June 23, 2016 — An IVC filter class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of everyone who was implanted with a blood clot filter made by C.R. Bard.
The lawsuit (PDF) was filed on May 5 in the U.S. District Court for Arizona (Case No. 2:16-cv-01374).
C.R. Bard is currently facing over 600 lawsuits in a federal Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2641) in the U.S. District Court for Arizona under Judge David G. Campbell.
On June 21, Judge Campbell issued an order (PDF) consolidating the class action with other lawsuits in the MDL.
The defendants, C.R. Bard and Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc., are accused of negligence for selling defective medical devices and failing to warn about side effects.
Most of the lawsuits against C.R. Bard are individual lawsuits filed by people with serious injuries. However, the class action is seeking to represent everyone who was implanted with a blood clot filter made by C.R. Bard, regardless of whether they have been injured.
According to the complaint:
“IVC filters are prone to break into parts (fracture) … migrate to other locations in the bloodstream or to become lodged in the heart or lungs … [and] tilting within the IVC, perforating the vena cava and/or causing the formation of blood clots.”
