Victims of defective IVC filters that were used to prevent pulmonary embolisms or blood clots but instead caused injury are legally entitled to seek recovery payments for their medical expenses, their lost present to future salary, and their pain and suffering due to IVC filter side effects or complications.
Such payments can come by means of an IVC filter lawsuit, which can target the negligent manufacturers that designed, created, and sold the device.
While some IVC filters do not cause harmful side effects, others do, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified some of them. Even though the FDA may have originally approved such devices, injuries arising after their implementation have caused the agency to reconsider and to alert the public about possibly harmful IVC filters.
In an IVC filter lawsuit, the manufacturers of such devices can be held accountable for the injuries they caused.
The list of IVC filter manufacturers includes:
