The Dangers of Paraquat

Paraquat is a highly toxic herbicide used widely since the 1960s. Numerous products contain it, including industrial and agricultural products. Paraquat exposure has been linked to severe health issues such as Parkinson’s Disease (PD), lung and heart diseases, kidney damage, and other chronic illnesses. 

Whether absorbed through the skin or inhaled, Paraquat has been linked to an increased risk of developing PD. Unfortunately, victims don’t realize they were exposed to the harsh chemicals until after serious symptoms occur. 

Who Can File a Lawsuit?

If Paraquat impacted you or a loved one, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. To qualify for a lawsuit, you must have 1) sprayed it, 2) used the product, or 3) worked around those spraying it on the same property. We do not accept cases where Paraquat “drifted” from one property or farm to another and caused PD.

Further, you must demonstrate that the direct Paraquat exposure caused your illness or the illness of a loved one. Paraquat required a license to purchase and a registry of all license holders after 1978. 

It’s important to note that Paraquat lawsuits are filed on an individual basis – meaning you must prove your case individually. Additionally, to be eligible, you must file your lawsuit within a certain period after Paraquat exposure occurred. The experienced Paraquat lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe can investigate your case, determine if a factual claim exists, and represent you in legal matters.

The Paraquat & Parkinson’s Link

Numerous scientific studies have linked Paraquat to PD. Paraquat can disrupt the structure and function of neurons that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain. This loss of dopamine leads to PD symptoms, including impaired fine motor skills.

A study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) concluded that Paraquat exposure increases the risk of Parkinson’s Disease. The NIH study found that people exposed to Paraquat were two and a half times more likely to develop PD than those who had not been exposed.
