IVC Filter Lawyers, Washington, D.C.If you have suffered from the results of having an IVC filter implanted, IVC filter lawyers Washington, DC victims can count on, may be able to help you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Since 2005, the FDA has received thousands of reports that involve IVC filters and their complications. More specifically, these filters have been reported to fragment and embolize in the body.

  • Device migration 
  • Filter fracture

  • Perforation of the IVC
  • Difficulty removing the device

The results of these problems include but are not limited to:

  • Death
  • Cardiac tamponade
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Emergency removal of device
  • Hemorrhage 
  • Perforation of tissue, vessels, and organs

What is an IVC Filter?

IVC filters are small devices that are surgically implanted into the inferior vena cava. The inferior vena cava is the main vessel that returns blood from the lower half of the body to the heart. These devices are implanted in an attempt to catch blood clots from traveling to the lungs. This can reduce the risk of a fatal pulmonary embolism. 

Possible Damages

There are a number of possible damages that a plaintiff may seek in a lawsuit against these manufacturers. The damages include but are not limited to:

  • Past and future medical expenses resulting from any injury incurred by IVC filters 
  • Any past and future pain and suffering that was caused by the injuries, treatment and recovery process
  • Any potential wage loss that has been incurred, due to the complications of IVC filters
  • Any past or future loss of enjoyment of life
  • Any punitive damages that were caused by the complications of IVC filters

If you have suffered from using an IVC Filter in the past, it may be in your best interest to contact a lawyer today. Washington, DC IVC filter lawyers may be able to help you get the compensation that you deserve.

IVC Lawsuits

There are a number of allegations that IVC filters were defectively designed. The most current IVC filter lawsuit alleges that these manufacturers knew of the risk and failed to warn patients and doctors. 

There are allegations that Bard (the largest IVC filter manufacturer) forged a critical signature of an in-house regulatory specialist on an FDA application in order to gain FDA approval for the IVC filter device. NBC News reports that the regulatory specialist, Kay Fuller, stated that she never signed the FDA application for the IVC filter device because of her early concerns with the device. 

The FDA made a public statement about the risks of IVC filters:

“The FDA is concerned that these retrievable IVC filters, intended for short-term placement, are not always removed once a patient’s risk for PE subsides. Known long term risks associated with IVC filters include but are not limited to lower limb deep vein thrombosis (DVT), filter fracture, filter migration, filter embolization, and IVC perforation.” — FDA (Food & Drug Administration)

These are serious allegations. If you have suffered from having an IVC filter implanted, IVC filter lawyers Washington, DC victims can count on, may be able to help you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Contact Cohen & Cohen for a highly rated IVC filter lawyer in Washington, DC.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
