Whether during training, on lengthy deployments, or in combat, America’s brave servicemen and women face risks every day. One of those risks, however, didn’t come from an enemy or a weapon. Instead, corporate greed and negligence by the manufacturer of defective earplugs exposed millions of veterans to a significantly increased chance of permanent hearing loss and related problems.
If you served in the military between 2003 to 2015, there is a good chance you were supplied with Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs (CAEv2) manufactured by 3M. These earplugs were supposed to protect servicemembers from the hearing damage that can be caused by loud blasts from explosions and weapons fire. Unfortunately, design and manufacturing defects rendered the earplugs ineffective and allowed dangerously loud sounds to enter the ear canals of countless soldiers, leaving many with permanent hearing loss, tinnitus, and other injuries.
We serve those who serve us by obtaining full compensation for Combat Arms earplug injuries
At Berman & Simmons, we are grateful for the sacrifices servicemembers and their families make for our country. Those sacrifices should not include injuries and losses caused by defective products manufactured by negligent corporations.
Berman & Simmons is pursuing compensation for the damages suffered by active duty personnel and veterans who used 3M Combat Arms earplugs. We have the experience, legal skill, and medical resources to get you full compensation and to hold corporations accountable for the harm they inflict when they put their profits ahead of the safety of those who use their products. We are proud to fight on behalf of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines in Maine and throughout New England who are dealing with needless injuries from defective earplugs.
