Paraquat Linked to Parkinson’s Disease – Know Your Rights

Oct 7, 2022 | Mass Tort Claims

The article was Last Updated on

If you or a loved one developed Parkinson’s disease after using the herbicide Paraquat, you may be entitled to compensation. Numerous lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of Paraquat, alleging that the companies knew or should have known about the risks of developing Parkinson’s disease but failed to warn consumers. If you believe you have a claim, it’s important to know your rights and what to expect from the legal process.

How Does Paraquat Work?

Paraquat is a broad-spectrum herbicide used to kill plants and grasses. It is one of the most commonly used herbicides in the United States and is often used in agricultural settings. When someone is exposed to Paraquat, it can enter the body through the skin, lungs, or digestive system. Once inside the body, Paraquat attacks cells and prevents them from producing energy, which leads to cell death. Unfortunately, this mechanism of action also makes Paraquat toxic to humans.

Exposure to Paraquat has been linked to an increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative neurological disorder that affects a person’s movement and speech. The disease is caused by the death of nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine. Dopamine is a chemical messenger that allows nerve cells to communicate with each other. When dopamine-producing cells die, it causes a breakdown in communication between cells, which leads to symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease, and there is no way to slow its progression. Early diagnosis and treatment can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life, but there is no way to prevent or reverse the damage caused by the disease.
