If you are one of the thousands of individuals who developed Parkinson’s Disease after long-term exposure to Paraquat, you may have a claim for damages.
In fact, given the degenerative nature of Parkinson’s Disease, if you are affected, you should file a lawsuit.
If someone else is responsible for you developing the condition, you shouldn’t be responsible for dealing with it alone.
Furthermore, because Parkinson's Disease is a lifelong affliction, the settlements you can get for Paraquat Parkinson's are substantial in size.
If you are considering filing a lawsuit but need immediate financial assistance, taking out a settlement loan from Ally Lawsuit Loans can help you out of your financial bind.
Read on for more information on settlement loans and Paraquat from the team at Ally Lawsuit Loans.
What Is Paraquat?
Paraquat is a widely used herbicide in many agricultural settings. It comes in many different products and name brands, but the most popular version is Gramoxone SL 2.0.
The chemical is perfectly legal to use in the United States, and it is effective. American farmers doubled their use of the substance in the decade between 2006 and 2016.
Despite its legality and popularity in the US, Paraquat has a less than stellar safety profile. Because of that, more than 30 countries prohibit its use.
The most significant concern about Paraquat is its link to Parkinson’s Disease. Many studies show that long-term exposure to even small amounts of Paraquat significantly increases an individual's risk of developing the progressive neurodegenerative disease.
On top of that, acute Paraquat poisoning is also a risk. Consumption of less than 10 mL of the chemical is potentially fatal.
Recently, many affected individuals have sued the sellers and makers of Paraquat for damages related to their development of Parkinson’s disease.
How Can a Lawsuit Loan Help My Paraquat Settlement?
A lawsuit loan can help you ensure that you get the most out of your Paraquat settlement. How? By helping you see your case through to the end. If you have Parkinson’s, you are probably seeing your medical costs stack up quickly.
If you find yourself unable to work, those bills are going to pile up even quicker. If you can’t pay those bills, they will accrue interest and take a bite out of your eventual settlement.
Knowing the potentially precarious financial situation that you are in, the defendant in your lawsuit is likely to give you lowball settlement offers at first.
Their bet is that if you are financially desperate, you will choose to accept the lowball offer for short-term financial solvency. If you have a lawsuit loan, however, you can call their bluff.
With cash in your pocket, you can take care of your bills now and not feel pressured to accept a lowball settlement offer. Essentially, a lawsuit loan can buy you the ability to see your case through to the end.
How Do I Qualify for a Paraquat Lawsuit Loan?
Qualifying for a Paraquat settlement loan with Ally Lawsuit Loans is a straightforward process. To qualify, you need to show us just two things:
