Questionable Decisions Surround C.R. Bard Filters

Since 2010, IVC filters have dominated the news headlines after their effectiveness has been questioned when weighed against the risk of death or injury.

C.R. Bard, a major manufacturer of IVC filters, has been at the center of much of that news. After clinical trials revealed the risks associated with the Bard Recovery IVC filter, Kay Fuller, a regulatory specialist with C.R. Bard, declined to sign an FDA application for approval. That employee later resigned.

However, the application shows Fuller’s signature on that application, which she denies she ever signed. The signature is also different from her signature on other regulatory documents.

C.R. Bard officials state that any notion of forgeries on documents like these is untrue. However, the Recovery filter has since been taken off the market and replaced with other filters.

Records show that the Bard Recovery filter was associated with 27 deaths and hundreds of other complications.

Trial Date Set

C.R. Bard is currently facing a variety of lawsuits and litigation claiming that their filters are unsafe and are knowingly placed on the market in that condition. The first trials against Bard are set to go to trial in 2017.

If you or your loved one has experienced complications from these IVC filters, you may be eligible to file a Bard IVC filter lawsuit. Contact our office today to learn more about your options.
