WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY COCHLEAR IMPLANT FAILS?

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY COCHLEAR IMPLANT FAILS?

Have you suffered a failure of an Advanced Bionics cochlear implant?

Advanced Bionics manufactured HiRes90k cochlear implants that were surgically implanted in recipients between 2003 and 2006. Notably around this time period, Advanced Bionics manufactured and sold defective HiRes90k cochlear implants with feedthrus supplied by a non-FDA approved vendor. These feedthrus allowed excessive moisture to enter the implant, resulting in short circuits and device failure. Advanced Bionics utilizes federal preemption law, expensive litigation and other defenses such that most patients with failed, HiRes90k implants do not receive adequate compensation. The HiRes90k lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION are here to help you obtain fair compensation if you or a family member suffered a failure of this device. No law firm in the nation handles more cochlear implant claims than the lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION.

In fact, Advanced Bionics hopes you contact the company before you contact us. Advanced Bionics will typically send a form letter to the recipient of the failed implant stating that the company is “sorry for the difficulties” associated with device failure and wants the recipient “to feel well taken care of during this challenging time.” Advanced Bionics then typically offers to pay only for “out of pocket costs.” Many people fall victim to this tactic only to be taken advantage of for a second time. The HiRes90k attorneys at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION will not let this happen to you. Many people incorrectly think that because their child’s or their own cochlear implant failed many years ago and has already been explanted that it is too late to pursue a claim. There could be additional time remaining to pursue a claim, especially in the case of a child.

Our firm has the resources, skill and knowledge to defeat the company’s federal preemption defenses and obtain the compensation you deserve for your failed HiRes90k. It is important to call us now so we can help before it’s too late. Don’t let Advanced Bionics get a pass for a defective HiRes90k device that was surgically implanted in you or your child. The HiRes90k lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION have a proven method of successfully handling these cases which always present complex legal and engineering roadblocks.

The lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION understand what you or your child have gone through with the frustration, fear, isolation and having to endure a second procedure under general anesthesia to remove and replace a failed HiRes90k.
