GranuFlo recall in March 2012 came too late for those who suffered heart attacks or other injuries due to the use of GranuFlo in dialysis procedures.
I’ve joined with several other law firms experienced in handling complex mass torts to begin a Dialysis Lawsuit project. Thousands of people suffered heart attacks and other injuries before the maker of GranuFlo, Fresenius Medical Care, recalled the defective dialysis drug. Our legal team’s first GranuFlo lawsuit website is Dialysis=Lawsuits.org. We hope to file a number of Fresenius Medical Care lawsuits.
Fresenius Medical Care is a global corporation headquartered in Germany. It is also the largest provider of outpatient kidney dialysis in North America. The Fresenius-owned dialysis center in Bessemer, AL was closed for a period of time beginning in May 2013 due to the deaths of two patients, and the hospitalization of several more. The regulatory authorities found several violations of regulations at the Fresenius clinic, although it did not conclude that the violations caused the deaths or hospitalizations. The regulators provided Fresenius with a plan which Fresenius was required to comply with before re-opening the dialysis center.
The closing of the Bessemer, AL Fresenius Medical Care outpatient dialysis center raised eyebrows among lawyers involved in the GranuFlo litigation. Fresenius had been warned March 5, 2013 about making adulterated medical devices at its plant that manufactures dialyzers (a medical device used in dialysis). It doesn’t seem unreasonable to wonder if Fresenius is an out-of-control company, g iven the Fresenius recall of GranuFlo after GranuFlo side-effects injured and killed thousands of people, the FDA’s warning to Fresenius in March, and the closing of Fresenius’ Bessemer, AL dialysis center in May, 2013.
