When pursuing a defective ear plug claim against 3M for its Combat Arms Earplug (Version 2), you have at least two potential states you could file your lawsuit. The first state is the state where you used the defective Combat Arms Earplug (Version 2) and/or sustained your injuries. The second state is where 3M is headquartered. Each state has different laws on when a lawsuit against 3M for its Combat Arms Earplug (Version 2) has to be filed. In Ohio, the statute of limitations (time to file your lawsuit) for product liability and negligence claims is two years from the date that you knew or should have known that the Combat Arms Earplugs caused your hearing loss or tinnitus. In Minnesota, however, where 3M is headquartered, the statute of limitations is 6 years for negligence claims and 4 years for product claims alleging strict liability.
