The lawsuit claims that 3M was previously aware, through testing, that the combat earplugs were too short to fit properly into the ear canal and could loosen in a way that was imperceptible to the person using them. Another claim is that testing results shown to the military prior to purchase were done with modified earplugs, without the Military's knowledge.
How The Process Works
We begin by reviewing your online survey. First, we will look at the circumstances of your case and evaluate the actions needed.
Our support team members will follow up with you with more detailed questions about your case (for example, your personal experience with 3M earplugs and your medical history) and explain to you what you can expect throughout the process.
If eligible, we will send you a contingency fee agreement to get represented in the case by one of our leading legal partners. Fees are payable only if a lawsuit is successful or results in a favorable settlement in which you get compensation. You will not have to spend a single dollar, even if the trial goes on for years.
After signing the contingency agreement, a legal advocate will start working on your claim against 3M. You might be requested to provide medical and historical documents. This is completely complimentary and free of charge.
Settlement and Compensation
In the case of a successful settlement, you will get compensation and the contingency fee is deducted. Keep in mind that compensation amounts can vary between different cases and injury types.
A contingency fee agreement is a legal fee agreement where a client only pays an attorney if the attorney is successful in recovering compensation on the client’s behalf. Under a contingency fee agreement, an attorney works on a case for a fixed percentage of any recovery paid to the client. The contingency fee percentage can vary from state to state and by the complexity of the legal matter but is typically 33% to 40% of the compensation received by the client. Under a contingency fee agreement, the client does not pay an attorney any up-front or on-going legal fees, and the client is not responsible for any legal fees if the attorney does not obtain compensation for the client.
