Paraquat first hit the US market in 1962 after it was introduced by Sygenta, Chevron and several other companies under a variety of different brand and trade names.
Below our injury lawyers at Wagner Reese cover all the products that our research shows contain the chemical herbicide Paraquat.
If you or a loved one was exposed to any of the products below containing Paraquat, then you may be entitled to compensation if you or your loved one developed Parkinson's disease or end-stage renal failure. For more information on a paraquat lawsuit claim read our website.
In light of the recent studies that suggest a link between developing Parkinson's disease or kidney failure after exposure to the restricted-use substance, Paraquat, we have received many calls from farmers and growers who have referenced other products and asked us if they contained Paraquat. As a result, our experienced injury attorneys have started researching all brand names that may have contained Paraquat over the years.
Paraquat, or N,N′-dimethyl-4,4′-bipyridinium dichloride as it is referred to as its systematic name, or even Mehtyl Viologen, has been commonly sold to farmers, agricultural workers, nurseries, golf courses and other businesses as Gramoxone. However there are a host of other brand names that it was sold under or that contain Paraquat.
Paraquat is a controlled substance. The EPA requires any application of the chemical herbicide to be registered and that the application must be done by a certified applicator. Therefore there is a record of what was used, where it was used, and how much of an application rate was used. There is also a record of the certified applicator who applied it. As a result, if you know a product that is listed above was used, and the location it was used, our attorneys and private investigators will be able to research the remaining details.
