Bard IVC Filters are sometimes implanted into patients who are at risk of a pulmonary embolism. While there has not been a recall on this potentially dangerous medical device, there have been growing concerns about the potential hazard of pieces of the device fracturing. These pieces can end up puncturing or perforating a vital organ. Patients are then exposed to other risks such as infection and internal bleeding.
There have also been circumstances where parts of the IVC filter have detached or moved. This could lead to an Illinois product liability claim if you have suffered serious injuries from a defective IVC filter.Proving this type of claim can be complicated as you’ll need a variety of evidence that proves not only what went wrong with the medical device, but how those defects have injured you. There also may be more than 1 party responsible in a product liability claim, which can further complicate the matter. Injuries from the Bard IVC filters can be life-threatening and even fatal. Contact a Chicago product liability attorney if you have suffered adverse effects from this medical device. You may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries, including current and future medical care related to the injury as well as lost wages from work and your pain and suffering.
