Does Parazone Contain Paraquat? Is There A Parazone Lawsuit For Parkinson's Disease?

Does Parazone Contain Paraquat? Is There A Parazone Lawsuit For Parkinson's Disease?

Parazone Contains Paraquat

An effective contact herbicide, Parazone, primarily controls broadleaf and grass weeds in the small size range and is also used to suppress perennial weeds. It contains paraquat, a highly toxic chemical. The herbicide is manufactured by ADAMA USA, and can be used for over 100 different crops, including chemical fallow. It is also effective as a desiccant and a defoliant at harvest. Still, Parazone is very dangerous. Even a single sip is fatal. Due to this, only certified applicators who have received special training provided by the Environmental Protection Agency can use it. It is not even permitted for people who are working in the presence of certified applicators to use Parazone because the risk of exposure is too great.

Does Parazone Cause Parkinson's Disease? 

You should be aware that paraquat, the active ingredient in Parazone, is related to an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, which is why we strongly encourage clients who have Parkinson’s and a history of paraquat exposure to contact our firm. As one of our main practice areas is toxic exposure, we can assist you in obtaining the financial compensation you are entitled to from the manufacturer of Parazone.

Parazone is highly effective in controlling weeds and grasses, and can be used to manage resistance in planting beds. In addition, it is also frequently used as a harvest aid product in a variety of crops, including soybeans and cotton. This herbicide contains nearly 44% paraquat dichloride, making it very toxic. Parazone has a strong, unpleasant odor, and it contains a substance that causes vomiting if accidentally swallowed. Under federal law, it is forbidden to use this product on playgrounds, recreational parks, sports fields, schools, and golf courses, since it is intended only for agricultural employment. People who are certified to use Parazone must wear protective equipment to reduce the risk of exposure, including:

  • Coveralls
  • Protective eyewear
  • NIOSH-approved particulate filtering respirator
  • Chemical resistant gloves
  • Face shields
  • Shoes and socks

Is This a Parazone Class Action?

No. As of this time it is not. We do not intend to file a class-action due to the varying degree of severity of injury from plaintiff to plaintiff.

The risk of developing Parkinson’s disease for those who worked with or surrounded Paraquat is 250% higher than that for the general population. If you or a loved one has been exposed to Paraquat via the product Parazone, look for signs like slow movement, tremors in the hands, legs, jaw, or head, stiff limbs, or impaired balance and coordination. If you suspect that one or more of these symptoms have been noticed in you or your loved one, seek medical attention immediately, since they are very likely to suffer from Parkinson’s disease. Because the condition is often misdiagnosed, obtaining a second and even third opinion may be necessary in order to receive the correct diagnosis.
