Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys Now Reviews 3M Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs Cases Linked to Hearing Loss in U.S. Military Veterans
New Orleans, LA. (February 15, 2019) — Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys announced that their Louisiana law firm now reviews 3M Company (3M) Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs, Version 2, injury claims on behalf of U.S. military veterans seeking compensation for permanent hearing loss and/or tinnitus and other damages due to alleged product defects. Individual civil lawsuit claims for compensation must be filed as none of the $9.1 million settlement 3M recently agreed to pay the United States Department of Justice (DOJ)—to resolve allegations of supplying the U.S. Military defective earplugs between 2003 to 2015—will be distributed directly to military personnel who suffered permanent hearing loss and/or tinnitus.
3M Company Agrees to Pay $9.1 Million to Resolve Allegations
In a recent settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice, 3M agreed to pay $9.1 million to resolve allegations that the company knowingly sold defective earplugs to the U.S. military. The case settlement was brought in a lawsuit filed under the qui tam, or whistleblower, provisions of the False Claims Act and is captioned United States ex rel. Moldex-Metric v. 3M Company, Case No. 3:16-cv-1533-MBS (D.S.C.).
What is noteworthy about the lawsuit settlement is that the amount recovered only offsets government financial losses, not hearing loss damages suffered by U.S. Veterans. Furthermore, the case only settles allegations and does not state any liability.

”Veterans of our United States armed forces shouldn’t have had to worry about being put at risks of injury from a U.S. based manufacturer while defending our country. I want them to know that they do have the right to seek justice and seek compensation to help ensure their long-term quality of life is not overlooked. That is why my legal team is prepared to pursue individual compensation claims for those suffering hearing loss and other damages due to 3M’s defective earplugs.” —Mike Brandner
