MASS TORT LIEN RESOLUTION
Paraquat Lien Resolution
Paraquat is an herbicide that has been used in the United States since 1964 despite being banned by other governments such as the European Union and China. It is used in agricultural settings, in grounds maintenance at large facilities, and in golf course maintenance. Those who were affected the most significantly are those who inhaled the chemicals during or just after application, and those who mixed the chemicals. Potential plaintiffs include farmers, farm-workers, ranchers, aerial applicators, landscapers, groundskeepers, and maintenance workers. The most likely healthcare liens for this mass tort are Medicare, Medicaid, Private Health Insurance, and Military health insurance.
