Washington IVC Filter Lawyer
Craig Swapp is an IVC filter lawyer in WA and can help if you have suffered injury due to a faulty medical device. If you have been at risk for developing blood clots, you may be familiar with the IVC filter. This has been a common medical device used to stop their movement, ideally keeping blood clots out of the lungs. The challenge is that the filter has been fracturing or breaking and either all or part of it has been migrating toward the heart and lungs, causing even greater issues. The device itself is small and looks like a cage. However, while small in nature, it can be both incredibly helpful and incredibly dangerous, depending on whether or not you have any side effects.
Warning From the FDA
The FDA is responsible for issuing warnings and recalls related to products. They have issued a recommendation for IVC filters that involves having physicians remove them as soon as the immediate risk of a pulmonary embolism is no more.

Filing a Lawsuit

Determining the Value of Your Claim
When trying to determine how much money you could get, call our office and schedule a consultation. This can be highly subjective because no one really knows what a jury will do. However, there are certain ways to value an injury claim. To begin, we will review all your doctor’s bills. You were likely charged to have the device put in and then charged to have it monitored or reviewed. If you suffered additional physical harm, that should be noted as well. Additionally, we will look at any time you missed from lost work and wages. One aspect of our job is to put a financial value on the life changes required to make up for what happened to you. This takes time and experience, and we will certainly apply both to your case.
