Opelousas, LA (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
The law firm of Morrow, Morrow, Ryan & Bassett is offering free legal consultations to individuals who have allegedly developed peritonitis as a result of using the Liberty Cycler home dialysis machine.
According to multiple reports, including the most recent Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recalls recall on November 5, 2013, and documentation from the device’s manufacturer, the Liberty Cycler is prone to overfilling and leaking. Units with leaks are known to contaminate dialysate, which could result in an infection called peritonitis.
Peritonitis is a serious, potentially deadly inflammation of the thin tissue that lines the abdomen and covers internal organs. Initial symptoms can include abdominal pain and tenderness, which can be exacerbated by actions as simple as coughing. Peritonitis poses a significant threat to individuals with compromised health conditions, such as diabetes and kidney disease, but can likewise impact otherwise healthy individuals if untreated.
According to Morrow, Morrow, Ryan & Bassett, persons who have suffered from peritonitis as a result of using the Liberty Cycler home dialysis machine could be eligible for substantial compensation. Individuals or those with loved ones who have been impacted are encouraged to contact Morrow, Morrow, Ryan & Basset at 1-800-356-6776 as soon as possible for a free consultation.
