Paraquat Lawsuit

The first lawsuit regarding the effects of paraquat was filed in St. Clair County, Illinois, on October 6, 2017. The lawsuit alleged that the defendants, Sygenta, Growmark, and later Chevron Chemical, had manufactured, distributed, and sold paraquat under the name Gramoxone since 1964. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of farmers and agricultural workers who were exposed to paraquat and subsequently developed Parkinson’s.

Multiple similar lawsuits were also filed in California. These lawsuits have now been consolidated in Contra Costa County. While filing a lawsuit may seem like a daunting step to take, it is an extremely important one on your path to recovery. At Gerling Law, we can discuss your options with you and help you determine whether and how to file a paraquat lawsuit.

Why File a Paraquat Lawsuit?

Parkinson’s disease can have devastating impacts on your life, from medical expenses to emotional trauma. However, paraquat lawsuit attorneys can help. Depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, a paraquat lawsuit might entitle you to recover monetary compensation for:

  • Past and future medical expenses related to your Parkinson’s disease;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of future earning capacity;
  • Emotional trauma;
  • Loss of consortium; and
  • Pain and suffering.

Of course, no amount of money can reverse your Parkinson’s diagnosis. However, these types of monetary damages can go a long way toward improving your quality of life and getting back to a sense of normalcy. A paraquat lawsuit attorney can help you achieve these goals.
