Now Is The Right Time to Seek Compensation for Hearing Damage Due to 3M’s Combat Earplugs
Two years after 3M paid $9.1 million to settle a government lawsuit, thousands of military service members and contractors are demanding their own payment from 3M.
When a whistleblower complaint forced 3M into paying a $9.1MM settlement for knowingly selling faulty earplugs, many service members wondered to themselves, “why aren’t I seeing any of that money?” Now they are taking action.
According to the Hearing Health Foundation, 1.16 million veterans received disability for hearing loss and 1.79 million for tinnitus. How many of these cases could have been because of 3M’s millions of faulty earplugs?
How Do I Qualify For Compensation?
Active service members and contractors from 2003 to 2015 that used 3M’s CAEv2 Combat Earplugs and have suffered hearing loss or tinnitus may be entitled to compensation.
This could be 100,000’s of lives affected over a business deal that was a small, small fraction of a multi-billion dollar corporation’s revenue.
And so far only a few hundred cases have been brought forward. There are thousands more that could be pursued.
Is a Lawsuit Going to be Worth My Time?
While outcomes depend on unique experiences with 3M’s CAEv2 earplugs and cannot be guaranteed, going forward with litigation is a simple and no-risk proposition for service members.
Law offices only take on cases likely to win, and you may be surprised to find out your specific circumstances easily qualify.
Service members should act fast – legal action is taken in large groups to lower costs, and as soon as a group’s action starts, the window to join is closed.
