3M Earplug Lawsuit Attorneys



If you’ve served in the U.S. armed forces, you’re probably no stranger to extraordinarily loud sounds, whether it’s F-16 jets screaming off the tarmac or random blasts of enemy mortar fire. Thankfully, unlike past generations, today’s service members are provided with advanced ear protection. But what if that gear doesn’t work as intended?

If you’ve been diagnosed with hearing loss or tinnitus after serving in the U.S. military, it’s possible that your condition can be traced back to defective 3M earplugs. In 2018, 3M paid a $9.1 million settlement to the Department of Defense after it was discovered that the company’s Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs had a defect that rendered them ineffective. The claim alleged 3M knew about the defect but failed to disclose the problem.

At The Law Offices of Richard J. Serpe, PC, we can review the facts of your case for free to determine if you may have grounds for a product liability claim. Our 3M earplug lawsuit attorneys have an in-depth knowledge of the case law and statutes pertaining to these claims. We will help you make informed decisions and pursue the highest settlement possible. Call 877-544-5323 to schedule a free consultation.

Am I Eligible For Compensation?

Product manufacturers can often be held strictly liable for injuries caused by their goods. That means the plaintiff doesn’t have to prove negligence or intent as a precondition to obtaining financial recovery.

If you meet the following criteria, you may have grounds for a product liability claim against 3M:

  1. You served in the U.S. armed forces between 2003 and 2015;
  2. You used 3M’s Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs during your military career; and
  3. You’ve been diagnosed with tinnitus or hearing loss.

Strict Deadlines Apply to Product Liability Lawsuits
