Fight to Demand the Highest Compensation for Victims Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease or Other Adverse Health Effects After Being Exposed to Paraquat in Albany, New York, and Throughout the Capital Region.

Paraquat-Related Illness Attorneys Since the early 1960s, paraquat dichloride (paraquat) has been one of the most popular weed killers used throughout the United States. Paraquat is sold by different manufacturers under various trade names, such as Bonfire, Helmquat, Blanco, and Devour. The chemical substance is known to be extremely toxic to anyone unfortunate enough to come into contact with it. There is overwhelming clinical data linking paraquat to the development of Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, countless deaths have been caused by the accidental ingestion of the herbicide. Paraquat manufacturers, like Growmark and Syngenta, continue to deny the relationship between their products and Parkinson’s. One study uncovered teen and young adults exposed to the herbicide, depending upon the duration, had 200 to 600 percent higher odds of developing Parkinson’s disease.

Even with all the scientific evidence revealing the dangers of paraquat, use throughout the country is at an all-time high. To protect their profit margins, paraquat manufacturers have elected to recklessly ignore the health and safety of hundreds of thousands of farms, pesticide mixers, and families living near no-till farms. Starting in 2017, hundreds of claims have been filed against manufacturers on behalf of victims who developed Parkinson’s after being exposed to paraquat. If you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s after coming into contact with paraquat, although no amount of money can reverse the damage to your brain tissue, you may be eligible to file a product liability lawsuit.
