Paraquat Herbicide Class Action Lawsuit
Paraquat Herbicide Linked to Parkinson’s Disease
Paraquat herbicide is a weed and grass-killer that has been linked to Parkinson’s disease. Lawsuits are being filed alleging that makers involved in the Paraquat product are liable for the herbicide contributing to the development of Parkinson’s disease.
Paraquat is a toxic chemical that is widely used as a herbicide, primarily for weed and grass control. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies paraquat as “restricted use.” This means that it can be used only by people who are licensed applicators. However, it is still widely used in all 50 states. Most often used as a spray, Paraquat has caused illness or death through direct ingestion as well as by accidental exposure. Paraquat is marketed under various trade names including Gramoxone, Para-SHOT, Parazone, Quick-Quat, Firestorm, Helmquat and more.
Parkinson's Disease From Paraquat
In previous studies there have been investigations into the relationship between Parkinson’s disease and the exposure to herbicides and pesticides that are toxic to nervous tissue areas. These studies found that people who used the Paraquat product developed Parkinson’s disease at least 2 times or 200% more than others that do not use it. It was also revealed that any exposure to Paraquat within 1600 feet of a home resulted in an increase in Parkinson’s disease risk of 75%.
Parkinson’s is a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement, often in the form of tremors, stiffness, or loss of balance. Although certain medications can control the symptoms of Parkinson’s, there is no cure. Those most at risk of developing Parkinson’s as a result of Paraquat exposure include farm workers, landscapers, nursery workers, and others in occupations that require frequent use of herbicides on crops.
Lawsuits are being filed alleging that companies involved in the process of manufacturing, marketing, and distributing paraquat are liable for causing or contributing to the development of Parkinson’s disease. If you or a loved one developed Parkinson’s or other serious side effects resulting from paraquat exposure, filing a lawsuit could help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and lost earning capacity. Pursuing a claim will also encourage herbicide manufacturers to fully test their products before releasing them on the market, and to stop selling dangerous products altogether.
