If you are a victim of complications due to an IVC filter implant, you are likely able to get a settlement. Presently, lawsuits are being filed by those who were harmed by inferior vena cava filters. Studies have shown that there is strong evidence indicating a link between IVC filters and serious medical complications. Of these complications, fracture of the filter – which occurs from normal daily activities – is one of the most common.
First, when the filter breaks, it may be unable to perform its intended job of catching blood clots and preventing life-threatening conditions such as a pulmonary embolism. When the device fractures, pieces of it may break off and damage surrounding organs. IVC perforation is one of the leading complications that has been associated with these devices and when filters break the risk for this complication rises greatly.
If you had an IVC filter installed and experienced medical complications, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit against the device maker. In this case, you should contact our lawyers if you believe you have a claim. We will listen to your case and determine what the best legal path is for you. In there being strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits, it is important to contact an attorney right away if you believe you have been harmed.
