Paraquat Lawsuit Attorneys
For decades, paraquat has been a widely used herbicide in the U.S. Research now shows just how dangerous this product can be for those who have direct contact with it, yet its use is still common in the U.S., endangering agricultural workers across the country.
People exposed to paraquat have an increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, a debilitating condition that can be incredibly costly to treat. However, for anyone exposed to paraquat who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, legal options are available to get compensation.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease and Paraquat Exposure
Several studies have linked paraquat use to both Parkinson’s disease and Parkinson’s disease-like symptoms. Parkinson’s disease affects sufferers in unique ways, so it’s important to understand the wide range of symptoms people experience with this disease.
A few of the most common examples of Parkinson’s disease include:
- Tremors, often in the fingers and hands
- Slowed movements
- Impaired posture and balance
- Major changes in speech patterns
- Stiff muscles
- Difficulty performing basic, automatic movements like smiling and blinking
If you’ve worked with paraquat and you now experience any of the above symptoms, contact your doctor immediately. If you need legal help determining your eligibility for compensation, contact the Gallagher Law Firm today.

Many of the workers filing claims against paraquat manufacturers applied the product to crops, but many others simply worked near crops treated with paraquat. Regardless of your specific role as an agricultural worker, you deserve compensation if your Parkinson’s disease diagnose is linked to paraquat exposure.
Parkinson’s disease costs sufferers, their families, and the U.S. government more than $50 billion every year. Many of those suffering from Parkinson’s disease are forced to quit their jobs at an early age, making it even more challenging to meet their medical expenses and basic costs of living.
Don’t pay the price for the negligence of paraquat manufacturers. Now is the time to take a stand to get the payment you’re entitled to.

The Devastating Effects of Paraquat
Though most people who work with paraquat know that it’s deadly when ingested, many haven’t been informed of the risks associated with simply being exposed to it. Workers who have been exposed to paraquat have up to a six-fold increase in their chances of developing Parkinson’s disease compared to the general population.
Because of these dangers, over 30 countries, including the European Union and China, have banned paraquat. In the U.S., legislation banning paraquat has been proposed, though the herbicide remains in use in farms around the country.
