$1.2 Million Verdict Reached In Cook Celect IVC Filter Trial
On Friday, a Texas jury awarded plaintiff Jeffrey Pavlock, a 35-year-old Houston-area firefighter, $1.2 million following a three-week trial regarding injuries he sustained after implantation of a Cook Celect IVC filter. According to Pavlock, the device fractured, migrated and metal fragments perforated his aorta as well as his duodenum. The case was the first against Cook held in a state court about the IVC, which has been the target of 4,000 lawsuits that claim serious issues for patients.
