Combat Earplug Lawsuit Attorneys Who Fight For You

The Carlson Law Firm stands with the men and women who wear a uniform. Our attorneys are ready to begin investigating your case. We will help you understand your rights and will fight tirelessly on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve.

Veterans with hearing problems who served in any branch of the military between 2003 and 2015 may be able to file a 3M earplug lawsuit. If you are a veteran or know a veteran with a hearing problem, contact The Carlson Law Firm.

The Issue

A whistleblower lawsuit brought by the federal government against Minnesota-based 3M alleged that the company knowingly supplied defective Combat Arms Earplugs to the U.S. military. The company is accused of violating the “False Claims Act” by selling the defective products, falsifying test results and not disclosing the design defect.

The Injury

At some point in their careers, those serving in the military will be exposed to high-intensity noise levels. This is especially true for those who deploy to war zones. For this reason, combat soldiers need in-ear hearing protection. Veteran affairs reports show that hearing loss and tinnitus rose dramatically between 2003-2015, peaking in 2012.

The Remedy

The lawsuits against 3M will be litigated as a mass tort. This means that people will need to file their own individual lawsuit; however, cases will likely be consolidated in front of a single judge. Having a qualified 3M earplug lawsuit attorney on your side building your case can make a difference in your recovery.
