My Cochlear Implant is Failing
Many of the implant recipients that we represent describe for us all of their negative experiences just prior to complete device failure and device shut-down. Our clients share with us descriptions of prolonged periods of intermittent device functionality, static and general discomfort as the device diodes slowly die out. Disturbingly, we also learn of other symptoms such as incredibly loud noises in their ear and shocking sensations from the implant.
If your cochlear implant is causing these problems, please schedule an appointment with an on-call audiologist as soon as possible to troubleshoot the device. At that time, an integrity test on the device may be performed. We have learned from our years of experience and the hundreds of clients we have represented that the bulk of these cochlear implants fail because they fail to achieve a hermetic seal due to problems in the manufacturing process. The best way to confirm conclusively that the device is failing is by having this diagnostic testing performed at an audiology clinic.
Please also be reminded to ask your audiologist to provide you with a copy of the integrity test report and any medical records generated at the time of your visit to the clinic for our review. It is important to involve us as soon as you suspect your cochlear implant may be failing.
Explanted Cochlear Devices
If your defective cochlear implant has already been removed, the manufacturer will likely have performed a series of tests on the explanted device to determine the reason it failed. If you or a family member have had a cochlear implant surgically removed, it is important to contact us as soon as possible so that we may evaluate the claim and preserve your legal rights as you have a limited time to file after the device is removed due to applicable statutes of limitation. Again, we provide a free of charge, initial consultation to discuss your potential claim, so there is no down side to contacting us.
An important note to make during this post-explant time period; the manufacturer may attempt to have you sign a release or a waiver of your right to pursue a claim for product defect. They may promise to reimburse you for travel or related expenses during this time in exchange for a waiver. It is very important not to sign anything unless reviewed by an experienced product liability lawyer who can adequately advise you of the potential limitations of your ability to pursue a claim if you sign such a waiver or release.
Please also remember that it is also tremendously important to preserve any and all medical records, audiology notes, mapping records and other correspondence you receive from the manufacturer or the audiology clinic so that we may review these materials as well.
In sum, if you or a loved one experienced a failure of any cochlear implant - it is very important to contact our legal team immediately so that we may provide a free of cost evaluation and initial discussion of your potential claim.
