Bard Faces Second Bellwether in IVC Filter Litigation

How an inferior vena cava filter works to stop blood clots from causing an injury in patients.

Ivc filter lawsuits are being filed nationwide.

As high as 80% of patients are discovering an injury caused by the IVC filter after a CT Scan.

Schmidt National Law Group continues to file IVC filter lawsuits

Problems are being reported to the FDA, and the FDA has issued warnings and taken products off the market, but that doesn’t really help the person who has the implants.”

— Martin Schmidt, Esq

SAN DIEGO, CA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Just two months after a jury handed down a multi-million-dollar verdict against the company, medical device manufacturer C.R. Bard is facing its second bellwether trial in the multidistrict litigation involving its inferior vena cava filters.

Bard faces roughly 3,600 lawsuits over its IVC filters, which plaintiffs say caused them serious injury and, in some cases, death. The lawsuits were consolidated into an MDL in the District of Arizona in 2015. So far, one case has gone to trial, which returned a $3.6 million verdict in favor of the plaintiff in late March. The second case is set for trial beginning May 15.

The plaintiffs in these lawsuits claim Bard’s IVC filters caused them serious injury. They allege the cage-like devices used to trap blood clots broke and fractured, migrated from their original locations, moved into the heart or lungs, or even punctured the vena cava, the body’s largest vein.

Schmidt National Law Group works with clients all over the United States—about 80 percent of the clients who thought their IVC filter was still in place, found they could have life-threatening injuries after visiting the doctor for a CT scan.

IVC filters have been implanted in hundreds of thousands of people in the United States over the last several decades. Bard is one of three major manufacturers; the other two, Cordis Corps. and Cook Medical are also facing thousands of lawsuits in state and federal courts across the country.

Medical devices like the IVC filter are often approved by the Food and Drug Administration without the need for rigorous clinical trials, allowing potentially dangerous products through the regulatory cracks and into the hands and bodies of unsuspecting patients.

There have been a number of IVC filter recalls over the years, which take potentially deadly devices off the market, but what about the patients who already have a faulty filter in their body? Attorney Martin Schmidt, of Schmidt National Law Group, says filing an IVC filter lawsuit is the only way to help patients seek justice and hold medical device manufacturers like C.R. Bard, Cordis, and Cook accountable.

“[IVC filter] problems are being reported to the FDA, and the FDA has issued warnings and taken products off the market, but that doesn’t really help the person who has the implants,” says Schmidt. “The FDA doesn’t provide any remedy whatsoever for the person that was harmed by a device that failed, and the only person who can really help them is a plaintiff attorney who is experienced in dealing with potentially adverse medical devices and drugs.”

Schmidt National Law Group is experienced in dealing with bad medical devices and is filing cases against the manufacturers of faulty IVC filters. Call Schmidt National Law Group toll free at 800-631-5656 or visit NationalInjuryAdvocates.com.

Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Insider to Call About Rewards If A EB-5 Visa Regional Center in Texas Is Raising Chinese or Asian Money for a Bad Real Estate Deal or Ponzi Scheme

If you possess information about a Texas based real estate developer cheating Chinese or international investors wishing to participate in the US EB-5 Visa Program please call us at 866-714-6466”

— Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are urging an employee of a Texas based real estate developer or EB-5 Visa Regional Center to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they can prove the EB-5 Visa Regional Center in bed with a real estate developer and is raising money from Chinese, European or Middle Eastern investors for a development that has no chance of ever being economically viable, or that is a ponzi scheme. At the same time, we would like to talk with a regional center insider who can prove a Texas based EB-5 Visa regional center is paying bribes to attorneys, or anyone else who is not properly licensed to receive a commission.” http://Texas.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Recently the US Securities and Exchange Commission announced in a press release, “A whistleblower award of more than $1.7 million to a company insider who provided the agency with critical information to help stop a fraud that would have otherwise been difficult to detect. Millions of dollars were returned to harmed investors.”

When it comes to the EB-5 Visa Investment program for Chinese or International Investors Thinking Texas is the Land of Opportunity the Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center Whistleblower Center Believes the Following:

* A EB-5 Visa regional center’s investment opportunity could easily require over five hundred thousand dollars plus broker and legal fees for a real estate development that will never be economically viable or succeed-Targets Apartment properties-Dallas-Houston, Austin, or San Antonio and or hotel properties statewide.

