Paraquat Litigation

Jessie Hoerman Feb 19, 2021

Why Paraquat Lawsuits?

Paraquat is the most highly acutely toxic herbicide to be marketed over the last 60 years, according to PANAP. A 2011 study by the National Institute of Health found that people exposed to Paraquat are approximately 2.5 times more likely to develop Parkinson’s Disease.

Thirty-two countries have banned the herbicide but it's still being deployed in the United States by commercially-licensed users. And despite the danger, its usage doubled from 2013 to 2016 according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

SimplyConvert Can Help Your Firm Get Involved Now

SimplyConvert’s proprietary Instant Case Evaluation Platform can help your team seek justice for individuals exposed to Paraquat (trade name Gramoxone) and diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

We partner with the most qualified lawyers in every litigation and practice area to formulate the criteria for qualifying clients. Once we program our AI-powered chatbot with the litigation-specific criteria, it is ready to chat with website visitors and qualify potentially viable claims for the litigation.

Firms on the SimplyConvert platform can immediately begin case intake for the litigation. (If your team wishes to modify the criteria, we are happy to discuss how we can revise it to work for your practice.) As with all of our Instant Case Evaluators, no litigation-specific training is required.
