Should You File a 3M Military Earplugs Lawsuit?
Any person who served in the armed forces after 2003 is at risk of developing hearing loss and tinnitus from defective 3M Combat Arms Earplugs. Those who were deployed to conflict areas are at a higher risk level, mostly from the two major threats for hearing loss from: acute and sudden high-impact noises from explosives and weaponry, and or on-going loud engine noises, such as those that emit from 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.

- 3M’s Military Earplugs are only effective when a tight seal is maintained.
- Defective 3M Military Earplugs have been linked to an increase in hearing loss
and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) among American armed forces members in recent decades.
- As of 2015, 1 million U.S. veterans claimed annual disability benefits for full or partial hearing loss as a result of their service, according to the U.S. Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs
- The 3M Earplug defect was first detected during internal product testing in 2000 by the original manufacturer.
