It’s impossible to calculate the average settlement for a Paraquat lawsuit because no two cases are the same, and each victim suffers unique damages. No one can estimate the amount of your potential settlement without examining the details of your specific case.
You are not alone in your pursuit of financial recovery or your desire to start rebuilding your health and your life after an adverse diagnosis. At Nadrich & Cohen, we are here to help you and others who have suffered health issues due to Paraquat exposure. Our legal team will obtain your medical and financial records to help us assess your damages.
Types of Compensation We’ll Fight to Recover for You in a Paraquat Lawsuit
Any health challenge can result in many medical bills and ongoing expenses. If you were exposed to Paraquat, we can help you fight to hold the product’s manufacturer financially responsible for covering the costs of your damaged health.
In class action lawsuits, all plaintiffs share equally in any resulting settlement or verdict. In our mass tort cases, each plaintiff’s recoverable damages are unique to their case and situation.
The damages we can fight to recover for you include your specific:
- Known and anticipated medical care
- Injury and recovery-related income loss
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Your settlement or award in a Paraquat case will vary depending on several factors, including the extent of your exposure and the type and severity of your Paraquat-related health challenges.
If you or someone you love was harmful by exposure to Paraquat, we can help you seek the best possible outcome for your case. We will carefully collect all bills, receipts, estimates, and other documents that prove the value of your case.
We will never stop fighting for you and never treat you like a case file. Instead, we’ll explore and review the unique value of your recoverable damages and assign a value to your case accordingly.
Understanding Settlement Tiers in Paraquat Cases
In mass tort lawsuits, settlements are often distributed based on a tier system. Each litigant is assigned to a category generally based on the severity of their injuries, among other things.
The financial award of our mass tort case is likely to be distributed in the same fashion. When we handle your case, our lawyers will explain the tier system, your place in it, and the possible financial compensation you could receive.
Do Not Delay Your Pursuit of Financial Recovery in a Paraquat Case
No matter what the average settlement for a Paraquat lawsuit resolution is, you cannot be part of it if you do not file your request for compensation in accordance with state law. When you trust the handling of your case to our team at Nadrich & Cohen, we’ll oversee every detail — big or small.
That includes time management and ensuring we file your case on time. Your state’s laws will dictate your filing deadline. Our legal team will ensure compliance with the statute of limitations because we understand the costly consequences of missing this deadline.
Leave this and all other details of your case to us so you can concentrate on resting and restoring your health.
Understand Why Paraquat’s Manufacturer May Be Responsible for Compensating You
Paraquat is a popular, yet highly toxic herbicide. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ingesting even a small amount of Paraquat can be fatal. Sadly, there is no available antidote or cure.
Shockingly, the EPA has not banned the use of this product. Instead, they have opted to limit its use with strictly imposed restrictions. In addition to the connection between Paraquat and Parkinson’s disease, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes the following additional dangers of exposure:
- Heart failure
- Kidney failure
- Liver failure
- Lung scarring
- Mental confusion
- Increased heart rate
- Heart damage
- Muscle weakness
- Fluid-filled lungs
- Respiratory distress
Seek medical care immediately if you notice any signs and symptoms of Paraquat exposure via ingestion or contact with your skin. You should also seek our legal guidance to examine your eligibility to join a mass tort case.
