NEWARK, N.J., Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that there has been a rise in IVC filter lawsuit claims against C.R. Bard Inc. and Cook Medical Inc. According to court records, the claims went from 189 in October to 222 in November. The lawsuits all have similar allegations, claiming that C.R. Bard Inc. and Cook Medical Inc. failed to let patients know that the IVC filters break, tilt, and migrate from the initial insertion position and then puncture the lungs, heart, or inferior vena cava. Different pretrial proceedings are already underway against the two manufacturers. The lawsuit claims against C.R. Bard over its Recovery and G2 IVC filters are consolidated in the U.S. District Court in the District of Arizona, while the claims against Cook Medical Inc. are pending in a multidistrict litigation (MDL 2570) in the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Indiana.
IVC filters are "medical devices used to help prevent pulmonary embolisms by catching blood clots and keeping them from traveling to the lungs." The FDA has received more than 900 reports of adverse events since 2005. Serious injuries include: device migration, device breakage, and perforated blood vessels and organs. Legal-Bay is actively offering case funding for IVC filter cases.
