All the cases 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) January 06, 2014
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 new lawsuit was filed on December 16, by a widow in Massachusetts District Court (case no. 1:2013cv13173) alleging that her husband suffered heart attack from Granuflo and died. 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.
Court data, updated on December 16, by the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL), indicate that there are 433 cases now pending in the Granuflo MDL. All the cases 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 cases of severe complications, allegedly from Granuflo. 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.”
Another lawsuit was filed on November 26, by an Illinois widow in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2013cv07162) alleging that Granuflo caused her husband's premature death. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that her husband died shortly after a kidney dialysis treatment where he received Granuflo.
