IVC Filter Lawsuit Lawyer in Fargo
IVC Filter Lawsuits
An IVC (inferior vena cava) filter is a device implanted into the veins of patients during a surgical procedure to prevent blood clots from entering into a patient’s lungs. The device acts as an alternative to blood-thinning medication. An IVC filter has an appearance similar to that of a coat hanger.
If you have experienced complications due to this device, our Fargo IVC filter lawsuit lawyer at Solberg Stewart Miller may be able to help you win compensation to cover any damages you suffered.
What is the Problem with IVC Filters?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received many concerning reports about IVC filters. These adverse reports state that patients have experienced punctured organs, blood vessels, and filter migration to different parts of the body. In 2010, the FDA released a warning about IVC filters stating that these devices have various risks and should be removed as soon as the risk of blood clot subsides. Otherwise, the IVC filter can break loose and migrate throughout the body causing serious injuries and/or death.
IVC filters are made by C.R. Bard and Cook Group Inc. There are three brands in particular that have been the subject of various lawsuits:
The Bard Recovery filter,
The Bard G2 filter, and
The Bard G2 Express filter.
