New York, New York (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
GranuFlo lawsuits (http://www.granuflolawsuit2014.com/) filed on behalf of dialysis patients who were allegedly harmed by products included in the 2012 GranuFlo and NaturaLyte recall continue to mount in state and federal courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to The Glasgow Daily Times, 11 new claims were recently filed in Kentucky’s Barren Circuit Court on behalf of individuals who suffered fatal cardiovascular events that were allegedly caused by the administration of GranuFlo or NaturaLyte during dialysis treatments. Like thousands of other GranuFlo and NaturaLyte claims pending in U.S. courts, these cases assert claims of negligence, breaches of warranty, fraud, and violation of consumer protection laws. The complaints also seek loss of consortium for spouses and family members of the deceased, as well as wrongful death.*
“Our Firm is representing numerous GranuFlo lawsuit plaintiffs who have put forth similar claims against Fresenius Medical Care. We are closely monitoring the growing litigation surrounding this matter,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free GranuFlo lawsuit evaluations to dialysis patients who allegedly suffered cardiac arrest, heart attacks, stroke, sudden cardiac death or other side effects within 72 hours of a dialysis treatment involving the use of GranuFlo or NaturaLyte dialysis drugs.
GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Recall Litigation
GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are both dialysis concentrates that are used during treatments to remove toxins from patients’ blood. In March 2012, Fresenius Medical Care issued an Urgent Product Notification for both concentrates that warned of dosage issues that could put patients at risk for serious and potentially life-threatening heart side effects. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) ultimately granted Class I recall status to the Urgent Product Notification, which indicates that a medical product poses a risk of serious injury or death.
Since the announcement of the GranuFlo recall, court records indicate that thousands of lawsuits have been filed across the country on behalf of individuals who allegedly suffered heart attacks, strokes, and other serious cardiovascular events due to the administration of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. This includes more than 2,220 cases that are now pending in a federal multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts, where Bernstein Liebhard LLP is currently filing claims. (In re Fresenius GranuFlo/Naturalyte Dialysate Litigation, MDL No. 2428) Additional GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Lawsuits have also been consolidated on the state level in Massachusetts’ Middlesex County Superior Court, where more than 3,900 claims have been filed. (In re: Consolidated Fresenius Cases, No. MICV2013-03400-O).
Dialysis patients who experienced life-threatening cardiovascular events that were allegedly caused by GranuFlo or NaturaLyte may be entitled to join this growing litigation.
