Serving in the United States military is incredibly honorable and critically important. Yet, the work is also extremely risky. The United States government and the companies with which it contracts have a duty to provide soldiers and other military personnel with properly designed and manufactured protective gear to help keep them safe.
Dual-Ended Combat Arms ™ Earplugs
Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs, made by 3M™, were standard issue protective gear provided to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002 – 2016. Soldiers depended on these earplugs to protect them from loud noises and the serious and potentially non-reversible injuries of tinnitus and hearing loss that could result from exposure to loud noises. Unfortunately, the U.S. government alleges that the Dual-Ended Combat Arms earplugs had a serious design defect that prevented soldiers from receiving adequate ear protection.
