Can I still file a claim with 3M if I receive disability compensation from the VA?

Yes. Veterans are eligible for compensation both from 3M and the VA. Thereby, if you seek compensation from the liable company, you can still receive disability compensation from the VA.

Veterans injured by the defective 3M earplugs can receive compensation from multiple sources

If you already receive disability compensation from the VA for hearing impairment, you can still file a claim with 3M, the company responsible for the manufacturing of Combat Arms earplugs.

Receiving disability compensation from the VA does not disqualify you from filing a claim with 3M. This way, you can recover compensation from both sources for your hearing impairment.

Because the military was receiving 15,000 earplugs packages every year between 2003 and 2015, millions of members of the military may have been injured by their defective product. Furthermore, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, veterans who served during Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom are 4 times more likely to develop a hearing problem than the general population as a result of the use of the defective earplugs, as they were constantly exposed to loud noises without complete protection.

With the assistance of a lawyer who specializes in this area of practice, you will recover the maximum compensation available from 3M, as they have a resourceful legal team that will gather all the necessary evidence to prepare your claim for submission.
