3M Combat Earplugs
The men and women serving our nation in our armed forces deserve only the best equipment to keep them safe and prevent short and long term injury. From 2003 – 2015, 3M sold combat earplugs that did not fully stop sound from entering a servicemember’s ear after multiple wears causing partial temporary or permanent hearing loss as a consequence of their defective product. If you are a service member who used those earplugs while in the service of our nation and has suffered hearing loss, our attorneys would be honored to fight for you.
Essure was marketed by its manufacturer, Bayer, as a more palatable way to surgically sterilize women which were inserted into the fallopian tubes.

When a patient gets an MRI, gadolinium is used to enhance the X-ray so the doctors can get an accurate photo of what they’re examining. However, contrary to the manufacturer’s warnings, gadolinium can build up much faster in the body due to it not being expelled from your system in a timely manner. This buildup has caused issues in those with already precarious kidney problems and can even lead to complications among healthy people through arm and leg pain, a burning sensation or other symptoms. Contact our firm today if you fear you’re a victim of gadolinium retention.
One of the most painful experiences in life is a hernia issue and, unlike many organ injuries, a hernia is not predisposed to heal on its own. Therefore a mesh is often needed to pick up the slack and help ensure that the patient can have a healing process that is helpful. However, reports of hernia mesh failing, balling up, or other instances have plagued patients with infections, pain, a reoccurrence of a hernia, and other negative side effects which may arguably be worse than the initial injury. If you or anyone you know is the victim of a failed hernia mesh, Bader Scott attorneys are available to ensure every expense you’ve incurred as a result.
When many Georgians used the popular weed killer Roundup, the vast majority were likely not expecting to contact a fatal disease which can impact or end their life. Various reports of those who used Roundup on a regular basis being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma have indicated that the company that makes Roundup, Monsatano, had knowledge of this link for decades. If you have been diagnosed with a serious illness as a result of your usage of Roundup, you should immediately contact our office to help ensure that you do not financially suffer as you fight for your health.
Proton Pump Inhibitor
Proton Pump Inhibitors may not be known to many Georgians by that name. However, the names Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid should ring a bell to the many who relied on these common drugs for heartburn relief or relief from other pain. The information has linked these proton pump inhibitors to possible kidney damage which can form short- and long-term complications for anyone who took these drugs. If you or someone you know has kidney damage as a result of taking these drugs, our firm is ready to help ensure that the drug companies make you whole again.
