IVC Filter Attorney
In August 2016, Judge U.S. District Judge Richard L. Young in the Southern District of Indiana picked the first bellwether cases out of hundreds of Cook IVC filter lawsuits in multidistrict litigation. The judge scheduled the first trials for 2017. Plaintiffs in these trials used Cook's Celect and Günther Tulip filters.
The first plaintiff to go to trial will be Elizabeth Jane Hill of Florida. Doctors discovered Hill's filter imbedded in the intestine and punctured the vein causing "persistent severe gastrointestinal symptoms, fatigue, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain."
Judges pick bellwether cases from a list of recommendations from defendant and plaintiff lawyers. These cases are supposed to represent the majority of IVC filter cases. They may also represent cases that are outside the typical case. The outcome of these cases helps attorneys gauge a jury's reaction to the facts presented in trial. Jury verdicts in bellwethers may also influence the likelihood of a global settlement agreement later on. Originally post at, https://www.drugwatch.com/ivc-filters/lawsuits/
