Bonedry

Paraquat exposure

Bonedry is a pesticide manufactured by Sinon USA, Inc. that contains nearly 44% paraquat dichloride, a very toxic chemical. To avoid being mistaken for beverages such as coffee, it contains safeguard additives, including a blue dye, a strong odor, and a substance that induces vomiting following accidental ingestion. This herbicide is a defoliant and desiccant used for weed and grass control in a wide range of crops. Since it is highly toxic, people who intend to use it must undergo special training provided by the Environmental Protection Agency. Afterward, they will become licensed applicators of paraquat.

Claim Application

It is worthy of note that no one is allowed to employ Bonedry unless they were trained in this respect, not even people who are under the supervision of licensed applicators. Unfortunately, exposure to paraquat is associated with Parkinson’s disease and, if you worked with or were around Bonedry and came to struggle with this condition, our law firm can help you recover the financial compensation you are entitled to from the liable company.

Due to the high toxicity of Bonedry, people who use it must wear adequate protective equipment, which refers to coveralls, protective eyewear, chemical resistant gloves, shoes, and socks, as well as a NIOSH-approved particulate respirator with any N, R, or P filter. Bonedry is so dangerous that even a single sip can be fatal, which is why it must be stored accordingly so that children will not have access to it. While inhalation is unlikely to cause serious health problems due to the low vapor pressure and large spray droplet size, it can still cause damage to your respiratory system by leading to mucosal irritation and nosebleeds. The product must not be applied in a way that will contact workers or other people, either directly or through drift. It is a violation of federal law to use Bonedry if you are not a licensed applicator of the herbicide. Bonedry is very effective in destroying weeds and grasses in the following crops:

  • maize
  • soybeans
  • wheat
  • rice
  • potatoes
  • oranges
  • apples
  • bananas
  • coffee
  • tea
  • cotton
  • sugarcane

In the regrettable event that you developed Parkinson’s disease as a result of frequent exposure to Bonedry, we strongly advise you to contact our law firm, as our main area of practice is toxic exposure and our attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to from Sinon USA, Inc. Nevertheless, it is important to know that up to 30% of people with Parkinson’s disease are initially misdiagnosed, which is why it is important to seek a second and even a third opinion if you have a history of exposure to paraquat. We can only provide legal assistance in filing a claim to people with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. Similarly, if you have a family member who worked with or was around Bonedry, please urge them to seek medical attention if you notice symptoms such as slowness of movement, a tremor in the hands, legs, jaw, or head, stiffness of the limbs and trunk and impaired balance and coordination.
