3M Ear Plugs
Do you have hearing loss or tinnitus after serving in the military? 3M recently admitted it sold defective earplugs to the U.S. military for more than ten years. The Combat Arms Earplugs were supposed to seal off the outer ear canal and block out high-level noises, but the design defect left our veterans vulnerable to hearing damage.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death from an IVC filter you may have a claim. IVC Filters are a medical device used during surgery for patients who are at risk of developing blood clots.
