Why is Bard the prime defendant in so many IVC-related lawsuits?
Bard has been the main culprit of selling defective products and even replacing them with other flawed products. In fact, early court proceedings uncovered the fact that the company was aware of the defects in their products yet continued to sell them to the detriment of victims.
The company’s lack of honest dealings, the variety of Bard filter types involved, the amount implanted, and damaging evidence has made Bard the face of IVC filter lawsuits. However, future development may see the focus of lawsuits shift to other manufacturers.
