Ohio product liability lawyer and toxic exposure attorney reviewing Bayer Roundup settlements and Monsanto lawsuits on behalf of injured plaintiffs nationwide
The pharmaceutical company, Bayer AG, looks to moving toward settling thousands of Monsanto glyphosate cancer cases filed against it for the popular weedkiller product, Roundup.
Bayer has held meetings with shareholders in Germany recently, with much of the discussions revolving around potential Bayer Roundup Settlements, which Bloomberg Intelligence analysts say could result in a settlement of as large as $10 billion.
Bayer has been hit with a few very large verdicts that allege Monsanto’s weedkiller, Roundup, is toxic and has caused cancers such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma in numerous Roundup users. The active ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, has been labeled as toxic and banned in some countries.
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies glyphosate as a “likely” human carcinogen. Laboratory studies of glyphosate exposure has showed the ability to damage DNA and human cells, potentially leading to cancer. Other cited studies by plaintiffs have showed increased rates of cancer.
Joe Lyon is a highly-rated Ohio toxic exposure attorney investigating Bayer Roundup settlements and Monsanto cancer lawsuits on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide.
Following the barrage of lawsuits and cancer cases being tried currently in the U.S., Bayer is expected to hire a mediator to lead Roundup cancer settlement talks. Bayer and Monsanto have maintained that their Roundup product is safe for human use, even though thousands of plaintiffs have come forward with related cancer claims. Juries in California have sided with victims, hitting Bayer with huge damages.
Bayer lost the first three Roundup trials, and one resulted in a $2 billion verdict. Now, over 13,000 plaintiffs have pending Roundup injury cases. When Bayer AG purchased Monsanto, the company was already facing 1,300 lawsuits claiming the weedkiller, Roundup, causes non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other serious health conditions. The number of cases has soared since the takeover.
