Office documentsThe dangers of exposure to paraquat have been widely documented for many years. However, this did little to stop paraquat manufacturers from marketing and selling their highly toxic herbicides. To increase profit margins, manufacturers of paraquat chose to negligently disregard the health and safety of thousands of agricultural workers, herbicide applicators, mixers, and families living near commercial farms. Anyone who has been frequently subjected to paraquat runs a 600% higher risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, the American Journal of Epidemiology determined that those who resided within 1,600 feet of where the chemical was sprayed faced a 75% greater risk of suffering from neurodegenerative disorders.

Ingestion of the smallest traces of paraquat can cause the failure of the kidneys and liver, esophageal strictures, cardiac arrest, and severe scarring of the lungs. The American Council on Science and Health found that paraquat’s relative toxicity in comparison to glyphosate, a common chemical found in other herbicides, ranges from 33-250. If you, or a loved one, have developed Parkinson’s after coming into contact with paraquat, our veteran lawyers strongly encourage you to contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. as soon as possible.

Careless Companies Responsible for Manufacturing of Paraquat

Starting in 2017, hundreds of claims have been filed against manufacturers of paraquat. Consequently, a broad range of confidential documents and testimonies from whistle-blowers have helped divulge how manufacturers manipulated records and implemented inadequate safety precautions to keep profiting at the public’s expense. Over and over again, classified company files have shown that these companies were aware of the accompanying health risks. If only proper warnings and handling instructions had been made available, tens of thousands of innocent agricultural laborers and other victims could have avoided ravaging illnesses. However, companies continued to prioritize their massive revenues over consumers’ health. Some of the most notorious paraquat manufacturers include:

  1. Helm Agro;
  2. Growmark;
  3. Drexel Chemical Company;
  4. Chevron Phillips Chemical;
  5. United Phosphorus Limited;
  6. Syngenta;
  7. Altitude Crop Innovations, LLC;
  8. Sinon USA, Inc.;
  9. Adama Group; and
  10. Innvictis Crop Care LLC.



Filing a Lawsuit Against the Liable Paraquat Manufacturer

Law documentsLaw firms throughout the country have been advertising for plaintiffs, seeking to draw in thousands of victims who were exposed to paraquat and developed Parkinson’s. Cases already filed have accused some of the above manufacturers of knowing about the health risks related to their products. Instead of warning farmers, manufacturers were too busy concealing the dangers of paraquat and denying all connections. Manufacturers had a legal obligation to ensure that their herbicides did not cause significant harm. After suffering irreversible health damage caused by paraquat’s toxicity, victims exposed can hold manufacturers liable under the following conditions:

  1. Paraquat manufacturers acted in irresponsible, careless, and reckless manners;
  2. The herbicide was dangerously defective by design;
  3. These companies knew or should have known their herbicides were highly toxic, and exposure could cause Parkinson’s;
  4. Producers failed to warn the public of the hazardous and considerable health consequences of paraquat exposure;
  5. Paraquat products were negligently designed and marketed to consumers; and
  6. Manufacturers neglected to take reasonable measures to prevent victims from suffering irreversible harm.

Despite being completely banned in at least 31 countries, Syngenta and other companies continued to sell their poisonous herbicides throughout the United States. Suppose that you or someone close to you suffered harmful effects from paraquat exposure; you may be able to sue those responsible. By placing profits above people, tens of thousands of victims were continuously exposed to this treacherous substance that caused life-altering diseases and many other health problems.
