The use of paraquat in the US has been deemed legal with a set of regulative provisions, even though mounting evidence indicates a solid correlation between exposure to the substance and developing Parkinson’s disease.
The statute of limitations refers to the period of time when an individual can submit a paraquat claim, which can vary depending on the state where you’re filing your claim.
It can range from anywhere between 1 to 6 years, however, in most cases, the statute of limitations is between 2 and 3 years from the moment you or a loved one received the Parkinson’s diagnosis.
Failing to submit a paraquat claim within this timeframe may, unfortunately, bar you from receiving any form of compensation from the liable manufacturers of paraquat.
That is exactly why it’s of the utmost importance to seek expert legal assistance on the matter once you or a loved one have received a Parkinson’s diagnosis, as the process of filing the claim itself is a complex and time-consuming matter.
