South Carolina Lawyer Examines Link Between Paraquat and Parkinson’s Disease

Video Transcript:

Nancy Zambrano:

What are some types of workers who are more likely to have been exposed to paraquat, which has been linked to Parkinson's disease? That's what we ask South Carolina attorney Randy Hood in this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Randy Hood:

In order to use paraquat for weed control, someone has to be a certified applicator. They have to have actually been approved to use this product and be approved to be able to apply it to an agricultural field or an agricultural location. You have the paraquat applicators, you have the farmers, if they weren't the applicator themselves, then they are the persons that lived or worked in the specific location, but it's very geocentric for anybody that was involved in either the application or working in the field or living in that area.
