About the 3M Lawsuit

3M, a multinational conglomerate based in Minnesota, provided earplugs to the U.S. military for soldiers to use in combat. 3M designed the plugs to block out loud blasts while allowing soldiers to hear crucial orders. However, 3M failed to notify the U.S. government that some of its plugs were faulty. The defective earplugs may have caused partial or complete hearing loss in members of the military. We believe that Veterans and active-duty military personnel should be paid compensation for their hardships.

How Do the Plugs Cause Harm?

The product allegedly has a design flaw that centers on the fact that the earplugs are symmetrical in nature. The standard fitting instructions provided to military personnel could mean that the earplugs loosen and allow sound to enter the ear and ultimately exact damage on the wearer’s hearing. As a result, some military personnel and Veterans may be experiencing ringing in their ears or hearing loss.

 

How Can I File a 3M Earplugs Lawsuit?

To become involved in the lawsuit, potential plaintiffs must be diagnosed by a doctor with tinnitus at or around the time of discharge from the military and/or hearing loss resulting in an impairment rating with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The relevant time of service is 2003 to 2015. Eligible servicemen and women may be entitled to compensation for their hearing loss.
