October 2022 Paraquat Update

October 2022 Paraquat Update

Exposure to the dangerous herbicide Paraquat can cause Parkinson’s Disease. The Smith Law Firm is at the forefront of this litigation, having filed hundreds of cases in the MDL and state court. We are continuing to file our clients’ cases and support the efforts of all plaintiffs seeking justice from greedy corporate defendants. The first Paraquat trials in the MDL and California state court are set for Summer 2023. However, these dates are tentative and subject to change. The litigation process is slow, but we are ready for the fight and appreciate the opportunity to represent our clients harmed by Paraquat exposure.

To Our Paraquat Clients:

If you have not yet completed your PAQ, please do so as soon as possible. We previously mailed you a packet that contained a hard copy workbook of the PAQ to be completed, corresponding authorization forms to be signed, and a large return envelope with prepaid postage to send us back the completed documents. If you have not yet done so, please complete the PAQ in one of three ways:

  1. Via our online form by visiting our secure website:
  2. Complete the previously provided workbook and send back to us with the corresponding authorization forms using the envelope provided.
  3. Call our team and complete it together over the telephone at (832) 568-7435. We expect the calls to take about 45 minutes to complete. Please review the workbook provided prior to the phone call so you can be familiar with the information needed.

After your completion of the PAQ, we may need additional information from you so that we can formally submit your PAQ and file your complaint. If so, it is important that you timely respond to all requests for information so that your case will not be in jeopardy of dismissal or delay.

We will notify you via text and/or email once your case is filed. After this, we ask that you patiently wait as your claim moves through the legal system. If you have any updates regarding your case or contact information, please call us at (832) 568-7435. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
