According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, approximately 2.7 million veterans receive disability benefits due to hearing problems. Many of these veterans are experiencing hearing loss or tinnitus that they allege is due to defective Combat Arms Earplugs manufactured and distributed by 3M. About 1,000 3M earplug lawsuits (and counting) have been filed alleging that the earplugs loosen in the ear canal, rendering the product ineffective and potentially leading to permanent hearing damage. Furthermore, plaintiffs allege that 3M knew about a design defect in the product, but failed to correct it.
