Why Hire a Defective Product Attorney?
Between the years 2003 an 2015, the US military issues dual-ended earplugs for soldiers who were in active duties in war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was found that the earplugs were defective and many of the soldiers were left with full or partial hearing loss or tinnitus.

Since most attorneys work on a contingency basis, you don’t have to pay them anything until they have won the case for you. Otherwise, you don’t pay anything. This they call the no fee guarantee.
The company that manufactured the dual-ended earplugs have designed them so that there are two layers of protection for the user. One of the layers of protection blocks out the noise while the other side protects the eardrums from the impact of gunfire and explosions.
