A cochlear implant is designed to provide the deaf or hard of hearing with a sense of sound. While these devices have helped many patients regain a sense they had lost, they have also negatively impacted tens of thousands of patients through equipment defects and malfunctions.
Below, our Los Angeles product liability attorneys discuss the warning signs of cochlear implant failure so you can know whether you have been affected by recent recalls.
Did My Cochlear Implant Stop Working?
The cochlear implant has been noted for having potential defects that can cause pain and loud noises in a patient’s ear.
The device has faced recall issues twice before—once for causing symptoms similar to those just mentioned, and again for the issues that people are reporting now.
The symptoms caused by a defective cochlear device may include the following:
Buzzing or ringing in the ears
Non-auditory symptoms including pain or a burning sensation
Decrease in hearing or device performance
