A U.S. District Court has awarded $7.25 million to a Louisville girl who was severely shocked by a cochlear device implanted in her head. The lawsuit claimed that the device, manufactured by Advance Bionics, was defective and that company executives were aware of the defects and hid that fact from consumers. The suit stated that about 25 percent of the devices that have been implanted have failed. The girl received a shock so violent from the device that she was “thrown to the ground, vomiting and convulsing.”
