Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys Now Reviews 3M Combat Earplug Cases Related to Permanent Hearing Loss and Tinnitus

$9.1MM settlement between U.S. DOJ and 3M to resolve allegations of defective earplugs will not be distributed directly to military personnel with hearing loss.

Members of our military shouldn’t have to worry about risk of injury from the home front. That's why we're prepared to pursue compensation for those suffering hearing loss due to the negligence of 3M.”

— Glen Lerner, ESQ.

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a recent settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice, 3M company based out of Minnesota agreed to pay $9.1 million to resolve allegations that they knowingly sold defective earplugs to the U.S. Military. What is noteworthy about the settlement is that proceeds will not be distributed directly to military personnel who suffered permanent hearing loss and/or tinnitus. However, Glen Lerner announced his legal team will pursue civil lawsuits on behalf of the injured to obtain compensation for hearing loss damages.

Legal Help for Soldiers Who Suffered Hearing Loss

3M company manufactured and sold millions of dollars’ worth of Dual Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs to the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency over an approximated 12 year timeframe. Subsequently, thousands of military personnel deployed both domestically and in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2003 – 2015 received these earplugs as standard issue equipment.

In the initial lawsuit, The Department of Justice alleged that 3M knew:

Earplugs were too short and did not fit well.
Earplugs were unable to effectively mitigate excessive noise as they would loosen in some user’s ears.

Due to these alleged product design defects, thousands of military personnel now reportedly suffer from complete or partial hearing loss and/or tinnitus.

Glen Lerner wants to make it clear that U.S. military personnel put at risk of injury have the right to seek compensation for their injuries. ”Members of our military put their lives at risk to protect our country from outside entities. First, they shouldn’t have to worry about potential risks of injury from the home front. Second, they should know that their long-term quality of life and care isn’t something that should be overlooked. That is why my legal team is prepared to pursue individual compensation claims for those suffering hearing loss and other damages due to the negligent acts of 3M.”

Military personnel who served between 2003-2015 were issued 3M earplugs during service and now have permanent hearing loss and/or tinnitus are invited to contact Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys for a free defective combat earplug case evaluation. As time restrictions may apply, now is the time to discuss a potential case in pursuit of compensation for injuries and other damages. Call toll-free 1-800-GET-GLEN (1-800-438-4536), or submit a case review form online.

IRS Changes Cellphone Deduction Laws, mobilityView the Only Way to Comply Says America's Leading Tax Planning Expert

mobilityView recommended in the 2019, 36th edition, of Jeff A. Schnepper ‘s bestselling book, ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Toronto, 14th January 2019 – Jeff A. Schnepper (Cherry Hill, NJ) – America’s leading, if not number one, tax planning expert for the last 35 years is recommending that every employer and employee in the USA use mobilityView’s Mobile Cost Management (MCM) solution.

Jeff’s book ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’ is now in its 36th edition and is a testament not only to his stature and expertise in the USA, but also to the popularity of his book. For over three decades ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’ has helped business owners and employees save money on their taxes. In all this time Jeff has not seen a solution, such as mobilityView’s, capable of tracking every call, text message and data byte in real-time, delivering detailed tax compliant reports showing business / personal usage and cost calculations.

“Effective January 1st 2018 there have been significant changes to the Tax Code that affect every employee and employer in the country. A solution like mobilityView is the best tool that can keep employers and employees tax compliant as it pertains to the specific changes in the Tax Code around cellphone and portable computer deductions. I was so impressed that they are featured in the 36th edition of my best selling book ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’,” said Jeff Schnepper.

