People who worked in agriculture developed Parkinson’s Disease after exposed to Paraquat.



Farm and Agricultural workers who developed Parkinson’s Disease after mixing, spraying, or being exposed to PARAQUAT may qualify for significant financial compensation.

A series of important studies found that commercial agricultural workers, including farm workers, golf course maintenance crews and greenhouse workers, who were certified and trained to use Paraquat, as well as bystanders exposed to spray drift, may have suffered serious injury due to the toxicity of the herbicide.

The makers of Paraquat herbicide REFUSED to include warnings on the label, increasing the risk of injuries from Paraquat exposure for farm workers, golf course maintenance crews, horticulturalists, and others who used or were exposed to the toxic chemical.

Data Linking Paraquat and Parkinson’s Disease is Overwhelming

Paraquat is often used to control weeds in soybean, corn and other crops, grapes and orchards, pasture and hay fields, and to defoliate cotton. Studies show that workers who mixed, sprayed, or were exposed to the chemical are at higher risk for developing Parkinson’s Disease.

In fact, a 2011 Study by the National Institutes of Health and Parkinson’s Institute surveyed farmers in North Carolina and Iowa and determined these farmers were 2 ½ times more likely to develop Parkinson’s if they were exposed to Paraquat or Rotenone. And, in 2012, a study found that individuals with certain genetics who were exposed to Paraquat were 11 times more likely to develop Parkinson’s Disease.
