FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Memphis Law Firm
Investigating Blood Filter Injuries 

Memphis, TN, 10/23/15 —
Memphis personal injury law firm Darrell Castle & Associates is
accepting cases related to recoverable IVC filters, which are
implanted in the veins to filter blood for patients at risk of blood
clots in the lower extremities.
Attorney Darrell Castle is taking clients injured by IVC filters,
effective immediately. 

The
temporary vascular filters are designed and marketed by Bard
Peripheral Vascular and Cook Group Incorporated. Their high failure
rate has been well documented: one study showed at least 40% failure
within 5 years. Another study showed the filter designed by
pharmaceutical company Cook, called the Cook
Celect® Platinum Vena Cava Filter, had
a 100% failure rate within 71 months. 

When
the filters fail, fracture, or break,
they may migrate through the veins and cause internal
bleeding, severe chest pain, spinal pain, and death through the
puncturing of internal organs. Retrieval may require
open heart surgery,
kidney or lung surgery, or surgery on the vascular system. 

“The
failure rate has been extraordinarily high,” says attorney Darrell
Castle. “These things are crippling and killing people, and there’s
reason to believe the companies have known about it.” 

Founded in 1984, Memphis area
personal injury firm Darrell
Castle & Associates has represented plaintiffs for numerous
pharmaceutical injury cases
, including cases against Yaz®/Yasmin®,
NuvaRing®, Tylenol®, and medical devices such as hip replacements.
The firm received the Martindale-Hubbell® Client Distinction Award
in April 2013 for responsiveness and quality in serving Memphis area
clients. 

Anyone
with a recoverable filter implanted who needed surgery to remove part
or all of the product may contact
Darrell Castle immediately
at 901-327-1212 or by email at
info(at)darrellcastle.com.
Additionally, the firm seeks anyone with a
filter still implanted who has experienced internal bleeding, severe
chest pain, spinal pain, or the need for heart, kidney, lung, or
vascular (vein) surgery.
