Scientists and studies say some contaminated water may cause Parkinson’s disease. For example, the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune from the 1950s to the 1980s may have caused the disease. Also, water exposed to the pesticide paraquat may cause the disease.
If you believe you acquired Parkinson’s disease or another condition due to contaminated water, our firm can help you. We can build a case for you and possibly even include you in a mass tort case against the liable party. Then, we will fight on your behalf for your due damages.
Can Contaminated Water Cause Parkinson’s Disease?
There may be a connection between certain contaminated water and Parkinson’s disease, according to various scientists and studies. For example, according to an article published on Scientific American‘s website, a study of more than 700 people found that those who likely drank contaminated well water had a high rate of Parkinson’s. The risk was even higher for those who had private wells near fields sprayed with commonly known pesticides.
Also, according to the same article, scientists at the University of Rochester found that if newborn mice were exposed to a mix of two other common pesticides in the U.S., maneb and paraquat, the mice developed Parkinson’s symptoms in older age.

Can Pesticides Cause Parkinson’s Disease?
The scientists and studies showed a correlation between Parkinson’s and certain pesticides, like paraquat. This correlation may be enough for the basis of a legal case against a pesticide manufacturer or distributor, or a related party.
Is Parkinson’s Disease Related to Camp Lejeune Water?
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Parkinson’s disease is one of the possible conditions a person may suffer due to exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune from the 1950s to the 1980s. If you believe you were exposed during this time, and if you have Parkinson’s or one of the other conditions on the VA’s list, you may have a Camp Lejeune case.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Get for Exposure to Contaminated Water?
Depending on your case, you may be able to recover compensation for your condition. If other people have similar cases, you could participate in a mass tort case and lawsuit. This may help you recover fair compensation. For example, there are mass tort cases and lawsuits for paraquat exposure and other mass tort cases and suits for Camp Lejeune contaminated water exposure.
If you have a paraquat case or a similar case, you may be able to qualify for a lump-sum payout including a few damages, such as:
- Your pain and suffering
- A disability your condition caused
- A reduced capacity to earn an income
- Your reduced income
- Your medical expenses and related expenses
- The cost of any kind of care you may need
- A lower quality of life, if applicable
If you have a Camp Lejeune case or a similar case, you may be able to qualify for monthly benefits from your state government. These could be:
- Standard monthly benefits totaling as much as several thousand dollars per month
- Additional special monthly benefits if you have an especially serious medical condition
