For decades, the older herbicide “paraquat” has been used to protect crops on farms throughout the nation. Unfortunately, due to the potency of the formula, people who live close to agricultural areas in which paraquat was used have the potential to suffer due to their exposure. Numerous studies have also shown that this herbicide may be linked to Parkinson’s disease as well as kidney disease and kidney failure.

If you or a loved one was routinely exposed to paraquat and have developed Parkinson’s disease, kidney disease, or kidney failure, then you may be entitled to compensation. Whether you directly applied paraquat or have lived near a farm that potentially used paraquat, we may be able to help you. The experienced attorneys at The Ruth Law Team are currently reviewing several lawsuits for sufferers of Parkinson’s disease. We will help you and your loved ones seek justice by filing a paraquat claim on your behalf. Contact The Ruth Law Team at (888) 373-0625 for your free consultation.
