Reno Paraquat Lawsuits
Claims for Parkinson's Disease

Paraquat is a herbicide commonly used as a weed and grass killer, but it has also been linked to cases of Parkinson’s disease in those exposed to it. If you or a family member were diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and are often exposed to herbicides, you could be eligible to file a Paraquat lawsuit in Reno .

What Do We Know About the Paraquat Lawsuits in Reno ?

Paraquat was introduced as a weed and grass killer in the 1960s and it is still used as one of the most common herbicides around the world today. It wasn’t until the last 20 years that the health risks of exposure to Paraquat have been adequately explored and relayed to those who have used it for decades.

After becoming aware that Paraquat can be toxic even at low doses, the EPA made Paraquat a RUP or Restricted use Pesticide so that only certified applicators could purchase and use Paraquat, but the decades of common use have already taken their toll on thousands of those who work with or around Paraquat. One study in the American Journal of Epidemiology in 2009 also found that those living within 550 yards of Paraquat exposure increased their chances of developing Parkinson’s disease by 75%.

This and numerous other studies have linked Paraquat to Parkinson’s disease and other serious health risks. It wasn’t until March 2016 that the EPA finally recognized the health risks associated with Paraquat.

Those who have used Paraquat as a weed and grass killer and are exhibiting signs of Parkinson’s disease or other health risks are entitled to compensation through a Paraquat lawsuit in Reno because the manufacturer of the herbicide has not adequately disclosed the risks of developing these conditions.

What Injuries & Side Effects Result from Paraquat?

Although only certified and trained workers are able to purchase and use Paraquat, not enough information is provided to these workers about the health risks of Paraquat exposure. The toxic chemical can enter a person’s system in a few ways:
Through skin absorption
Through cuts and skin abrasions
Breathing it in
Ingestion of the chemical

Direct ingestion or inhaling of the chemical results in poisoning symptoms that appear very quickly such as nausea, vomiting, and difficulty breathing. Within a few weeks a person might also experience multiple organ failure. Even if someone does not consume Paraquat, proximity exposure to the chemical can still have very serious side effects and health risks including a well known connection to Parkinson’s disease.

Parkinson’s disease is not just a disease that can be inherited, exposure to pesticides and herbicides is a leading risk factor. When a person is exposed to even small amounts of Paraquat, it causes degeneration and death of important cells due to a lack of oxygenation. This breakdown of cellular structures can increase a person’s chances of developing Parkinson’s disease.

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic brain disorder that slowly breaks down your body’s major movement functions, resulting in tremors, stiffness, decrease in coordination, and other seriously debilitating symptoms. There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease and treatments often include a variety of medications and surgeries. Parkinson’s disease is currently the 14th leading cause of death in the United States.

What Compensation is Recoverable in a Paraquat Lawsuit in Reno ?

The link between Parkinson’s disease and Paraquat use was not properly disclosed to those who used it for decades even though it was known to the manufacturers. The financial and emotional burden of living with Parkinson’s disease after exposure to Paraquat can be insurmountable but filing a Paraquat lawsuit can be your best bet for recompense. The amount of compensation that is recoverable in a Paraquat lawsuit is not yet known, but the more people who join into a class action lawsuit against manufacturers, the more likely that a favorable result for victims will occur.

The Fees & Costs of a Paraquat Lawsuit in Reno .

If you’d like to explore the option of seeking damages in a Paraquat lawsuit, you need to find an experienced law firm to represent you. If you live in Reno , search for law firms that provide low or no cost case evaluations. The costs of hiring an Paraquat attorney vary from firm to firm but traditionally, the amount that a law firm charges is based on how much they are able to recover for you.

Have there been Financial Settlements Involving Paraquat?

So far, the most well known lawsuit filed in 2017 against the manufacturers of Paraquat, Syngenta and Growmark, is still in the process of settlement. The defendants in that case are farm owners, workers, and laborers who developed Parkinson’s disease after Paraquat use. Hundreds of additional lawsuits are expected to be filed in the coming years after more information is spread about the connection between Parkinson’s disease and Paraquat. If you live in Reno and think that your case is legitimate and could contribute to a class action lawsuit, contact an Reno Paraquat lawyer to file a Paraquat lawsuit.

Have there been any Paraquat Recalls or Warnings?

The connection between Paraquat and Parkinson's disease was not widely known to the public until recently and no major recalls or warnings have been provided to the users of it. To obtain and use Paraquat, a worker has to be certified but the dangers of using Paraquat are not properly disclosed during these training sessions. In 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, promised to research the connection between Parkinson’s disease and Paraquat but no recalls or warnings have resulted from this. Currently, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Toxicology Program (or NTP) is also reviewing the connection between Parkinson's disease and Paraquat. They are attempting to use the numerous studies that have been published on the subject to map the evidence of the association.

If you have developed Parkinson’s Disease after exposure to Paraquat, we believe that you are entitled to financial compensation due to the manufacturer’s lack of adequate warning of the harmful side effects of Paraquat. To file a Paraquat lawsuit in Reno , contact an lawyer.
