What’s the Problem?

September 1, 2016 – According to the suit, Plaintiff Joan Wiseman suffered life-threatening injuries in 2015 after receiving a defective Cook Celect IVC Filter, with the fractured strut of the device puncturing the right ventricle of her heart, causing severe internal organ damage.

Wiseman holds Cook Medical Inc., Cook Inc. and Cook Group Inc. responsible because they allegedly failed to adequately warn of the potential health risks associated with use of their vena cava filters.

The lawsuit was filed on August 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division, under case number 8:16-cv-01542. Wiseman is seeking a jury trial and damages in excess of $75,000.
