Lawsuits Increase Against GranuFlo and Naturalyte

Posted on in FDA

Two products extremely popular for use in dialysis treatments, NaturaLyte and GranuFlo, were created by Fresenius Medical Care Holdings. These products have been named in numerous lawsuits recently, since there are side effects that can lead to serious medical problems and conditions for patients getting dialysis treatment. If you have been the victim of a defective medical device or medical malpractice, you need to speak with a personal injury attorney.

Unfortunately, many lives around the country are destroyed by the mistakes made in medicine. The outcome of a defective medical device complication may impact the life of the patient and his or her loved ones for the remainder of the patient's life.

Plaintiffs in the cases have alleged that the company failed to label and warn patients about the implications of the products. Some of the reported issues included strokes, heart attacks, sudden cardiac deaths, and cardio-pulmonary arrest. Patients seeking assistance with dialysis may have seen an improvement in their original conditions only to suffer from serious side effects of NaturaLyte and GranuFlo.

For plaintiffs like Phillip Ray Harris of West Virginia, any resolution is too little, too late. Harris' wife, Shirley, passed away as a result of the dialysis complications, a problem that Harris alleges is the responsibility of the owner company. For Harris, the major concern is that the company failed to educate physicians and healthcare facilities about going through with these particular dialysis treatments, arguing that more people will continue to suffer and die as a result of Fresenius' negligence.

Don't let time slip away from you. If you or someone you love has suffered as a result of a faulty medical device, you need to reach out to the offices of an experienced Illinois personal injury attorney. No patient should have to suffer because of a problematic device, and you deserve to have your story told in court.
