Case Overview

*Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Farmers and agricultural workers have filed lawsuits in courts around the country alleging Paraquat’s manufacturer, Syngenta Group, failed to warn them about the life-altering neurological effects Paraquat caused. Motley Rice toxic exposure attorneys are reviewing the allegations.

Although banned or restricted in more than 30 countries, toxic weed killer Paraquat, remains one of the most popular commercial herbicides. Due to its toxicity, Paraquat is restricted in the U.S., and can only be used by licensed applicators who have completed training on how to mix, load and apply the herbicide. As a result, licensed applicators and the people who work for them are most at risk for health problems caused by toxic exposure.

Paraquat and Parkinson’s

Exposure to Paraquat can cause severe health effects with some studies finding “significant associations” with Parkinson’s Disease. Common Parkinson’s Disease symptoms include, but are not limited to:

Hand tremors
Loss of balance and/or difficulty moving and walking
Trouble speaking
