Mississippi Paraquat Claims for Parkinson’s’ Patients
We’re Here to Fight Patients Who Suffered Neurological Damage and
Paraquat is highly toxic herbicide used to control weeds and grass, but
can also be harmful to humans. If inhaled, it could result in poisoning.
Long-term exposure to Paraquat can cause neurological damage. Farmworkers
and others who live near sites of frequent Paraquat use are more likely
to develop Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson’s is a terrible disease. For any victims and families who
end up in this situation due to Paraquat exposure, we want to help you
find justice. Paraquat has already banned in 32 countries and its use
is only allowed in limited places and circumstances. If you believe you
or a loved one developed Parkinson’s as a result of exposure to
Paraquat, ask us how we can help.
Call Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. at (601) 869-0696 for your
free consultation. Our lawyers are here to offer honest and compassionate
counsel to see if you qualify to pursue a Paraquat claim.
Where Paraquat Exposure Happens
Paraquat can be used on more than 100 crops including:
- Vegetables and other crops
Paraquat is administered as a spray, which means workers can inhale the
chemical. Anyone who lives or works near areas with heavy Paraquat use
may also be exposed to a dangerous amount of the chemical.
Potential victims of dangerous Paraquat exposure include farmers or agricultural
workers; commercial growers; groundskeepers and gardeners; landscapers;
individuals or communities who live near farms, railroads, roads or surrounding
areas that are in close proximity to those using Paraquat to maintain
their farms or properties.
