Persons who have been exposed to the highly toxic herbicide paraquat are at risk for developing Parkinson's disease. Exposure to paraquat may happen on the job, in agricultural or road maintenance settings, or it may occur simply as a result of environmental exposure. The manufacturer, Syngenta, has been aware for decades of the risks and side effects posed by exposure to paraquat. Corporate leaders have a responsibility to understand the safety and risks of their products and adequately warn the public. Critics say Syngenta has prioritized profits over consumer safety and must be held accountable for negligence and failure to warn.
Individuals and family members of individuals who have developed Parkinson's disease and have a history of paraquat exposure are seeking clarification of the qualifications required to participate in a Paraquat Parkinson's lawsuit. Our law firm offers free, no-obligation, confidential consultations to anyone who feels they may have a claim, but we have outlined the basic qualifications in this section. In general, these are factors that are considered in each Paraquat Parkinson's lawsuit claim.
For persons and family members of persons who meet these qualifications, it is likely you will be eligible to file a paraquat lawsuit for Parkinson's Disease. There are multiple reasons to file a claim. First, paraquat lawyers believe individuals who have suffered from Paraquat Parkinson's disease may be eligible for compensation for the expense of medical treatment, pain, suffering, and loss resulting from the condition. More meaningful than that to some is the opportunity to hold a large corporation accountable for patient safety and dishonest business practices. Critics say Syngenta has failed to warn consumers of the many serious paraquat side effects for decades, putting millions at risk for serious health problems in favor of corporate profits.
