An IVC Filter Trial ends in a $1.2 Million Award! A Texas jury has ordered Cook Medical to pay $1.2 million in damages as a result of a Cook Celect Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) lawsuit filed by a Houston firefighter after the blood clot filter migrated and perforated his aorta.
The case is one of about 3,000 product liability lawsuits pending nationwide against Cook Medical, each involving similar problems with retrievable IVC filters, which are designed to catch blood clots and prevent them from traveling to the lungs.
