3M Earplugs® Military Hearing Loss
3M’s dual-ended Combat Arms earplugs were standardly issued in several branches of the United States military from 2003-2015. Tinnitus, hearing loss and other hearing impairments are the most common service-connected disabilities for men and women in the armed forces, according to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs. Faulty product design inhibited proper insertion into the users’ ears, and the earplugs could not maintain a tight seal exposing the soldiers to dangerously loud sounds.
The dual-ended Combat Arms earplugs fulfilled an immediate need for hearing protection for servicemen and women of the United States military. More than a million veterans received disability compensation for hearing loss in 2017, and almost two million received compensation for tinnitus, according to the Hearing Health Foundation. Thousands of American soldiers received 3M dual-ended Combat Arms earplugs, especially those deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in the early 2000s. The creator of the defective earplugs is Aearo Technologies Inc., and the company 3M purchased the company in 2008.
3M® Agrees to Pay $9.1 Million
On July 26, 2018, the Department of Justice announced that 3M agreed to pay $9.1 million. 3M decided to resolve the allegations of knowingly selling the dual-ended Combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2 (CAEv2) to the United States military without disclosing defects that hampered the effectiveness of the hearing protection device.
On June 29,2020, the judge presiding over all federal 3M military earplug lawsuits announced that the first bellwether case in the litigation will go to trial on April 5, 2021.
