Chlorpyrifos Pesticide Lawsuits Lawyer

Since the 1960s, chlorpyrifos has been used in commercial and residential pesticides through the U.S., but scientific evidence has shown a link between the chemical and neurological disorders. Even though the EPA has been inundated with petitions to ban the chemical for over a decade, it still continued to allow the use. A court order was issued in August 2018 for the EPA to ban the use of chlorpyrifos, but for many victims, it is too late.

Chlorpyrifos has been used in hundreds of different cash crops and in some residential pest control products. The chemical works to control common pests like mites and fleas by attacking their neurological systems. Unfortunately, studies on the chemical have shown that in continuous doses, chlorpyrifos is also a neurotoxin that impacts humans, especially dangerous to pregnant women and children.

Neurological Injuries Caused by Chlorpyrifos

Ongoing research has shown a link between exposure to chlorpyrifos and certain neurological and brain disorders. Prolonged exposure to the chemical during pregnancy can alter the neurodevelopment of a fetus’ brain. Exposure can come from living in agricultural areas that use pesticides containing chlorpyrifos. It can also occur from prolonged exposure to residential pest control products or consuming produce with chlorpyrifos residue. Neurological injuries that can occur include:

  • Autism
  • Intelligence deficiencies
  • ADHD
  • Cognitive impairments impacting memory, focus and motor skills

Over the last 50 years, Chlorpyrifos may have been responsible for thousands upon thousands of neurological disorders caused during pregnancy. Chlorpyrifos was patented by Dow Chemicals in the 1960s and is known under trade names such as Cobalt, Lock-On and Lorsban. If you believe you or your child may have been injured due to exposure during pregnancy to chlorpyrifos, contact our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP to discuss your claim. It is possible you may be entitled to pursue compensation under a product liability lawsuit against the makers of chlorpyrifos.
