All the actions in the MDL involve similar allegations that plaintiffs suffered injury or death caused by the use of GranuFlo and/or NaturaLyte during hemodialysis
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and it is now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Granuflo lawsuits and potential Granuflo Class Action lawsuit.
A Case Management Order issued on October 1, by a US Judge, describes the details for the exchange of information during the discovery phase of the Granuflo Multidistrict Litigation (No 2428, US District Court, District of Massachusetts). Granuflo, manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care, is an additive used in kidney dialysis to help patients maintain their bicarbonate levels which neutralize the acid buildup in the bloodstream during dialysis. According to the document, the process of selecting early test cases is scheduled to begin on January 16, 2014.
Court data, updated on September 11, by the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL), indicate that there are 229 actions now pending in the Granuflo MDL. All the actions in the MDL involve similar allegations that plaintiffs suffered injury or death caused by the use of GranuFlo and/or NaturaLyte during hemodialysis, which allegedly may cause metabolic alkalosis in patients resulting in low blood pressure, hypokalemia, hypoxemia, hypercapnia, cardiac arrhythmia, or cardiopulmonary arrest.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Granuflo severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Granuflo lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
On August 27, a man filed a lawsuit in Massachusetts District Court (case no. 1:2013cv12097) alleging that his wife suffered cardiac arrest from Granuflo and died.
