Cory Watson Is No Longer Taking These Cases
Cory Watson Attorneys Law Firm is Handling 3M Military Earplug Lawsuits
More than 230,000 3M defective military earplug injury lawsuits have been filed by veterans against 3M, alleging that the company provided faulty earplugs to service members from 2003 to 2016. These veterans claim the use of these defective earplugs during their military career led to hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and other related conditions. The veterans firmly believe that 3M was aware of the earplugs’ defects but still supplied them to the military.
If you’re a veteran who wore 3M earplugs during your military service and you experienced hearing loss or other related conditions, you may have grounds to file a 3M military earplug lawsuit against the company.
The 3M military earplug lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are investigating cases from veterans nationwide who suffered partial or total hearing loss as a result of defective 3M Combat Arms Ear Plugs. These earplugs were sold to the U.S. military and distributed to thousands, putting soldiers at risk for permanent hearing loss.
How Can 3M Combat Arms Ear Plugs Cause Hearing Loss?
The defect with 3M Combat Arms Ear Plugs was that they were too short for proper insertion, causing them to gradually loosen in users’ 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.”
