Cory Watson Attorneys are investigating cases from veterans nationwide who suffered partial or total hearing loss as a result of defective 3M Combat Arms EarPlugs. These earplugs were sold to the U.S. military and distributed to thousands, putting soldiers at risk for permanent hearing loss.
This lawsuit is not against the government or armed services, and it does not affect your disability benefits.
How Can 3M Combat Arms Ear Plugs Cause Hearing Loss?
The earplugs were too short for proper insertion, causing them to gradually loosen in user’s ears until they were effectively rendered useless. According to the federal complaint, the earplugs “have likely caused thousands of soldiers to suffer significant hearing loss and tinnitus in addition to exposing millions to the risk caused by 3M’s defective earplugs.”
According to the VA, “hearing problems—including tinnitus, which is a ringing, buzzing, or other type of noise that originates in the head—are by far the most prevalent service-connected disability among American Veterans.”
