Bard G2 Express IVC Filter Class Action

Bard Medical is now facing a number of class action lawsuits involving injuries allegedly caused by its Recovery and G2 series IVC filters. These devices are inserted into a patient’s inferior vena cava to trap blood clots before they reach the heart, lungs or brain. Unfortunately, Bard IVC filters have been linked to high rates of fracture, migration, organ perforation, and other problems.

Has a Bard IVC Filter Class Action Lawsuit Been Filed?

To date, at least 3 Bard IVC Filter Class Action lawsuits have been filed in courthouses around the country:

  • In July 2012, plaintiffs Samantha Bouldry, Eula Huff, Sandra Lorenz, and Janet Roberts filed a class action in Florida Circuit Court.
  • One month later, Goldie Brown and Shantel Brown filed an IVC Filter Class Action Lawsuit against Bard Medical in Philadelphia County.
  • The same day as the Browns filed their complaint, David DeLeon and Richard Gonzalez entered a class action in Los Angeles Superior Court.

FDA Warning on IVC Filters

The FDA has received hundreds of reports of injuries linked to vena cava filter side effects. In 2010, the administration issued a safety communication warning about the potential health risks associated with retrievable IVC filters. Retrievable filters are intended for short-term use, and are supposed to be removed when the patient’s risk of a pulmonary embolism has subsided.

About Bard G2 Express IVC Filter Class Action Lawsuits

Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Bard G2 Express IVC Filter Class Action Suit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of individuals and/or their family members who suffered serious injuries after receiving a Bard G2 Express IVC Filter.

A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”

Vena Cava Filter Side Effects

  • Pulmonary embolization of IVC filter fragments
  • Need for revision surgery
  • Device may be impossible to remove
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Internal bleeding
  • Arrhythmia
  • Death

Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action

In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.

However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Bard G2 Express IVC Filter Lawsuits on their behalf.
