What’s Happening with Paraquat and Parkinson’s Lawsuits?

paraquat-lawsuit

At present, several research studies have indicated that paraquat exposure can increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease for certain groups of people. While this illness can often progress slowly, no one wants to battle its agonizing symptoms. They can include loss of coordination, tremors, fatigue, speech difficulties, and other challenging issues. Unfortunately, America is one of the few major countries that still use this pesticide.

New York City Attorneys for Childhood Sexual Abuse Survivors

Important history was made back in February 2019 when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the New York Child Victims Act into law. It’s one of the most comprehensive statutes ever passed that extends full rights to children to file lawsuits after being sexually abused. What’s equally important is that these legal cases can now be filed up until the former child survivor reaches the adult age of fifty-five (55). Former statutes of limitations that once blocked these lawsuits after the child reached the age of twenty-three (23) are no longer binding. And for one full year after its signing, any...
