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.
If you’ve been exposed to paraquat and subsequently developed Parkinson’s Disease, you may qualify to participate in a lawsuit.
The statute of limitations, or time period in which you’re able to file a lawsuit, differs by state and is set from the time you receive a Parkinson’s diagnosis.
The statute of limitations is NOT set from when you were exposed to the chemical.
Above is a map outlining the statute of limitations for Paraquat exposure lawsuits by state.
