An IVC filter is a wire that is inserted into the inferior vena cava to prevent blood clots from entering the heart, lungs, kidneys or brain by catching the clots in the bloodstream and allowing them to break down over time.
An ongoing IVC filter class-action lawsuit claims the makers of IVC filters were negligent in the design of these devices, and that they are failing at a high rate. Patients are experiencing bleeding, organ damage, and chronic pain.
If you or someone you know has been injured or harmed by an IVC filter, you or another individual may be entitled to compensation. Request a free consultant with experienced attorney using the button below as soon as possible.
