3M recently settled a False Claims Act lawsuit with the United States Justice Department for $9 million which alleged that 3M and its predecessor knowingly sold defective combat ready dual ended earplugs to our military between the years of 2003 and 2015. The settlement does not compensate the veterans who have hearing loss or tinnitus caused by the defect. We are handling these claims.
It is estimated that approximately 900,000 veterans have permanent hearing loss and 1.2 million suffer from tinnitus. Laird, Baker & Blackstock appreciates our military fighting for our country and are ready to fight for your rights to compensation for any damages you have suffered.
