Los Angeles, CA, June 05, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Napoli Shkolnik PLLC is proud to announce that Jennifer R. Liakos
has been appointed the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in in Re: 3M Combat Arms Earplug Products Liability Litigation (Case No. 3:19md2885) by United States District Court Judge M. Casey Rogers for the Northern District of Florida Pensacola Division.
The Panel received and reviewed close to 200 applications and selected Ms. Liakos from this highly qualified field for her extensive experience handling complex, multi-district mass tort cases, including the Abilify Products Liability Litigation.
“The men and women who serve and protect this country deserve our gratitude,” said Jennifer Liakos. “It is unconscionable that our troops were sent into combat situations with defective equipment. I look forward to working with this skilled group of professionals to hold 3M accountable for the injuries its product caused.”
The lawsuit alleges that 3M sold defectively designed Combat Arms earplugs to the military and failed to warn wearers of the defect and to provide proper instructions of their use. It further alleges that the Combat Arms earplugs did not maintain a tight seal and dangerously loud sounds slipped through without the user knowing and this resulted in hearing loss, tinnitus and deafness for those military service members who were issued the Combat Arms earplugs and served between 2003 and 2015.
The litigation seeks to recover for personal injuries and future medical monitoring from the Minnesota-based manufacturer, 3M.
