Schachter, Hendy & Johnson PSC Lawyer Says Cochlear Implant Victims Should Know Their Legal Rights
Date:5/18/2013

Fort Wright, KY (PRWEB) May 18, 2013

During Better Hearing and Speech Month, parents of children with hearing loss should consider the legal protections they have, including the right to bring a product liability claim, when problems arise with their child’s treatment or hearing aid device, attorney Ronald E. Johnson Jr. said today.

Since 1927, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association has used the month of May to raise awareness about communication disorders and to promote treatment, such as cochlear implants, which can improve the quality of life for those with speaking and hearing disorders.

Cochlear implants are implanted in the skull of one who is deaf or hard of hearing. Wires attach the implant to a magnet. When engaged, the magnet can give the person the sense of sound.

“We certainly encourage parents of children with hearing disorders to seek out helpful and innovative treatments and products such as cochlear implants, but we also urge caution during this awareness month,” said Johnson, a partner with the Kentucky personal injury firm of Schachter, Hendy & Johnson PSC.

“Parents should certainly do thorough research into any medical devices before going through with a treatment for their child, such as looking into whether there have been any warnings about the device,” Johnson continued.

“If they believe their child has suffered harm that may have been caused by a device due to a defect they were not warned about, they should certainly seek information about their legal rights, including the right to seek compensation for their medical expenses and other losses.”

Johnson represents the family of a girl who suffered electrical shocks, convulsions
