Dicamba Herbicide Lawsuits

Dicamba is a broad-spectrum herbicide commonly used to control weeds in various agricultural crops. However, it has been associated with off-target movement, causing damage to neighboring crops, vegetation, and ecosystems. Individuals affected by dicamba drift or exposure may be eligible for compensation for their losses and damages.

In fact, according to The New York Times, in 2017 alone, dicamba “damaged more than 3.6 million acres of soybean crops.” Millions have already been awarded for crop damage, and farmers and landowners can still file a lawsuit related to the herbicide use in certain instances.

Dicamba Drift Cases

Farmers, landowners, and agricultural workers who have suffered losses due to dicamba drift or exposure may experience various damages, including:

  • Crop damage, yield loss, and reduced productivity
  • Economic losses from decreased crop quality or market value
  • Environmental harm, such as damage to non-target plants, trees, and ecosystems
  • Health effects from direct exposure, such as respiratory issues or skin irritation

Eligibility for Compensation

To be eligible for compensation related to dicamba drift or exposure, individuals must meet certain criteria:

  • Must have suffered losses, damages, or health effects directly attributable to dicamba drift or exposure
  • Must be able to demonstrate the link between the harm suffered and the use of dicamba
