Compensation for IVC Filter Recipients

Inferior vena cava filters manufactured by C.R. Bard, Cook Medical, Cordis, Greenfield and other device manufacturing companies may be defectively designed, and may expose patients to an unnecessary risk of serious side effects, including device fracture, perforation of the inferior vena cava, and migration of the filter to other parts of the body. If you believe you have been adversely affected by alleged IVC filter side effects, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, medical bills, and pain and suffering.

Side Effects Associated with IVC Filters

Adverse side effects that have been linked to vena cava filter (IVC) devices include:

  • Filter is not able to be removed
  • Filter fractured
  • Filter tilted
  • Filter perforation
  • Filter migration
  • Puncture
  • Pulmonary obstruction
  • Internal bleeding
  • Pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Blood Clot
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

IVC Filter Lawsuit Information

"In 2014, the FDA issued a safety communication, recommending that retrievable blood clot filters be removed between one and two months after the risk of pulmonary embolism has subsided, in order to reduce the risk of potentially life-threatening complications."

As more information comes to light about the potential for IVC filters to cause serious side effects in patients at risk for blood clots and pulmonary embolism, a growing number of consumers who believe they have been harmed by IVC filter side effects are pursuing legal claims against C.R. Bard, Cook Medical and other device manufacturing companies. If you received a blood clot filter in the past, and you have since suffered side effects like filter embolization, filter migration or perforation of the vena cava, you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation against the manufacturer of the defective device.
