Paraquat is a highly toxic chemical herbicide primarily used to control weeds and grasses. A clear medical link has been established between exposure to paraquat and a number of illnesses, including Parkinson’s disease.

Paraquat is marketed throughout the U.S. under various brand names. These include Cyclone, Helmquat, Parazone, and Gramoxone — which is sold by the agricultural company Syngenta.

Crops paraquat is most commonly used on include:

  • Soybeans
  • Corn
  • Cotton
  • Alfalfa
  • Orchards and Grapes
  • Pasture

The herbicide has been banned in 32 countries. Its dangers are well known. To mix, load, or apply paraquat, individuals must now obtain special training, beyond just earning their Restricted Use Pesticide applicator license.

According to the EPA, “the paraquat training module emphasizes the importance of handling paraquat safely because of its extreme toxicity.”

The states where paraquat is most commonly used are:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Missouri
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and the person with Parkinson’s has worked on OR lived near a farming community at some point in their lives,  you may be entitled to compensation. Our firm is pursuing civil lawsuits to obtain compensation .  Call 303-990-5308 now for a FREE consultation and representation at NO COST to you.

We are accepting cases from ALL STATES.
