A Background of The 3M Defective Ear Plugs Case
3M is a well known company that secured a defense contract with the United States Government. In July 2018, the court ruled that 3M was negligent for a product defect. The company agreed to pay injured claimants compensation, totalling millions of dollars, in damages. It was found that 3M knew they were selling the U.S. military defective earplugs that caused them to become loose inside of the ear. Because wearers of the earplugs would not have been aware of the loosen product, dangerous soundwaves could enter the ear canal and cause the eardrum injury.
Between 2003 and 2015, millions of U.S. Military personnel were issued the 3M ear plugs. At this time it is unknown how many people suffered loss of hearing, but thought to be in the tens of thousands.
If you were actively serving in the Marine Corps, AirForce, Army, Navy, National Guard, Coast Guard, or any other branch, and suffered hearing loss, you should call a 3M defective ear plugs lawyer to find out if you have a claim.
