Which Earplugs are You Talking About?
The earplugs were used between 2003 and 2015. They are dual-ended. They have an olive-green end and yellow end. They can give you two levels of noise protection. It depends on the end that you use.
Why do People Believe That the Earplugs are Defective?
The court documents stated that the earplugs were too short. This caused the earplugs to loosen when they are placed in the ears. The earplugs can cause a person to be exposed to noises that can damage their hearing and cause tinnitus.
The claim states that the company knew that the earplugs were defective back in 2000. The company said that the earplugs met the standards that were set by the military.
Why are People Filing New Lawsuits?
The government was compensated for the money that they spent on the earplugs. However, service members who want to be compensated will have to file a lawsuit.
