Dorsey Daniel suffered from the severe effects of Parkinson’s disease caused by exposure to products containing Paraquat while spraying Paraquat at a tobacco farm using both a tractor and hand sprayer from approximately the 1980s to 1990. On May 18, 2022, he has sued Paraquat manufactures and sellers Syngenta, Chevron and FMC, as did thousands Parkinson’s sufferers due to their exposure to Paraquat. So many people have recently filed legal claims alleging paraquat caused them to develop Parkinson’s that the cases have been consolidated for oversight by a federal judge in Illinois and a state court judge in California (MDL No. 3004). The first trial over the allegations is scheduled for February 27, 2023.
