Over the last few years, it has become very clear how much damage the Roundup weed killer has done by damaging the health of thousands of people.
And while most of those lawsuits focused on people with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, there is increasing evidence and legal precedents to support claims for other types of cancer as well.
That could open the door for thousands more people to get the financial compensation they deserve, but having the right litigation team is important.
Here’s why that’s important.
Legal Support From Utah’s Top Litigation Team
Here at Schmidt & Clark LLC, we have built a litigation team with over 20 years of experience fighting legal battles against the largest corporations in America.
And what we have seen recently is that it’s no longer just people diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who are filing a lawsuit.
There is new evidence of other types of cancer as well, and that’s where you need a highly skilled team to represent you.
With non-Hodgkin lymphoma cases, there are legal precedents and plenty of evidence to support claims. But you need highly experienced lawyers to gather and present this kind of new evidence.
You don’t want to leave such an important part of all lawsuits to someone who doesn’t have a proven track record.
As one of the leading law firms for litigation, we have helped hundreds of people with their Roundup cancer claims, including difficult cases with types of cancer that have not been proven in thousands of cases.
And because we offer a case evaluation as well as contingency fee pricing, you won’t have to worry about having the financial means to get your case started in the first place.
Does Roundup Weed Killer Cause Cancer?
Yes, Roundup weed killer has been scientifically linked to cancer. Roundup’s active ingredient is glyphosate, which can lead to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia .
Most of the Roundup cancer victims that have won large payouts and settlements so far have claimed because they had a cancer diagnosis for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
But plaintiffs with myeloma and leukemia have also convinced juries to award them payouts.
What seems to confuse many people is that the EPA doesn’t warn consumers about the health risks of the Roundup weed killer.
But the World Health Organization and the International Agency For Research On Cancer have taken steps to highlight glyphosate exposure as probably carcinogenic for humans .
Our law firm has the experience needed to fight a lawsuit based on different types of cancer, and we will always ensure that you get the best possible payout,
Who Is Eligible for Lawsuits in Utah?
People who had regular exposure to Roundup and then developed cancer linked to the weed killer may be eligible to file a lawsuit. The important thing to keep in mind is that you have to prove a serious medical condition.
It’s not enough to say that you used Roundup without being warned about the potential consequences.
Our lawyers will establish all the evidence to support that you regularly had exposure to the chemicals. And we will use medical documents about your diagnosis to detail your illness.
In most legal cases, it has been people who professionally used Roundup, like landscapers, agricultural workers, gardeners, and lawn care workers.
But it’s also possible to file a claim if someone else regularly used Roundup near your workplace or home that would have exposed you.
Such cases are more complex, but if you call us for a free consultation, we’ll carefully analyze your situation and advise you on the best possible next steps.

What Is the Statute of Limitations in Utah?
In Utah, lawsuits have a statute of limitations of four years . While that might seem like a long time, it’s important not to waste any time before filing a personal injury lawsuit.
First of all, you need to understand that the clock starts ticking when you are diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. This limitation isn’t tied to when you used Roundup, as it can take many years to notice the first symptoms.
But it’s still vital for every lawsuit to establish a clear timeline of glyphosate exposure and later cancer development.
Our team will carefully guide you through this process to ensure that you don’t miss out on a life-changing payout.
The other reason for not wasting any time is that the sooner you start the filing process, the sooner you may receive your payout to improve your quality of life and access to the best medical treatment.
How Much Is a Lawsuit Worth?
In Utah, lawsuits can be worth hundreds of thousands and sometimes millions of dollars. But the amount of financial compensation in any personal injury case depends on your circumstances.
Here are some of the things our lawyers will discuss with you:
- The prognosis for your life expectancy and quality of life as a result of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or other cancer
- Loss of earnings and your ability to remain in employment in the future
- How much pain you’re dealing with due to the illness and treatment
- Impact on your mental health like stress, anxiety, and depression
- Whether you’re able to care for your children and perform regular parenting duties
- How much help you regularly need to complete household chores
Because of all these variables, all lawsuits are different and require highly experienced litigation lawyers to ensure that you get the maximum possible compensation.
