How to Value Damages in a Roundup Cancer Case

Some juries have already awarded large verdicts to people hurt by Roundup®. However, these multi-million dollar verdicts do not guarantee that you will receive the same recovery even if you have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after using Monsanto’s Roundup products.

Prove the Value of Your Case

To recover fair damages in your own Roundup case, you will need to prove the value of your damages. After your attorney establishes that Roundup caused your cancer, your Roundup injury lawyer will gather and present evidence about your unique injuries. You may recover damages for all of your past and future Roundup-related injuries, including:

  • Medical costs. All of your healthcare costs, including but not limited to hospitalizations, cancer treatments, doctors’ visits, medications, and other services should be part of your recovery.
     
  • Lost income. If you are unable to work or unable to earn the same income that you did before your cancer diagnosis, then you may be able to recover for your lost income and benefits.
     
  • Pain and suffering. Your physical pain and emotional suffering may be significant. You may be missing out on your day-to-day activities and special events. You may be unable to do the things that you once enjoyed, and your physical pain may be severe. These damages can be difficult to value, but your lawyer knows what evidence to present to convince the court of your pain and suffering injuries.
     
  • Wrongful death damages. If your loved one died from cancer caused by Roundup products, then your loved one’s estate may recover damages for his medical costs, lost income, pain, suffering, and out-of-pocket expenses that he had before death. Additionally, the estate may recover funeral costs and compensation for the loss to the family.

Additionally, you may recover any other damages related to your cancer and punitive damages if your lawyer proves that Monsanto acted egregiously.

For each type of damage, you will need evidence and documentation. Your lawyer will review your medical records, your employment history, consult with expert witnesses, and take other steps to make sure that as strong a case as possible is presented to the court.
