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 troubleshoot 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.

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.
