What Are The Symptoms Of Parkinson’s Disease?
The main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are:
- Shaking, even with relaxed muscles
- Slow movements and reflexes
- A lack of balance
Secondary symptoms can be caused by the main symptoms. Secondary symptoms can include:
- Shrinking handwriting
- Stopping in the middle of walking
- An expressionless face
- Quiet speech, slurred speech and/or speech in a monotonous tone
- Spasms of the muscles
- A bent-forward posture
- A lack of coordination
- Swallowing difficulties
How Does Paraquat Cause Parkinson’s Disease?
Scientific evidence suggests that paraquat causes Parkinson’s disease by killing dopaminergic neurons through inducing oxidative stress in brain cells. These neurons produce dopamine, which is critical to the brain’s motor control, and they do not grow back when they are killed. The motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are the result when too many of these neurons are killed by paraquat.
Can I File A Lawsuit Over Parkinson’s Disease Caused By Paraquat?
Yes. Our Bakersfield paraquat lawyers can help you file a paraquat lawsuit against the manufacturers of the paraquat which caused your Parkinson’s disease. We can file a lawsuit based on negligence, since paraquat manufacturers negligently failed to test their products thoroughly and negligently failed to warn the public about the link between paraquat and Parkinson’s disease despite mountains of scientific evidence suggesting the link. We can file a paraquat lawsuit in Bakersfield based on strict liability as well, as paraquat is defective by design since it can cause Parkinson’s disease when manufactured and used correctly.

What Should I Do After An Accident In Bakersfield?
Seek medical attention as quickly as possible, even if you don’t think you’re injured. Accident victims sometimes don’t realize they’re hurt until days or weeks after an accident. Promptly documenting injuries with medical professionals can be vital for obtaining a recovery since insurance companies can argue something else caused your injuries if you don’t do this.
Call law enforcement. Take pictures of everything, including your injuries, the accident scene, and any damaged property. Get the contact information of any witnesses, but keep your talking to a minimum so you don’t incriminate yourself.
Then, contact the Bakersfield injury lawyers at Nadrich & Cohen so they can deal with the insurance companies for you. Let us handle all communication with insurance companies and lawyers while you focus on injury recovery.
