HAVE YOU BEEN EXPOSED TO PARAQUAT?

If you have diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and have been exposed to paraquat you might qualify for a case which might result in compensation. If you have personally mixed, applied, or loaded to Paraquat at least once in an agricultural setting (i.e., on a farm and not in their back yard, on a golf course, or in a landscaping business) after 1964 you might have a case.

Examples of Good Cases

Claimant can describe using Paraquat on certain crops and understands that the product is used to kill everything.
In other words, if a claimant says they sprayed Paraquat directly on live crops and the crops did not die, this is not a case.
Note: some claimants used Paraquat to spray very targeted areas around live crops. However, these claimants should still differentiate that they purposely avoided the crops.

If the claimant says they bought Paraquat at Home Depot or an over-the-counter retailer, this is not a case.
Better cases will have corroboration of use, e.g., (documents, receipts, invoices, old containers, other witnesses, a supplier) that paraquat was in fact used.

Claimant is not required to have an applicator license but must understand how Paraquat was procured without one. (This will likely include providing the name/position of the person that had the license and purchased the Paraquat.)

Claimant must have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at least 5 years after first applying Paraquat.
Note: Better cases have 10 years of latency.

Must have used Paraquat in the US and be diagnosed in the US.

Paraquat Exposure and Mass Tort

The Link Between Paraquat and Parkinson's Disease

Paraquat, a highly toxic herbicide widely used in agriculture for weed and grass control, has been linked to an increased risk of Parkinson's disease, a chronic and progressive neurological disorder. This association has been the subject of several scientific studies that reveal a potential connection between exposure to Paraquat and the onset of Parkinson's disease.

For instance, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) conducted a study titled, "The Farming and Movement Evaluation (FAME) Study" (Kamel et al., 2011). It revealed that people who used Paraquat or a similar herbicide called rotenone were approximately 2.5 times more likely to develop Parkinson's disease1.

Further studies corroborated these findings, like a meta-analysis published in the journal "Environmental Health Perspectives" (van der Mark et al., 2012), which reported a significant association between Paraquat exposure and Parkinson's disease2.

As a result of these scientific findings, legal cases - often referred to as "mass tort" cases - have begun to unfold across the nation.

Mass Tort for Paraquat


A mass tort is a civil action involving numerous plaintiffs against one or a few corporate defendants in state or federal court. The Paraquat lawsuits claim that long-term exposure to the herbicide caused individuals to develop Parkinson's disease, and that the manufacturers knew about the risks but did not properly warn the public or users of the product.

These lawsuits seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, and, in cases of wrongful death, funeral expenses and loss of companionship.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and you believe that exposure to Paraquat may be the cause, it's important to understand your legal options. An experienced mass tort attorney can assess your situation and guide you through the complex litigation process.

With the growing body of evidence linking Paraquat to Parkinson's disease, now is the time for individuals affected by this dangerous product to step forward and demand justice.
