If you served in the US military between 2003 and 2015 and experienced hearing loss, you may be eligible to recover compensation from a mass tort suit against 3M Company, the makers of Combat Arms Earplugs. These earplugs allegedly did not function as intended, resulting in hearing loss for many of our veterans.
When you use a product, you expect it to be safe and work for its intended purpose. Sometimes, however, manufacturers put profits first. When that happens, victims can experience life-long complications. It simply is not right for a company to make a profit while other people suffer.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we believe companies should be accountable for their actions. Contact a 3M Combat Arms earplugs lawsuit lawyer today at 1-800-747-3733 to find out if you are eligible for compensation.
Eligibility for a3M Combat Arms Earplugs Lawsuit
3M Combat Arms Earplugs are small, double-ended earplugs designed to protect the hearing of our service members from loud noises such as bombs, gunfire, and other explosions.
The government alleges the earplugs were too short for proper insertion causing the plugs to move out of position over time. The government also claims the manufacturer of the earplugs was aware of this issue. Instead of doing the right thing, the company allegedly chose to continue making the earplugs and failed to notify the government.
Due to this alleged negligence, 3M Company agreed to pay $9.1 million in damages in 2018.
If you experienced full or partial hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), or loss of balance after serving in the US military and using the 3M Combat Arms earplugs, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other damages.
