The product liability lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION
continue to investigate and take on additional claims and cases involving
Advanced Bionics’ Cochlear Implants. We handle primarily claims
involving the recalled, Advanced Bionics HiRes90k device, which was recalled
on several occasions due to manufacturing issues related to implant hermeticity.
No other law firm in the nation handles more such defective, cochlear
implant claims than we do. Let us put our product knowledge to work for
you if you have suffered an unfortunate failure of your cochlear implant
and allow us to provide you with a FREE of cost case evaluation and initial
discussion of your potential claim.
Typically, in our experience with these claims over the years, the defective
CI experiences prolonged periods of intermittency before it ultimately
fails. The devices fail because, amongst other issues, they experience
a loss of hermeticity, which allows the saline from the inner ear to penetrate
the CI and short out the diodes which power the unit. As the device shuts
down and ceases to function, some implant recipients have described and
complained of painful shocking sensations.
No matter the time-frame, it is of critical importance to contact the experienced
product liability lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION for
a free consultation if you or a loved one suffered a failure of any CI.
We will promptly evaluate the case for you and determine next steps.
COCHLEAR IMPLANT FAILURE - THE DO’S AND DONT’S
If you are an Advanced Bionics HiRes90k Vendor B recipient, it is very
important that you not sign a release with the company in exchange for
nominal reimbursement as this could potentially affect your legal rights
to recover additional sums in a civil action or later settlement with
the company. Our law firm has represented victims of defective cochlear
implants for many years. We will secure for you and your family the compensation
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.
You may have also received a letter from the company that reads similar
to this form letter typically sent out to failed implant recipients:
“For some, a revision surgery can lead to costs that they would not
otherwise incur. While we know we cannot undo the struggles you have been
through, we are determined to help you by reimbursing you for reasonable
and documented medical and personal expenses associated with your cochlear
implant revision surgery.” Then the company will seek to provide
insufficient compensation for the setbacks, impediments, isolation and
surgical intervention a failed device necessarily creates.
If you or a loved one suffered a failure of a HiRes90k - or any cochlear
implant for that matter - 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 claim.
