In February, a man who had sued CR Bard over injuries from his IVC filter reached a confidential settlement. His IVC lawsuit read in part “It subsequently failed and migrated to his heart, perforating his heart and causing severe and life-threatening complications requiring emergency open-heart surgery on April 30, 2010, and resulting in various economic and non-economic damages,”. There have been many lawsuits over these IVC filter but this California IVC settlement is believed to be the first. This IVC settlement was reached just 6 days before the lawsuit was scheduled to go to trial. There is currently no IVC MDL involving CR Bard. However, there is IVC MDL against Bard's competitor Cook Select. Around 60 Lawsuits have been filed against Cook Select for IVC related injuries. In this settlement the plaintiff accused Bard of causing serious heart injuries due to his IVC procedure. Click here to learn about an IVC lawsuit that was recently filed in Michigan.
