How Our Drug Injury Lawyers Can Help

In March 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the most serious type of recall – Class I – for GranuFlo Dry Acid Concentrate and NaturaLyte Liquid Acid concentrate dialysis treatment products made and sold by Massachusetts-based Fresenius Medical Care North America. A Class I recall is reserved for products that will cause serious adverse health consequences or death, according to the FDA.

Additionally, in June 2012, the New York Times published a stunning report, claiming that Fresenius had alerted its own physicians and medical directors in November 2011 that GranuFlo “appeared to be contributing to a sharp increase in the risk of patients dying suddenly from cardiac arrest.” However, Fresenius had failed to advise the public or the FDA about medical problems associated with GranuFlo or NaturaLyte until the FDA received a copy of the Fresenius memo and inquired about it in March 2012.

If you or a loved one is a kidney patient who was treated with either of these GranuFlo or NaturaLyte products, and you believe you have suffered injuries (including heart attacks) as a result of this treatment, you should contact an experienced defective medical products attorney right away.

We Provide Free Consultations for GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Injury Victims

When you contact the legal team of Cohen and Malad, LLP, we can provide a free consultation about your GranuFlo and / or NaturaLyte injury claim. Our Mass Torts division, headed by nationally recognized defective medical products attorney Gregory Laker, features a team of experienced lawyers, paralegals and medical professionals who can review your case.

We can review the facts of your case and develop a claim for legal relief that can pay for your medical expenses, rehabilitation, therapy, medication, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Our first step will be to intensely research and investigate the facts of your case, including determining whether the product contained a flaw in the way it was made and sold and how that flaw caused you or a loved one to suffer injury.

Our next step will be to litigate your case. Our firm has experience conducting complex civil litigation including large medical product companies. This experience includes litigating cases as class actions (several plaintiffs join in the same lawsuit) and multidistrict litigation (in which several plaintiffs with separate lawsuits have their cases consolidated for pretrial matters). We have fought for the rights of injured consumers in both state and federal courts.

Medical products companies have a duty to provide patients with products that are safe and effective when used as intended. When they fail to live up to this duty, they can be held liable based on theories that include:

  • Design defects
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Marketing defects (include the failure to provide adequate warnings and instructions)
  • Negligence
  • Breach of warranty

Our defective medical products attorneys will research every possible legal avenue to obtain relief for you and your family if you have been harmed by a GranuFlo or NaturaLyte dialysis product.
