The Link Between Roundup and Cancer
Roundup is the most widely used herbicide, and unfortunately, that has meant it’s also been at the center of thousands of lawsuits.
The initial high-profile lawsuits established a link between the weed killer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This cancer affects the lymph nodes and severely impacts the body’s ability to fight infections, and there’s evidence of over 40% increased cancer risk .
And because it has been established that Roundup caused cancer in multiple ways, thousands of additional cases are waiting to be filed.
If you’re concerned that you developed cancer from exposure to the Roundup weed killer, contact us immediately for a free consultation.
You can’t afford to waste time as the potential payout could be large enough to make a major difference in your access to certain medical treatments.
“Glyphosate has also been the subject of many studies—and legal challenges—regarding its potential to cause cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin lymphoma.“
Who Is Eligible for a Lawsuit in Hawaii?
People who have developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or another type of cancer linked to glyphosate may be able to file a lawsuit. The process of establishing the cause and effect of Roundup use on cancer is the tricky part of all such lawsuits.
It’s important to note that it’s not enough to be at risk of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma because of Roundup exposure in the past. You have to have proof of a medical diagnosis due to the Roundup herbicide.
For residents of Hawaii, lawyers have had a lot of success in winning large payouts for plaintiffs with different types of cancer. But you have to have a legal team beside you with the right experience in cases where the evidence and best approaches can suddenly shift.
What Is the Statute of Limitations in Hawaii?
The time window of two years for lawsuits starts when plaintiffs had their first symptoms of developing cancer or a doctor has provided a diagnosis through a random screening test.
It’s important for lawyers to carefully establish a timeline of your personal exposure and diagnosis to ensure that this deadline doesn’t become an issue for your lawsuit.
Talk to our attorneys today for free advice on what your time limit is, and we’ll ensure that you don’t run into problems over an upcoming deadline.
How Much Is a Lawsuit Worth?
For residents in Hawaii, lawsuits establish a payout based on individual circumstances. In most cases, these payouts have been in the hundreds of thousands, but a few cases have also achieved settlement payouts of over a million dollars.
Here is what your lawyers will go through to establish the right financial compensation in your lawsuit:
- What your medical prognosis is for your quality of life
- How much pain do you have to deal with from cancer and the treatment
- What the impact has been on your employment and ability to provide financial security for your family
- Your need for outside help when it comes to taking care of your children
- Your ability to perform regular household chores and personal hygiene needs
- Medical expenses for you and your family incurred for your treatment
- Cost of possible treatments that could improve your medical prognosis
- The impact on your mental health, including depression, anxiety, and stress
Unfortunately, the Roundup weed killer and related cancer can have quite a serious impact on people’s lives. And you need the support of an experienced litigation team to ensure you don’t leave any stone unturned to get the best possible payout.
