Why Is Roundup Dangerous?
Roundup has for decades been one of the most popular brands of herbicide, or weed killer. Although Monsanto first introduced Roundup in the 1970s, sales did not take off until the mid-1990s after the company began marketing seeds that were genetically modified to resist glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup. As a result, Monsanto crops could continue to grow in the presence of Roundup while harmful or unwanted weeds or vegetation would be eliminated. Monsanto was later acquired by pharmaceutical manufacturer Bayer in 2018
However, by 2015 the World Health Organization had classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic,” meaning that it is believed to potentially cause cancer. Thereafter, Monsanto/Bayer was subject to lawsuits alleging that exposure to Roundup caused cancers such as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Although there is not yet a scientific consensus that glyphosate causes cancer in humans, juries have imposed liability on Monsanto/Bayer on the basis that the companies failed to warn consumers and users of Roundup of the potential risks of developing cancer due to exposure to glyphosate.
Holding Manufacturers Liable for Roundup Cancer
Bayer has announced that, in 2023, it will stop selling Roundup products containing glyphosate and instead introduce glyphosate-free formulations, pending review and approval from government regulators. If you have used Roundup products and have since been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or other forms of cancer, you may be entitled to pursue a product liability claim to hold Bayer liable for expenses and losses that you have incurred due to your illness.
While courts are willing to let claims that Roundup causes cancer go to trial, in cases where plaintiffs have successfully recovered compensation from Monsanto/Bayer the jury awarded compensation under the theory that the companies failed to adequately warn purchasers and users of Roundup of the potential health risks associated with the product. In addition, some courts have suggested that federal environmental regulators reevaluate their official position that glyphosate is not carcinogenic.

Frequently Asked Questions about Roundup Cancer Lawsuits in Florida
In Florida, the statute of limitations on product liability claims typically gives you four years from the date that you were injured or that you discovered (or should have discovered) that you were injured by a defective or dangerous product such as Roundup to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer and other liable parties. However, under no circumstances can you file a lawsuit later than 12 years after the date of your last purchase of Roundup that you were exposed to. Filing suit after the statute of limitations or repose has expired on your product liability claim may result in your case being dismissed, which will result in you losing your rights to recover compensation for the injury and loss that you have sustained.
If you have developed an illness due to exposure to Roundup weed killer, you may be able to obtain financial recovery for financial expenses and personal losses that you have incurred because of your medical harm. This can include reimbursement for your medical and rehabilitation costs, costs of long-term healthcare and personal care, lost wages/income, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life activities, or reduced life expectancy.
