneficial to speak to an experienced Sullo & Sullo Roundup attorney. In many cases, you may simply be unaware that you have developed Roundup non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another type of Roundup cancer. Because of this, it is a good idea to talk to your physician and have certain tests performed, as well as to speak to a knowledgeable attorney. Being proactive can make a significant difference in the event you develop Roundup injuries and want to file a Monsanto Roundup lawsuit.
Monsanto Roundup Weed Killer Statutes of Limitations - As noted, each state has a specific statute of limitations for various types of lawsuits. In the state of Texas, product liability statutes of limitations are two years. In the grand scheme of things, this is not a long amount of time, therefore, it is extremely important that you make sure you are within the statute so you will not be barred from filing a Monsanto Roundup lawsuit, and that you give your Roundup attorney the necessary time to put together a solid claim on your behalf.
Claim Investigation in a Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit - An investigation into Monsanto Roundup injuries can be quite extensive. Your Roundup attorney will have to carefully document your exposure to the herbicide and then will examine your medical records and your specific diagnosis. The active ingredient, glyphosate, in the weed killer, Roundup, has been linked to an increased risk of Roundup non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as well as to the following diseases and illnesses:
- Bone cancer;
- Multiple myeloma;
- B-cell lymphoma;
- DNA damage;
- Chromosomal damage;
- Skin tumors;
- Respiratory issues;
- Renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer);
- Pancreatic cell tumors, and
- Other types of cancer.
Farm and agricultural workers who routinely use Roundup are at a higher risk of Roundup injury, although home gardeners and those who use Roundup on lawns or in forestry applications could also face Roundup cancers or other Roundup-related illnesses. The International Agency for Research on Cancer released a 2015 report which deemed Roundup a probable carcinogen.
A Canadian study, published in 2001, found that men exposed to glyphosate were developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at a higher rate after being exposed to glyphosate for under ten years. A U.S. study found that glyphosate, as well as other herbicides, were potentially carcinogenic, associated with increased levels of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Finally, a Swedish study, published in the International Journal of Cancer in 2008, found the risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma doubled after being exposed to glyphosate for less than ten years.
Filing a Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit - If you have suffered injury after using Monsanto Roundup weed killer, it is important that you speak to a knowledgeable Sullo & Sullo Roundup attorney. Your attorney will evaluate the facts of your case, answer any questions you have, and ask you questions about your illness and your glyphosate exposure. You may wonder who makes Roundup, or you may have questions about Roundup and cancer. Your Roundup attorney from Sullo & Sullo can answer these questions thoroughly, helping you decide whether you should file a Monsanto Roundup lawsuit.
How Does Contingency Work on My Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit? When you file a personal injury or product liability claim, you will have a contingency fee agreement with your Roundup attorney. This means the fee you pay will be a percentage of the total amount of any recovery in the claim, whether that recovery is through a settlement, a jury verdict or any other type of alternative dispute resolution procedure. The contingency aspect means if your attorney is unable to recover any monetary settlement, then there is no attorney fee.
This shifts the risk of litigation and legal fee costs from the client to the attorney; if the attorney is success, he or she is rewarded for taking the risk and being diligent in working on behalf of the client. In short, your Roundup attorney takes all the risk in order to share in the rewards with you at the end of the case, working to the benefit of both of you. Litigating a product liability claim is very time intensive; your Roundup attorney could put in hundreds of hours of work, incurring thousands of dollars in costs to prepare your Roundup claim for court.
