Financial compensation is the only form of settlement that can be gained if an afflicted individual seeks to file a claim with the companies liable for manufacturing paraquat, with conservative estimates of potential average settlement ranging between $10,000 and $200,000. There have not been settlements paid out yet, these are due in the near future.
Paraquat is widely used in agricultural and landscaping practices, being an efficient yet highly toxic herbicide. While paraquat poisoning can be fatal, as small amounts can lead to death and there is currently no antidote, concerning studies on the effects of prolonged exposure to the substance strongly suggest a correlation with the onset and development of Parkinson’s disease.
