Paraquat Parkinson's Lawsuit: Statute of Limitations [By State]

Why Is There A Paraquat Lawsuit?

Paraquat is a chemical agent most commonly used as an herbicide.

Although it was first produced more than 130 years ago, its application as an herbicide did not become popularized until the mid-20th century.

Paraquat is now used as an herbicide agent on a range of more than 100 different types of crops.

Paraquat has been found to put those exposed to the chemical at a higher risk for Parkinson’s Disease.

In 2011, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) conducted a study – the Farming and Movement Evaluation (FAME) – exploring claims that exposure to the popular herbicide Paraquat could be linked to a greater risk of developing Parkinson’s disease and found that the herbicide was linked to a 2.5x higher risk of developing the disease.
