Those with a loved one who has suffered a heart attack or death during or after GranuFlo dialysis treatment—should consult with a GranuFlo lawyer.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
McEwen Law Firm Ltd. reports a steady rise in GranuFlo lawsuit* inquiries from patients or relatives of dialysis patients who have suffered cardiac arrest, heart attacks, sudden cardiac death or other catastrophic health problems while being treated with the widely used dialysis product GranuFlo.
Marketed by the European company Fresenius Medical Care, GranuFlo is a chemical compound utilized in dialysis clinics worldwide, according to a New York Times article dated June 14, 2012. The article also discusses the liability issues now being raised.
GranuFlo attorney Greg McEwen of McEwen Law Firm Ltd. alleges that negligence and improper use of the product exposed patients to heightened risk of developing metabolic alkalosis. The condition is associated with low blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmia, heart attack, cardiac arrest, and other cardiovascular problems, he notes.
“Anyone who’s used GranuFlo for dialysis treatments should discuss the risks of bicarbonate overdosing with their doctor,” says McEwen. “Those with a loved one who has suffered a heart attack or death during or after GranuFlo dialysis treatment—should consult with a GranuFlo lawyer to see if compensation from the manufacturer is possible.”
The law firm’s website points out that an initial consultation is free, and can help determine eligibility to take part in the GranuFlo lawsuit.
