Current Lawsuits for Medical Devices

IVC Filter

SWMW’s pharmaceutical team is currently accepting cases for those who have suffered injury as a result of the IVC (inferior vena cava) Filter, a device designed to capture blood clots before they reach the lungs. Lawsuits that have been filed claim negligence, failure to sufficiently warn the patient of risks, design defects, manufacturing defects and negligent misrepresentation. Five IVC Filter products by different manufacturers have been identified as a source of problems in recent lawsuits:

  • The Bard Recovery filter
  • The Bard G2 filter
  • The Bard G2 Express filter
  • The Cook Gunther Tulip filter
  • The Cook Celect filter

IVC Filters are cage-like metal devices implanted in the veins of people for a brief period of time to catch blood clots before they reach the lungs. These filters have been linked to numerous complications like vein and organ perforation, migration to other parts of the body or malfunction that can injure patients.

Did you or someone you know develop complications as a result of an IVC Filter? Contact us anytime day or night!

Other Medical Devices Involved in Lawsuits

Medical devices are often not tested or regulated properly, then rushed to the marketplace to make maximum profits. After these devices caused serious injury and even death to thousands of Americans, the manufacturers started taking some of them off the market. At SWMW Law, our attorneys have the extensive experience in holding medical device makers responsible for causing your injuries, or your family member’s death.
