Dedicated Product Injury Attorneys Pursuing Compensation on Behalf of Clients Harmed by Dangerous Consumer Products in Grand Rapids and Traverse City

Roundup, a weed killer developed by agribusiness giant Monsanto, has been used by both homeowners and farmers for many years. Allegations have now arisen that Roundup may cause serious injuries and even death to some users. More specifically, several lawsuits have alleged that the active ingredient found in Roundup – glyphosate – may cause cancer (such as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma).

If you or someone you care about has developed cancer or other health problems after using Roundup, your first step should be to learn more about your legal rights. The Traverse City and Grand Rapids Roundup lawyers at the Neumann Law Group have a long history of representing victims of defective consumer products. We understand how to strategically position your claim to maximize your chance of success.

What is a Product Liability Lawsuit?

Product liability lawsuits, which are claims seeking compensation for injuries caused by dangerous or defective products, may be based on the defective design of the product, a particular manufacturing defect, a breach of warranty, or a failure to warn consumers of the known dangers or risks of the product. Many of the currently pending claims against the makers of Roundup fall in the last category – failure to warn. Several plaintiffs have alleged that they should have been told – and that the manufacturer has known for a long time – that the ingredients in Roundup are harmful to humans and potentially carcinogenic.

Understanding Your Path to Compensation for Roundup Injuries

If you believe that you developed cancer or another serious health problem related to your exposure to Roundup, it is imperative that you speak with a Roundup injury attorney in Grand Rapids or Traverse City about filing a claim. In the tragic event that your loved one passed away due to alleged Roundup-related health concerns, your family may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the manufacturer. Keep in mind that both personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits are subject to a strict statute of limitations, which prevents cases from being filed more than a certain period of time past the time when you discovered your injuries may have been caused by Roundup exposure.

What is the Average Settlement in a Roundup Case?

The settlement figures in a product liability lawsuit can vary considerably from case to case. Medical expenses, lost earnings, loss of spousal consortium, pain and suffering, and other factors are taken into consideration. The economic damages for medical care and lost wages can be very different depending on the situation, even for two individuals diagnosed with the same type of cancer on the same day. One person may succumb to the illness much sooner than the other, resulting in a lesser amount of medical expenses. The surviving victim may require many years of future medical care, the expense of which may be borne by the defendant if a Grand Rapids or Traverse City Roundup injury attorney can prove its liability in court. Additionally, a person with modest wages (like a fast food worker, for instance) will not be entitled to the same amount of compensation for their loss of earnings as, for example, a brain surgeon who can no longer work due to his or her injuries. This is not to say that one person is “worth” more than another, only that the defendant takes the plaintiff as he or she is found and is required to compensate him or her for any economic losses that were sustained.
