Makers of herbicides and other chemicals have a duty to provide safe products that are free from defects and that are not unreasonably dangerous. If there are risks of harm associated with a particular product, the manufacturer must also provide adequate warnings.
If the manufacturer fails to fulfill this duty, it could be legally responsible for injuries caused by the herbicide.
If you or a loved one has subsequently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease after exposure to the herbicide, you may be entitled to recover money for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages.

What Is Paraquat Poisoning?
First used in the 1960s, paraquat dichloride (more commonly known as paraquat) is a highly toxic herbicide used commercially to prevent weed and grass growth near farms and crops. In fact, paraquat is so toxic that a single sip can be lethal — and there’s no known antidote.
Paraquat poisoning can occur if an individual:
Inhales or ingests paraquat
Comes into contact with sprayed plants
Gets paraquat on their skin
Mixes, loads, or applies paraquat
