Farm workers, herbicide applicators and other individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease caused by Paraquat exposure may be entitled to financial compensation. The lawyers at Cory Watson will evaluate your case 100% free of charge.

For decades, the herbicide Paraquat has been used to kill weeds and other unwanted vegetation in commercial farming. You or your loved one may have been exposed to Paraquat as a farmer, farm worker, herbicide applicator, chemical mixer, tank filler, agricultural pilot, or if you lived near crops treated with the dangerous herbicide.


Many diagnoses of Parkinson’s disease have been reported among people who were exposed to Paraquat either directly through working with the weedkiller or by proximity to land that was treated with Paraquat. The link to Parkinson’s disease is connected to herbicides that are identical to Paraquat, but may have been manufactured under names like:

  • Blanco
  • Bonfire Herbicide
  • Devour
  • Firestorm
  • Gramaxone
  • Helmquat
  • Para-SHOT
  • Parazone
  • Quik-Quat
