The number of new lawsuits has been growing faster in recent years. One of the main reasons is that it can often take many years for people to develop symptoms of cancer that can be linked to Roundup use.
But more worrying is the trend of litigation cases ruling in favor of plaintiffs with cancer other than non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
This opens the door for thousands of plaintiffs, but it requires the skills of a highly experienced legal team to adjust to such new and emerging evidence.
Here’s why that’s so important.
Legal Support From Nevada’s Top Litigation Team
Here at Schmidt & Clark LLC, we have built a law firm based on a reputation for being one of the best litigators in America. We have helped hundreds of plaintiffs with getting large payouts from corporations, including Bayer/Monsanto.
And one thing we have noticed in these lawsuits is that it’s not just people who developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who can win large payouts.
With over 20 years of experience, we have been able to adjust our evidence-gathering process and have successfully convinced juries that other types of cancer can also result from exposure to Roundup.
But our attorneys are also fully aware of the stress and worry that plaintiffs can experience. And that’s why we focus on building a relationship and service that puts you at the center of everything we do.
We also operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t have to worry about the costs of the legal case. You will only see legal fees when we win your case in court.
As a result, you can focus your attention on your health and family without all the distractions of the lawsuit.
Can Roundup Weed Killer Cause Cancer?
Yes, the Roundup weed killer can cause cancer, with the most common type so far being non-Hodgkin's lymphoma . But people with a cancer diagnosis of multiple myeloma and leukemia have also had large payouts from lawsuits.
The underlying problem is the active ingredient glyphosate, which is a large risk to public health because it is one of the most commonly used weed killers.
The difficulty for lawyers is that they now need to shift their evidence-gathering process to ensure they present these other types of cancer in a convincing way.
And many jury verdicts agree with the World Health Organization and the International Agency For Research On Cancer in their assessment of glyphosate .
These organizations have been critical of the continued use and list glyphosate as a probable carcinogen for humans.

Who Can File Lawsuits in Nevada?
People who regularly had exposure to this weed killer and later developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another type of cancer may be able to file lawsuits in Nevada.
The two most important factors in any lawsuit are proving that the plaintiff was regularly exposed to the weed killer and a cancer diagnosis that can be linked to that exposure.
It’s not enough to claim that you used a dangerous chemical without being warned of all the health risks it can pose. There has to be some form of personal injury involved.
In Nevada, lawyers have successfully won payout for people exposed through employment. These are typically agricultural and lawn care workers, gardeners, landscapers, and many other professions.
But it’s also possible to file lawsuits when people were exposed because other people and companies used the weed killer near their homes or workplaces. But such cases can become a lot more complicated to present.
Unfortunately, there is no class action lawsuit that you can join right now. You will need to file an individual Roundup cancer case, and that’s where we have the expertise to help.
Call our law firm today for a free consultation and find out whether you are eligible to file such a case.
What Is the Statute of Limitations in Nevada?
The statute of limitations for Roundup cancer claims due to glyphosate exposure in Nevada is two years . And it’s critical that you involve specialized lawyers in making sure you don’t miss that deadline.
Unlike other personal injury cases that can be linked to an accident at a specific time and place, there can be a long delay in noticing the first symptoms of cancer.
And some people have developed cancer many years after they regularly used Roundup.
This means that the clock starts ticking from when you notice symptoms or receive a medical diagnosis confirming cancer.
Establishing that timeline requires experience in litigation processes, and you can’t afford to risk the outcome of your case by hiring the wrong attorney.
How Much Is a Payout in a Lawsuit Worth?
Payouts in lawsuits can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and some of these cases have even paid out in the millions. But it’s important to understand that the amount you can get through a trial verdict or settlement offer depends on your personal situation.
Here are some of the important variables that influence the financial compensation in a lawsuit:
- The medical diagnosis and progression of cancer impacting your quality of life
- How much pain you have to deal with due to cancer and the treatment
- Financial losses from the inability to work and earn a living
- Costs associated with medical treatments for maximum health benefits
- Your ability to care for children and perform household chores without help
- Impacts on your mental health like stress, anxiety, and depression
Every personal injury case is different, and you need an experienced litigation attorney to fully assess all the details to maximize your compensation.
