IVC Filter Injury Attorneys
Did your blood clot filter fail? Call the caring lawyers at Crumley Roberts!
Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are devices designed to catch blood clots in the legs or pelvis before they reach the heart or lungs. If they fail or malfunction, however, they can cause serious harm. If you or someone you love was implanted with an IVC filter and suffered serious side effects as a result, Crumley Roberts is here for you. We represent patients in lawsuits related to defective IVC filters and other medical devices. When life knocks you down, we can help pick you back up.
With an IVC filter injury lawyer on your side, you can pursue financial compensation to cover medical expenses and lost earnings associated with your injuries. While it is true that no amount of money could possibly erase the pain and suffering associated with IVC failure injuries or the loss of a loved one, it can make a difference in facilitating a more stable future for you and your family. Holding companies accountable for their defective products can also help protect others from suffering the same fate.
Helping Patients Injured by IVC Filter Failures
IVC filter failure can take many different forms, all of which are potentially life-threatening.
- An IVC filter can break apart. Filter fragments may obstruct veins and may travel to a patient’s heart or lungs, where they can cause serious injury or death.
- An IVC filter can migrate from its original position. Filters or fragments of the filters can become dislodged and migrate to other areas of the body, causing organ perforation.
- An IVC filter can otherwise fail to work as intended. Filters can fail to perform their primary function of stopping blood clots from reaching the heart or lungs, leading to pulmonary embolism.
