IVC Filters were marketed to prevent blood clots from reaching the heart or lungs. Thousands of IVC Filter lawsuits have been filed claiming the manufacturers were negligent in the design of the IVC Filters. Patients have experienced bleeding, organ damage, chronic pain and breakage of the IVC Filter allowing metal fragments to move through the blood and damage organs. If the IVC Filter fragments reach the heart or lungs, patients experience chest pain, heart issues, shortness of breath, internal bleeding, pulmonary embolism, stroke, and sometimes death.
