3M Dual-Ended Combat Earplugs manufactured by the 3M Company between the years 2003 and 2015 have been found to be defective. These earplugs have caused serious hearing and ear damage to the men and women who served in the military as well as military contractors.
3M was recently sued and found guilty under the False Claims Act. The company misled government officials concerning these earplugs.
If you or a loved one have been injured due to defective 3M Earplugs while serving in the military or as a contractor for the U.S. government, you may be ready to talk to Tribeca Lawsuit Loans about how we can help.

Why Would You Need a Lawsuit Loan for a 3M Case?
Even though 3M was found guilty for misleading government officials concerning the safety of their Dual-Ended Combat Earplugs, this was not a complete win. Under the terms of the False Claims Act guilty verdict, 3M agreed to pay $9.1 million to resolve allegations that are supplied defective earplugs to service members and contractors.
However, none of the settlement money was allocated for the military service members or the contractors who sustained significant ear damage or hearing loss. Any person injured as a result of defective 3M Earplugs has to file a lawsuit on their own against the company.
Unfortunately, doing so can require costly litigation that most victims in these situations cannot afford by themselves. That is why it may be necessary to obtain a 3M Earplugs lawsuit loan in order to proceed with these cases and ensure the plaintiffs secure the compensation they deserve.
How Lawsuit Loans Work for Mass Tort Cases
Lawsuit loans are often necessary for those standing up to companies in defective product cases. These loans are better described as “pre-settlement legal funding” that victims can receive in advance of an expected future settlement or jury verdict award.
We have a proud history of helping plaintiffs cover a myriad of expenses that they incur as a result of the harm that other companies have done. Our pre-settlement funding can help cover expenses such as:
- All medical bills resulting from the hearing loss or ear damage
- Compensation for any necessary hearing devices
- Coverage of daily out-of-pocket expenses like food and gasoline
- Rent and mortgage payments
- Payment for utility bills
- Replacement for lost wages or lost earning capacity
Our Application Process Doesn’t Require Your Financial History
Since repayment comes directly from your recovery package and is sent to us by your lawyer, you don’t have to lift a finger. You also are NOT subject to:
- Invasive looks into your personal financial situation
- Proof of income requirements
- Credit score requirements (there is actually no credit check at all!)
Instead, we rely on information about your personal injury claim like:
- Details about the damages you have suffered
- Your expected compensation
- The contact details of your attorney or the law firm representing you
- The expected duration of your lawsuit
How Will You Pay the Loan Back?
We understand that these cases can take some time to resolve. However, after you successfully recover compensation through a settlement with 3M or as a result of a jury verdict, your attorney will receive payment from the company. At that time, your lawyer will write a check to us to pay back the agreed-upon amount, pay their attorney’s fees, and then send you the rest of the money.
Perhaps the most important thing that we want to point out is that any lawsuit loan you take from us pertaining to your 3M case is considered non-recourse. You will not be responsible for paying us back if, for some reason, you receive no settlement or favorable jury verdict for your case.
