What are My Rights If a Defective Cochlear Implant Causes Me Harm?

Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation

When you have to have a medical product that is supposed to help you in one way or another, it’s easy to understand that you’d expect it to be safe for its intended use. You wouldn’t expect something that’s supposed to be beneficial to you to cause harm.

While there are several factors to consider, a defective Cochlear implant can cause significant harm and it’s up to the injured party to recognize their rights moving forward. Here is how you can take action if you’ve been harmed.

Getting the Situation Remedied

For situations involving a Cochlear implant, remedying the situation can make it so you’re getting the treatment you need, and avoiding any further harm. With Cochlear implants, additional surgical procedures are often a major cause of the pain and suffering you endure.

However, when your Cochlear implant fails, surgery to replace the device can be the only option you have to move forward.

Legal Options Available

While your health should always come first and foremost, there are also situations where the injured party can take legal option action. This is typically done against the manufacturer, but others may be held accountable if they knew of the dangers, but did nothing to remove the Cochlear implants from market.

Compensation for the injured party can range from the extensive medical bills you owe to the pain and suffering associated with this type of problem.
