When the first high-profile lawsuits ended up with successful payouts to plaintiffs, people didn’t realize that this would open a flood of thousands more plaintiffs.
And while most of them developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma from regular exposure to this toxic weed killer, recent lawsuits have shown victims winning Roundup cases because of other types of cancer.
This has made things a lot more difficult for lawyers as it requires a new approach to presenting evidence in a lawsuit.
And that’s why you need the help of one of the most experienced litigation law firms in Oregon.
Legal Support From Oregon’s Top Litigation Team
Since the initial Roundup trials, there has been an established process of presenting evidence for the link of the weed killer to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. But when new scientific evidence emerges, it’s important that lawyers quickly adapt their approach to a lawsuit.
Our team at Schmidt & Clark LLC has been fighting for Roundup cancer victims for many years.
And because of a 20-year track record in litigation against some of the largest corporations in America, our lawyers have built a reputation of achieving the highest success rates.
We are not only capable of representing clients with different types of Roundup cancer diagnoses, but we also ensure that our clients experience a stress-free legal process.
That means that you have the peace of mind that your law firm will take care of your case to the highest standards so that you can focus on your health and family.
And because we work on a contingency fee basis, you won’t have to worry about large legal bills for your Roundup claim either.
Is Roundup Weed Killer Carcinogenic?
Yes, there is scientific proof and legal precedents that Roundup can cause non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. But several lawsuits across America have also successfully proven a link to other types of cancer, including leukemia and multiple myeloma .
Because of this new evidence, there is a significant potential for a new flood of plaintiffs filing a lawsuit.
One reason many people haven’t come forward is that government organizations provide conflicting information. The EP, for example, still doesn’t warn the public of all the risks associated with Roundup’s active ingredient, glyphosate.
But the International Agency For Research On Cancer (part of the World Health Organization) has listed glyphosate as probably carcinogenic and is calling for it to be banned .
Fortunately, jury verdicts have ruled in favor of most plaintiffs due to the established legal proof that links the Roundup weed killer to a cancer diagnosis.
But it’s important not to delay taking the first steps in your lawsuit.
Let me explain.
“Herbicide manufacturers have stood by their products, even while still agreeing to settlements of current and future lawsuits. In June 2020, Bayer, which acquired Monsanto in 2018, settled the majority of current and possible future lawsuits for more than $10 million.”
Who Can File Lawsuits in Oregon?
People who have developed cancer like non-Hodgkin lymphoma that can be tied to regular exposure to Roundup may be eligible to file lawsuits. That means there needs to be proof of two important things.
First of all, it’s not enough to have used the Monsanto roundup weed killer without a warning that it could cause serious health issues.
You must have a medical diagnosis showing that you have cancer. And you also need proof that you, or someone around you, regularly used Roundup.
In most cases, people like landscapers, gardeners, and lawn care workers have filed claims. But there have also been many lawsuits where people ended up with cancer because others sprayed the toxic weed killer near their homes or workplace.
Such cases can become very complex, and we would advise you to take advantage of our free case evaluation by calling our law firm immediately.
Here’s why that’s so important.
What Is the Statute of Limitations in Oregon?
The statute of limitations for lawsuits in Oregon is two years . That means you have a certain amount of time from when you first developed symptoms or received a medical cancer diagnosis.
It’s different from other accident-related personal injury claims where there is an exact event and time. It can take many years for cancer to develop after glyphosate exposure.
But establishing that timeline is a critical part of litigation, and it’s important that you have an experienced team by your side to ensure that you don’t miss out on Roundup settlement money or a trial payout.
Call our lawyers immediately, and we’ll provide you with a completely free evaluation of the case to ensure you file your claim within this important deadline.
How Much Is a Lawsuit Worth?
Payouts in lawsuits in Oregon depend on the personal circumstances of the plaintiff. The average lawsuit payout is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, with some even going into the millions.
Here are some of the important variables that our personal injury lawyers will carefully assess for your case:
- Impact of cancer on your quality of life and life expectancy
- Loss of income during treatment and your ability to work and earn a living in the future
- How much pain you’re dealing with due to the serious illness and medical treatment
- Cost of medical bills so far and for continued treatment to achieve the best health results
- Impact of the illness on your mental health, including depression, anxiety, and stress
- Whether you’re still able to perform household chores without the need for outside help
- Your ability to take care of parenting duties and care for your children
In Oregon, lawsuits have successfully achieved large payouts for plaintiffs. So don’t delay taking the first step and contact our lawyers today.
