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.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of the faulty hearing aid, do not hesitate to call our office immediately. We have built our practice on high moral and ethical standards, and we believe that every person should get a fair opportunity for justice.

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.


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.
