Does a paraquat class-action lawsuit exist?

Multiple medical studies have linked paraquat to the early onset and development of Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative condition that severely impacts those afflicted by it.

Due to the lack of more stringent regulations pertaining to the safe use of paraquat, manufacturers have nevertheless continued commercializing products with very little if any warning of the potential risk factors involved.

This has prompted a number of lawsuits to be filed with the liable manufacturers, with more than 800 such lawsuits having been filed at the federal level as of March 2022. Moreover, nearly 80 paraquat lawsuits have been filed at the state level.

In light of the ever-increasing number of individuals that are filing claims with paraquat manufacturers, there are currently several ongoing class-action lawsuits directed at companies like Syngenta and Growmark that manufacture products containing the substance.

The principal reason why individuals are filing such claims is the fact that most manufacturers were aware of the correlation between their products and the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, and yet have not taken sufficient measures to warn their clients about the risks involved with using their products.

With more and more individuals filing claims of toxic exposure to paraquat that led to a Parkinson’s diagnosis, the potential for larger financial settlements is increasing probability. If you or a family member have been exposed to paraquat and have received a similar diagnosis you may also be eligible for financial compensation from the manufacturers.
