If you were part of the active military and now suffer from hearing loss or tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ears) due to defective 3M earplugs, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer. Minneapolis-based 3M produced dual-ended earplugs for hearing protection from close range firearms and other loud impact noises. Due to defective design, the earplugs can loosen slightly and move from the ear canal just enough for loud sounds to cause hearing damage. According to reports, 3M knew of these design defects but knowingly sold the earplugs to the U.S. military from 2003-2015.

Our attorneys investigate claims regarding 3M Combat Arms earplugs and subsequent hearing loss and tinnitus that service members report. Sadly, the Veterans Benefits Administration reports that approximately 2.6 million veterans currently receive disability compensation for hearing loss and tinnitus. This is one of the most dominant service-related disabilities.
