Paraquat Class Action Lawsuit

Paraquat is Banned in Switzerland, China, Brazil, and the European Union. Has This Toxic Pesticide Affected Your Life?

Though numerous studies have shown its toxicity, Paraquat is one of the most used herbicides in the USA. While the EU banned Paraquat in 2007 due to its link to Parkinson’s disease and other deadly illnesses, Paraquat use in the United States has doubled since 2009. If you were exposed to Paraquat and have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, you may be entitled to a settlement.

Americans have been exposed to Paraquat since 1961

Most Americans who have been exposed to Paraquat work in the agriculture industry. Farmers, harvesters, and those who supply and apply chemicals to crops are at the highest risk of developing Parkinson’s disease due to Paraquat exposure. If you or a loved one has developed symptoms of Parkinson's disease, but are unfamiliar with Paraquat, it is possible that it was used under a different name. The chemical can be found in the following brand names:

  • Cyclone
  • Firestorm
  • Gramoxone
  • Helmquat
  • Ortho-Paraquat
  • Parazone
  • Para Shot
