What should I know about the mass tort cases against Monsanto Roundup?

Firstly, mass tort cases are those in which you and many other plaintiffs may file against one or many other defendants. In this way, you may be assigned your own, individual court date, in an effort to retrieve the appropriate amount of financial compensation for your own, unique damages.

Well, more and more mass tort cases have been popping up against Monsanto ever since studies reported that excessive exposure to Roundup may lead to a variety of cancers. Namely, Monsanto Roundup exposure has been tied to numerous non-Hodkin’s lymphoma, B or T-cell lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, hairy cell lymphoma, and mantle cell lymphoma diagnoses. This is in addition to other diseases, such as celiac, chronic kidney, heart, and liver diseases. Primarily, the grounds for these lawsuits claim that Monsanto failed to quickly and adequately warn consumers about the dangers posed by Roundup.

Under what circumstances should I file a mass tort claim against the company?

If you believe yourself to be an individual who frequently uses Monsanto Roundup, you must self-examine for symptoms of serious or deadly exposure to it. For example, you must ask yourself whether you have been experiencing uncharacteristic fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, chest pain, shortness of breath, etc. Then, you must see a doctor so that you can undergo the proper medical tests to confirm or deny your ailments from excessive exposure to Roundup.

Only when you receive this confirmation will you retain the legal services of a competent Toronto mass tort lawyer. This is because the mass tort process is quite complex and thereby requires the assistance of a legal representative who has gone through it countless times before. From the consultation and investigation, to filing the claim, undergoing the pre-trial procedures, and reaching a verdict or settlement, a lawyer will hold your hand through every step of the way.

Keep in mind that the statute of limitations for your mass tort claim may be two years from the date you identify the effects of your excessive exposure to Roundup. So please immediately drop everything and call a competent Ontario personal injury lawyer from Merricks Law Group, P.A.
