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.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
