Yes, you may still have time to file a Roundup® injury lawsuit. However, you should not wait any longer to talk to an attorney.
Bayer’s Roundup Settlement Offer
In June 2020, Bayer proposed an approximately $11 billion settlement to resolve lawsuits alleging that Roundup caused cancer. The majority of the proposed settlement money would settle existing Roundup cases. However, approximately $1.25 billion would be set aside to settle future Roundup cancer cases.
The proposed settlement could impact your recovery. An experienced injury lawyer can review all of your legal options with you so that you can decide whether or not you want to be part of any settlement if a settlement occurs. If you wait too long, though, you may lose your right to be part of the Roundup settlement.
The Law Limits Your Time to File a Lawsuit
Whether or not a settlement occurs, every state, including Illinois, has a statute of limitations. You must file your case in court before the statute of limitations expires or your case will likely be dismissed, and you won’t recover any compensation for your cancer injury.
The statute of limitations begins running when you find out that you are hurt. In most Roundup injury cases, the statute of limitations begins running when you know or should have known about your non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis. Generally, you will have two years to file your case. However, you shouldn’t wait that long to pursue a legal recovery.
