3M Combat Arms™ Earplugs Lawsuit Attorneys
Your Combat Earplugs May Have Been Defective Causing Hearing Loss And Tinnitus
If you wore dual-sided 3M Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2) during foreign conflicts between 2003 and 2015 and were diagnosed with hearing loss or tinnitus (a ringing or buzzing of the ear), you may be eligible for substantial compensation.
Taking part in the 3M Combat Arms Earplugs lawsuit will not affect your disability benefits. This lawsuit is against 3M™, not the U.S. government or any branch of military.
DOJ charges say defective 3M™ earplugs put millions of military personnel at risk
The CAEv2 earplugs are double ended and were originally designed to allow use either as a full blockage plug or as a partially-opened plug that allowed the user to hear voice commands and surrounding noises.
However, reports show the defective design of these plugs rendered them too short for many service members’ ear canals, causing them to come loose without the soldier knowing it. When the earplugs are not firmly in place, it allows harmful gunfire or blast noises to penetrate into the ears at close range, resulting in hearing loss or tinnitus.
Millions Of Veterans Were Put At Risk
VA records estimate that at least 52% of service members suffer significant hearing damage during deployment and that more than 1 million veterans receive disability benefits for combat related hearing loss.
This includes veterans that attended combat training domestically, as well as those serving overseas in the following locations:
