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.
Court documents, updated on August 15 by the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL), indicate that there are 201 actions now pending in the Granuflo MDL (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.
The initial Status Conference of the Granuflo MDL is scheduled for August 30. 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 July 2, a woman filed a lawsuit individually and on behalf of the estate of her deceased father in New York Eastern District Court (case no. 1:2013cv03723) alleging that her father's use of Granuflo and NaturaLyte led to this death. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that her father used Granuflo and NaturaLyte during his hemodialysis treatment from end 2011 to mid 2012; he suffered cardiac arrest in February 2012 and in July and died.
AttorneyOne.com has further information on Granuflo lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
