These Bard IVC filters may fragment and cause embolisms in the body. IVC filters are implanted into the inferior vena cava (IVC) in order to prevent blood clots that may develop in the body from reaching vital organs such as the lungs or heart. If this has happened to you please contact an experienced IVC filter attorney immediately. This is a common risk in individuals with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE). If you or a loved one has received a Bard IVC Filter and suffered fragmentation injury, you may be eligible to file a Pennsylvania Bard IVC Filter Lawsuit to recover financial compensation for your personal injuries.

Bard IVC filters are made of wire and and have spider-like arms. Many times, these wire arms become detached from the medical device and our blood transports them to the lungs or heart. The longer you have an IVC filter implanted, the greater the odds of a serious medical problem. Sometimes a medical professional will leave an IVC filter in a patient’s body for far too long. Further, the ability of a doctor to successfully remove an IVC filter decreases as time goes on. If you’ve suffered from an IVC filter injury, call our Pennsylvania IVC filter lawyers today for a free consultation.
