Do you have a military hearing loss claim?

If you were part of the active military and are now suffering from hearing loss or tinnitus due to defective 3M earplugs, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer.   We are investigating claims on behalf of the thousands of service members deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan from 2003 to 2015 that were provided these defective earplugs.  We know there are great numbers of veterans across North Alabama and Southern Tennessee and we want to help those with hearing problems (loss and tinnitus) caused by defective earplugs.

About Defective 3M Earplugs

The 3M Company recently agreed to pay the U.S. Government $9.1 million to settle allegations that it knowingly sold defective dual-ended Combat Ear Plugs to the U.S. military without disclosing defects that limited the effectiveness of the hearing protection products.  The essence of the defect is that the earplugs were too short and could easily work themselves out of the ear during use.  Worse yet, 3M stands accused of fabricating data to make sure that these defectively designed earplugs passed governmental testing.

How do I know if I have a claim?  Veterans and active military who used the defective 3M earplug may be suffering from various symptoms, including:

  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Muffling of speech
  • Trouble hearing consonants
  • Withdrawal from conversions
  • Need for increased volume on TV and radio

If you or a loved one are suffering from hearing loss or tinnitus as a result of defective 3M military earplugs, call us today.  We can help, let us prove it.
