Pennsylvania Paraquat Lawsuit

Many industrial and commercial farm properties rely on powerful herbicides to protect their crops from insects and other pests. One of the most popular herbicides, paraquat, is famous for its extreme strength, but recent evidence has shown that the product’s power is causing more harm than good. According to a scientific study, individuals who are exposed to paraquat are 150% more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease at some point in their life, which isn’t listed as a side effect on the warning label of the product. However, this study doesn’t provide groundbreaking evidence, as scientists have already known of the herbicide’s danger since a study conducted in 2011 showed that farmers who use paraquat were twice as likely to develop adverse health concerns. Despite the concerns, the manufacturer of paraquat, Syngenta, has yet to acknowledge the risks associated with their product, causing innocent farmers and their families to unknowingly jeopardize their health.

Morgan & Morgan stands with the Pennsylvania farmers who were impacted by Paraquat. Defective and dangerous products enter the market every day and cause harm to the consumers that use them, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept the consequences. Farmers have already begun to file lawsuits against Syngenta for their negligent behavior, and if you developed Parkinson’s disease or any other health concerns after using paraquat, you can, too. Although compensation can’t reverse the damage, it can help you support your condition in the future and, most importantly, hold the negligent manufacturer accountable for their injustice.

Who Is at Risk of Paraquat Exposure?

Paraquat is designated as a “restricted use pesticide,” meaning that only farmers and agricultural workers who hold special licenses can use the product legally. However, paraquat is heavily used in the agricultural industry, and many farmers across the country have used it for pest control on their farms. Exposure is most likely to occur in the following ways:

  • Mixing or loading paraquat
  • Spraying paraquat
  • Maintaining tanks and equipment used to spray paraquat
  • Spending time in fields where paraquat was sprayed

Paraquat is an aerosol, and if there are high winds in the areas where it’s used, it can drift into neighboring communities and contaminate the air. This has caused innocent families and children to unknowingly inhale chemicals that will seriously jeopardize their health and wellbeing, which is especially unacceptable when they don’t use the toxic product themselves.

How Do I Know if I’m at Risk of Developing Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s disease can take years to develop after your initial exposure to paraquat, which can make it difficult to know when you should seek medical treatment. However, there are early warning signs of Parkinson’s disease that are shown through your motor skills, so you should visit a doctor if you notice any of the following:

  • Hand tremors
  • Prolonged or extreme stiffness
  • Difficulty with body movements
  • Loss of balance
  • Difficulty walking (slow gait, shuffling)
  • Difficulty or soft speaking
  • Reduced facial expression, blank stare
  • Drooling
  • Suddenly small handwriting
  • Trembling
  • Whole-body fatigue and dizziness
  • Amnesia/confusion in evening hours
  • Disturbances in sleep
  • Anxiety or apathy

Although Parkinson’s is a lifelong condition, it doesn’t mean your life is over. There are many different therapies and treatments available that can help improve your quality of life in the future. If you believe that additional rehabilitation services will help you in your situation, speak with your attorney about how to pursue compensation for future treatment through your lawsuit.

FAQ

Pennsylvania Paraquat Lawsuit FAQs

  • Do I Qualify for a Paraquat Lawsuit?

    Syngenta’s failure to disclose the side effects of their product has caused families worldwide to endure watching a loved one lose their motor control to Parkinson’s disease. Not only that, but they’ve continued to act unethically despite scientific evidence that clearly shows the danger of their product, allowing more and more farmers to unknowingly purchase a product that could endanger their wellbeing. Their actions aren’t just unethical, they’re illegal, and those who were harmed by their negligence could be eligible to recover the damages they sustained. 

    At Morgan & Morgan, we understand how important it is to receive the fullest extent of the compensation you’re entitled to. Without it, you’ll be forced to pay for the damages out of your own pocket, which is unfair considering you purchased the product without knowledge of the risks. Our Pennsylvania paraquat attorneys are backed by the resources of America’s largest personal injury firm, meaning that we have the capability to hold out until your compensation accurately reflects the true value of your damages.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
