What Are The Steps Involved in a 3M Combat Arms Earplug Lawsuit?

If you are a service member or a veteran who has suffered hearing loss or developed other hearing related problems due to the continued use of 3M earplugs, you might be wondering how you can seek damages from the company. In this post, we will review the process of filing a 3M Combat Arms Earplug lawsuit and explain how you can recover the compensation you deserve.

Steps Involved in Combat Arms Earplugs Lawsuit Process

Filing the Claim

This is the first step involved in a 3M Combat Arms Earplug Lawsuit. In this step, you (the plaintiff) file a product liability claim against 3M (the defendant).

Response to Your Claim

Once the claim is filed, the defendant will respond to it.


This is an important step, during which your attorney and the at-fault party’s attorney will exchange case-related information and evidence between themselves. Your attorney will get the information they need by asking the other side to respond (in writing) to a set of questions. The at-fault party’s attorney will do the same.


In this step, your attorney will try to settle the 3M Combat Arms Earplug Lawsuit out of court by negotiating with the at-fault party’s attorney. Your attorney will argue – based on the evidence they have gathered – that you deserve the compensation you are asking for.

The other side’s attorney will make their own arguments to reduce the value of your claim to the extent possible. If both attorneys manage to reach an agreement, your case will not go to trial.

Pre-Trial Motions

In this step of a 3M Combat Arms Earplug lawsuit, each side will try to persuade the judge to allow or dismiss certain evidence presented by the other side.


This is the last step, during which both attorneys will make their arguments in front of a judge or jury and present the evidence they have. Based on the evidence your attorney presents and the arguments they make, the judge or jury will decide whether you deserve to be compensated for your hearing problems and if so, how much should be paid in compensation.

Importance of Choosing the Right Attorney to Represent You

When it comes to personal injury claims, the compensation awarded by a judge or jury tends to be significantly higher than what the plaintiff can obtain through negotiated settlement.

This is why the defendants – especially large companies and multinational corporations – usually try to persuade or force the plaintiffs to accept their settlement offer, as they know that they stand to lose much more if the case goes to trial.

For these reasons, it’s fundamental for you to choose an attorney who can stand up to multinational conglomerates without getting intimidated by their bullying tactics and help you get the compensation you deserve.
