Oliver Law Group, P.C. Represents Injured Veterans in Troy, MI
From 2003 to 2015, 3M supplied the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines with earplugs. Although the 3M Combat Arms Earplugs were allegedly designed to protect military personnel from hearing loss and other injuries that can result from exposure to loud noises, a defect in the earplugs rendered them ineffective. The defect left many veterans of the War in Afghanistan and The Iraq War with injuries after their time in service.

How Were the 3M Earplugs Defective?
The defective 3M Combat Arms Earplugs were too small to fully protect the ear. This manufacturing flaw made them too short to be completely inserted in the inner ear, subjecting military personnel to loud sounds. Additionally, the earplugs could potentially loosen and fall out of the ear because they were not fully inserted.
What Injuries Did Use of 3M Defective Earplugs Cause?
Members of the military are exposed to very loud noises during their service. Without the proper equipment, these sounds can severely injure the ears and affect their functionality.
What are the results of using defective, inadequate earplugs in endless combat situations overseas?
