IVC filter migration lawsuits are being filed for patients who had this device surgically implanted. Inferior vena cava filters, or IVC filters, are medical devices that are inserted into the body to prevent blood clots from causing a pulmonary embolism. Usually, these devices are used for people who are unable to take traditional blood thinning medication.
Recently, there have been increasing complaints regarding IVC filters and potential life-threatening complications. Filter migration is one of the major complications that has been linked to IVC filters. Migration occurs when the device moves from its intended location. Experts believe this movement may be due to regular breathing of the patient, or aortic palpitations; both of which are normal, every day occurrences that cannot be prevented by the patient. When the filter migrates, it may no longer be able to preform its job. Additionally, filter migration can cause damage to nearby organs, as sharp edges from the device can puncture or perforate the inferior vena cava or other nearby areas.
Several lawsuits have already been filed and many more are expected to be filed in the near future. Settlements in these cases are expected to be substantial due to the seriousness of the alleged complications. If you or a loved one have been injured by an IVC filter, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit against the makers of the device and recover compensation for your suffering.
