Paraquat is a weed-killing herbicide intended for commercial use only due to its high toxicity. Farmers and agricultural laborers are most at risk for exposure, but those who live near industrial farms may also be at risk of paraquat exposure.
This toxic herbicide has been linked to many side effects, including Parkinson’s and kidney disease. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), paraquat is one of the most widely used herbicides in the nation. Nearly 11 million pounds of the herbicide are sprayed on U.S. crops each year.
Every day, innocent people are hurt and feel powerless against large corporations and institutions.
Our goal is to help victims find local legal resources necessary to fight back and get the justice, compensation, and peach of mind they deserve.
A class action is a lawsuit that is brought by one or several people on behalf of everyone who has suffered the same problem with the same business or institution.
The group of people is called the “class.” The action collects all of the class members’ claims into one larger claim. If damages are awarded, the entire class shares in the award.
The advantage of a class-action suit in a consumer case is that it aggregates claims that individually may be too small to justify pursuing legal action.
Bringing a single action is more efficient and cost-effective because it avoids numerous individual lawsuits that all involve the same facts and circumstances.
