Roundup Claims and the Link to Cancer
Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world. The key ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate, an herbicide used by commercial, industrial, agricultural, and residential consumers. In 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) stated that glyphosate was a carcinogen (causes cancer). A new study released in 2019 by the University of Washington revealed that people exposed to Roundup have a 41 percent greater risk of getting cancer than people who are not exposed to the herbicide.
You may be eligible for a Roundup claim if:
- You or a family member was diagnosed with cancer such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, or leukemia.
- You or the diagnosed have a history of using Roundup at home or at work.
- Your claim is filed within your state's deadline for such lawsuits.

Certain Cancers Are Linked to Exposure to Roundup
Research studies show that people who are exposed to Roundup are more likely to develop certain types of cancer. The most common cancers linked to Roundup exposure are non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia. However, if you or a family member used Roundup and have been diagnosed with a different form of cancer, you may still be eligible for a claim.
Your Environment May Expose You to Roundup
You may not necessarily have had to use Roundup personally to be exposed to its carcinogen. For example, if you live in a community that is regularly sprayed with Roundup and you are diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, you might be eligible for a Roundup claim.
Do Not Let the Clock Run Out for a Potential Claim
Most states have a statute of limitations for Roundup claims and lawsuits. If you or a loved one received a cancer diagnosis after exposure to Roundup, you have a limited amount of time to pursue potential compensation. We can tell you if you are within your state's statutes of limitations.
You Deserve to Know if You Are Eligible for Compensation

You may be eligible for a Roundup claim and seek damages for such expenses as:
- Medical bills including chemotherapy and other cancer treatment
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
Recent Plaintiff Victories in Roundup Claims

Roundup is sold in hardware stores and gardening centers. You do not need any special training to use it. Roundup comes in either liquid or granular form.
Typically, people are exposed to Roundup by:
- Breathing in mist, vapor, or granular dust while preparing or applying.
- Absorbing through the skin while using or by touching plants that are still wet with spray.
- Ingesting through the nose or mouth, usually due to improper hand washing after use.
