Hearing Loss Lawsuit – Defective Earplugs
If you are the victim of acoustic trauma causing partial or complete hearing loss, tinnitus (persistent ringing in the ears0, or hyperacusis (severe sensitivity to noise), you may have the right to sue for damages.
How can noise injuries happen?
People have suffered severe and permanent injury as a result of being exposed to even a single burst of high intensity noise, or through long-term exposure to unreasonable noise levels. This may happen at work, on a simple walk down an urban street, or just about anywhere.
Recently, a private citizen exposed to impulse noise above 140 decibels from a military cannon, settled a claim for resulting permanent and life-altering tinnitus. The cannon was fired during a civilian ceremony in a public park. In addition, 3M Company, for example, has been hit with numerous lawsuits based on its providing defective hearing protection to active duty service persons, causing hearing loss to thousands of our military.
Noise-induced injuries can occur from:
- 3M Defective Hearing Protection
- Military Artillery
