IVC Filter Lawsuits
IVC blood clot filters have made significant progress in the medical world. However, there have been legal allegations against IVC filter manufacturers recently, leading to many lawsuits across the country. These lawsuits are legal claims against IVC filter manufacturers for severe complications afterward. As of now, there are thousands of IVC filter plaintiffs. The reason is that the lawsuits allege the manufacturers knew about the risks and complications of using their products but didn’t offer a prior warning to their customers. Bard, Cook Medical, and Boston Scientific (Greenfield) are some of the defendants in these lawsuits. Because these manufacturers’ IVC filters were defective, they are more likely to fracture or puncture organs in the body. When this happens, the filters will end up causing more harm than good.
