IVC (inferior vena cava) filters are designed to prevent recurrent and life-threatening pulmonary embolisms. Unfortunately, evidence shows that IVC filters can cause serious internal injuries and wrongful death. When IVC filters fail, they may fracture, break, or move in the body. When metal parts break off, they can damage nearby organs such as the heart or lungs.
OnderLaw aims to recover compensation for the losses and damages caused by these defective medical devices. If you or a loved one has been harmed by IVC filter implants, compensation may be due.

Recalled IVC filters were first approved by the FDA in 2002. According to reports, Bard Medical, the manufacturer, has known of fatal IVC filter problems for more than fifteen years.
Yet they failed to warn doctors and patients about these dangers. Bard received adverse event reports regarding IVC filter injuries starting in 2004.
The public did not learn of IVC filter defects until 2010, when, after receiving more than 900 adverse event reports, federal regulators issued a Bard IVC filter warning.
The FDA issued the warning, citing serious injuries and death associated with IVC filter fracture, migration, and perforation. These injuries often resulted in people requiring open-heart surgery or other major procedures.
