The product liability lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION
continue to investigate and take on additional claims involving defective
cochlear implants - notably the recalled, Advanced Bionics HiRes90k CI
which was voluntarily recalled due to manufacturing issues involving a
component feed-thru. If you have experienced a failure of any cochlear
implant, please contact our firm today for a free of cost, initial case
consultation. No law firm in the nation handles more defective COCHLEAR
implant claims than we do - let us put our product knowledge to work for
you if you or a family member suffered a failure of one of these implants.
COCHLEAR IMPLANT INTERMITTENCY
Often times, a cochlear implant recipient may experience periods of intermittent
functionality of the device before it ultimately fails. In our experience
representing clients, this frustrating period can last for several months
before the device completely shuts down. During this time, there are several
ways to trouble shoot the device. An on-call audiologist from the manufacturer
should administer an Integrity Test to determine if the device is functioning
properly or if it is exhibiting signs of failure. At the conclusion of
this test, your audiologist may determine that the drive has failed to
achieve a lock with the external monitor and you may consider options
regarding explant. During this time, we recommend that you contact us
to discuss your potential claim and to allow us to review your medical
records, free of cost, to determine if you have a claim.
Several of our clients have told us that during the period of intermittent
functionality of their implant they experienced painful shocking sensations
and also suffered every impairment and vestibular issues. It is very important
to contact us as soon as possible if you or a family member is suffering
from these types of symptoms.
PRODUCT LIABILITY LAWYERS WITH A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE
Our lawyers have been litigating product liability cases throughout the
country for over 35 years. You will not find a team of experienced product
liability lawyers who genuinely care about their clients like we do -
and no other law firm in the nation handles more cochlear implant product
liability claims than we do. Experience matters. We have been handling
Advanced Bionics claims for years and we are very familiar with their
defense strategy, claims handling and litigation practices.
We have resolved all manner of HiRes90k claims, and we understand all too
well the struggles our clients have endured to get their lives back on
track after suffering a failure of their implant.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY HIRES90K DEVICE FAILS?
You may have received a letter from Advanced Bionics notifying you that
the implant you or a loved one received contains a component called a
feed-thru device which was manufactured by a "Vendor B" (an
unapproved, device-component supplier). The components manufactured by
this supplier have failed at an alarming rate due to excess moisture,
amongst other issues in our experience with this component, some feed-thrus
have separated entirely from the unit, causing catastrophic failure.
Importantly - if you are a Vendor B recipient, do NOT sign a release with
Advanced Bionics in exchange for nominal reimbursement. This could potentially
affect your legal rights to recover additional sums in a lawsuit or settlement
with the company.
If you or a loved one suffered a failure of a HiRes90k implant, it is very
important to contact our legal team immediately so that we may provide
a FREE of cost case evaluation and initial discussion of your potential case.
