IVC filter lawsuitIVC blood clot filters are meant to keep patients safe by catching blood clots in the veins before they enter the heart, lungs, or brain. Unfortunately, many patients are experiencing severe injuries due to defects which cause the filter device to fall apart and travel through the cardiovascular system. If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury due to a defective IVC (Inferior Vena Cava) blood clot filter, you may be entitled to substantial compensation.
The spider-like metallic device is meant to prevent pulmonary embolisms, but carries serious defects and risks, including the device splintering, migrating through the vascular system, and penetrating organs. Metal fragments traveling into the heart or lungs may cause severe discomfort and may need to be surgically removed. Patients also report blood clots developing at the filter site.
Serious injuries associated with defective Bard IVC blood clot filters include irregular heart rhythms, internal bleeding, heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism and even death. While there is currently no recall for any IVC blood clot filters, the Food and Drug Administration advises patients to consult with their doctor to ensure the device is intact and has not migrated.
If you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury while using an IVC filter such as the Bard Recovery filter, Bard G2 filter, the Bard G2 Express filter, the Cook Gunther Tulip filter, or the Cook Celect filter, you may be able to file a product liability or personal injury case against the manufacturer.
