Roundup Weed Killer Cancer Lawsuit Attorneys

Product Liability Lawyers Helping Injured Consumers in North Carolina and South Carolina.

Roundup weed killer has been used for decades and was thought to be a safe and effective herbicide. However, studies have linked the active ingredient in it, glyphosate, with cases of Leukemia and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in users.

Allegations against the manufacturer, Monsanto, suggest that the company failed to warn consumers of cancer risks. Litigation is pending in many jurisdictions across the country, and some plaintiffs have already been awarded substantial damages for injuries or the death of a loved one caused by exposure to Roundup. We are focusing on potential cases for people regularly exposed to Roundup as part of their work, such as landscapers, lawn and garden workers, and golf course maintenance personnel who sprayed Roundup for ground maintenance. The North Carolina and South Carolina Roundup lawyers at Grimes Teich Anderson are reviewing claims pertaining to this weed killer.

Product liability lawsuits can be complicated and protracted, so it is important to get an early start if you or a person close to you has a possible claim. Product liability cases may contain multiple theories of liability, including failure to warn, strict liability, negligence, and breach of warranty. Sometimes there are multiple defendants in these cases; manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers all face potential liability in some situations.

Damages in Product Liability Cases

Monetary compensation may be sought not only for the victim’s medical expenses and lost earnings caused by injuries associated with a dangerous product but also for his or her pain and suffering and other losses. In some cases, punitive damages may also be a possibility, although these are not routinely awarded. The injured person’s spouse may seek payment for loss of consortium, and the family of a person killed by a dangerous product may file a claim for funeral and burial costs, medical expenses, and other damages based on the loss of their loved one. A Roundup injury attorney can help North Carolina or South Carolina residents fight for the full range of damages to which they are entitled.

Understanding the Time Limitations of a Product Liability Lawsuit

It is important to note that product liability lawsuits are subject to a statute of limitations. This time limit, which is set by state law, can vary substantially from one jurisdiction to another. In some states, the statute of limitations depends on whether the claimant is seeking compensation for his or her own injuries or asserting a claim for a loved one’s wrongful death. Usually, the statute of limitations is measured from the date of the accident or injury giving rise to the claim. In addition to the statute of limitations, there may also be a statute of repose that is calculated from a different date, such as the date of the initial purchase of the allegedly defective product.

An experienced North Carolina or South Carolina Roundup cancer attorney can help you understand the filing deadline in your specific case. It is important to seek counsel as soon as possible if you think that you or a loved one has been hurt by using this weed killer so that the appropriate paperwork can be filed within the time required by law. In situations in which a statute of repose applies, a person may have a shorter period of time in which to file a claim than the amount of time that the statute of limitations would otherwise allow. Contacting counsel promptly is also important for a proper investigation of the accident. Evidence can grow stale over time, making liability more difficult to prove.
