PHILADELPHIA, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/-- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that IVC Filter lawsuits have continued to steadily increase; and Cook Medical and plaintiffs have recently agreed to bellwether cases, which are expected to begin in September of 2016.
According to The Legal Examiner, "All federal product liability and personal injury lawsuits over complications with Cook Celect and Cook Gunther Tulip IVC filters have been centralized before U.S. District Judge Richard Young in the Southern District of Indiana, as part of an MDL, or multidistrict litigation." Currently, there are approximately 400 lawsuits against Cook Medical that have been filed by patients with serious injuries. The bellwether process was announced, and "a group of cases will be prepared for early trial dates, expected to begin in September, 2016."
Additionally, a bellwether program has also been set up in the IVC Filter MDL against C.R. Bard, who is facing approximately 500 lawsuits over their Bard Recovery filter and Bard G2 filter. However, it has been reported that the bellwether selections in that MDL "are not likely until 2017." The C.R. Bard MDL is centralized before U.S. District Judge David Campbell in the District of Arizona.
Chris Janish, CEO, commented on the rise in IVC Filter lawsuits, "As bellwether trials have now been reported to begin in September of this year, we want to remind plaintiffs we have been involved in this litigation for some time and are prepared to fund IVC Filter cases for those who need lawsuit cash advances immediately."
Nearly 900 lawsuits have now been filed against manufacturers of the inferior vena cava (IVC) filters. The lawsuits have similar allegations, claiming that the manufacturers failed to let patients know that the IVC filters break, tilt, and migrate from the initial insertion position and then puncture the lungs, heart, or inferior vena cava. Legal experts expect the number of lawsuits to continue to rise. With this in mind, Legal-Bay is actively offering case funding for IVC filter cases and is ready to assist you and your family today.
