IVC Filter Litigation

 

Inferior Vena Cava filters (IVC filters) are

spider-like, medical devices designed to

catch blood clots before they move to the

lungs.  Each year, approximately 200,000

blood clot filters (IVC filters) are implanted

by surgeons to prevent pulmonary embolisms.

 

BUT, certain brands of IVC filters are not as

harmless as originally thought and could result

in causing severe medical complications.

 

Patients whose filters fracture inside the body are

at a risk of severe injuries, including:

 

  • Hemorrhage

  • Cardiac/pericardial tamponade

  • Chronic excruciating pain

  • Perforation of vital tissue, vessels or organs

  • Death

 

Studies show 1 out of 4 IVC filters fail and fracture, potentially causing death.

 

If you or someone you know has been injured by an IVC Filter, contact us today.
