3M Earplugs Led to Military Hearing Loss

California Lawyers Take on 3M for Defective Earplugs

Earplugs and other products designed to improve consumer health and comfort must follow strict safety guidelines to protect their users. If you have experienced harm due to non-functioning or malfunctioning consumer goods, you may be able to collect damages for manufacturer negligence.

Reach out to Frantz Law Group, APLC if you are a Californian who was harmed by defective earplugs sold to the US military by 3M. We are here to help you explore the possibility of manufacturer liability and reimbursement for your medical and other expenses.

US Military Members May Be Eligible

In 2018, 3M paid out a $9.1 million settlement to the United States Military after claims that they had manipulated product tests and knowingly sold defective earplugs to the military between 2003 and 2015. Veterans who trusted the earplugs to protect them from hazardous sound levels in active combat zones may have instead received little or no protection due to defective designs.

Among veterans who are pursuing charges, the following symptoms are common:

  • Full or partial hearing loss
  • Tinnitus, or phantom sounds such as ringing, hissing, or buzzing
  • Auditory processing disorder
  • Loss of balance

What Compensation Could I Receive?

You may be able to recover expenses from 3M covering both the immediate and long-term effects of their manufacturing negligence. If you are experiencing hearing-related injuries such as the ones above, 3M may be asked to account for everything from medical expenses to lost wages to the lower quality of life caused by injuries from their defective earplugs.

Hundreds of lawsuits have already been filed against 3M in the wake of the government settlement, and you can join them to hold 3M accountable for providing faulty products to our service members. If you are one of the many veterans affected by this issue you are also entitled to compensation to help offset the injury you have suffered.

Don’t Wait to Start Your Case

If you think you have cause to pursue damages, it’s essential to file your case in court before the statute of limitations expires. After that deadline passes, you won’t be able to collect any compensation…no matter the struggles and expenses your hearing loss has caused.
