The answer to this question is “most likely”. Lawsuits are currently being filed by patients who were harmed by IVC filter implants. Recent studies have indicated that there may be a link between IVC filters and serious medical complications. One of these complications is filter fracture. Filter fracture can occur randomly after an IVC filter is implanted in the body. It is believed that the filter can fracture simply from regular breathing and movement by a patient.
Fracture of the filter is dangerous for several reasons. First, when the filter breaks, it may be no longer able to perform its intended job of catching blood clots and preventing life-threatening conditions such as a pulmonary embolism. Additionally, when the device fractures, pieces of it may break off and damage surrounding organs. Inferior vena cava perforation is one of the leading complications that has been associated with these devices and when filters break the risk for this complication rises greatly.
If you received an IVC filter implant and suffered complications, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit against the device’s makers. You should contact our lawyers if you believe you have a claim. We will listen to your story and determine what your best option will be. There are time deadlines for filing lawsuits, so it is important you contact an attorney right away if you believe you have been harmed.
