McNicholas & McNicholas Obtains $475K Settlement for Man Suffering Hearing Loss

Posted on May 5, 2017

McNicholas & McNicholas obtained a $475,000 settlement on behalf of a man who suffered permanent hearing loss after using defective ear plugs while testing out a new rifle. The ear plugs failed to suppress the gun shots as advertised, and at the end of his shooting session, the plaintiff realized that everything sounded muffled.

Unfortunately, he never regained his hearing after the shooting session, and as a result, the plaintiff was diagnosed with permanent, partial hearing loss. McNicholas & McNicholas sued the manufacturer of the defective ear plugs for product liability, negligence and fraud.
