IVC Filters

IVC FilterInferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters, devices used in the prevention of pulmonary embolism, may cause dangerous, life-threatening complications. If you had a temporary or permanent IVC filter implanted and suffered from health problems, you could be entitled to compensation.

Complications associated with IVC filters include:

  • "Cardiac tamponade", a life-threatening condition involving bleeding in and around the heart
  • Internal bleeding
  • Perforation, puncture, and other serious damage to the inferior vena cava wall and/or the heart or lungs
  • Hematoma or nerve injury at the puncture site
  • Constant, severe pain in the heart, chest, or elsewhere in the body
  • Pulmonary embolus (a blockage of an artery in the lungs)
  • Respiratory distress
  • Infection
  • Other serious injury or death

If you had an IVC filter implanted and developed health problems, or if a loved one died due to complications from this device, you may have a case. Contact our attorneys and let us put you on the right path to getting the compensation you deserve.
