What’s the average settlement for a paraquat lawsuit?

Home » FAQs » What’s the average settlement for a paraquat lawsuit?

Recent health studies have shown that the popular weed killer paraquat, also known as Gramoxone and marketed under a number of brand names, contains toxic chemicals that could lead to Parkinson’s disease and related conditions. Because of these risks, multiple lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of paraquat alleging that they knew or should’ve known about those risks, and are liable for victims’ injuries.

While these paraquat lawsuits are still in early stages, similar cases, such as the Roundup lawsuit, have led experts to predict that paraquat settlements could average between $100,000 to $150,000 per plaintiff. Of course, the amount each plaintiff receives will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of their injury, how well they’re able to prove that paraquat caused their injury, and other legal factors.
