Parkinson’s Disease and Solvent Exposure

Parkinson’s disease and parkinsonism affect the central nervous system and cause daily functions to become challenging or even impossible. The dangerous effects on the central nervous system can produce lifelong debilitating and deadly problems.

While causes vary, exposure to chemicals and industrial solvents can lead to these neurological issues. Automotive painters, steamfitters, and welders are just some of the workers who may be affected.

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or parkinsonism and was exposed to dangerous solvents or welding rods, please contact us today. Don't let time limit your rights. There is no obligation to have your case reviewed by one of our attorneys.

Welding Rods: Manganese Exposure & Manganism
Welding rod fumes can cause serious and detrimental health effects in welders. Manganese exposure in welders has been linked to a Parkinson's like disease known as manganism. Learn more.
Solvent Exposure
Steamfitters, welders and automotive technicians may be at risk of developing Parkinsons as a result of chemical exposures. The occupational and industrial use of chemicals such as toluene, xylene, n-hexane, trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PERC) and carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) may be linked to the development of Parkinson's.
