The chemical herbicide Paraquat is extremely popular in the agriculture industry, used on more than one hundred different types of crops throughout the United States. Unfortunately, this pesticide is also dangerously toxic to humans. Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to Paraquat has been linked to cases of Parkinson’s disease, a progressive nervous system disorder that affects motor function.

The emotional repercussions after a neurological disease can last a lifetime — not just for individuals but also for their families. If you suspect that Paraquat could be to blame for your diagnosis or health issues, you’ll need to begin the legal process to seek compensation. But you shouldn’t have to worry about navigating a complex legal process on top of the distress you’re already experiencing. 

At the Lopez Law Group, we’ve helped countless injured individuals and their families recover from a traumatic experience so they can get the compensation they deserve. Our Texas personal injury attorneys will build the strongest case possible to hold the negligent party responsible for their actions. We’ll represent you completely, so you can focus on what matters most — your health and well-being.

What to Know About Paraquat Parkinson’s Cases 

The National Institutes of Health conducted a study in 2011 showing that individuals who were exposed to the herbicide Paraquat were two and a half times more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease as a result. Syngenta, the Swiss manufacturer of Paraquat, countered the study, saying that individuals were actually less likely to develop the disease. However, Paraquat was eventually banned in 32 countries due to health concerns, and it was discovered that the pesticide had been banned for more than 20 years already in Switzerland — the very home of its manufacturer. 

Paraquat has been exposed as a toxic chemical, and it’s even more likely to lead to Parkinson’s disease when consumed or inhaled. Common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include:

  • Tremors
  • Slowed movement (bradykinesia)
  • Rigid muscles
  • Impaired posture and balance
  • Loss of automatic movements
  • Speech changes
  • Writing changes

Why Hire a Paraquat Parkinson’s Lawyer to Help with Your Case?

Even if you choose not to hire an attorney to resolve your case, consulting with an agricultural mass tort litigation lawyer gives you a clear understanding of your rights and options, which can significantly improve the outcome of your case. 

Filing a claim and managing a case can be difficult, especially when you are dealing with ongoing health issues. What’s more, negotiating with insurance companies by yourself can be challenging because insurance company employees are trained to settle claims for less than the costs of actual medical expenses and lost wages incurred. 

An experienced personal injury lawyer, however, will know how to protect your case and how to ensure that you receive the settlement you’re lawfully entitled to — from your own insurance provider as well as from that of the negligent party. In addition to legal counsel, a lawyer will serve as your educational resource, providing support with finances, medical care, and other issues relevant to your case.

How the Lopez Law Group Can Help 

If you’ve developed Parkinson’s disease, or are experiencing health issues that you suspect are linked to Paraquat exposure, you need a trusted advocate by your side who will fight to ensure that your rights are protected. We know that health issues or a disease diagnosis can be devastating, and we want to help ease your burden during this difficult time.

The car accident I had with my 5 year old daughter was one of the most horrific moments and experiences of my life. Fortunately, she was not injured but I had some back issues. I was living in McAllen at the time, but it was actually another attorney that recommend me to Mr. Lopez. Unlike other Attorneys or law groups, Mr. Lopez is more hands on when it came to taking care of my back issues. . His paralegals and secretaries Veronica and Giselle were always helpful. I never felt like I was bothering them and I always had very prompt if not immediate responses. My friend told me that it would take a long time to settle with an insurance company, but Mr. Lopez and his team were able to get money in my pocket within months. My car was completely fixed and they helped with a rental car as well. I was able to go to rehab, pain doctors and chiropractors until I felt better. This group and Mr, Lopez personally, were truly concerned with my well-being , health and compensation. I have recommended Mr. Lopez to all of my friends and family. They have all been grateful for my recommendations. I highly recommend Mr. Lopez as his office is smaller yet as strong or stronger as law offices that are located in San Antonio and Dallas

After doing a lot of research on attorneys in the area of Hidalgo County I chose The Lopez law firm. This was the first time I needed to consult any attorney. When I first consulted with Mr. Lopez and his team I never imagine my case would run only for one year. I am glad I chose Mr. Lopez as my attorney. He fought hard for my case. He was always very willing to meet my needs. At the end my case was won. If I ever need from them again I know they will be eager to help. Thank you Mr. Lopez and the Lopez law firm.
