IVC Filter Lawyers Advise – Bard IVC Filter Lawsuits Consolidated
Bard IVC Filter lawsuits have been transferred to a federal court in Arizona.

IVC Filter MDL
A transfer order filed Monday, in the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), resulted in all present and future federal product liability lawsuits against inferior vena cava filter (IVC filter) manufacturers, C.R. Bard, Inc. and Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc. (BPV), to be centralized in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the District of Arizona.
What Are IVC Filters?
IVC filters are surgical implants that catch blood clots before they travel to the lungs to avoid causing a pulmonary embolism. The Bard IVC Filter devices are fracturing, tilting, migrating, or puncturing the vena cava.
FDA Vena Cava Filter Warnings
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a safety warning in 2010, citing that more than 900 IVC Filter adverse event reports were filed over five years
A study published in the April 2013 edition of Jama Internal Medicine, found that less than 10% of retrievable IVC filters surveyed were successfully removed. They also reported that 8% of persons surveyed still suffered venous thrombotic events while the IVC filter was in place.
In 2014, the FDA issued an updated warning to doctors recommending that IVC filters be removed within one to two months once the need for the filter has passed. They noted that doctors may not have previously been made aware of the urgency surrounding retrieval of the device.

Benicar Gastrointestinal Injury Lawyers
Filing Benicar Intestinal Injury Lawsuits
What Is Benicar?
Benicar is a high blood pressure medication. Benicor has been linked to severe intestinal injury, intestinal damage, chronic diarrhea, malnourishment and severe weight loss. Seniors are the largest population receiving prescriptions for Benicar and are the most vulnerable to sever injury from Benicar.
FDA Benicar Warnings
The FDA has warned patients and doctors that Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) may cause a severe gastrointestinal (GI) problem called Villous Atrophy. Benicar causes the intestines to lose the texture and makes it difficult to absorb nutrients. This leads to malnutrition which and other digestive problems. This is very dangerous for seniors and can lead to death or hospitalization because of dehydration, chronic diarrhea and malnutrition. Villous Atrophy can result in limiting the ability of the small intestines to absorb nutrients from food. At the most serious stages, villous atrophy causes damage to the intestinal crypts, which is the intestinal lining that surround the villi.
Benicar Villous Atrophy Lawyers Filing Benicar Lawsuits
Benicar has been used by millions of people. Benicar warnings did not adequately disclose how serious the side effects form this medication is.
The Benicar lawyers at Class Action Lawyer Network are filing claims for individuals who have experienced chronic diarrhea, sprue-like enteropathy or villous atrophy after using Benicar.
Hemorrhages Caused by Xarelto
Xarelto Lawyers Filing Extensive Bleeding Lawsuits
Our Xarelto lawyers are accepting Xarelto lawsuits for hemorrhage caused by Xarelto. Nationwide Xarelto attorneys are reviewing cases of excessive bleeding from Xarelto. In a recent Xareleto lawsuit a widow from Missouri has filed an Xarelto claim against Johnson & Johnson, Janssen Research & Development, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, et al. to demand that the defendants be held liable for the death of her husband. Dixie A. Smith, surviving spouse of Jay Christopher Smith, filed the complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, where it joins similar lawsuits pending in multidistrict litigation (MDL) No. 2592 before Judge Fallon.
The plaintiff contends that had her late husband never taken the defendants’ medication, Xarelto, he would not have suffered a deadly intracerebral hemorrhage. Ms. Smith is suing for compensatory damages for past, present, and future economic expenditures incurred as a result of the decedent’s use of Xarelto, including medical and funeral expenses, loss of earnings, loss of companionship and support, and loss of the prospective net accumulations of an estate.
Xarelto Caused A Brain Hemorrhage
The decedent’s physician prescribed Xarelto (rivaroxaban) during December of 2012. He continued to take the medication as prescribed until May of 2013. On May 4, the decedent was admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), at which point the hospital staff discontinued his use of Xarelto. He was transferred to the care of a specialty hospital unit on May 18 and on May 22 he died of the intracerebral hemorrhage.
According to Ms. Smith’s Xarelto lawsuit, her late husband’s passing was a direct result of his use of rivaroxaban, which he reportedly never would have taken had he been fully informed of the risks. Xarelto is an anticoagulant or blood thinner that is prescribed for the treatment and prevention of blood clots. The medication is intended to reduce the risk of life-threatening complications caused by blood clots, including pulmonary embolism and stroke.
The product liability lawsuit regarding Xarelto draws attention to several reviews and clinical studies of the drug, including a 2012 report issued by The Institute for Safe Medication Practices. This report stated that there had been “356 reports of serious, disabling, or fatal injury in which rivaroxaban was the primary suspect drug. The report more than doubled from the previous quarter total of 128 cases.”
The organization brought these statistics to the attention of the defendants, who reportedly advised The Institute for Safe Medication Practices that the data did not reflect any safety issues that required action. Ms. Smith’s Xarelto lawsuit alleges that the defendants prioritized profit over patient safety.
Her complaint further claims that the defendants concealed their knowledge of the severe and life-threatening complications of Xarelto from consumers and the medical community. The lawsuit notes that the pharmaceutical giants failed to highlight the risks of uncontrollable bleeding events, nor did they provide medical protocols for stabilizing patients suffering from these bleeding events.
Xarelto had been marketed as a replacement for an older blood thinner, warfarin (Coumadin). Warfarin has been used for years for patients who may be at a higher risk of blood clots. However, patients taking warfarin required regular medical monitoring and dietary restrictions, which Xarelto had promised to eliminate.
Our Xarelto lawyers have been reviewing claims for excessive bleeding like these. Xarelto lawsuits are now consolidated in an MDL because many people have suffered injuries of a same type from Xarelto. Speak to an Xarelto lawyer today.
