How Do I Join A Class Action Lawsuit for IVC Blood Clot Filter Problems?
Individuals throughout the United States may be entitled to financial compensation through an IVC filter class action lawsuit, wrongful death lawsuit or individual injury lawsuit as result of problems caused by the small filters implanted to catch blood clots.
As a result of dangerous and potentially life-threatening design defects, cases are being reviewed for individuals who have experienced problems like:
- Fracture or Migration of the IVC Filter
- Perforation of the Heart, Lung, Vena Cava or Other Tissue
- Cardiac or Pericardial Tamponade
- Ventrical Tachycardia
- Persistent Chest Pain or Shortness of Breath

Class Action vs. Injury Lawsuit for IVC filter
Most of the injury claims being pursued by the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. will be handled as individual product liability lawsuits, as opposed to being part of a class action.
While many people refer these “mass-tort” claims as an IVC filter class action, since a large number of people are pursuing an injury or wrongful death lawsuits over the same product, there are important differences.
Class action claims over IVC filters may be pursued for medical monitoring or recovery of certain damages that are consistent across a class of individuals. However, those who have suffered serious complications may be entitled to substantial compensation to settle IVC filter claims, and the amount of those damages will vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case. Therefore, such cases will not be litigated through one class representative.
To make sure that you, a friend or family member are properly protected, it is important to have experienced injury lawyers on your side. To learn more about what legal options may be available, contact Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. today for a free consultation.
