The Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Firm, LLP is working on behalf of military personnel, whether in active duty, the reserves, or retired from military service, who sustained hearing loss or tinnitus (ringing in the ear) due to noise exposure despite wearing service issued 3M Combat Arms Earplugs. The basis for these cases is the allegation that the 3M Company and its subsidiary, Aearo Technologies, sold defective Combat Arms Earplugs that were distributed to military personnel between 2003 – 2015 that failed to protect soldiers from hearing loss and/or tinnitus during combat or training, including but not limited to rifle range training.

Please be advised that you will not lose V.A. disability benefits or Social Security benefits by virtue of filing a case against 3M.

In the event that you used these 3M earplugs but nevertheless suffered hearing loss or tinnitus due to noise exposure while in the military -- even if that hearing impairment has not yet been assessed and confirmed by The  Department of Veterans Affairs -- kindly contact The Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Firm, LLP for a free consultation to evaluate whether you may be an eligible plaintiff in the products liability law suit against 3M.
