The product liability lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION

From the thousands of hours we have spent with our cochlear implant clients,
we understand that experiencing a failure of one of these devices is a
very challenging time - both physically and financially.
What is a Cochlear Implant?
The purpose of an implant is not to restore normal hearing. The device
presents sound in the environment in a useful way and makes speech more
accessible to people who experience deafness or are hard of hearing. People
who experience deafness or are hard of hearing can get a sense of sound
through the small and complex electronic device.
Two parts of the implant are placed under the skin, one behind the ear
and one under the skin.
Cochlear Implants Have 4 Parts:
Microphone - Picks up sound.
Speech Processor - Selects and arranges sounds picked up by the microphone.
Transmitter & Receiver/Stimulator - Receives signals and converts them into electric impulses.
Electrode Array - Collects impulses and sends them to different regions of the auditory nerve.
Why Some Cochlear Implants Are Bad
We also know from our years of experience representing our clients who
have struggled with these defective implants that they often can suffer
from painful shocking sensations, loss of communication and hearing, social
isolation, balance issues and the frustration of periods of intermittent
functionality before the device fails entirely.

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.

Cochlear Implant Settlements
Lastly, in our experience with these cochlear implant manufacturers, they
will sometimes attempt to negotiate a settlement with you before you contact
an experienced cochlear implant lawyer. Sometimes implant recipients contact
us after they sign a release with the manufacturer.
Please note that signing a release or a waiver without having a lawyer
review its terms could negatively affect your ability to recover in a
lawsuit or claim against the company in the future. In sum, it is very
important NOT to attempt to negotiate a settlement on your own with the
company. It is equally important NOT to sign anything that could affect
your future rights to recovery.
It is best to contact the experienced cochlear implant lawyers at SHOOP
| A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION before you have any dealings with the
cochlear manufacturers related to the settlement of your claim.
No other law firm has the breadth of experience or knowledge that we do
regarding these failed cochlear implants and we will take all necessary
steps to ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.
