The statute of limitations is a legal concept that imposes a deadline on the amount of time someone has to file a personal injury lawsuit. Generally, plaintiffs must file a claim within two or three years of their injury date.
In cases where paraquat is involved, this deadline can be especially important as some states may be less forgiving when it comes to filing paraquat lawsuits after the statute of limitations has expired. Those considering filing a paraquat exposure lawsuit should consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
A lawyer will be able to evaluate their eligibility for litigation and advise them about their state’s specific statutes. An experienced attorney will help individuals navigate these complexities quickly and appropriately and continue forward with their claims before time runs out.

Paraquat is a powerful herbicide that is used in many agricultural and professional landscaping applications. It is highly toxic and has been linked to major health risks, including neurodegenerative disorders, respiratory failure, coma, and death. Because Paraquat is sprayed on open fields, those who work with it directly as licensed applicators may be the most at risk for exposure.
However, other individuals who don’t come into direct contact with the chemical are still exposed due to drifting spray caused by wind or water runoff. This increases the risk of exposure for farmers, farm workers, field workers, landscapers, and other agricultural laborers who work near treated fields.
