Lawsuit Legal News

Kansas City, MO – The Paraquat lawsuit has attracted attention from a broad spectrum of society due to the implications it carries. Many farmers and agricultural workers who were exposed to Paraquat have reportedly developed Parkinson’s disease, leading to this legal battle.

People in contact with paraquat over long periods of time are the most likely to be harmed by this substance.

This high-risk group includes:

  • Licensed paraquat applicators,
  • Crop dusting pilots,
  • Farm workers, and
  • People who live next to industrial, agricultural areas.

Experts have identified at least four ways paraquat exposure can occur:

  1. Herbicide drift. When paraquat is sprayed on a parcel of land, the droplets can drift through the air in hot and humid conditions, even without strong wind.
  2. Herbicide overspray. If an applicator makes a mistake or applies paraquat in heavy wind, the spray can cover adjoining areas they did not mean to spray.
  3. Herbicide runoff. Paraquat can seep into the ground and contaminate the soil and nearby water sources. Paraquat can poison adjoining property owners and others downstream from the area that was sprayed through ground or water contamination.
  4. Ingestion. If paraquat comes into contact with any food or water source and consumers eat or drink the contaminated items, they can become very sick. Even small amounts of this toxic chemical over a long period of time can lead to chronic medical concerns.

Once paraquat is in your body, it travels everywhere. Your lungs, liver, and kidneys are the most susceptible to paraquat damage, especially over time. Ingesting this poison can damage your mouth, stomach, and intestines and can be fatal. There is no cure for paraquat poisoning.

This lawsuit is a complex matter that intertwines elements of law, public health, and corporate responsibility. The plaintiffs in this case are demanding accountability from Syngenta and Chevron, the manufacturers of Paraquat. is at the forefront of decoding these complexities, making legal proceedings more accessible to everyone.
