Representing Those Harmed Trying to Prevent Blood Clots

It’s common knowledge that when you experience a blood clot, you are also now at risk to develop deep vein thrombosis, a pulmonary embolism, a heart attack, or even a stroke. If you or someone that you love, has had an IVC filter implanted, it’s quite possible that you may also be at risk for the same type of dangerous complications, not to mention, you may also be entitled to financial compensation. The attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban are here to provide you with aggressive advocacy every step of the way, in an attempt to hold the necessary retailers accountable for any damages or suffering you may have endured.


What are the Dangers of IVC Filters? What Should I Be Aware of? 

Typically, IVC filter problems arise with the insertion of the device or defects within the device itself, causing painful and often times even deadly complications for those who are using them. In some more particular cases, a doctor may unfortunately choose to not remove an IVC device from a person’s body even if it’s the right call to do so. If the device tilts, shifts or migrates within the vein, or if pieces of it break off and migrate through the body, it can cause: 

  • Vein perforation.
  • Internal bleeding.
  • Respiratory distress.
  • Chronic and/or severe pain.
  • Stroke.
  • Death.


The longer that an IVC device is left inside of a person’s body, the higher their risk is for breakage or migration.
