Bayer AG acquired Monsanto in 2018 and subsequently inherited thousands of legacy lawsuits related to the herbicide Roundup. Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, as well as other cancers and illnesses.

Bayer and Monsanto Litigation and Product Liability Attorney
Roundup is one of the most widely used weed killers in the U.S. The herbicide has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in various scientific studies. For example, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), determined that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans and found that non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is the type of cancer most often associated with exposure to glyphosate.
At this juncture, Bayer has already paid over $10 billion to settle thousands of Roundup product liability claims. The company has also announced that it intends to replace glyphosate-based consumer products beginning in 2023 to mitigate future potential Roundup claims. If you have been diagnosed with cancer or another illness after using Roundup on the job or on your personal property, our firm can help you pursue a product liability lawsuit against Bayer/Monsanto.
Bayer Pharmaceutical Lawsuits
Product liability lawsuits have been filed against Bayer for serious and fatal injuries associated with dangerous medical products and drugs, alleging either that the products were defectively designed or that Bayer failed to adequately warn customers of the potential risks of its products. These products include:
Avelox, a fluoroquinolone antibiotic (FLQ), has been linked to peripheral neuropathy, well as aortic aneurysms and aortic dissections, with potentially fatal side effects. Bayer is facing a number of Avelox lawsuits, but no settlements have been announced.
Yaz and Yasmin, are popular birth control pills that have been used by thousands of women in the U.S. The drugs contain a synthetic progestin called drospirenone that is linked to blood clots, pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in the lungs), deep vein thrombosis, heart attacks, and strokes. Bayer faced thousands of product liability lawsuits that were combined into multidistrict litigation (MDL) that culminated in settlements of over $2 billion.
Mirena is an intrauterine device (IUD) that Bayer claims to be 99 percent effective in preventing pregnancy for up to 5 years. However, the corporation failed to warn doctors and women who had the IUD implanted about potential health risks associated with Mirena, such as migration of the device and the risk of ectopic pregnancies. In some cases, the birth control device may need to be surgically removed. In August 2017, Bayer offered $12.2 million to settle organ perforation cases, however MDL lawsuits in New York and New Jersey were subsequently dismissed.
These lawsuits highlight how Bayer failed to warn doctors and consumers about the potential risks of its unsafe pharmaceutical products.
