3M Ear Plug Hearing Loss and Tinnitus Claims

From January 2006 to December of 2015, it is alleged that 3M, through a company they acquired Aearo, knew that the earplugs they manufactured and sold to the United States military were too short for correct insertion into the ear of the soldiers using them and therefore did not work properly. A whistleblower lawsuit went on to allege that 3M was aware of this problem and did not disclose the problems with the earplugs when selling them to the United States government. 3M denied those allegations but did settle the whistleblower lawsuit for over nine million dollars.

The earplugs in dispute are the standard issued by all U.S. military services earplugs, the combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2 (CAEv2). If you used earplugs while in the armed services at anytime between 2005 and 2015 it is likely that you used the alleged defective earplugs. If you or a loved one used these earplugs and are experiencing or have been diagnosed with:

  • TINNITUS ( A ringing or loud buzzing in your ears)

You could be owed significant compensation for your claims. The allegations of the whistleblower lawsuit were that Aearo Technologies and therefore 3M knew of the alleged design defect which allegedly caused these ear plugs to fail. Over two million veterans are receiving compensation for hearing loss as a disability payment and your claims against 3M and Aearo Technologies could be affected if not brought in a timely manner.