With many individuals and companies still unaware of the tax exposure with respect to their cellphones, mobilityView CEO, Thom Damstra, provides some timely advice in managing this issue, “Global tax authorities have for years required employers and employees to keep a mileage book for the personal use of a corporately provided automobile (corporate provided asset / car) and / or the business usage of a personal automobile (bring your own asset / car). Effective January 1st 2018 the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) now requires a mileage book for the cellphone and wireless subscription plan. Business and personal usage is required to be documented and substantiated for every call, sms, and packet of data. The new IRS requirement applies in ALL scenarios including:

• Corporate paid cellphone and / or wireless subscription plan
• Employee provided cellphone and / or wireless subscription plan with reimbursement via a Stipend (monthly allowance, defined by the employer, and paid to the employee for business use of a cellphone), full expense reimbursement or partial expense reimbursement

All the following wireless deployment strategies, used by employers, are affected by the new changes from the IRS:

• COPE (Company Owned/Personally Enabled)
• COBO (Company Owned/Business Only)
• COLD (Corporately Owned Locked Down)
• CYOD (Choose Your Own Device)
• BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
• BYOO (Bring Your Own Operator)
• Stipend (monthly allowance, defined by the employer, and paid to the employee for business use of a cellphone).”

Consider purchasing ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’ by Jeff Schnepper to obtain a 60 day free trial, and a special purchase discount, for mobilityView’s MCM (Mobile Cost Management) cloud service, which can track usage & cost to the penny – all calls, text messages and data – and automatically creates detailed tax compliant reports showing business / personal usage and cost calculations.

The MCM Platform by mobilityView is a cloud service that enables individuals to properly account for the business and personal usage and cost of a mobile smart device (smartphone, tablet, phablet, etc.). The technology has been patented in the USA (and in 3 continents) and is patents pending in over 83 other countries. The tool is great for any individual to automate their mobile smart device expense claim process for economic reimbursement and accounts for voice, SMS, data and roaming scenarios. The solution is also highly applicable for businesses of any size, seeking to only pay for business usage of mobile assets. It provides a complete view of all mobile costs, previously not thought possible.

Employers can sleep at night knowing that their costs are contained and employees can experience mobile democracy – they are freed up to do whatever they want on their mobile device: Play video games, watch movies; engage in social media with utter privacy. “The MCM Platform provides clear unequivocal and immediate return on investment for businesses of any size”, said Thom Damstra, CEO of mobilityView. “The flexibility of the platform opens up the tantalizing possibilities to simultaneously reduce cost, provide new flexi benefits, and increase the usage of mobility within any organization. Until now these three simultaneous benefits have been impossible to deliver.”

About Jeff A. Schnepper

Jeff A. Schnepper (Cherry Hill, NJ) is the author of multiple books on finance and taxation, including all previous editions of ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’. He is a financial, tax, and legal advisor for Estate Planning of Delaware Valley and operates a tax, accounting, and legal practice in Cherry Hill, NJ.
He has been invited to the White House to consult in tax law changes and has testified multiple times before the Senate Finance Committee and The House Ways & Means Committee.

The Royal Navy invites you to SMi’s annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference in February

SMi's 4th annual Maritime Reconnaissance  and Surveillance Technology conference 2019

SMi’s 4th annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference 2019

Rear Admiral (Ret’d) Anthony Rix, Former Flag Officer Sea Training, Royal Navy invites you to Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology 2019

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “It is with great pleasure that I invite you to participate in the 4th annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology event taking place between the 6th and 7th February 2019 in Rome.

We live in an increasingly interconnected world in which developments in technology are enabling a greater understanding of activity at sea. This has implications for almost everything that takes place in territorial waters and on the high seas, both legal and illegal. Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance activities are carried out by various platforms in varying domains and results in maritime situational awareness for military and also commercial operators.

This international event brings together experts involved in the development and management of unmanned maritime systems, airborne ISR platforms, and space-based assets to discuss contemporary challenges at sea and how to best tackle them. The application of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and other technologies will further enhance our capabilities. I hope that we will also touch on these areas.

There is therefore a need for a high-level meeting that brings together senior military leadership, commercial shipping companies, project decision makers, and technical experts alongside cutting edge industry solution providers to collaborate on future endeavours that will not only enhance maritime situational awareness but also empower nations and commercial companies to better secure their interests.

