Americans who have suffered due to defective retrievable IVC filters can seek justice through legal action. With the help of experienced IVC filter attorneys, IVC filter lawsuits are achieving favorable settlements for victims and their families.
To date, IVC filter lawsuits have produced favorable settlements for victims who’ve pursued legal action with the representation of an IVC filter attorney. These lawsuit results include the following:
As for how much money you can claim in a lawsuit or receive in an IVC settlement; that depends, in part, on the individual nature of your injury and costs associated with the injury. Families of victims who have died due to defective IVC filter complications may also be able to claim substantial payments for their losses, including, but not limited to: medical bills, funeral costs, loss of future wages, and loss of companionship.
Victims who survive a defective IVC filter may be able to claim payments for lost wages or earning capacity, medical expenses related to the injury, and impacts on the victim’s overall well-being and physical and mental health.
At trial, a jury can weigh all of these factors in determining the amount of an IVC filter claim.
However, to date it’s believed no IVC filter lawsuits have proceeded all the way through trial to a jury verdict. Instead, IVC filter settlements have been made in advance of such a conclusion, sometimes just days after a trial has begun. This can happen when it’s clear early in the trial that plaintiffs would prevail in a jury verdict.
