3M Military Earplugs Lawsuit Guide

3M Military Earplugs Lawsuit Guide | The Lidji Firm | Personal Injury Lawyer

The 3M Combat Arms double-ended earplugs were purchased by the U.S. military to solve a serious problem: Service-members getting hearing loss or damage. Conditions like tinnitus and complete or partial hearing loss in or both ears can be common in veterans.

As of 2017, more than 2.7 million veterans were receiving disability benefits for some kind of hearing loss or damage, and more than 20% of all vets who served between 2003 and 2015 are receiving disability benefits for hearing loss or damage.

The 3M earplugs were designed and marketed to the U.S. Department of Defense as a solution to this problem. The earplugs would securely fit inside the ears of service-members and prevent repeated loud noise from penetrating the ear canals and causing hearing damage.

The only problem is that they didn’t work. The 3M earplugs simply didn’t securely seal inside the ear canal. This led service members operating in noisy environments to suffer serious and often permanent hearing loss or damage.

The Lidji Firm attorneys are fighting for justice and compensation on behalf of veterans whose hearing was damaged while wearing 3M earplugs. Lawsuits against 3M are in progress across the country, and if you’re a veteran who suffered hearing loss or damage that can be attributed to 3M’s earplugs, you may be eligible for compensation, too.

A Potentially Dangerously Faulty Product

There is serious evidence suggesting that the manufacturers knew about the failures long before they became public. 3M has already paid a $9.1 million settlement to the Justice Department
to resolve allegations that they knew about the defects in the product and failed to warn the military. As part of the deal, 3M did not admit any liability and the Justice Department did not make a determination of liability.

The government’s lawsuit alleged that 3M employees knew about defects in the earplugs that prevented it from forming a tight seal as early as 2000, while the company was still selling them to the military as late as 2015. The earplugs are double-tipped with tips of slightly different size, and 3M claimed that by using one tip or the other, every single user would be able to find a perfect seal. Scores of civil lawsuits filed on behalf of service members make similar allegations.

Client Testimonials

As a former client, I would highly recommend The Lidji Firm to handle your personal injury case.  I am an ex-baseball player who had pre-existing back injuries and was worried that would affect the outcome in my case.

The Lidji Firm handled the issue of my pre-existing injuries and my settlement was a game changer.  If you have been injured for any reason, you should call The Lidji Firm today to protect your rights.

I would recommend The Lidji Firm team to handle your case.  The Lidji Firm team was dedicated to prosecuting my case and went beyond the call of duty obtaining me my settlement.

When I first called The Lidji Firm, I thought was a minor injury when in fact, I ended up getting back surgery as a result of my injuries.

The Lidji Firm team assisted me with locating doctors that were both top-notch and who waited for payment until after my case was settled, so my credit was not affected by the accident. If you are in a trucking accident like I was, I would call The Lidji Firm today.
