Who qualifies for a paraquat lawsuit?

Home » FAQs » Who qualifies for a paraquat lawsuit?

Since the 1960s, paraquat has been used on agricultural fields around the world as an extremely effective herbicide. However, paraquat is extremely toxic and has been linked to an increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease with repeated exposures. If you or a loved one has developed Parkinson’s after using or being exposed to paraquat, you could be entitled to financial compensation. Not everyone who was exposed to paraquat is eligible for compensation, however. The eligibility criteria for inclusion in the paraquat mass tort action include

  • significant exposure to paraquat
  • a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease
  • filing your claim within the statute of limitations, which is generally a few years after Parkinson’s diagnosis
