Paraquat Herbicide Case Evaluation

Paraquat, a commercial herbicide utilized primarily in no-till farming, is marketed under various trade names such as Gramoxone, Para-SHOT, Parazone, Quick-Quat, Firestorm, and Helmquat, among others. Extensive evidence has directly linked Paraquat to a significantly increased likelihood of developing Parkinson’s Disease, a progressive disorder that hampers an individual’s ability to perform tasks independently, often requiring extensive and costly care.

According to a 2011 study conducted by the National Institutes of Health, individuals exposed to Paraquat face approximately 2.5 times, or 250%, higher risk of developing Parkinson’s Disease compared to those without exposure. Certain studies even indicate an increased risk as high as 600%!

Law firms across the nation have successfully fought for settlements reaching up to $200,000 for individuals afflicted with Parkinson’s Disease. If you or a loved one has Parkinson’s Disease and has a history of working in agriculture, farming, groundskeeping, or residing in rural areas near farms, vineyards, or orchards, you may be eligible for substantial compensation.

Notably, Paraquat has been banned in several countries, including China, Brazil, and the European Union. However, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States has chosen not to ban this herbicide, allowing it to remain legal and available for use in all 50 states. Consequently, hardworking Americans remain at risk. Research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology in 2009 demonstrated that even living within 1,600 areas where Paraquat has been utilized results in a 75% higher risk of diagnosis.
