Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. would like to inform the public that our law firm is expanding its litigation against the California-based Advanced Bionics Corporation, related to defective cochlear implants implanted in young children and adults. Some of the firm’s clients have suffered multiple implant surgeries due to a defective implant being surgically removed and replaced with a second defective implant that later failed.
"What is particularly disturbing," said Teresa Curtin, one of the lawyers with Weitz & Luxenberg who is herself Deaf and who has extensive experience with cochlear implants, "is that Advanced Bionics sold a device to be implanted in the delicate cochlea of young children and adults, yet violated the trust of these individuals by failing to ensure that their product was manufactured correctly. We are still receiving inquiries from individuals and families concerned about whether their or their child’s implants are currently failing and should be replaced."
Weitz & Luxenberg's initial lawsuits focused on defective Advanced Bionics HiRes90k cochlear implants. Those devices were the subject of a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lawsuit that was settled in July 2008 with a $1,100,000 fine against Advanced Bionics and a $75,000 fine against Advanced Bionics’ CEO Jeffery Greiner, individually. Weitz & Luxenberg is now also accepting cases involving Advanced Bionics' earlier Clarion implant model based on similar defects and failures.
The firm’s clients range in age from 5 to 81 and vary widely in terms of whether they were born deaf, or lost their hearing gradually or suddenly. Yet virtually all enjoyed and appreciated being able to hear with a cochlear implant prior to their implant failures.
Potential symptoms of defective cochlear implants include:
