Jury Awards Plaintiff $1.2 M in Cook IVC Filter Lawsuit

  • IVC Filter Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

Following a  three-week-long trial, a Houston firefighter, Jeff Pavlock, was awarded more than $1.2 million by a Texas jury for the lawsuit filed against Cook Medical LLC involving an IVC filter.

The plaintiff was implanted with Cook Celect IVC filter in March 2015 to avert blood clots from reaching his heart, but the filter tilted and pierced into his tissues causing an internal injury, requiring a revision surgery. The allegations include failure to warn the performing surgeon about the possible adverse effects of the defectively designed filter.

Cynthia Kretz, vice president and general counsel for Cook Medical and Cook Group, expressed her disappointment saying, “we are disappointed in this outcome and do not believe this verdict is supported by the facts or the law. This one case does not change our position on continually defending this important, life-saving technology.” Cook officials stated that they plan to appeal the court's decision on the allegations laid on them over its IVC filter.
