Lawsuit For Those who might be affected by Roundup: Who’s covered?
Over the years, Roundup has become one of the most popular weed killers on the market. As early as 1985, scientists have sounded alarm bells about the potential dangers of being exposed to Roundup and other weed killers that contain its main active ingredient, glyphosate.
Due to its popularity and household use, many groups of people may have been impacted by Roundup. That includes those who may not even be aware they were exposed to the chemical.
Decisions have not been limited to class action suits. In 2019, a California jury delivered a $2 billion verdict to a couple who claimed Roundup caused their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, though a court reduced the final settlement amount. In that same year, a California man was awarded $80 million in a trial verdict. A 2018 landmark trial awarded $289 million to a groundskeeper who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. That verdict was finalized at $78 million.
