WHAT IS PARAQUAT?
Paraquat is a weed killer that goes by many names. Gramoxone herbicide, Ortho-Paraquat, Para-SHOT, Parazone, Quick-Quat, Firestorm, Blanco, Bonfire Herbicide, Devour, and Helmquat are all aliases of manufacturer Syngenta’s weed killer. However, whether you know it as Gramoxone or Paraquat, the weed killer is actually banned or restricted in over 30 countries but remains one of the most popular commercial herbicides across the world.
What is the link between Paraquat and Parkinson’s Disease?
There have been concerns surrounding Paraquat Syngenta for several years. However, studies as early as 2009 have linked direct exposure to the toxic chemical found in Paraquat to cause neurological damage which may lead to Parkinson’s Disease. Studies in the years that followed further confirmed the link to neurological illness, with the Unified Parkinson’s Advocacy Council urging the EPA to end the use of Paraquat in July of 2017. Syngenta kept selling the herbicide anyway.
Parkinson’s Disease is irreversible, and symptoms worsen over time. Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease include:
- Hand tremors or shaking
- Muscle stiffness
- Difficulty speaking and soft or slurred speech
- Loss of balance
- Slowed movement
Parkinson’s Disease severely impairs the ability to move, which is detrimental to a farmer.
We are currently reviewing claims for the Paraquat lawsuit, contact us today to find out if you are eligible for compensation.
Paraquat poisoning has left too many farmers suffering from irreversible neurological damage. Syngenta failed to warn users of life-altering neurological damage Paraquat causes. This damage has caused agricultural workers to lose their source of income and for many, their family businesses. To add insult to injury, the cost to treat Parkinson’s Disease is not cheap, and without any source of revenue, these farmers are left with increasing debt and nowhere to turn. That’s where an experienced Paraquat attorney comes in, standing up to Syngenta to fight for compensation these agricultural workers desperately need and rightfully deserve.
