Paraquat Exposure Lawyers

Paraquat is a highly toxic chemical commonly used for weed and grass control. This chemical is so toxic that it’s only available for use by licensed professionals. Unfortunately, these licensed applicators may have inadvertently put their lives at risk, and may develop severe diseases, including:

  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Parkinsonism
  • Early Onset Parkinson’s Disease
  • Tremors, treated with levodopa

Our best paraquat lawsuit lawyers know that applicators have up to a 600% higher risk of developing these illnesses. File a claim now, and we’ll hold the manufacturers responsible for getting you fair compensation.

Why File A Paraquat Lawsuit

Anyone who may have been exposed to Paraquat and has developed Parkinson’s Disease or other illnesses may be entitled to significant compensation after two studies linking the disease to Paraquat have health and safety advocates urging the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban the substance.

In a letter to the EPA, The Parkinson’s Foundation noted that two studies found that exposure to paraquat increased the risk of Parkinson’s later in life. Some of the people involved in the study showed a much higher risk of developing Parkinson’s, especially if they were exposed at a young age and over a number of years.

Another study found that people who lived near fields where paraquat was used had a Parkinson’s rate many times higher than other people who were not exposed.

Economic Impact

The economic cost of living with Parkinson’s can quickly spiral out of control with little to no help.

It costs over $26,000 per year for care alone, and the Parkinson’s Foundation estimates that it puts an annual economic burden of up to $26,4 billion on the United States.

In some cases, you be entitled to compensation that can help cover these costs and much more.

Who Is Exposed?

Those who have professionally handled herbicides like paraquat are at the highest risk of developing negative health effects, but they’re not the only people at risk.

Those living by farms, fields or other areas that are commonly treated with herbicides are also at a high risk. Even if you have never worked in a field, the proximity and regular exposure to these chemicals could cause Parkinson’s Disease and other severe illnesses.

Filing A Claim

If you or a loved one has developed Parkinson’s Disease, early onset Parkinson’s, or similar diseases, you may be right in suspecting herbicides like paraquat are the culprit.

In the United States, the manufacturers of these chemicals have been making it since 1961 and attorneys argue they’ve known about the negative health consequences for years but have still marketed their products as safe to use, putting entire populations at risk.

The Paraquat lawsuit attorneys at The Barnes Firm think that’s wrong – and we’ll take your case to court to prove it.
