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.
