EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS HANDLING PARAQUAT LAWSUIT CLAIMS
PARAQUAT INFORMATION, RESOURCES, & ATTORNEYS
If you’ve had Parkinson’s symptoms after using paraquat you may have a case.
If you or someone you love was exposed to Paraquat and developed Parkinson’s, you could be eligible for legal action. Paraquat is a herbicide used for killing weeds and is restricted to commercial use only because of its high toxicity. Farmers and agricultural workers are the people at the most significant risk of exposure, but people living next door to industrial farms can also be exposed to Paraquat. This toxic herbicide has been linked to several adverse effects, including Parkinson’s disease. Suppose you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s because of paraquat exposure. In that case, you may be eligible for a paraquat lawsuit, which may offer financial compensation to help cover any medical expenses and lost wages.
According to the unified Parkinsons Advocacy Committee, the evidence strongly suggests chronic exposure to Paraquat may increase your risk of developing Parkinson’s’ disease by 200%-600%. Although Paraquat has been outlawed in 32 nations throughout the world, including the European Union and China, it has not yet been outlawed in the United States. In reality, only in recent years has paraquat use risen in the United States.
Paraquat dichloride, sometimes known as Paraquat, is a very poisonous herbicide that was first used extensively in the 1960s to prevent the growth of weeds and grasses surrounding farms and crops. Paraquat is so toxic that one swallow can be fatal – and there is no known antidote. Because it is highly toxic, Paraquat, purchased in the United States, has a few safety precautions added to help keep people from accidentally eating it. Unfortunately, Paraquat may not have these additional safeguards when purchased from outside of the United States, increasing the possibility of accidental ingestion.
But those safeguards are no help for people exposed to Paraquat at work or living in or around an area that has been sprayed. If you were recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s and think you might be suffering from a case of paraquat poisoning, our knowledgeable attorneys could help.
