If your hearing has been damaged by defective 3M earplugs, you Need to be Smart about who to trust with your case.

Were you or a loved one injured by Defective 3M Earplugs?  Are you Angry?

If so, You've come to the right place

        Ashley and Stephen Foster are personally angry about 3M giving our veterans defective earplugs.  They have personally sued big corporations and gotten their clients money before but they have never been more upset than they are at a big corporation than they are at 3M.

        3M made money putting servicemembers at risk.  While they were serving, many in active combat, they were provided defective earplugs by 3M.  Many of these service members will never be able to hear because 3M simply did not care about their hearing.

        3M knew and covered up their defective earplugs.  Some current and former servicemembers will pay the price for the rest of their lives.

        We will never know how many lives 3M’s actions cost.  Being in a war zone is dangerous.  Being in a war zone without being able to hear is more dangerous.  Placing servicemembers in a war zone with defective gear because of greed is unforgivable.

Civil law smarts and a criminal trial lawyer's courtroom skills have made Stephen into a rare asset of a lawyer. He's a great guy, personally, as well. I endorse this lawyer.

Stephen is one of the most intelligent and hard working attorneys in the community. For years, I have watched him work tirelessly on many cases. He is deserving of every accolade.
The Honorable Brian Powers
United States
Stephen Foster won the case and obtained a result that I didn’t even know was possible to acquire. He had to repeat the outcome to me multiple times as I was in disbelief! It was way too good to be true. For a tiny split second, we considered that he may be magical

       The 3M Company produced “Combat Arms Ear Plugs” for the U.S. military.  These earplugs were used by countless servicemembers, including many that were in combat starting in 2003 and ending in 2015.

       Between 2003 and 2015, these dual-ended 3M Combat Arms Ear Plugs, specifically version #2 were standard issued equipment for soldiers. These defective earplugs were given to military members both overseas in active combat as well as in training in the United States.  

       3M claimed that their defective earplugs could provide two different types of ear protection.  One type of ear protection was intended to block the maximum amount of noise and the other was intended to allow soldiers to communicate while protecting their eardrums from loud concussive explosive type sounds.

       3M did not allow a 3rd party to do the testing for their earplugs.  Instead, they did it themselves and when they discovered that the earplugs did not function properly, they stopped the testing and changed the testing so it had nothing to do with the way that the earplugs would actually be used. Eventually, 3M was able to work the tests so their earplugs passed.  3M sold their defective earplugs to the military.

         3M’s actions have given soldiers a lifetime of tinnitus (ringing or buzzing of the ears) and partial to full hearing loss. Foster & Foster wants 3M to pay for what they have done.  Even if a soldier chooses another law firm, we hope they will not let their deadlines pass.
