IVC Filter Lawsuits Centralized
November 23, 2015
Numerous IVC filter lawsuits have been centralized for pretrial proceedings before Arizona U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell. Patients are experiencing serious health injuries when the filters are breaking apart and piercing their hearts. In many cases, all of the sharp metal fragments of the faulty filters are not recoverable, leaving them migrating throughout the victim’s bodies until they come to rest with sometimes fatal consequences. IVC filters have caused permanent injuries. The risks include increased fracture, embolism, and IVC wall penetration. The recent NBC News Investigation brought additional publicity to IVC filter dangers. Despite years of FDA warnings about the risks, doctors nationwide continue to implant them. There are actually two multidistrict lawsuits (MDLs) pending: one against Cook Medical which will go before U.S. District Judge Richard L. Young in the Southern District of Indiana, and the MDL regarding Bard filters before U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell in the District of Arizona.
