What Happens When a Cochlear Implant Fails?

The defective cochlear implant lawyers at the Beverly Hills, California law firm of Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation continue to take on and investigate new cases and legal claims involving failed, previously recalled cochlear implant devices. Many are unable to achieve a hermetic seal, allowing moisture from the inner ear to penetrate the implant and short circuit the diodes that power the unit. When a cochlear implant begins to fail, its user may experience painful symptoms.

If you or a family member experienced an unfortunate failure of a cochlear implant, it is very important to contact us as soon as possible for a completely free consultation to talk about the facts of your potential case and to discuss your eligibility to recover monetary damages. You could be able to recover the costs of the revision surgery as well as any injuries you experienced before the device was removed.

We Can Help You After a Cochlear Implant Failure

From numerous past clients, we know experiencing the failure of a cochlear implant is very challenging. Over our many years of experience, we have sadly seen many clients struggling with implant-related issues including:

  • Painful, shocking sensations
  • Vestibular and balance issues
  • Intermittent implant functionality

We’ve also seen the companies that make these faulty implants attempt to negotiate a settlement before the injured party has retained an experienced cochlear implant lawyer. We advise you to hold off on signing any release or waiver until you have a lawyer to review its terms. These contracts could affect your right to recover in a lawsuit or claim against the company in the future. So, reach out to our team before you make any agreements or attempt to negotiate a settlement. Our product liability lawyers at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation can and should represent you in all manners related to your settlement.

If Your Implant Has Failed, Contact Us

If your failed cochlear implant has already been explanted, testing protocols regarding the cause and failure analysis of the device should be supervised by your attorneys so you can make sure it neither alters nor changes the nature and quality of the explanted device or otherwise destroys the evidence. At this stage, it is imperative to retain our firm of experienced cochlear implant lawyers to ensure the explanted device is properly preserved and maintained, and that the agreed-to protocols are used for device testing and post-test analysis.

The cochlear implant lawyers at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation represent clients both nationally and internationally with regard to failed and defective cochlear implants. No other law firm has the breadth of experience or knowledge that we do regarding these failed cochlear implants and we will take all necessary steps to ensure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.
