Have You Received a Hearing Implant Recently?
The cochlear implant, also known as a bionic ear, is an electronic device
that is surgically implanted into a patient's ear who is deaf or hard
of hearing to provide a sense of sound.
The implant has already been recalled twice now. The first time it was recalled for symptoms that were similar to the ones
that people are
reporting now. The second time the product was recalled was because the company changed
the components in the device without approval or even notifying the FDA.
What You Need To Know About Cochlear Hearing Implants
Once the device ceases to function properly, Cochlear will typically have
an on-call audiologist perform an Integrity Test Report to determine if
the device has been deemed a "hard failure." Devices with a
confirmed, hard failure will need to be explanted and revised with a functioning device.
At this time, the company may approach you with a promise of minimal compensation
for a replacement device or for out of pocket expenses in exchange for
your signing a release which could affect your ability to recover in tort.
If you have experienced a confirmed, hard failure of a Cochlear implant,
it is very important not to sign any release with the company and to
contact the experienced product liability lawyers at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation for a free consultation to discuss
your potential claim.

process, first involving the documented, chain of custody of the explanted
evidence to the test facility. Next, protocols regarding the testing of
the device must be agreed to by the attorneys so that testing does not
alter or change the nature and quality of the evidence or otherwise destroy
the evidence. It is important to retain an experienced product liability
lawyer to ensure the evidence is preserved, the device is not lost and
that acceptable test protocols are put in place for device testing and
