Paraquat Cases in Northern Mississippi

Pursuing Fair and Just Compensation on Your Behalf

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), paraquat is a toxic chemical that is frequently used for weed control. Despite its highly toxic nature, paraquat is still one of the most widely used herbicides. Exposure to it can result in a variety of severe symptoms, long-term health effects, and even death.

Since the 1980s, however, paraquat has especially been linked to Parkinson’s disease. Extensive research has shown that exposure to paraquat within 1,600 feet of a home increases the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. If you developed this disease due to paraquat exposure, the legal team at Vollor Law Firm, P.A. in Northern Mississippi can assist you in securing fair and just compensation.

Signs of Paraquat Exposure

There are several immediate signs of exposure to paraquat, which you should be aware of. Depending on the amount of paraquat to which you were exposed, your symptoms may be more severe.

Below are some of the signs of paraquat exposure:

  • Confusion
  • Fast heart rate
  • Liver failure
  • Heart failure
  • Lung scarring
  • Respiratory failure
  • Muscle weakness
  • Seizures
  • Pulmonary edema

These symptoms may appear within a few hours to a few days after exposure. Ingestion is the most common form of exposure to paraquat. However, exposure may also occur on your clothes or body.

People with tremors or shakes should be investigated and signed up for paraquat claims if they are aware of exposure to the chemical. Even if you have not officially been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, it is important to get the ball rolling on your case and figure out if you have a claim. Paraquat is used widely in agricultural weed control and anyone living near agricultural fields and farms could have been exposed. Our team will fight tirelessly on your behalf to obtain the compensation you need to pay for past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.
