Paraquat Lawsuit

Have you or your relative received a diagnosis of a neurodegenerative brain disorder known as Parkinson’s disease because of exposure to paraquat, a highly toxic, weed-killing herbicide?

If so, you might want to consider filing a paraquat lawsuit to get the compensation necessary to pay medical bills and cover other expenses.

This puts both farmers and agricultural laborers at such a high risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

Farmers and agricultural laborers are not the only ones susceptible to this health condition. So are you if you live near industrial farms.

Then if you have fallen prey to paraquat exposure and been sick, it’s time you find effective ways to obtain justice.

Choose the Luff Law Firm to be provided with a dedicated personal injury attorney to fight relentlessly on your behalf.

Long-term health effects of Paraquat Exposure

As discussed above, exposure to paraquat can lead to Parkinson’s disease, including multiple system atrophy, atypical Parkinson’s, and progressive supranuclear palsy.

Developing Parkinson’s disease  can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms. As it causes your brain to lose neurons and the dopamine neurotransmitters produced by these neurons, Parkinson’s disease causes the following symptoms.

  • Postural instability or impaired balance
  • Shaking movement when relaxing the muscles
  • Slowness in voluntary movement and reflexes
  • Resistance to passive movement
  • Depression
  • Apathy
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Sleep disorders or insomnia
  • Constipation

How to Know if You are Eligible to File a Paraquat Lawsuit?

You are eligible for the paraquat lawsuit if you have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or have had these terrible symptoms after being exposed to the toxic herbicide.

The Link between Paraquat and Parkison’s disease

While highly toxic to humans, paraquat has been used to keep resistant weeds and grass from growing around crops on small and large commercial plantations, orchards, and farms.

Long-term exposure to paraquat can lead to severe injuries, including death. When ingested or in the reach of an individual, this herbicide can cause the person to experience the following immediate side effects:

  • Dehydration
  • Muscle fatigue or weakness
  • Coma
  • Increased heart rate
  • Seizures
  • Breathing difficulties leading to death
  • Swelling of the mouth and throat accompanied with pain
  • Confusion
  • Vomiting, nausea, bloody stool or diarrhea
