3M Combat Earplugs and Hearing Loss

3M Combat Earplug Lawyers

Was your hearing negatively affected by the use of 3M Combat Earplugs?

For 12 years, from 2003-2015, The 3M Company sold millions of its dual-end Combat Arms Earplugs Version 2 (CAEv2) earplugs to the Army. Countless soldiers used these earplugs while on active duty in training and deployment. Only to experience severe hearing loss afterward. The earplugs failed to keep out hazardous noise levels and did not protect soldiers from hearing how they were supposed to. As a result, hearing loss is a severe problem for soldiers.

Military headsets have a critical function. They protect soldiers’ eardrums from injury to prevent hearing loss and other problems, like ear ringing.

According to recent data, hearing loss is the most common veteran disability, affecting over 933,000 veterans. The defective 3M CAEv2 hearing aids were the only available option for hearing attenuation in the Military between 2003 and 2012. Unfortunately, they could have performed better. The lawsuits against 3M claim the earplugs contained a flaw that impaired the items’ ability to adequately protect soldiers from hearing damage associated with the typical battlefield setting, including explosions and gunfire.

The suit claims that 3M willfully committed fraud on the Army by acknowledging that the earplugs had a defect but failing to alert the Army. The lawsuits further allege that 3M knowingly falsified test results on the earplugs to escape responsibility for the shortcomings. In 2018, the 3M company agreed to pay $9.1 million to the plaintiffs to settle their case.
