Have you been diagnosed with tinnitus or hearing loss?

 

If you wore Combat Arms™ Earplugs (CAEv2) between 2003 and 2015 during foreign conflicts, you may be entitled to significant compensation.

 

In July 2018, there was a whistleblower complaint that settled. 3M admitted to a design defect in their product and paid $9.1 million to resolve the issue. The defective Combat Arms Earplugs ™ (CAEv2) were sold to the military for more than a decade. Combat Arms Earplugs™ have a dangerous design that can cause them to loosen while during use. This defect can cause hearing damage or tinnitus, which represents the largest ongoing medical cost to the military.

Do you suffer from severe ringing in your ears? Did you serve during any of the following conflicts?

 

A defense contractor knowingly put service members at risk for hearing loss. Veterans nationwide have suffered partial or total hearing loss because of defective earplugs. The dual-ended 3M Combat Arms™ Earplugs were standard military issue for soldiers from 2003 to 2015.  

  • War of Afghanistan
  • The Iraq WarWar in North-West Pakistan (part of War on Terror)
  • War in Somalia
  • Operation Ocean Shield in the Indian Ocean
  • American-led intervention in Libya (2011- part of Libyan Crisis)
  • American-led intervention in Iraq (2014 – 2017)
  • American-led Intervention in Syria (2014 to present)
  • Yemeni Civil War (2015 to present)
  • American Intervention in Libya (2015 to present)

Why are the earplugs that were standard issue for more than 10 years defective?

 

Dual-sided Combat Arms™ Earplugs, CAEv2, were designed to give soldiers a single set of earplugs with two options, block sounds like traditional ear plugs or block loud sounds while allowing the wearer to hear quieter noises. The stem of the selective attenuation earplugs is too short. This makes them difficult to insert properly into the ears. The lack of a tight seal in the ear allows dangerous sounds to enter the ear canal causing hearing damage.

Defense Contractor Knowingly Put Service Members at Risk

 

The DOJ lawsuit states the earplugs were known, since 2000, to be defective. A whistleblower alleged the company not only knew about the design flaw, but continued to market and manufacture the ear plugs without disclosing it. The Combat Arms Earplugs were originally designed and manufactured by Aearo Technologies. In 2008, 3M acquired the company and hired the Aearo employees who had developed and tested the ear plugs. These employees were aware of the defects as early as 2000, several years before 3M acquired Aearo Technologies.

At Goldberg Attorneys, we truly understand the impact of defective drugs. Our law firm is here to help you. Call us today to find out if you have claim.

Roundup

Roundup is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses that compete with crops.

In March 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that being exposed to Roundup is likely to cause cancer, even though Monsanto had previously marketed this product to consumers as being “environmentally friendly” and “biodegradable.” Roundup has since been linked to serious side effects, which include: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, lymphocytic lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and more.

Metal-On-Metal Hip Replacement

METAL-ON-METAL hip replacement problems and failures are on the rise. More than a year after Johnson & Johnson issued a DePuy ASR recall for more than 90,000 potentially defective implants, new data indicates that the METAL-ON-METAL hip failure rates may be more than twice as high as prior estimates suggested.

The hip replacement lawyers at Goldberg Attorneys represent individuals throughout the United States who have experienced problems after receiving a METAL-ON-METAL hip implant.

METAL-ON-METAL hip replacements, which are a relatively new design, account for about one-third of the 250,000 hip replacements performed in recent years. They became popular due to the belief that the metal structure is more durable than other types of hip implants. However, sales have fallen recently amid concerns about problems with the design, which may cause microscopic metal particles to be shed into the body as the parts of the hip replacement rub against each other.

If you or a loved one experienced serious problems after using a Mirena IUD, then call us. Studies have show that after insertion, the Mirena IUD can move, causing serious injuries requiring removal, as well as additional surgeries to repair damages caused by the IUD or its removal.

The FDA has issued warnings for the implanted birth control device Mirena.

The Mirena IUD has been linked to serious side effects:

  • Perforation of Uterus
  • Serious Infection or Abscess
  • Perforation of Other Organs
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Infertility
  • Death

If you or loved one had a Mirena IUD implant and had it removed, whether by surgery or in a doctor’s office, then you may be entitled to compensation. Goldberg Attorneys are investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of users of the Mirena IUD. Mirena injuries can be extremely painful, and may impact the lives of victims and their families for years to come. Although Mirena has been promoted as a safe and reversible form of birth control, women may face an unreasonable risk of problems, such as spontaneous migration and uterine perforation.

More than 2 million women throughout the U.S. have used Mirena since it was introduced in December 2000, and popularity continues to rise.

The FDA received a total of 45,966 adverse event reports associated with Mirena IUD between November 1, 1997 and June 30, 2012. The FDA has previously warned Bayer about the marketing of Mirena, which failed to disclose safety risks while claiming the devices could help “busy moms” with intimacy and make them “look and feel great.”

If you have experienced serious problems following use of a Mirena IUD, call Goldberg Attorneys,(800) 600-6014, for a free, confidential consultation. You may be entitled to financial compensation.

Hernia Mesh

Hernia Mesh

EITHICON PHYSIOMESH HERNIA

Lawsuits have been filed by thousands of people who were injured by hernia mesh patches and plugs. In 2016, Ethicon pulled Physiomesh off the market due to higher rates of surgery complications.

Ethicon Physiomesh Hernia Product

In May 2016 Ethicon initiated a voluntary recall of its Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh (for laparoscopic use) following an analysis of unpublished data from two (2) large independent hernia registries. The recurrence/reoperation rates after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair using Ethicon Physiomesh were higher than the average rates of the comparator meshes among patients in these registries. Ethicon believes the higher rates to be a multifactorial issue (including possible product characteristics, operative and patient factors), but has not been able to fully characterize these factors. Consequently, Ethicon recalled Physiomesh from the global market. This is a 510(k) device.

Types of Hernias

  • Inner groin
  • Upper thigh or outer groin
  • Surgical incision or scar in the abdomen
  • Abdominal wall
  • Belly button
  • Inside the abdomen on the diaphragm

THernia Mesh Patches & Plugs

Hernias have a high risk of re-opening (called “recurrence“). To reduce this risk, most surgeons stitch in a mesh patch or plug to help reinforce muscles and connective tissues. They can be synthetic or non-synthetic, permanent or absorbable. Some patches work better than others. For example, Physiomesh was withdrawn from the market due to higher rates of recurrence.

Hernia Mesh Surgery Complications

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Scar-like tissue that sticks tissues together (adhesion)
  • Blockage of the large or small intestine
  • Organ perforation
  • Mesh migration
  • Mesh shrinkage (contraction)
  • Needing another surgery
