Who is most at risk for developing hearing loss from 3M Combat Arms Earplugs?
For armed forces members who are deployed to conflict areas, there are two major threats for hearing loss: acute and sudden high-impact noises from explosives and weaponry and on-going loud engine noises, such as those emitted by tracked vehicles, helicopters and aircraft. Exposure to either of these classes of noise while wearing defective 3M earplugs can result in hearing loss. The shaft of the earplugs is too short for some ear canals; when this is the case, the device can shift imperceptibly and leave a combatant exposed to hearing loss without their knowledge.

We’re not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even lifelong, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
