3M Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2)
The Alabama product liability attorneys at Hollis, Wright, Clay & Vail, P.C. are working hard to obtain compensation for veterans who have been negatively impacted — primarily through loss of hearing, tinnitus, and loss of balance — due to the use of the faulty dual-ended Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2) developed by the Minnesota-based company 3M. The dates of use of the defective product by military personnel is between 2003 and 2015.
The allegations involve claims that 3M sold the defective dual-ended earplugs to the United States Military, knowing the earplugs did not maintain a tight enough seal and allowed dangerously loud sounds to slip through without the user’s knowledge. In 2018, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that 3M agreed to pay $9.1 million to resolve these allegations. These funds, however, went directly to the U.S. Military to cover what the military spent to purchase the product. The funds do not benefit the thousands of injured military personnel.
Currently, countless veterans are pursuing legal action against 3M for knowingly manufacturing and selling defective earplugs for use by military personnel. The earplugs did not maintain a tight enough seal and left many veterans with permanent hearing loss and damage. In 2017, more than one million veterans were receiving disability for hearing loss and more than 1.6 million were receiving disability for tinnitus which is ringing or buzzing in the ears.Why Hollis Wright
