Bard IVC Filter Lawsuits

Bard IVC filters are some of the most used IVC filters by physicians for stopping blood clots in patients who are unable to take traditional blood thinning medication.

Unfortunately, the Bard systems have been linked to high rates of device fracture as well as high rates of device migration. When filters break or migrate, there is a risk for severe internal injuries to take place, such as perforation of the inferior vena cava, or damage to other organs in the area.

Our legal team is currently investigating claims against Bard for their IVC filter systems. If you or a loved one has experienced complications after having a Bard IVC filter installed, you may be able to file a lawsuit and receive compensation. We are currently pursuing lawsuits against Bard for the following IVC filter systems:

Bard also manufactured the Recovery IVC filter in 2003, but it was “silently recalled” by the company in 2005, just before they received approval for the G2.

If you or a loved one have had any of these Bard models installed, and subsequently suffered serious complications, we encourage you to contact our legal team. You may be able to file a lawsuit against Bard to receive compensation for injuries that you suffered. There are many complications that IVC filter systems have been known to cause. These complications include:

What are the Criteria for Filing an IVC Filter Lawsuit?

Retrievable IVC filters are wire devices implanted in the vena cava, the body’s largest vein, to stop blood clots from reaching the heart and lungs. These devices are used when blood thinners are not an option.

Manufacturers other than Bard include Cook and Johnson & Johnson.

While permanent IVC filters have been used since the 1960s with almost no reports of failure, retrievable IVC filters were introduced in 2003, promoted for use in bariatric surgery, trauma surgery and orthopedic surgery.

Risks associated with the retrievable IVC filters include migration, fracture and perforation, leading to embolism, organ damage and wrongful death.

Any patient who received a Bard or Cook IVC filter implant and matches any of the following criteria is eligible to file an IVC filter lawsuit:

  • IVC filter fractured or failed
  • Removal or replacement of the filter was required because of the danger of fracture/failure
  • IVC filter migrated or became dislodged from its original placement point
  • A physician recommended removal but the filter could not be removed due to risk of further injury
