Bard IVC Lawsuits Consolidated in Multidistrict Litigation in Arizona
In today’s court ruling, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation has announced that IVC lawsuits against C.R. Bard will now be consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the District of Arizona. While Bard opposed the MDL, plaintiffs have argued that the number of lawsuits will grow exponentially over the next few months and years, and could result in thousands of similar lawsuits against the manufacturer of the faulty device. It is projected that five hundred thousand or more inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are within the qualified dates for the lawsuit.
Consolidation is good news for victims and their families, who will now have an easier time preparing claims for compensation. In light of today’s announcement,Schneider Hammers would like to inform victims throughout Georgia, the Southeast, and the entire United States that our firm is prepared to represent you against C.R. Bard and can help you fight to get the financial compensation you deserve.
What are IVC Filters?
IVC filters are designed to be implanted into the bodies of patients who are at risk for medical conditions caused by blood clots. The filters are supposed to be able to catch these clots before they break off and travel to a person’s lungs, but a significant amount of patients have reported serious and life-threatening complications.
You may have a case against C.R. Bard if your or a loved one have suffered the following after being implanted with the IVC filter device:
- IVC thrombosis
- Access site thrombosis
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Filter migration
- IVC filter fracture
- Caval penetration
