Active case

People who have allegedly been harmed by Roundup exposure may be eligible for legal action and compensation. If you or your loved ones have been affected by the toxic herbicide, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit that could end in a Roundup settlement. Settlements can help pay for your medical expenses and lost income due to injuries.

What is a Roundup settlement?

Roundup settlements are legal agreements reached between someone allegedly harmed by the herbicide Roundup and the manufacturers of the chemical, Bayer and Monsanto Company.

Roundup, including its active ingredient, glyphosate, has allegedly been linked to human health risks. In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer updated glyphosate’s classification to “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

Harms allegedly linked to glyphosate and Roundup include non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia. People who have been harmed by Roundup exposure have filed claims against Bayer and Monsanto. These claims may be litigated in court or settled out of court.

Bayer’s Q3 2023 financial report revealed as of October 2023:

  • 165,000 total Roundup claims
  • 113,000 of those claims settled or otherwise resolved

Roundup claims continue to be filed and some claims receive settlement offers. For example, compare the above numbers to the company’s year-end 2022 financial report numbers. That report mentioned 154,000 total claims as of February 2023, with 109,000 settled or resolved. That means from just February 2023 to October 2023, 11,000 claims were filed and 4,000 were resolved.

Attorneys with toxic exposure litigation experience may be able to help victims file a Roundup lawsuit and although there is never a guarantee, may reach a favorable settlement.
