If you are not familiar with Round Up or the lawsuits surrounding their weed killer products, studies have shown that RoundUp Weedkiller is linked to cancer. RoundUp and it’s a larger entity, Bayer denies this claim. However, Bayer is considering settling all cases and moving on.
Round-Up and it’s link to cancer
Studies discovered that long-term exposure to RoundUp has been linked to cancer. It has been linked specifically with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Studies determined that one of Round Up’s main ingredients, glyphosate, has carcinogenic qualities. Further studies concluded that glyphosate increases the chances of developing cancer when exposed to it.
The Lawsuit itself
Bayer is facing around 18000 individual lawsuits. Some are surprised that Bayer is considering settling all of their lawsuits for a total of 8 billion dollars. Each individual lawsuit may be awarded millions. This could cost Bayer, if forced to pay anywhere from18 billion dollars to 50 billion dollars, and possibly even more. This would put the company in huge financial trouble.
Bayer has been unwilling to work with plaintiffs seeking compensation in the past, but financial pressure is forcing them to reassess their position. Bayer is hoping to settle all current lawsuits for 8 billion dollars, which is much less than the projected 18 to 50 billion dollars.
This number is only a projection, though. There were two specific cases recently that received much more than one million dollars each. Dewayne Johnson walked away with 78.5 million. After that, Edwin Hardeman was awarded 80 million dollars after he proved his case that his exposure to glyphosate caused him to develop cancer.
