Legal Representation for Patients Harmed by Defective Medical Devices

When medical devices that are intended to help patients cause harm, the patient may seek compensation for the injury caused by the device. Inferior vena cava filters, or IVC filters, have harmed more than a thousand patients and resulted in the death of dozens more. If you or a loved one suffered harm, let a Flowood IVC filter attorney from Shelton Davis, PLLC advise you of your legal options.

Problems Caused by IVC Filters

IVC filters are tiny devices made of thin wire. The filters are inserted into the inferior vena cava in order to prevent blood clots from traveling to the heart and lungs, causing fatalities. Unfortunately, these devices can cause serious harm or even death when pieces break off and puncture the inferior vena cava, veins, and organs.

Patients with IVC filters have suffered problems, either using the device or during removal, such as:

  • Migration of the device
  • Components of the device becoming detached
  • Fracturing of the filter
  • The filter becoming embedded in the inferior vena cava
  • A vein or organ becoming perforated by the filter
  • Abnormal filter position
  • Blood clots in the filter

The media has taken note of the problems caused by these filters. NBC News reported that a major device manufacturer was aware of the associated problems, but failed to remove them from the market and chose to attempt to cover up the issues and continue selling the devices knowing they were faulty. This action put the lives of many hundreds of thousands of patients at risk.
