IVC Filter Alert

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are devices used to prevent blood clots from traveling to the lungs. They are implanted into the veins of patients who can’t take anticoagulants. The filters capture clots in the bloodstream and dissolve them before they can move to the lungs.

More recent IVC filters are designed to be retrievable, and can be removed from the body once the risk of blood clot is gone. However, because of insufficient manufacturer warnings, the filters are often kept in the body much longer than necessary, increasing the risk of serious complications or injury.

Since IVC filters arrived on the market, the FDA has received hundreds of complaints of complications, including:

  • device migration
  • heart/lung perforation
  • perforation or puncture of tissue or other organs
  • cardiac tamponade

Five filters in particular are now at the center of many lawsuits:

  • Bard Recovery Filter
  • Bard G2 Filter
  • Bard G2 Express Filter
  • Cook Gunther Tulip Filter
  • Cook Celect Filter

These lawsuits claim poor design, manufacturing, and failure to warn of risks.

Law Offices of Gary Green is accepting IVC filter cases involving the aforementioned filters. Call us toll-free at 1-888-4GARYGREEN or email ggreen@gGreen.com.

Every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning in the U.S. In 2014, among children 1 to 4 years old who died from an unintentional injury, one-third died from drowning. Among those aged 1-14, fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death behind motor vehicle crashes.


Even when a lifeguard is present, it’s recommended to designate a responsible adult to watch over children whenever they are in or around a body of water.


According to the American Red Cross, the key to preventing home pool drownings is having layers of protection. This includes placing barriers around your pool to prevent access and closely supervising your child and being prepared in case of an emergency. A comprehensive study from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found that most children involved in submersion or drowning accidents were being supervised by one or both parents at the time of the incident. 75% had been missing or out of sight for 5 minutes or less, and 69% of these incidents took place when the children were not expected to be in the pool area.


When diving, keep in mind that the shallower the water, the greater the risk for injury. Only 4.8% of all diving injuries occur when the water is at least 8 feet deep, according to the Review of Spinal Cord Injury Statistics Related to Diving & Diving Board Use. Shallow dives cripple.


Diving should be prohibited from any object not specifically designed for diving such as chairs, fences, or balconies.


Dive only in designated diving areas. Be sure of water depth and that the water is free from obstructions. Never dive into cloudy or murky water.



A happy and safe summer to all from Law Offices of Gary Green!

Mitsubishi Emissions Scandal

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has admitted to intentionally falsifying fuel mileage data to make mileage appear better than it actually is.


The affected models are the Mitsubishi ek Wagon and ek Space and the Nissan Dayz and Dayz Roox. It is still unclear whether the scandal will spread to cars tested and sold outside of Japan:


“Based on what we know so far, Mitsubishi’s issues are focused on about 600,000 cars sold in the Japanese market. However, there is a possibility that the affair may spread outside Japan, as a similar car-testing method was used in the US, and Mitsubishi will look into vehicles sold in other markets as well. When the VW scandal broke on September 18 last year it was initially confined to about 500,000 cars in the US that were fitted with defeat devices. But the number soon climbed to some 11 million vehicles worldwide…”

Legal Quotation of the Day

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

From our Famous Quotes in the Law page, here’s another one of our favorites:

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

– Robert F. Kennedy (1925-1968), U.S. Attorney General and Senator