* The group believes some Texas real estate developers are one in the same as the Regional Center promoting the development and they fear the developer may be hiding key information from the EB-5 Visa investor including the part about the developer has used some of the investor money to bail out other projects, or they have misused the money by spending it on themselves.

* The group also believes some Texas real estate developers in cahoots with a Regional Center could be bribing officials in China or middlemen to gain the trust of Chinese or international investors who want to participate in the US EB-5 Visa Program.

According to the Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center, “If you possess information about a Texas based real estate developer cheating Chinese or international investors wishing to participate in the US EB-5 Visa Program please call us at 866-714-6466 and let’s have a conversation about reward potential. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever finding out what it might have been worth?” http://Texas.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the SEC first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing involving the US EB-5 Visa Program. The Texs Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a developer/employer or individual to come clean about them cooking the books, fraud or bribery involving a US EB-5 Visa Program. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Texas can contact the Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Texas.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, because Texas is one of the nation’s largest energy producing states mesothelioma does happen to very good people in Texas.

CCHR Documentary – The Marketing of Madness: Are We All Insane?

The Marketing of Madness: Are We All Insane?

The Marketing of Madness: Are We All Insane?

CCHR Florida

Over a million children under the age of six are currently on psychiatric drugs in America

Over a million children under the age of six are currently on psychiatric drugs in America

The Marketing of Madness is a closely researched film documenting a the psychiatric strategy to label children & adults and to place them on psychiatric drugs.

In Florida we have three vulnerable groups that are targeted for potentially dangerous psychiatric drugs, one is young school children, foster children, and our senior citizens.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida (CCHR), announced recently that they will be hosting a showing of the psychiatric documentary, The Marketing of Madness, in their downtown facility. The full-screen showing will be presented to visitors at no charge.

The Marketing of Madness is a closely researched film that documents a growing psychiatric strategy to label children and adults with mental “disorders” – which lack any medical basis of diagnosis – and to place them on powerful psychiatric drugs as treatment. These psychotropic drugs include seriously debilitating side effects and are often addictive and may take years to stop using.

The National Institute of Mental Health asserts that tens of millions of people in the USA alone have mental illnesses and that the number has been constantly growing for decades. This powerful documentary exposes the questionable ethics of the psychiatric profession's close marketing ties with profit-driven pharmaceutical corporations.

In addition, there is growing evidence of the link between psychotropic drugs prescribed to children, and epidemics of school violence. Seven out of the ten drugs linked to violence are either anti-depressants or ADHD drugs. Prescribing those labeled as “mentally ill” with hazardous drugs sends the disturbing message, that commercial profits are more important than the safety of children and families.[1]

The Marketing of Madness exposes the real insanity in our psychiatric “health care” system – profit-drive marketing at the expense of patients, families and communities. This mysterious modern day plague is explained by the profits generated by a “diagnosis” of mental illness lacking any physical test. The more that are diagnosed, the more profit for pharmaceutical supply chains and for psychiatrists who promote and prescribe these habit-forming drugs. Such profits tend to continue for years after a prescription is first implemented.

The rationale that “he shot those school children because he had a mental illness” is exposed by this documentary as a red herring designed to focus attention away from the real cause of sudden and unexplained violence – psychiatric drugs with homicidal and suicidal side effects.

Mental problems are defined in the psychiatric “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual” or “DSM”, which determines what behavior issues will be covered by insurance as a “disorder” and what these disorders will be called. Few parents or patients realize that none of the disorders can be physically tested or proven to exist medically. Symptoms and disorders contained in the DSM are assigned by a psychiatric panel and a show of hands, not through any application of the scientific method, lab test, or scientific peer review.

According to the IMDb website review, “The documentary exposes the truth behind the slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal a dangerous and often deadly sales campaign.”[2]

“In Florida we have three vulnerable groups that are targeted for these drugs,” said Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. “One is young schoolchildren who have no recourse when their parents are sometimes bullied into putting their child on psychotropics. Another group are foster children, even more defenseless. And the third is our senior citizens who are often not in a position to resist and are drugged into quietude routinely.”

To find out when the next screening of The Marketing of Madness will be held, please call CCHR at (727) 442-8820 or click here for a full list of upcoming events.

