      See what our past clients have to say about us.

      Everyone there was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. My car was totaled, and I was a little intimidated talking with a couple of other lawyers in Greenville. But with Christian and Christian, not only did they answer my questions, but they did so in a way that made what could have been a hectic situation, easy. Overall, an excellent experience with high quality lawyers who truly go above and beyond and really try to get you the results or answers you need.

      I met Josh like 4 years ago when my Son was injured at Daycare. He was very concerned about the well being of my Child and Me. Very Understanding Professional and Just a great Staff. If You need a Lawyer that’s all about YOU this is the Place. I just closed a Case on 6/23/2021 from a injury on a Property. They handled everything because no one else would help Me. I’m forever grateful for Your hard Work and Time. Once again Thank You Josh and Sally.

      My husband was referred to this law firm from another lawyer after his mother passed away while residing in a nursing home. Matt took on his case and we are pleased with how everything turned out. It took a long, long time to finally settle, but it was worth the wait. The staff here is friendly and I’d be happy to recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance.

      I was referred to Harold by a family friend, and I couldn’t be happier. He took the time to listen to my case, answered all my questions and truly treated me like a friend not a client. His knowledge of medical malpractice is priceless he actually successfully won, one of the first medical malpractice cases in Greenville County.

      South Carolina IVC Filters Attorneys

      Put Nearly 100 Years of Combined Experience on Your Side

      IVC (inferior vena cava) filters are small wire devices which vaguely resemble a spider. These devices are temporarily placed in the inferior vena cava, which is a large vein which carries blood from the lower body up to the heart, and are designed to keep blood clots from entering the lungs and causing a pulmonary embolism. They are a common alternative to medication for patients who cannot take blood thinners, and are implanted into roughly 250,000 patients each year.

      Unfortunately, these devices can cause a number of serious and potentially fatal conditions. The most commonly used models include the Bard Recover G2 IVC filter, as well as the Celect and Gunther Tulip IVC filters from Cook Medical. If you or someone you love has been injured by one of these filters, call our firm to pursue justice.

      If you have required surgery to remove an IVC filter, contact our South Carolina IVC filters attorneys to fight to get you compensation.

      What Dangerous Conditions Can IVC Filters Cause?

      Embolization is one of the most dangerous conditions these devices can cause. This is when a piece of the piece of the filter breaks off and travels to the heart. This can cause a number of extremely dangerous and potentially fatal conditions, including perforation of the heart, internal bleeding, heart attack, and arrhythmia.

      Symptoms of embolization include:
      • Shortness of breath or other breathing difficulties
      • Blood in saliva/mucus
      • Sudden and severe cough or coughing fits
      • Dizziness, lightheadedness, and fainting
      • Sudden, sharp pain in the chest or back
      Perforation occurs when the IVC filter, or a broken piece of it, pierces the inferior vena cava. This can lead to severe internal bleeding, a life threatening condition which can require emergency medical attention. Oftentimes, there are minor symptoms, or no symptoms at all.

      However, perforation may have occurred if you experience:

      • Weakness, fatigue or lightheadedness
      • Shortness of breath
      • Unusual dehydration or thirst
      • Blurred vision
      • Nausea

      A migration or shift in the position of the filter is extremely dangerous. This can lead to both embolization and perforation of critical internal blood vessels and organs. For this reason, the symptoms of either embolization or perforation can indicate a migration of the IVC filter.