Once again, I am delighted to lend my support as the Chairman of this conference because I believe that the Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology event is the best forum for fruitful international collaboration.
Could I politely ask that you pay particular attention to our conference agenda which was put together with great care to give you the very best opportunity to learn from subject matter experts relating to the enhancement of maritime situational awareness.

I urge you to join us in February 2019 with many like-minded professionals to ensure that you too can participate in and benefit from this unique opportunity.

Yours Sincerely,

Rear Admiral (Ret’d) Anthony Rix,
Former Flag Officer Sea Training, Royal Navy”

Shopify: $11.4 Million Ecom Store Shutdown

Thunder Tactical Rifle Kits

Thunder Tactical Rifle Kits

Thunder Tactical Rifle Kits

East Coast’s Largest Rifle Kit Manufacturer Goes Independent

Thunder Tactical is a leading 308 rifle and tactical shooting component manufacturer and retailer, based in Daytona Beach, Florida.”

— Thunder Tactical

DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a shocking development, Daytona Beach business Thunder Tactical recently shuttered its Shopify store in response to tighter restrictions from the e-commerce platform. The company is a registered manufacturer and retailer of 308 rifle and tactical shooting components, which are both high quality and completely legal.

But Shopify’s prohibition on the sale of certain guns, accessories, and ammunition goes around this, banning gun sales in spite of the law. CEO and Thunder Tactical owner, John, said: “It’s always a pity to see restrictions like this when you’re a retailer working completely within the law. We produce a high-quality product with a lot of demand, and we made a home for ourselves on Shopify – it’s a real shame that didn’t work out.”

Fans and loyal customers of Florida’s leading rifle kit manufacturer have nothing to fear, however, as Thunder Tactical is officially independent! With a huge array of AR and pistol kits, accessories, handguards, jigs, and apparel available, the $11.4 million company has taken their sales online themselves. And they’re not showing signs of slowing down any time soon!

“We’ve made it easier than ever for our clients to buy anything from 80 percent AR 15 lowers and pistol and rifle kits to our robust accessory and apparel lines. We’d have liked Shopify to work out in the long run, but truth be told, this has actually made it easier for people to shop with us. Just find the product you’re looking for on our website and place an order – we’ve integrated the process and made Thunder Tactical more accessible than ever.”

Thunder Tactical is a leading 308 rifle and tactical shooting component manufacturer and retailer, based in Daytona Beach, Florida. Creating high-quality 80% lowers, receivers and kits since 2014, they’ve created a trusted name for themselves as a trusted brand within the industry. Family-owned and operated, Thunder Tactical helps gun owners get the product they need at a level of quality they deserve.

Large-Scale Vehicle Barrier Deployment Supports America’s Top New Year’s Day Event

Meridian Vehicle Barriers support the entry to Tournament of Roses Parade grandstands

Archer 1200 barriers at the Rose Bowl Game public FanFest

Meridian barriers at the Rose Bowl Stadium entrance

We built the Archer 1200 to fill an important need gap in urban security. There is no product in the marketplace that performs to testing standards and delivers the flexibility and ease of deployment.”

— Meridian CEO Peter Whitford

PASADENA, CA, UNITED STATES, January 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Security was top of mind as an estimated 700,000 spectators lined the streets of Pasadena to view the 2019 Tournament of Roses Parade. Dozens of Meridian Rapid Defense Group’s Archer 1200 vehicle mitigation barriers were on hand to ensure that crowds had state-of-the-art defense from vehicle encroachment. Protection also extended to the Rose Bowl Game and float viewing areas immediately following the event.

The events draw attention on a worldwide stage and the Pasadena Police, Pasadena Fire and Department of Homeland Security coordinate on safety planning efforts.

“Our number one priority is the safety and security of all of our guests, participants and all others who play a part in the success of our events,” said David Eads, CEO of the Tournament of Roses, at the pre-event public safety press conference.