America the Drugged: A Nationwide Prescription Drug Epidemic

Over a million children under the age of six are currently on psychiatric drugs in America

Over a million children under the age of six are currently on psychiatric drugs in America

CCHR Florida

CCHR is a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health.

CCHR is a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health.

The number of prescriptions for Americans rose 85 percent between 1997 and 2016 demonstrating that the reliance on prescription drugs is the real epidemic.

Benzodiazepines are addictive psychiatric drugs with dangerous side effects such as suicide and they were the cause of 1,421 deaths compared to oxycodone which was the cause in 723 deaths.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to the Florida Medical Examiners Annual Report for 2016, drug related deaths increased in the state by 22% over 2015 and 5,725 of the deaths investigated were opioid-related deaths. That opioid use and abuse has become an epidemic in Florida and across the country is known, Florida recently joined Nevada, Texas, North Carolina, North Dakota and Tennessee in lawsuits against major opioid manufacturers whose products have sparked the opioid crisis and cost many billions of dollars in health costs and countless personal tragedies. [1]

However opioids are just a symptom of a bigger problem, a nationwide prescription drug epidemic warns the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health.

In 2016 Florida medical examiners investigated 27,383 deaths and the toxicology reports from these investigations revealed that drugs were present in 11,910 of these deaths. This report goes on to break down what drugs were found and if the drugs found were simply present or the actual cause of death.

When compared to 2015 it was determined that 24% more people were found to have one or more prescription drug in their system at the time of death and that 40% more Floridians died with at least one prescription drug in their system that was identified as the cause of death.

“It was shocking to learn that the five most frequently occurring drugs found in these examinations were alcohol, benzodiazepines, cocaine, cannabinoids and morphine,” said Diane Stein, President of the Florida chapter of CCHR. “Benzodiazepines are addictive psychiatric drugs with dangerous side effects such as suicide and they were the cause of 1,421 deaths compared to oxycodone which was the cause in 723 deaths.” [2]

CCHR warns that recent information from the health research firm Quintile IMS, reporting that the number of prescriptions for adults and children rose 85 percent between 1997 and 2016 in America, from 2.4 billion to 4.5 billion a year, demonstrates that the reliance on prescription drugs by the medical and psychiatric professions is the real epidemic and that simply targeting opioids will not solve this deadly problem.[3]

“As an example, Americans use more antidepressants that any of the 25 countries reviewed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. We are not just talking about opioids here we are talking about psychiatric drugs,” said Stein. “An investigation into the rampant prescription of mind altering drugs is long overdue.” [4]

Tom Girardi, the Nation’s Top Trial Lawyer, Kicks Off the Summer Season of TV Interview Show, “Without Notes"

"Without Notes" Begins its Summer Season with Tom Girardi

LOS ANGELES , CA, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Without Notes” is an acclaimed television show for the web that rediscovers the art of long form communication. The broadcast opens its summer season on June 1st with the nation’s top trial lawyer, Tom Girardi.

With nearly fifty years of experience representing victims, Girardi has obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements, handling claims involving wrongful death, commercial litigation, products liability, bad faith insurance, and toxic torts. In 2003, he received the most prestigious honor of being inducted into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame by the California State Bar.

“I am humbled to have the privilege to interview one of the most influential legal minds of the last five decades” said moderator, Michael Levine. “Referring to Tom Girardi as an attorney is like referring to Michael Jordan as a basketball player.”

In one of Girardi’s better known cases against Pacific Gas & Electric, the utility company agreed to pay $333 million to 650 residents of the desert community of Hinkley, California. The residents blamed incidents of cancer and other diseases on contaminated water leaked from a gas pumping station. This case was the inspiration for the film Erin Brockovich starring Julia Roberts.

Albeit, one of the most influential lawyers of our time, Girardi amorously sites, “Perry Mason. He was a lawyer on television, 7pm on Saturday night and I would watch that show every Saturday,” as one of his earliest childhood law inspirations.

Delving into its fourth year, “Without Notes” is honored to have Tom Girardi as an esteemed guest. He joins an impressive group of interviewees that include Associated Press writer Linda Deutsch, Dr. M. Zudhi Jasser, celebrated feminist and legal scholar Susan Estrich, and many more.
