Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filter Lawsuits

Dangerous Devices Litigation Lawyer

Attorney E. Scott Verhine represents clients across the United States who were injured by an Inferior Vena Cava, or IVC, filter. The IVC filter has been linked to causing hemorrhages, heart attacks, blood clots and other life-threatening injuries. IVC Filters are small devices which are intended to be inserted inside the inferior vena cava, the main blood vessel that returns blood to the lower half of the body to the heart.

IVC Filters are intended to catch blood clots, also known as "thrombi", before they reach the lungs. Blood clots are very dangerous and are referred to as pulmonary embolisms when they reach the lungs. The use of IVC Filters has increased dramatically over the years with thousands of Americans receiving the devices annually.

However, IVC Filters have been linked to serious and sometimes fatal complications including:

  • migration of the device;
  • fracture of the device;
  • movement of the device causing organ rupture; and
  • other serious injuries including the inability to remove the device.

In a 2014 safety communication, the FDA recommended that physicians consider removing the IVC filter as soon as the threat of a pulmonary embolism subsides so that the long term risks of the IVC Filters are minimized.

E. Scott Verhine is pursuing legal claims against the manufacturers of certain IVC Filters for violating the standard of care owed by a manufacturer to a patient. These claims include defective design and failure to warn claims among others.
