How much compensation will a paraquat claim result in?

The amount of compensation you will receive after you file a paraquat claim will depend on factors such as how much distress Parkinson's disease is causing you in your everyday life, whether you need assistance with performing daily tasks, and the medical expenses incurred by your diagnosis.

Only people who developed Parkinson's disease as a result of paraquat exposure are eligible for financial compensation

While paraquat has been around since 1962, it was only recently that people began filing lawsuits against liable manufacturers, who failed to warn consumers of the risk of developing Parkinson's disease as a consequence of exposure. The first lawsuit was filed in 2017 by Thomas Hoffman of St. Clair County, Michigan against Syngenta and Growmark. Unfortunately, the plaintiff died 23 after filing his lawsuit, at the age of 63, as he was struggling with Parkinson's disease.

Nowadays, people no longer file lawsuits against the responsible paraquat manufacturers. Instead, a claim will be filed by a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure. This will result in financial compensation within a shorter period of time and requires a less complex process than a lawsuit. The amount of compensation people who developed Parkinson's disease as a consequence of paraquat exposure ranges between $10,000 and $200,000, depending on key factors such as how much distress the brain disorder is causing to the sufferer in their daily life, whether they need the assistance of another person to perform everyday tasks and the medical expenses incurred by their diagnosis.
