The product liability lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION handle defective cochlear implant cases nationally.

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.

Surgical Process

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.

For parents, watching their child suffer the negative effects from a defective cochlear implant and then watching their child endure an unnecessary surgery to replace the defective implant can be devastating. We know all too well what are clients experience and we are here every step of the way to offer guidance, preserve evidence, prosecute the claim and secure the compensation they deserve.

Cochlear implants have been the subject of several FDA Voluntary Recalls and Field Corrective Actions.

  • Advanced Bionics HiRes 90K
  • Cochlear Americas CI512
  • Advanced Bionics HiRes Ultra and Ultra 3D
  • Med El Concerto and Sonata.

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.
