Paraquat Lawsuits Filed Alleging Herbicide Caused Renal Failure & Parkinson's Disease

Plaintiffs from around the USA are submitting their claims against Syngenta - manufacturers of the Paraquat herbicide. These hard-working growers are making claims that they were unaware of the serious health risks associated with being exposed to the herbicide Paraquat, and some state that they have developed serious health conditions including Parkinson's.

Most Common Ways Farmers Are Exposed To Paraquat

These complaints are being filed by growers, farmers and agricultural workers who had several interactions with Paraquat that include: 

  • Exposure while mixing Paraquat
  • Exposure while loading Paraquat onto equipment for spraying
  • Exposure while applying/spraying Paraquat onto crops
  • Exposure while supervising others doing any of the above tasks
  • Exposure while working on the farm or in the field when Paraquat was being applied or sprayed

Our Paraquat attorneys are here 24/7 to accept calls from growers, farmers, agricultural workers, and even callers who live in close quarters to crops and farms where the dangerous chemical herbicide was used.

Our experienced lawyers will be summarizing various lawsuits as they are filed, on our Paraquat Claims Center blog.

Is This A Paraquat Class Action? 

No, this is not technically considered a class action paraquat lawsuit. We feel that class actions are more applicable when the damage to all consumers or members of the class is nearly identical. In this instance, the severity and extent of injuries vary greatly from farmer to farmer. From that perspective, we intend to file each case as its own lawsuit. 

What's A "Multi District Litigation" or "MDL"

An MDL in federal court occurs when the cases are consolidated for litigation purposes. All discovery can be distributed and shared throughout all of the cases, and most often occurs where there is a common defendant.  Various states have their own versions the federal court's Multi District Litigation in state court.

A Paraquat Multi District Litigation (MDL) has not yet been established in federal court. There are plaintiffs in the USA coming forward alleging that Syngenta's herbicide caused their Parkinson's disease (a neurodegenerative disorder) or end-stage kidney failure, and if there are a large volume then there could be an MDL.

What Does The Science Say? Does Exposure to Paraquat Cause These Health Conditions? Here Are The Studies:

All studies are cited below with information about the releasing body.

February 2011 - Farming and Movement Evaluation ("FAME") Study

Researchers from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, in conjunction with the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, conducted a study in February 2011 that suggested a link between exposure to Paraquat and similar herbicides and Parkinson's disease.

October 2012 - The Genetic Modification Of The Association Of Paraquat and Parkinson's Disease Study

A study was conducted on individuals who used Paraquat in October 2012 . The study followed participants to measure how many were later diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. The study concluded that farmers who used Paraquat, and who also had a specific genetic variation, had an increased risk to developing Parkinson's Disease. The study determined that those exposed to Paraquat were at an 11x greater risk for developing Parkinson's disease.

December 2016 - Nature Chemical Biology CRISPR Study

This study backs the findings by FAME referenced above and also found that Paraquat caused oxidative stress on brain cells and broke in December of 2016 where the outcome suggested that those exposed to Paraquat developed genes that could possibly result in developing Parkinson's disease. CRISPR is an advanced gene technology which can edit genes and is hailed as the future of medicine by many.

How Much Is My Paraquat Settlement Worth?

It is far too early to know at this stage in the litigation. A lot of discovery has to play out before we can really know the just compensation each and every plaintiff is due. Each case is also unique. These types of cases can take a long time to resolve - we are potentially talking several years until these cases come to an end. Our personal injury lawyers will need to prove a link between Paraquat and the medical conditions we allege in our lawsuits. We will need to provide and collect all medical expenses related to the conditions for every plaintiff. There's a lot of work going on in this case. We'll keep you up to speed on the lawsuit, and when it's time to value your claim, we'll be here to talk to you about that.

How Dangerous Is The Toxic Herbicide Paraquat?

Many suicide attempts are made with this weed killer. At a specific dose, the chemical can cause heart failure, slow movement, liver failure, and severe health issues, which can ultimately lead to long term disability or death.

What If You Have Not Been Diagnosed With Parkinson's Disease But Have Tremors?

Our attorneys have been asked if having tremors will qualify you for a claim. Tremors may indicate your Parkinson's disease is undiagnosed. Our firm will work with you to ensure you get fully evaluated to determine your conditions. Tremors can be fast twitching or a slowness of movement of your extremities.
