The Ritchie Law Firm is investigating claims against C.R. Bard, Inc. (“Bard”) and Cook Medical (“Cook”) regarding defective inferior vena cava (“IVC”) filters. IVC filters are small, spider-like surgical implants that are placed in the inferior vena cava to limit the migration of blood clots. IVC filters may cause severe complications and could lead to serious injury or death. These complications include:
Filter migration Filter fracture or perforation
Pulmonary embolism Stroke
Compromised respiration Death
If you feel that an IVC filter implant may be the reason for your or a loved one’s injuries, you need a team of experienced attorneys to review your case.
Multiple lawsuits have already been filed against IVC manufacturers, and the FDA is recommending IVC filter removal from patients as soon as possible.
