C.R. Bard to Face the Second IVC Filter Bellwether Trial in May

  • IVC Filter Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

The second Bard IVC filter lawsuit is scheduled to begin on May 15, 2018, filed by a woman from Georgia, who was implanted with C.R. Bard’s Eclipse blood clot filter in 2010 to treat recurrent deep vein thrombosis. A pretrial conference is scheduled for May 4 and the expected trial run is 3 weeks. As per the case management order, the trial will be conducted in two phases; the first phase will determine liability, compensatory damages, and whether punitive damages should be awarded and, if so, the second phase will be convened to determine the punitive damages amount to be awarded.

Thousands of IVC filter lawsuits are pending in consolidated action against C.R. Bard for its Recovery, G2, G2 Express, G2X, Eclipse, Meridian, and Denali IVC Filters, wherein the plaintiffs claim that due to the manufacturing and design defects, Bard filters are more dangerous than other IVC filters and that Bard failed to warn about the higher risks. The cases were centralized in 2015 to coordinate the pre-trial proceedings under MDL 2641 (in re Bard IVC Filters Products Liability Litigation) before U.S. District Judge David Campbell.

A Phoenix jury recently awarded $ 4 million to a woman for injuries caused by IVC filter manufactured by C.R. Bard Inc.
