Paraquat Exposure Has Been Linked to Parkinson’s Disease
Have You Been Exposed to Products That Contain Paraquat?
Paraquat Attorneys Helping Farmers & Agricultural Workers with Parkinson’s Disease
If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease after exposure to herbicides that contain Paraquat, including Gramoxone, you may be eligible for compensation.
Several experiments support a direct relationship between exposure to Paraquat and Parkinson’s disease. In one study published in 2018, Canadian researchers found that exposure to Paraquat increased the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease by about 250 percent.
Though it has been more than a decade since the health risks associated with Paraquat were first discovered, it is still being manufactured and sold in the U.S. The Ferraro Law Firm is helping agricultural workers hold the chemical manufacturers accountable for selling and manufacturing Paraquat despite knowing how harmful it is to public health.
