# Combat Hearing Loss Lawsuit

It’s No Secret.
3M Did Not Care About Protecting Soldiers.

According to a breakout article from Newsweek published in April 2020, it became clear that 3M was not on the side of veterans and members of the military. For example, when asked if soldiers are “entitled to know” that the way 3M tested its earplugs was different from the way the device was to be used in combat, one sales manager said in a deposition “I don’t believe so.”

Even worse, 3M is not an honest company. When asked whether it was acceptable “to sell a product and conceal information where it will have a negative effect on our soldiers,” Martin Salon, a former vice president of Aearo Technologies replied, “Yes.”

It’s NOT RIGHT. 3M was knowingly negligent in putting your hearing at risk. Tell them it’s not okay to hurt soldiers and fight back by filing a lawsuit. Filing a lawsuit is the ONLY way to hold 3M accountable and hit them right where it matters the most (to them): their bottom line.

3M Paid Out $9.1 Million in Claims After U.S. Government Alleges Faulty Earplug Design

to resolve serious claims that it sold dual-ended Combat Arms Earplugs to the U.S. military without disclosing known problems with the earplugs. In fact, the U.S. Government alleged that these specific earplugs were defective and put users at risk for serious and permanent hearing loss.

Since the U.S. government complaint alleged that 3M knew about these flaws and sold the earplugs to the military despite the risks, 3M could be at fault for any hearing loss you have experienced.

The United States government’s lawsuit has resulted in significant payments by 3M. This is important because our government needs to show companies that sell products to our military that fraud of any type will not be tolerated. However, none of that $9.1M will go to injured military men and women like you.

You have to take individual legal action through a civil lawsuit to be eligible for compensation for your hearing loss from a corporation like 3M.

If you are or were in the military, wore these earplugs and suffered hearing loss, please contact us here to learn about legal action to obtain compensation. Taking individual legal action is the only way to make sure that you do not miss out on potential compensation for your hearing loss.

Contact us here if you served 2003 – 2015 and have hearing loss or tinnitus. If you are the spouse of someone with hearing loss we want to hear from you too.

“A key allegation in the lawsuits, which seek potentially billions of dollars in lawsuits, centers around the testing of the earplugs in a laboratory setting.”
