If You Need An IVC Filter attorney in Kansas City, we can help.
Our law firm is currently investigating and filing claims for people in Kansas City and the surrounding areas who have been hurt or killed by an IVC Filter. An IVC Filter is a medical device made of wire designed to be implanted by doctors in the major vein called the inferior vena cava. The purpose of the IVC Filter is to prevent pulmonary embolism which could result in blood clots traveling up the inferior vena cava to the lungs or heart. These devices were designed to be retrievable and removed once the risk to the patient had passed. However, in reality, they are almost never removed.
When left in the vena cava, the IVC Filter can tilt, migrate up the vein or perforate the vein. Even worse, the IVC Filter can fracture, migrate through the body and perforate or damage the heart, lung or kidney. When any of these things happen, there can be serious consequences for the patient, including the need for hospitalization and surgery to remove the device or even death. If any of these things have happened to you or a loved one, you should contact an IVC Filter attorney in Kansas City. Kuhlman & Lucas has the resources and experience to handle your IVC Filter case.
Two of the manufacturers of IVC Filters are C.R. Bard and Cook Medical.
