There are allegations in IVC lawsuits that Bard knew about the dangerous side effects associated with IVC Filters.

In 2014 Bard was denied a motion for summary judgment over IVC filters. There court ruled that there was in fact evidence that Bard practice negligent actions. Bard tried to get summary judgment later in 2014, again getting denied. In this judgment a judge ruled that plaintiffs in IVC filter lawsuits and entitled to seek punitive damages in IVC lawsuits.
