U.S. Military Hearing Loss Claims

We are filing claims on behalf of United States servicemen and women who have experienced hearing loss and tinnitus.

In July 2018, the United States Justice Department announced it reached an agreement in which a government contractor would pay $9.1 million to resolve claims that it knowingly sold defective earplugs to the United States government for all branches of the United States military. The Department of Justice’s press release can be read HERE.

According to the government’s allegations, Combat Arms™ earplugs were sold to the United States government as part of a multi-million dollar per year contract but did not meet required specifications.

Combat Arms™ earplugs were developed to provide soldiers a single set of earplugs that could be worn in either an open “unblocked” position (yellow end in) to block, or at least significantly reduce, the loud impulse sounds of battle, while still allowing the soldier to hear quieter noises such as commands spoken by fellow soldiers. The earplugs can also be worn in a closed or “blocked” position (olive end in) to block, or at least significantly reduce, all sounds.

3M to Pay $9.1 Million Over Defective Military Earplugs

As a result, tens of thousands of United States military members went into combat between 2003 and 2015 wearing Combat Arms™ earplugs that did not adequately protect their hearing, and soldiers may have suffered some form of hearing loss or tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

If you were active in any branch of the military any time between 2003 and 2015 and believe you suffered some of hearing loss or tinnitus (ringing in the ears), please call or email us to learn more. You can contact us at or call us toll free at 855-984-8100.

Wells Fargo Mortgage Modification Lawsuit

We, along with Gibbs Law Group in Oakland, California, filed a class action lawsuit against Wells Fargo Home Mortgage for wrongfully denying mortgage modifications to homeowners in need.

The Complaint can be read HERE.

Between September and October 2018, Wells Fargo sent letters to approximately 870 customers who had applied for a mortgage modification between April 13, 2010 and April 2018 but were denied a modification. Wells Fargo has admitted that these homeowners were wrongful denied a modification due to a software “glitch” with Wells Fargo’s internal system.

Of the 870 homeowners who were wrongful denied a mortgage modification, at least 545 of them lost their homes as a result.

As founding partner Rick Paul explained, “Wells Fargo must be held accountable for the harm and anxiety it has needlessly caused borrowers and their families.”

Wells Fargo has further admitted that its investigation is not complete, and more borrowers may have been affected.

For those first 870 homeowners Wells Fargo has identified, it mailed a letter explaining the “glitch” along with a check to compensate for the mistake. In many, if not all, instances, the amount offered does not fully compensate the homeowner for the wrongful denial of the mortgage modification and/or foreclosure on the home.

If you were denied a home mortgage modification by Wells Fargo between April 2010 and April 2018, you may have been affected.

In an effort to “make amends,” Wells Fargo has set aside only $8 million compensate homeowners for the wrongful denials caused by the software miscalculation. Dividing the total $8 million between 870 homeowners amounts to only $9,195 each (an average). Wells Fargo has not said how they determined how much each affected homeowner is receiving or whether those whose homes were foreclosed on received more than those who were denied a modification but not foreclosed on.

Elected officials have condemned Wells Fargo’s delay and response to its critical failure. Although the “glitch” was discovered and allegedly corrected in 2015, Wells Fargo did not publicly admit or notify homeowners of the error until August 2018—3 years later. Senator Elizabeth Warren said of Wells Fargo’s “remediation” plan: “Setting aside a few thousand dollars for each of the people affected. Pathetic.” And according to Senator Schatz, who sits on the Senate Banking Committee, Wells Fargo’s remediation plan does not offer near enough to compensate for the “devastating ripple effect” a foreclosure can have, including the “stress and trauma” of losing one’s home, “related health problems,” and “destroy[ing] people’s credit.” Senator Schwartz continued:

“It is hard to imagine how Wells Fargo’s estimate of $8 million for remediation would come close to remunerating impacted customers.”
