Welding Rod

Overview

Manufacturers and distributors of welding rods have been the subject of lawsuits alleging that occupational exposure to welding rod fumes caused serious neurological problems, including Parkinson’s Disease and Manganese Poisoning, also known as “Parkinson’s Syndrome.”  Plaintiffs have claimed the welding rod “industry” engaged in a conspiracy to cover up the dangers associated with welding rod use. As plaintiffs pursue multiple actions in federal and state courts, devoting significant resources to litigation, the verdicts against welding rod defendants have reverberated through the manufacturing, financial, insurance and legal sectors.
