When asked about the Newsweek award, Mr. Worley had this to say; "It is an amazing honor to be named one of the top trial lawyers in the U.S. by such a prestigious publication, though what we should really be celebrating is the courage our clients. They've stood up and taken action, they raised their hand in the fight for justice and are helping to reduce the likelihood such injuries occur to others."
A current focus of the legal team is to fight for the loved ones or individuals who have suffered a heart attack that may have been caused by dialysis treatment. The safety issues surrounding the dialysis concentrates GranuFlo and Naturalyte, have come under scrutiny following a March 2012, the dialysis mixture FDA recall of the bicarbonate mixtures used during treatment, citing possible links to an increased risk for cardiovascular problems, heart attacks and death.
According to the firm, dialysis patients should be aware that these two acid concentrates may result in the following dangerous side effects:
- Low blood pressure (hypotension)
- Heart attack or myocardial infarction
- Heart Problems
- Cardiopulmonary arrest
- Metabolic alkalosis
Generally considered safe, still it was understood by the medical community the existence of dialysis treatment risks. In the case of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, doctors and nurses may not properly have been informed of the correct dosing protocol associated with the products. This has led to the recall of both products, investigations by the FDA, and compensation lawsuits from victims.
"The alleged negligence of the manufacturer of these dialysis concentrates put thousands of lives at risk, and others were not so lucky. We offer our clients justice, their voices, the impact on their lives and those of the families will be heard," added Ms. Eddington, ICU nurse turned attorney with the firm.
