Blood clot filters are medical devices that are surgically implanted into the body to prevent clotted blood from reaching areas where they can cause serious problems, such as a pulmonary embolism. These blood clot filters are known medically as inferior vena cava filters, or IVC filters. They are primarily used for patients who are unable to take traditional blood thinning medication to reduce the risk of blood clots. Unfortunately, recent studies have indicated that the devices may be linked to serious medical conditions that can be life threatening if left untreated.
Blood Clot Filter Side-Effects
Some of the side-effects that have been reported by patients who received inferior vena cava filters include:
- Filter migration
- Filter breaking or fracture
- Vena Cava or organ perforation
If you or a loved one have received a blood clot filter and suffered from any of these complications, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit against the company that manufactured your device. We encourage you to contact our legal team, as we may be able to help you pursue a lawsuit if your story meets the initial case criteria. There are strict time deadlines to file defective medical device lawsuits, so it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. If you miss your deadline, we will be unable to pursue your claim, and you will be ineligible to receive a settlement payout.
