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, migration of the filter – which occurs from normal daily activities – is one of the most common. In the event that the device migrates away from its intended location, it may no longer perform its function of preventing health risks such as pulmonary embolism.
Additionally, filter migration can cause additional health risks including organ perforation. In the event of migration, the sharp edges of the device can cut into the vena cava vein as well as nearby organs. When this occurs, victims will often need surgery to correct this serious medical problem. Lawsuits can help recoup the cost of the additional surgeries and extended stays at the hospital as well as other damages.
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.
