IVC We're Making a Difference.

IVC Filter Injuries & Patient Rights

Helping the Injured Seek Compensation

Developed to prevent lethal pulmonary embolisms, IVC filters are a surgical alternative to blood thinners. Rather than preventing clots with blood thinning medication, patients can opt for a vein implant that will physically keep embolisms from reaching the lungs. Unfortunately, poorly designed or manufactured IVC filters can result in effects just as lethal as a pulmonary embolism. When bad manufacturing causes you injury or takes the life of a loved one, you deserve to face the people responsible and hold them accountable. At the law firm of BCH, we help clients do exactly that. We represent clients and their families who have suffered severe injuries as a result of faulty medical devices.

Our Record of Success

The Effects of Faulty IVC Filters

IVC filters are a popular alternative to blood thinners—since 1979, nearly 300,000 patients have received one. However, when the procedure or device fails, the results can be disastrous. The FDA has received 900+ complaints of adverse effects of poorly-manufactured filters, usually from companies such as C.R. Bard.

The effects of flawed IVC filters include the following:

  • Perforations of the vein
  • Fractured / left behind filter pieces
  • Punctures of the surrounding organs
  • Movement (migration) of the filter
  • Permanent embedding of temporary filters

C.R. Bard, the target of a large number of IVC filter lawsuits, knew about the faults of their design within a year of its release. However, they withheld this information from the FDA, physicians, and consumers. As a result, more people suffered than was just or necessary because Bard prioritized profit over human life. In some cases, families lost their loved ones because this report was not made public until years later. According to our attorneys, this behavior is unacceptable.

How BCH Can Help

Our attorneys at BCH know how to develop claims that make clear connections between your own health struggles and the recklessness of your medical device manufacturers. If you or a loved one have experienced punctured organs, uncontrollable bleeding, and any other adverse effects of your IVC filter, you deserve justice.
