IVC Filter Injury Lawyers
Fighting Back Against Defective Medical Devices in Pennsylvania
Hundreds of thousands of patients in the United States each year are treated with IVC filters. IVC stands for “inferior vena cava,” a large vein in the upper region of the upper body, adjacent to the lungs. These filters are inserted there for the purpose of preventing pulmonary embolisms in patients possessing a high risk, which are potentially fatal blood clots that can form in the lungs.
While these filters perform their intended task more often than not, they are also known to increase the risks of other potentially deadly conditions, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), among others. To date, dozens of patients have suffered fatal exposure to conditions caused by the medical device, and if you have been affected by IVC filter complications, we want to help.

Potential Faults of IVC Filter Manufacturers
Several of the leading IVC filter manufacturers, which include C.R. Bard and Cook Medical, have been under investigation since the early 2000s. These investigations have uncovered startling faults that may be used against them in a medical malpractice claim.
Investigations have uncovered the following potential factors:
- Dozens of patient deaths
- Hundreds of patient injuries
- Ignored warnings of the product’s dangers
- Potentially fraudulent FDA approval
- Potential breach of warranty
These factors may or may not play a part in your case, depending on the manufacturer of your IVC filter, the nature of your implant, and many other circumstances. However, we are learning more about these every day, and negligence seems to be clear.
