Over the past two months, we have detailed how dangerous Paraquat is. It has caused significant problems, and those affected should recognize their legal rights and options moving forward. With Paraquat lawsuits, two different types of cases can arise: certified applicator lawsuits and drift lawsuits.
It’s vital to understand where you may pursue compensation and how our team can provide you with the solid legal counsel you need to safeguard your rights.
Certified Applicator Cases
In 2017, the EPA issued a mandate determining that only licensed and certified applicators can mix, load, or use Paraquat. These individuals are subject to exposure and at higher risk of developing symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease.
Certified applicators have legal rights to file a case for the damages they sustain because of their exposure to Paraquat. These are the cases we have started taking across the country to ensure that our clients get the representation they deserve during a challenging situation.
Drift cases can arise when the chemicals travel from the application location to other nearby areas. Neighbors can experience the same exposure. These types of cases can be much more challenging to prove, so it’s vital to speak with a legal team to understand your rights. You want to get someone who can look at the evidence and determine how to show the correlation between drifting Paraquat and Parkinson’s.
At GoldenbergLaw, PLLC, we work to provide our clients with the knowledge and resources they need to pursue compensation. We have focused on helping certified applicators who, despite training and licensing, were subject to Paraquat exposure and were diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease or have been experiencing symptoms related to Parkinson’s Disease.
