Valuable Guidance from 3M Defective Earplug Lawyers

3M Combat Earplug Lawyers

 

Our 3M defective earplug lawyers in PA provide clients valuable guidance about recovering their damages from 3M after sustaining serious injuries as a result of using their product. Many members of the U.S. military have suffered hearing loss or deafness after using defecting earplugs manufactured by 3M Company. In mid-2018, 3M Company agreed to pay the U.S. Justice Department $9.1 million in a settlement for knowingly selling defective earplugs, specifically the dual-ended model CAEv2 Combat Arms Earplugs.

 

As part of the terms of the settlement, 3M Company did not admit guilt, but in the wake of a whistleblower company that came forward about the defective earplugs, civil lawsuits are now in progress. At Wieand Law Firm, LLC, our 3M defective earplug lawyers in PA represent victims who wish to pursue their own settlements with the manufacturer for the harm to them. Call our office in PA today to find out more about how our 3M defective earplug lawyers may be able to get you the compensation you deserve.

 

3M Defective Earplug Lawyers in PA You Can Count On

 

When Americans join the U.S. military, they dedicate their lives in service to their country. Their well-being is in large part dependent on what the military provides them, including protective equipment to keep them as safe as possible while on the battlefield. However, service members are sometimes the victims of defective equipment, including earplugs that are supposed to protect them from harmful sources such as nearby gunfire. Hearing problems such as tinnitus is the single greatest service-connected disability among military veterans, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

 

Over a million former service members were receiving disability benefits in 2017 for their hearing loss. More than 1.6 million were receiving disability benefits for tinnitus. The sad fact is, many more service members do not apply for the benefits they so richly deserve for their damages.

 

Though military agencies now provide hearing protection to active-duty members of the armed services, but if the defective 3M earplugs were worn, they were not actually protected. And though the Justice Department received a settlement from 3M, no compensation was earmarked for the affected service members.
