What is Paraquat Lawsuit?

Paraquat lawsuit

Paraquat (paraquat dichloride) is an extremely poisonous chemical that is utilized to kill grass, weeds and other unwanted plants. It is applied via spraying. Despite being banned in a number of nations, Paraquat is one of the most commonly used industrial herbicides across the world.

Paraquat is legal within the U.S., but the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classified it as an “restricted use” chemical. That means Paraquat is only available for purchase and used by licensed commercial consumers (mostly the commercial farming community).

What is Paraquat Used For?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified Paraquat as a “restricted-use pesticide,” which means that Paraquat isn’t allowed to be used for recreational purposes. Paraquat is only available for use commercially by registered applicators.

Paraquat is utilized as a herbicide as well as a herbicide to stop the growth of grass and weeds close to crop fields on small and large estates, commercial farms, orchards, plantations, and other orchards. Available under the brands Gramoxone and Ortho Paraquat. It is an effective alternative for weeds resistant to glyphosate, an ingredient used in Monsanto’s Roundup.

Despite the well-known dangers of this chemical, it is among the top frequently employed herbicides worldwide.

If you’ve been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease after living near or working on a farm, you may be eligible to file a California paraquat lawsuit

The best way to determine if you’re eligible to file a lawsuit against manufacturers of the restricted-use herbicide is to schedule a free no-obligation case review with the attorneys at THE JUSTICE NOW. We can help determine your eligibility and discuss the facts of your case so you’ll know how to proceed.

You may be familiar with pesticides and herbicides that you were exposed to if you worked on farms in the past. Paraquat may have been used in your area, so you might not be aware of what toxic chemicals you were exposed.

A law firm that has a track record of success in handling these cases is the best choice. Our lawyers can help you investigate your case and prove that paraquat exposure has caused serious health problems if you lived on or near farms.

There are many reasons to file a paraquat lawsuit. 

A lawsuit can help you:

  • Secure compensation to cover the cost of medical bills and other expenses 
  • Spread awareness of the dangers that have been linked to paraquat 

A Paraquat lawyer will almost always represent you under a “contingency fee” agreement, which means any legal fees owed to the lawyer will be paid out of any settlement or court judgment you receive. In short, if you don’t receive any money from Bayer, your lawyer doesn’t receive payment for his or her legal services. But it’s important to make sure you understand the fine print of your contract with your lawyer.

Easy! Just fill the form given on this page to check whether you qualify for lawsuit or not. Our Executives will call and ask few question related to your case and if everything went well. You will be assigned a lawyer. Who will fight your lawsuit. No upfront cost.

The amount of compensation a person is entitled to in a paraquat claim can vary from case to case and will depend on the extent of the injury. However, many experts believe that paraquat settlement payouts can range from $100,000 to $150,000.

Diligent Team

I was stuck! My wife’s cancer was discovered due to J&J Talcum but was denied coverage by the company. My appeal was denied. After that, Team of The Justice Now was involved. They fought with me. My lawyer was hard-working, thorough and determined and won my case. I’m not sure where I’d be in the absence of The Justice Now.
