Assisting Veterans And Military Members With 3M Earplugs Cases
The men and women who serve and have served in our armed forces deserve our appreciation and respect. They constantly put themselves in harm’s way, making sacrifices each day so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we cherish so deeply.
Many of these military members would work on tasks that subjected them to potential hearing loss. Because so many veterans and service members had suffered from prolonged problems, the military provided soldiers with earplugs that they purchased from 3M.
The 3M earplugs had two differently-sized ends, as it was theorized that this would allow the plugs to form a seal in the ear of any person who used them. Unfortunately, this was not the case – some who used the plugs received little to no protection at all due the lack of a seal.
To make matters worse, it is believed that 3M knew that the earplugs it was selling to the Department of Defense were defective, and continued to sell the plugs to the military anyway. This action placed many more military members at risk of permanent or severe hearing loss.
What This Means For You
If you used 3M earplugs while serving in the military and suffered hearing loss, you may have a personal injury claim for compensation. Several individuals have already come forward in Mississippi and across the county with claims against 3M.
