Helping You Seek Justice For Injuries From A Dangerous Or Defective Product

Every year a new high-profile dangerous product comes to light with the potential for serious, life-altering harm. Lately there have been lawsuits regarding products such as Roundup, cancer-causing talcum powder, defective medical devices and defective 3M military earplugs. If you or a loved one are experiencing harmful effects from these or any other dangerous products, an experienced product liability lawyer can help you pursue compensation.

At Ball, Kirk & Holm, P.C., we provide legal assistance to clients seeking justice across a wide range of product liability matters. Our firm has been in practice for over 40 years, and we have been in the Waterloo area since 1981.

Defective 3M Earplugs

If you or a loved one were deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan between 2003 and 2015 and currently suffer from hearing loss, you may have a product liability case. 3M's Combat Arms Earplugs Version 2 (CAEv2) have been deemed defective and have been tied to hearing loss in veterans. Currently, 3M has had to settle for millions of dollars in damages, including $9.1 million to the government. We have decades of success in product liability and other related personal injury cases. We can help you take action and seek justice for your suffering.

Even If It Has Been Years, You May Have A Case

We trust in products to safely fulfill their intended use. Many of us do not think about the potential for harm some of these products carry, especially when their distribution is for the sole use of safeguarding our health. What's more, some of our injuries do not become apparent until months or years after the product's use. Additionally, some of these products are recalled and some are not, so you may not know you were using a harmful product until it's too late.

To file a product liability lawsuit in Iowa, you must file within two years of suffering your injury. It should also be no more than 15 years since the product was removed from its initial delivery. However, if the product causes a disease, such as Johnson & Johnson's talcum powder linked to ovarian cancer, the 15-year window does not apply.
