Simon Greenstone Panatier represents individuals who have been injured as a result of implantation of IVC Filters. These filters, which were intended to help prevent blood clots, were often unnecessary, but aggressive and irresponsible marketing lead to their overuse.
Some complications from IVC Filters include: filter perforation of the walls of the vena cava and into surrounding organs, filter fracture, filter migration, and the formation of blood clots at the site of the filter. All of these complications can be extremely serious and life threatening.
Concerns about IVC Filters lead the FDA to issue advisories in 2010 and 2014 indicating that IVC filter use should be limited, and filters should be removed as soon as possible.
If you or a loved one was injured as a result of an IVC Filter, the trial lawyers at Simon Greenstone Panatier may be able to help.
