Tennessee Blood Filter Injury Lawyer
Our Memphis dangerous drugs lawyers are investigating cases against IVC filters, which are also sometimes called blood filters or vascular filters.
These tiny devices are implanted in your vein to filter your blood. They ones we’re investigating are removable/temporary, and they’re used on people with extreme risk for clotting, pulmonary embolism, stroke, or heart attack.
When these temporary IVC filters fracture and break, they can migrate to the heart and require open heart surgery, or even cost you your life. And this is happening at rates 30x higher than the product these filters were meant to replace!
Recent studies suggest they may have a failure rate as high as 40% after 5 years. That means almost half the people using a removable IVC filter may experience serious side effects, and even death.
Those numbers are terrifying and infuriating. As a Memphis personal injury lawyer, I want to help make the public aware of this threat and hold the manufacturers accountable.
If you or a loved one has been injured by an IVC filter, you may have experienced one of these complications:
- serious heart problems
- internal bleeding
- need for open heart surgery
- need for surgery on blood vessels
- permanent injury to vital organs
