Have You Received a Hearing Implant Recently?
The cochlear implant, also known as a bionic ear, is an electronic device
that is surgically implanted into a patient's ear who is deaf or hard
of hearing to provide a sense of sound.
The implant has already been recalled twice before. The first time it was recalled for symptoms that were similar to the ones
that people are reporting now. The second time the product was recalled
was because the company changed the components in the device without approval
or even notifying the FDA.

PROBLEMS WITH THE N5 COCHLEAR IMPLANT
In September 2011, Cochlear Ltd. initiated a product recall of the world's
thinnest hearing implants after several patients experienced problems.
The company stated that the cause of the implant failures was a manufacturing
defect, or more specifically, variations in the brazing process that caused
a number of implants to develop "microcracks" in their braze joints.
These cracks in the device allow moisture to enter into it because it fails
to achieve a hermetic seal. This condition causes diodes that power the
device to short-circuit, and the device correspondingly shuts down.
DON'T SIGN ANYTHING UNTIL YOU TALK TO US
Remember, if you or your child has suffered a confirmed failure of a cochlear
implant, it is important that you DO NOT attempt to negotiate a settlement
on your own with Cochlear Ltd. It is also important that you DO NOT sign
a release or enter into any written settlement agreement with the company,
especially since this could diminish your legal rights.
So pick up the phone and
talk to one of our cochlear implant lawyers today.
