Is It Too Late to File a Paraquat Lawsuit?
No, it is not too late to file a Paraquat lawsuit. If you or a loved one suffered from Parkinson’s disease after exposure to paraquat, you may qualify for a paraquat lawsuit and there is still time to join the multidistrict litigation. Don’t wait, though — the longer you wait, the harder it may be to prove that paraquat exposure caused your Parkinson’s disease, and the more difficult it may be to recover the compensation that you need and deserve.
That said, paraquat claims (like all injury claims) are subject to the statute of limitations, which is the deadline by which you must file a claim or lawsuit.
“It is not too late to file a paraquat lawsuit. If you or a loved one suffered from Parkinson’s disease after exposure to paraquat, we would love to help you if we can.”
–Gene Riddle, Paraquat lawsuit attorney
Statute of Limitations for Paraquat Lawsuits
The statute of limitations varies by state, however, in most U.S. states, plaintiffs must file a personal injury claim within 2 or 3 years of the date of injury. There may be some exceptions.
If you miss the statute of limitations deadline in your state, you may be barred from filing a paraquat lawsuit. This makes it even more important to immediately talk with an experienced Paraquat lawyer who can evaluate your eligibility, determine the relevant statute of limitations, and advise you on how to file a paraquat claim.
“How Do I Prove That Paraquat Caused My Parkinson’s Disease?”
The evidence supporting the claim that paraquat causes Parkinson’s disease is very strong, and more research is ongoing.
That said, it can be very challenging for plaintiffs’ attorneys to prove that Parkinson’s disease was caused by exposure to paraquat, and it’s important that you and your attorney gather as much evidence as possible — as quickly as possible.
Evidence That May Be Used in a Paraquat Lawsuit Includes:
- Licensure records for the paraquat applicator
- Herbicide application records obtained from the farm
- Purchase receipts for paraquat-containing herbicides
- Photos documenting paraquat application or products
- Eyewitness testimony
- Expert testimony by scientists and others
