IVC filters are small spider-like nets that are implanted into a patient's bloodstream in order to prevent blood clots from entering the heart or lungs.

But a recent NBC News investigation revealed that as many as 27 deaths have been associated with the product, known commercially as the "Recovery Filter." Apparently the filters have been failing in a variety of ways, including metal shards breaking off, entering the bloodstream, and

ultimately migrating to the lungs or heart.

The product's manufacturer, CR Bard, allegedly knew of the damage the filter was causing but failed to take steps to make it safer or take it off the market. Bard has been accused of turning instead to a PR firm to publicly downplay the product's risks.

Thousands of people across the country have IVC filters implanted in them. If you or someone you know has such a filter, you might want to consult with your doctor about the risks of injury.

That's why it's always good to talk to a lawyer whenever there's an injury or accident only a lawyer on your side can determine the full extent to which you might be compensated.
