Our law firm recently filed a product liability lawsuit against C.R. Bard, which claims that one of the company’s IVC (inferior vena cava, is a major vein that runs the length of the body from the heart down to the leg) filters failed. The Bard IVC filter has cut into the walls of the woman’s vena cava and it cannot be removed without major invasive surgery.
Robin Arnold and her husband, Felix, filed her case in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. They filed claims against Bard for negligence, failure to warn, design defects, manufacturing defects, breach of implied warranty, negligent misrepresentation and loss of consortium.
