The Attorneys at Marc J. Bern & Partners LLP are currently investigating potential claims and lawsuits against the New Jersey based medical device giant C.R. Bard for their faulty G2 series IVC filters.
Instead of recalling the G2 filter or the G2 Express, C.R. Bard ultimately kept them on the market until 2010 – that’s five years, selling more than 160,000 of the faulty devices.
The G2 series filters are now linked to at least 12 deaths and hundreds of reported problems according to the medical device manufacturer and FDA records.
Medical Device Implanted in Thousands to Stop Blood Clots
The G2 filter is implanted in the largest vein in the body, the inferior vena cava (IVC). The device is spider-shaped and was originally designed to prevent fatalities by stopping the blood clots from moving to the heart and lungs.
