A Colorado Syngenta lawyer notes that hundreds of lawsuits claiming that an agribusiness giant was negligent in releasing genetically modified corn into the U.S. market could soon be consolidated into a class action lawsuit. The lawsuit could potentially include every corn farmer in the U.S., since the loss of profit that allegedly stemmed from Syngenta’s actions affected the entire corn industry. Colorado Syngenta corn lawyers are assisting farmers, exporters, and others who claim that they have lost billions of dollars as a result of the modified corn.

Claim: Syngenta Caused Farmers Significant Financial Losses
The legal representatives of hundreds of farmers who allegedly suffered financial losses due to the negligent actions of the agricultural company Syngenta are now requesting that those lawsuits be combined into a class action suit. The pending lawsuits allege that Syngenta caused farmers significant financial losses by producing corn with a genetically modified trait and releasing it into the U.S. market despite knowing that China, a major importer of U.S. corn, would not accept the modified product. If the farmers’ claims are combined into a class action lawsuit, the lawyers trying the individual cases expect that virtually every farmer in the U.S. would have grounds to join, according to KMUW News.
Syngenta maintains that its actions were appropriate because the sale of the genetically modified corn was legal in the U.S. However, the plaintiffs claim that the company was negligent given the clear risk that China would reject the corn, causing farmers substantial financial losses. The plaintiffs are now seeking recompense for the income that they reportedly lost when China refused corn shipments from the U.S. in 2013, the website reported.
How a Colorado Syngenta Lawyer Can Help
Farmers who have lost money as a result of Syngenta selling genetically engineered corn seed are filing Syngenta GMO corn lawsuits. Whether or not a farmer used GMO corn seed, their harvest may have been contaminated, rejected or sold at a lower price as a result of Syngenta’s actions. Plaintiffs include exporters, corn farmers, brokers, grain silos, resellers and others involved in the corn chain of distribution. Corn farmers who did not use Syngenta corn seed may also be able to pursue a claim.
People who have been affected by Syngenta GMO corn are encouraged to seek the advice of a qualified Colorado Syngenta lawyer so that they can be informed of their legal rights.
