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. 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 that manufacture products containing the substance.
