What Is Paraquat?

When used as a herbicide, farmers use Paraquat for both weed killing and grass management. Unfortunately, it is resilient and can remain in the soil long after sprayed on weeds, making its way into your drinking water and food supply. 

The contamination of both has happened across the country. It will continue to do so until the United States bans Paraquat – just as over 34 countries have.

How Does Paraquat Infect The Human Body?

The most likely way Paraquat contaminates your body is through ingestion – but prolonged exposure to your skin is also a possibility. 

What are the Symptoms of Paraquat Exposure?

Some signs and symptoms of Paraquat exposure include:

  • Pain and swelling of the mouth and throat
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • And diarrhea

What Is Parkinson's Disease?

The focus of most lawsuits against the manufacturers of Paraquat is Parkinson’s disease, which is a brain disorder that causes shaking, stiffness, and difficulty walking and staying balanced. It will worsen over time and lead to reduced income and increased medical bills, making receiving compensation critical.

What Kind of Loss Am I Looking At From Parkinson’s?

Parkinson’s disease is not curable. And because it can only become worse, there is a substantial risk for life-altering circumstances. The economic damage alone is significant. For instance, the burden of care for Parkinson’s – at a minimum – is $25,000 per year. 

Those who suffer from the condition require access to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to handle much of the costs. A Paraquat lawsuit can help defray some or most of the burden and bring relief to families suffering from the ramifications of the disease.
