Suffering from hearing loss despite using 3M combat arms earplugs? You may be due compensation for your losses caused by defective earplug design.

Your hearing is a valuable sense, so when it’s damaged, it can cause a lot of distress and trouble for you. Unfortunately, you may have suffered these losses because of defective products. You may not have realized there was something wrong until your hearing was already permanently damaged. 

If you were military personnel between 2003 and 2015, you may have suffered hearing loss due to your earplugs, and you may be eligible for a 3M Combat Arms earplugs class action lawsuit. Your lawyer at Craig Swapp & Associates can give you the details you need for your claim. 

3M Combat Arms Earplugs May Cause Hearing Loss

Your hearing is a sense many of us take for granted. Many of us are also exposed to loud noise that could damage our hearing over time because of our careers. That’s a major problem many people in the military between 2003 and 2015 are suffering from now. 

3M Combat Arms earplugs were meant to protect your hearing and protect you from tinnitus, a condition that causes a ringing sound in your ears. This condition may require hearing aids and other treatment just to make hearing and sleeping easier. 

Because the earplugs failed to offer adequate protection, many members of the military are now seeking compensation through a class action lawsuit, or mass tort, against the company. 3M can be held at fault for the damage done to your ears due to their defective design. 

Seeking Compensation in a Class Action Lawsuit

When you’ve lost your hearing due to defective earplugs, you have a chance to get compensated through a class action lawsuit. However, injury victims all over Idaho, Utah, and Washington may have questions about what compensation they’re due. 

Your compensation should cover all your damages, or losses caused by the accident. That means your economic damages, or financial losses, as well as your non-economic damages. Your non-economic losses should cover the intangible mental suffering you may have suffered because of your hearing loss. 

Below are just a few of the damages you could be eligible for: 

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Household accommodations, like alarms
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
