Paraquat has been used as a pesticide in agricultural settings since the early 1960s. Unfortunately, it’s also been linked with Parkinson’s disease, and those exposed to this dangerous chemical are paying the price for the negligence of paraquat manufacturers.

Our paraquat lawsuit attorneys are here to fight for the rights of those affected. We’re currently accepting inquiries about paraquat lawsuits, and we want to help you determine whether you have a case and then get you the compensation you need.

What We Know About the Dangers of Paraquat

A growing body of research has linked paraquat with Parkinson’s disease. Studies indicate that the dangerous pesticide could increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s by 200-600%.

Several countries have banned the use of paraquat entirely, including those in the European Union and China. And yet, the use of paraquat in the U.S. has doubled in the last decade.

Lawsuits Against Paraquat Manufacturers Are Underway

Paraquat manufacturers are facing a growing number of lawsuits for the health complications caused by the pesticide. Manufacturers should be held accountable for the harm paraquat users have suffered.

If you’ve been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease after being exposed to paraquat, you could deserve compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life

When it comes to lawsuits against product manufacturers, timing is important. Momentum in U.S. courts for these claims is growing, and now is the time to act against paraquat manufacturers. If you’re considering filing a legal claim to get compensation for the damages you’re suffering, we encourage you to reach out to our team to schedule a free consultation.

Who Is Taking Action Against Paraquat Manufacturers?

In many cases, people who worked directly or indirectly with paraquat are filing lawsuits against paraquat manufacturers. This includes agricultural workers who either handled paraquat or were simply exposed to this pesticide as part of their jobs.

It’s not necessary that you applied this product directly to crops to be at an elevated risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. If you were regularly near paraquat or near crops where paraquat was applied, then you should consider your legal options if you’re now suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

The Signs and Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease can affect each sufferer differently. However, many people who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s report some or many of the following symptoms:

  • Tremors, often beginning in the hands or fingers
  • Slowed movements
  • Rigid muscles
  • Impaired balance
  • Impaired posture
  • Significant changes in speech patterns
  • Difficulty performing movements that were once automatic, such as blinking or smiling

If you notice these symptoms, you should speak to your physician as soon as possible. You could also be entitled to compensation if you’re experiencing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and have been exposed to paraquat for prolonged periods.

    Due to a personal injury accident, not my fault, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my case. I chose Ponce Law due to TV advertising and proximity to my home. Throughout the process they were helpful explaining steps being taken. They were helpful in reducing some of the subrogation expenses which ultimately put more of the settlement in my pocket. Thank you to David Wyatt & Taylor Desmet for their assistance throughout this process.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
