San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 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 Recall lawsuit.
According to court documents, on June 14, a woman filed a class action lawsuit in the Court of Common Pleas for Philadelphia County (case no. 130601961) alleging that her husband’s use of Granuflo led to his death. 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. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that Fresenius shielded the connection between Granuflo and heart attacks from patients and other interested parties.
Court data updated on May 14, by the US Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation (MDL), indicate that there are 161 actions pending in the Granuflo/Naturalyte MDL (MDL 2428, U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts). 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 March 6, a man filed a class action lawsuit in Colorado District Court (case no. 1:2013cv00573) alleging that his wife suffered cardiac arrest and died following use of Granuflo at DaVita Dialysis Center.
