Video Ad:  As explained by +Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP attorney +Wendy Fleishman, lawsuits charge that many types of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are defective. These medical devices are implanted in tens of thousands of patients annually to stop blood clots from passing from the legs to the lungs.  However, retrievable IVC filters -- the type of IVC filter most patients receive - are intended only for short-term placement.  Lawsuits charge that defects in IVC filters make their prolonged presence in the body dangerous, making them more likely to fracture, migrate, tilt, or perforate the inferior vena cava (the main blood vessel that returns blood from the lower half of the body to the heart.).

Deadly #superbug outbreaks at hospitals nationwide linked to a specialized type of medical scope continue to climb, USA Today reports, but no one knows how often the infections occur — or where. Even when infections are confirmed as scope-related, they sometimes go unreported because hospitals and health departments do not always alert federal authorities. 

In the article, USA Today noted that Carla Warner's husband Bill (in the photo below) died in 2013 from the #CRE superbug following an endoscopic procedure at a North Carolina hospital. Ms. Warner told an FDA advisory panel that Bill fought CRE for eight months after the procedure. She recounted his 60-pound weight loss and the torture of watching his excruciating pain. Lieff Cabraser represents Ms. Warner.

In response to sexist comments about an ad campaign in San Francisco that included a female engineer, at the invitation of the woman featured in the ad, women and people of color in the tech industry have taken to social media to post their photos with the hashtag ‪ #iLookLikeAnEngineer to collectively redefine for society “what an engineer should look like.”

Lieff Cabraser's nationally-recognized employment lawyers work hand in hand with courageous women who step forward to press their companies to comply with the law and ensure equal opportunity for their female colleagues.
