The federal multi-district litigation panel for the Bard IVC Filters has appointed a federal judge in Phoenix to oversee the C.R. Bard Inc. (NYSE: BCR) IVC filter consolidated lawsuits for all Bard Inferior Vena Cava filter lawsuits nationwide.
An IVC filter was designed to capture blood clots in patients who could not use blood thinners. Our IVC Filter lawyers are filing defective IVC Filter lawsuits for people injured by a defective IVC Filter. Injuries include those from the fracturing of the filter and parts of the filter migrating and puncturing vital organs. Faulty IVC filters puncture veins, fracture and migrate to other parts of the body causing injury and even death.
Why Are IVC Filter Lawsuits Being Filed?
IVC filter is problematic because pieces can break off and thru-out the body and injure parts of the body or get embedded in the organ tissue. These temporary IVC filters are supposed to be taken out within six months. Very often the device is not removed in time to prevent complications.
