Bayer May be on the Verge of a Monsanto Roundup Settlement for Thousands of Claims Alleging Glyphosate-Based Weed Killers Caused Various Forms of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Gilman Law LLP and the Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. are offering assistance to long-term users of Monsanto Roundup weed killer products who wish to undergo medical screening for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a class of blood cancers allegedly linked to glyphosate exposure.
Reports suggests Bayer AG is on the verge of settling thousands of Monsanto Roundup lawsuits that allege glyphosate caused non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Once a settlement is announced, time to file a claim could be severely limited.
“Certain forms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma are slow growing and may be present for years before symptoms appear,” the attorneys said. “We’re urging long-term Roundup users to contact our firm to arrange for a medical evaluation as soon as possible, even if they’re not experiencing any cancer symptoms. A delayed diagnosis could prevent those who may be entitled to compensation from participating in any future Roundup settlement program.”
Free, no-obligation medical screenings are available by calling Gilman Law LLP at (888)-252-0048 or contact the Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. by calling (239) 649-8050.
What is Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma describes a group of cancers that affect white blood cells called lymphocytes, including:
- B-Cell lymphoma
- T-Cell lymphoma
- Follicular lymphoma
- Mantle cell lymphoma
- Small lymphocytic lymphoma
- Hairy cell leukemia
- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
Symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can include:
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Unexplained weight loss
- Swollen abdomen
- Feeling full after only a small amount of food
- Chest pain or pressure
- Shortness of breath or cough
- Severe or frequent infections
- Easy bruising or bleeding
- Unexplained fever
- Drenching night sweats
Some forms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia, follicular lymphoma, and small lymphocytic lymphoma, are indolent – or very slow growing. As a result, many people are asymptomatic for years and are unaware they have cancer. However, appropriate medical screening can detect non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma before symptoms appear.
Monsanto Roundup and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in certain Monsanto-branded weed killers, including:
- Roundup Ultra
- Roundup Pro
- Ranger Pro
In March 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer announced the results of an independent review suggesting glyphosate exposure increased the risk for cancer, especially non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and its various subtypes.
Thousands of plaintiffs have since filed Roundup lawsuits seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred as a result of these cancers. Three such plaintiffs have already been awarded verdicts totaling more than $2 billion by California juries that found glyphosate to be a substantial factor in the development of their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. According to Bloomberg News, Bayer is in now in discussions to settle the Roundup litigation for $10 billion.
“The indolent nature of some non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas could cause otherwise eligible claimants to miss out on their chance to participate in any future Roundup settlement program,” the attorneys continued. “We’re urging long-term Roundup users to contact our firms for assistance, even if they appear to be in good health at this time.”
Free, no-obligation medical evaluations and case reviews can be arranged by contacting either Gilman Law LLP at (888)-252-0048 or the Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. at (239) 649-8050.
