Cook IVC Celect and Gunther Tulip Injury lawsuits

IVC Filter lawsuits Cook Medical, the makers of Gunther Tulip and other IVC filters, continue to face lawsuits from consumers who have accused the manufacturer of “selling dangerous medical devices and failing to warn about the risks” consumers face.

Parker Thompson, a man from Texas who was implanted with the IVC filter in 2005, is the latest person to file a lawsuit against Cook Medical over their Gunther Tulip device. Thompson joins approximately 400 other people who are suing the Gunther Tulip IVC filter manufacturer in the U.S. District for the Southern District of Indiana.

The lawsuits allege that some of Cook’s blood-clot filters have broken apart, moved or poked through the blood vessel where they are implanted.

The number of lawsuits filed against the manufacturers of IVC filters are on the rise in the United States, with more than 400 pending cases. Currently, there are two Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in the U.S. concerning IVC Filters, with 343 lawsuits against Cook Medical that have been consolidated in the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Indiana, and 382 lawsuits consolidated against C.R. Bard in the U.S. District Court in the District of Arizona.

IVC Filter lawsuitsFive products produced by C.R. Bard and Cook Medical are at the center of these lawsuits. These products include:

  • Bard Recovery filter

Dallas Defective Medical Device attorneyLarry and Brenda Johnson recently filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, claiming that the filter used to prevent blood clots traveling from the legs to the lungs damaged his heart.

Johnson was implanted with the retrievable IVC filter to prevent blood clots from traveling to his lungs and causing a pulmonary embolism.

According to the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), all pending federally filed Cook inferior vena cava (IVC) filter lawsuits will be consolidated and centralized before U.S. District Judge Richard L. Young in the Southern District of Indiana, for coordinated pretrial proceedings.
