The glyphosate in Roundup is currently the subject of more than 4,000 lawsuits alleging the weed killer caused non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other types of cancer. Seeing as Accord Herbicide contains the exact same ingredient, people injured by it may also qualify to file suit against the manufacturer seeking compensation for their injuries.

What’s the problem?
Accord XRT II herbicide, a non-selective broad-spectrum weed killer manufactured by Dow AgroSciences, contains glyphosate, a chemical that was recently classified by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer as “probably carcinogenic” to humans. Monsanto, the company that developed glyphosate in the 1970s for use in its Roundup weed killer, currently faces more than 4,000 lawsuits filed on behalf of individuals alleging they were diagnosed with cancer as a result of handling or being exposed to the product.

About Class Action Lawsuits
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of an Accord Herbicide Class Action Suit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after being exposed to Accord weed killer.
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Accord Herbicide lawsuits on their behalf.