Flexible deployment and portability were key requirements in supporting the series of activities that began at dawn New Year’s Day and extended through January 3rd. Archer 1200 vehicle barriers deployed near the main grandstands at the start of the parade route needed to provide protection while efficiently allowing the flow of thousands of ticket-holding pedestrians. In addition, the security perimeter needed to accommodate quick access for emergency vehicles. In fact, the Chinese American Heritage Foundation’s float required swift handling as it suffered a debilitating fire when it neared the bend in the route from Orange Grove to Colorado Boulevard. Vehicle barriers at the Rose Bowl Stadium also needed to allow for changing conditions.

“As you can imagine, there are a lot of moving parts to an event like this,” said Rose Bowl Stadium Chief Operating Officer George Cunningham. “We have a hundred thousand people to admit into the stadium, team buses that need access and thousands more enjoying the public FanFest on the Rose Bowl grounds. A security solution has to be not only effective but capable of adapting to a changing set of requirements as the event goes on.”

The Archer 1200 barriers are also outfitted with advertising placards used to promote the event and its sponsors. Visitors from Washington and Ohio in town to support teams in the Rose Bowl Game were eager to engage with the signage as fan photo ops. “I think they are great,” said Ohio State University supporter Brian Ingram. “You need to have security and these look like they would certainly do the job, but they also fit in like they belong.”

The Archer 1200 barrier is a certified solution meeting both U.S. and European standards of protection. It provides a vital alternative to ad hoc measures that are not tested for effectiveness. These include cement rails and plastic water barriers which are designed to keep cars on the freeway as well as public vehicles like trash trucks, fire engines, and squad cars. The latter poses a significant risk of equipment costs should an incident occur.

“We developed the Archer 1200 to fill an important need gap in urban security,” said Peter Whitford, CEO of Meridian Rapid Defense Group. “There simply is no product in the marketplace that performs to testing standards and delivers the flexibility and ease of deployment.”

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig offers reduced rate legal services to help furloughed government employees.

Many of us have previously worked in the government, we understand the concerns of our community and neighbors during this government shut down.”

— Thomas Dunlap, Founding Partner

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, a leading corporate and intellectual property law firm with law offices across the U.S., Puerto Rico, London, Toronto, and China, announces that they will offer discounted legal services in two programs for furloughed government employees and contractors.

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig is a veteran-owned law firm that provides businesses and individuals with a full array of business and estate legal services. Many of the lawyers are also former government workers coming from the DoD, DOJ and NSA. “Because many of us have previously worked in the government, we understand the concerns of our community and neighbors during this government shut down,” stated Tom Dunlap, Partner. “We want to help our government clients as well as family and friends who are either sitting at home stressing about not going to work– or, worse, working without pay.”

As the government enters its twentieth day of the shutdown, Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig announced that the discounted legal services programs for affected government workers will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the shutdown.

In the first program, Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig is helping government workers start up new enterprises, form their LLC, file their trademark, or get their inventive idea off the shelf and a patent filed. David Ludwig, Partner, stated it this way, “While we sympathize with the personal impact of the shutdown on their lives, the downtime could provide an excellent opportunity to work on a shelved invention or kick off a new startup.” During the shut-down, DBL is charging half of its standard legal fees for basic business start-up services and offering free initial consultations to furloughed government workers.

In the second program, Dunlap Bennett and Ludwig is assisting government workers with legal advice about how to keep their government clearances. “Our thoughts are with those government employees suffering the consequences of not receiving pay as a result of the government shutdown. As a former Army officer who worked side-by-side many high-quality civilian government employees and contractors my heart goes out to these government employees, contractors, and their families. Our firm is committed to doing whatever it can to assist government personnel in these difficult times”, stated Ellis Bennett, Partner.

These attorney consultations are designed to help government workers with advice on getting through financial difficulty without damaging their credit rating and jeopardizing their clearance. During the shut-down for furloughed government employees, DBL is charging half of its consultation rate for these services.
