The average waiting time between submitting a claim and receiving compensation is 5 months
Whether you submit your claim with 3M, the company that manufactured the defective Combat Arms earplugs between 2003 and 2015, or with the VA, you will have to wait several months before you receive your financial compensation. The waiting time is shorter for the claims filed with the VA, whereas the waiting time is longer if you also file a claim with 3M. It primarily depends on the severity of your diagnosis, as well as on how many claims the company or the VA has to process at the time your attorney submits yours. Because the process of filing a claim for defective earplugs is very complex, we strongly encourage you to seek the help of a lawyer who specializes in this area of practice, as they will be able to speed up the process considerably and will also take care of the majority of the paperwork along with their legal team on your behalf. This way, your involvement in the process will be minimal, which will allow you to focus on more important matters in the meantime, such as your health.
