Firestorm is also toxic to wildlife and, for this reason, it should not be applied to areas where surface water is present. If you worked with Firestorm or were around it and developed Parkinson’s disease as a consequence, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure and will help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Firestorm is mildly corrosive to aluminum and produces hydrogen gas, which may create a highly combustible gas mixture. It is forbidden to store it in containers, spray tanks, nurse tanks, or equipment that is made of aluminum. Instead, it should be stored in containers that have high-density polyethylene and rubber-lined steel. Furthermore, it is a violation of federal law to use Firestorm in a manner that is inconsistent with the labeling. You should not apply the product in a way that will contact workers or other people, either directly or through drift. The use of Firestorm is forbidden around home gardens, schools, recreational parks, golf courses, and playgrounds. People who employ Firestorm are required to wear the following protective equipment when using the herbicide:
- shoes and socks
- protective eyewear
- chemical resistant gloves
If you worked with Firestorm or were around it, your risk of developing Parkinson’s disease is very high. Thereby, you should keep a close eye on your health to timely identify the signs of this condition in the unfortunate case you will come to struggle with it. Similarly, if one of your family members worked with paraquat or was around it, you need to pay close attention to their health for the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, which include a tremor in arms, legs, jaw or head, slowness of movement, stiffness of the limbs and trunk and impaired balance and coordination. If you or a family member has a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis, please contact our legal team, as we specialize in toxic exposure and will be able to help you recover the financial compensation you are entitled to from the responsible Firestorm manufacturers.
