As one of the most widely used herbicides in the US, paraquat has been present on the market for more than 60 years, primarily utilized for weed and grass control.
However, due to its highly toxic contents, paraquat presents a plethora of health and safety hazards that have determined the implementation of several regulative measures, restricting its use solely to trained and licensed operators.
These measures have proven to be insufficient, as several studies over the past decade have uncovered that exposure to paraquat holds an increased correlation with the early onset and development of neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s.
In the unfortunate event that you or a family member has developed Parkinson’s as a result of prolonged exposure to paraquat, there are legal avenues of action that enable those affected to seek compensation from liable manufacturing companies. Claims of toxic exposure can be filed if there is demonstrable evidence pertaining to the substance’s use leading to a Parkinson’s diagnosis.
The team of experts at Atraxia Law will comprehensively analyze your or your family member’s situation to determine whether there are grounds to successfully file a paraquat claim against its manufacturers and if your or your family members are entitled to compensation.
While the statute of limitations for such claims can range from 1 to 6 years depending on the state, a far more realistic estimate of 2-3 years from the moment of diagnosis makes it imperative to seek legal guidance and assistance as quickly as possible.
