Corn farmers and other businesses in the corn industry are filing claims against Syngenta. Blaming them for the crippling drop in corn market prices in during and post 2013.

If you’re a corn farmer or work in the corn industry and lost income because of the major shift in corn market prices then you could file a lawsuit against Syngenta.

 Starting a lawsuit can feel daunting, especially against a worldwide biotechnological business, but if you follow the correct procedures and prepare a strong case, then you can significantly increase your chances of winning compensation.

This is why we’re sharing some advice on what to do when starting your corn lawsuit. Before you even choose a lawyer for your case, there is some information you need to collect. Here is how to begin your corn lawsuit against Syngenta to recover your lost income.

1. Details about your farm

If you’re a corn farmer then providing details about your corn farm is crucial.

  • Which US state is your farm located?
  • What is the size of your corn field(s)?
  • Did you use Syngenta’s Agrisure Viptera MIR162?
  • How much income have you lost as a result of the drop in corn market prices?

2. Your position in the corn industry

You don’t have to be a corn farmer to file a claim against Syngenta. As everyone in the corn industry was affected, in theory, anyone in the corn industry can claim. Corn lawsuits can be filed by any person or business who can show they were negatively affected financially because of the drop in corn market prices.

Any lawyer you approach will want to know your position in the corn industry and if you’ve got a strong case.

Prepare information that explains your job position, what is your role in the corn industry and how you’ve been affected. This helps speed up the process of starting a lawsuit, because you can give this information immediately to your attorney.

Landlords, exporters, transporters, corn elevators and many other businesses have suffered from loss of income and can make a claim.

3. Information about your income loss

How much money have you lost? Have you had to sell land because you could not afford rent? Have you been unable to pay your landlord? These are the questions you will be asked by an attorney preparing your case.

Calculate how much money you have lost since 2013. It would be beneficial for your case if you have any documentation you can use to prove the loss of earnings.

4. Find the right attorney for your corn lawsuit

You cannot hire just any lawyer. Throughout the US, there are thousands of lawyers but only a small percentage will be experienced enough to handle a case like this.
