What is the 3M dual-ended Combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2 (CAEv2)?
The 3M dual-ended combat arms earplugs were meant to be worn by military service members to protect them from damaging their hearing. These type of ear plugs were supplied to military service members between 2003 and 2015.
The earplugs were designed to be worn in two ways. The wearer could insert the plugs one way if they needed to hear speech and another way if they needed greater noise protection. The plugs looked like two inverted cones connected at each bottom by a stem.
What type of side effects are members of the military experiencing as a result of wearing 3M dual-ended Combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2 (CAEv2)?
Lawsuits are being filed against 3M Company, Inc. and allege that the 3M dual-ended Combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2 (CAEv2) were defective because the earplugs did not protect against hearing loss. If you suffer from hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), permanent hearing damage or deafness, you may qualify for a 3M Combat Earplugs lawsuit.
In July 2018, 3M agreed to pay $9.1 million to settle allegations that it knowingly supplied the United States military with defective earplugs. The lawsuit brought on behalf of the U.S. government alleged that the company covered up the fact that the dual-ended earplugs could slightly loosen, allowing hearing damage to occur and that thousands of service members were supplied the defective 3M Combat Arms Earplugs from 2003 to 2015.
