Multiple studies and continuous research on exposure to paraquat over the years indicate a strong link to the onset and development of Parkinson’s disease, a debilitating neurodegenerative condition that affects day-to-day life.
Individuals that have been exposed directly or indirectly to paraquat can seek compensatory settlements from the liable manufacturers of the product.
Accumulating evidence indicates that individuals who are exposed to paraquat seem more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease by at least 25%. Other studies provide a concerning rate of incidence of 75% for paraquat exposure of up to 1,600 feet from the source of application.

You must also have specific knowledge of exposure to paraquat or one of the products the herbicide is sold under throughout the U.S.:
