Why should I file a paraquat lawsuit?

There are many reasons to file a lawsuit if you’re suffering as a result of being exposed to paraquat.

Namely, paraquat lawsuits can help you:

  • Secure compensation to cover medical bills and other expenses
  • Hold the companies that exposed you to paraquat responsible
  • Spread awareness of the dangers associated with paraquat, which helps others at risk

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease after working on or living near a commercial farm, you may be eligible to file a paraquat lawsuit. Get a free legal case evaluation today.

How do I prove I was exposed to paraquat?

Paraquat exposure may be easier to prove in some cases than in others. For instance, if you’ve worked on an industrial farm in the past, you may already be familiar with the pesticides you were exposed to.

But if you just happened to live near a commercial farm, you may be completely unaware of what toxic chemicals you’ve inadvertently been exposed to.

This is where a paraquat law firm with a proven track record can help. If you’ve lived near an industrial farm or worked on one and have since been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, our paraquat attorneys may be able to help you prove your
case.

How much does a paraquat lawsuit cost?

When you work with Sokolove Law, the legal team that represents you works on what’s known as a contingency basis, meaning you don’t have to pay any fees upfront or hourly rates. Your paraquat lawyer will take a portion of the settlement or
verdict results only if your case is successful.

Who is at risk of paraquat exposure?

Paraquat exposure predominantly affects:

  • Farmers, farmworkers, landscapers, and agricultural workers
  • Residents of rural areas near farmland sprayed with paraquat
  • Anyone who works with or around professional-grade pesticides

According to one 2012 study, people who use paraquat and have a certain genetic variation are 11 times more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease, making some more at risk from exposure than others.

If you’ve developed Parkinson’s after living near or working on an industrial farm, you may be entitled to compensation. Learn what legal options may be available to you by getting a free legal consultation today.
