IVC Filters Have Been Linked To Serious Injuries
If you or a loved one experienced complications after having received an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Jason J. Joy & Associates, P.L.L.C., has extensive experience handling these types of cases. We have helped clients throughout Texas fight for their rights when it matters most.
What Is An IVC Filter?
An IVC filter is a medical device that is implanted with the intent to prevent pulmonary embolism (PE). In 2010 and again in 2015, the FDA issued advisories discussing that IVC filters are causing serious injuries, and some resulting in death. Hundreds of injuries and deaths are currently reported as linked to IVC filter failure. Thousands of reports are currently being investigated, nationwide.
The Many Ways IVC Filter Patients Are At Risk
Companies producing and marketing IVC filters stand accused of neglecting to inform consumers, including doctors and patients alike, of the severe dangers of IVC filters. IVC filter patients who have suffered or are currently suffering the following complications may be entitled to a settlement:
- IVC filter migration
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- IVC filter fracture
- Pulmonary embolism
- Organ perforation
- Device infection
