GranuFlo lawsuit – Many may unkowingly have a valuable GranuFlo lawsuit

Fresenius Medical Care, maker of the dialysis drug GranuFlo, gives dialysis to 167,000 people in the U.S. But only 201 have filed a GranuFlo lawsuit.

Our work on dialysis lawsuits has led me to a recent suspicion: I believe there are probably hundreds, if not thousands, of people who could collect a large cash award in a GranuFlo lawsuit, but they simply don’t know they qualify. But we’ll help you find out free-of-charge if you fill out our free GranuFlo Lawsuit Case Review Form

What is GranuFlo?

GranuFlo was a drug that was used by Fresenius Medical Care and other companies during the process of dialysis. It seems unlikely that most dialysis patients knew the name of the drugs that were used during dialysis.

GranuFlo was recalled March 29, 2012 in a FDA Class I recall.

Class I recalls are the most serious type of recall; it means that patients are likely to suffer serious injuries or death if the drug is not recalled.

Fresenius Medical Care, maker of GranuFlo, has 167,000 dialysis patients.

Fresenius Medical Care, in a press release, said it has more than 167,000 dialysis patients in the U.S. It’s almost certain that the dialysis drug manufactured by Fresenius was used on all its dialysis patients. Additionally, GranuFlo was sold to other dialysis providers. So there were at least 167,000, and perhaps many more, patients who had dialysis using the drug GranuFlo.

Only 201 GranuFlo lawsuits have been filed in the federal MDL GranuFlo litigation

If at least 167,000 dialysis patients were exposed to a drug that the FDA recalled because it could cause serious injury or death, simple logic suggests that there are many more people who suffered heart problems or death due to GranuFlo. The most reasonable explanation for the small number of GranuFlo lawsuits seems (to me) to be this: the dialysis patients simply didn’t know their injuries or death were caused by GranuFlo.

BP Settlement is tip of iceberg | Gulf oil spill cover-ups widespread

BP Settlement is intended to bolster BP’s public relations, but the BP oil spill is not an isolated case, says whistleblower

4-30-2013

British Petroleum dumps oil on America’s Gulf Coast.

Kudos to reporter David Hammer of WWL TV in New Orleans. Hammer has just published an article exposing widespread cover-ups of Gulf oil spills. Hammer’s article begins:

It was something of an eye-opener when an oil company pleaded guilty to two environmental crimes in January.  Not because the pollution reported was anything on the scale of the BP spill, but because of the brazen cover-up involved.”

The company, Houston-based W&T Offshore, admitted its workers had used coffee filters in October 2009 to clean oil and other minerals out of the water byproduct discharged overboard from their platform in the Ewing Banks 910 lease block, about 65 miles south of Port Fourchon.

They were filtering the oil out of the water samples that were sent into a lab and recorded with the federal government.

Meanwhile, the water they were dumping back into the Gulf on a constant basis stayed contaminated.

W&T also pleaded guilty to spilling oil into the Gulf of Mexico in November 2009 and not reporting it to authorities, as required by law. The company agreed to pay $1 million in fines and community service for their crimes.

I (attorney Michael J. Evans, publisher of this blog) set up a blog entitled BPOilNews.com the week after the Deepwater Horizon explosion in April 2010. During the course of the spill, particularly during the early days, I hired a journalist and dispatched a videographer to take video to document the damage caused by BP. I’m not the only one to document BP’s coverup, Mother Jones and Pro Publica were both very aggressive in covering the story of the BP oil spill and the BP cover-up.

BPOilNews.com sent a videographer to document the damage, but sheriff’s deputies acting at the direction of BP employees blocked his access. And it wasn’t just our blog, BPOilnNews.com, that documented the cover-up. Others reported the cover-up, ad BPOilNews.com reported on the cover-up (see Oil spill pictures suggest a cover-up on Grande Isle – sand being used to cover up the oil, published July 2, 2010 on BPOilNews.com. Our reporting about BP and the government’s violations of the public’s First Amendment rights was mentioned in a law review article by the Environmental Law Institute.

Alabama businesses deserve every penny they can collect from the BP Settlement

So if any of you think BP deserves a break when it comes to Alabama businesses filing claims in the BP settlement, please think again. BP has lied from May 2010 until the last time a BP official opened his mouth. BP does not deserve your pity; it should be held fully accountable for ALL economic damage it may have caused ANYWHERE in the State of Alabama.

BP’s most recent court filings have been multiple, repetitive motions asking the settlement judge to order the Settlement Administrator to quit paying “absurd claims” such as a $9.7 million dollar claim by a North Alabama paving contractor. BP has even filed a separate lawsuit against the BP Settlement Admiistrator, and has asked the appellate court to halt the payments and accelerate the appeal.

BP Settlement News Website Launched

Can Big Oil Avoid Its Responsibility to Make the People and Businesses of the Gulf Coast States Whole After the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill? We hope not.

The BP settlement continues to generate controversy as BP tries every trick in the law books to avoid paying BP claims that it owes under the Deepwater Horizon settlement agreement.

I’m working with two experienced class action litigation firms to offer representation to those needing professional help filing BP claims. As part of our effort to make sure every class member with a valid BP claim actually finds out about it, we’ve launched BP Settlement News.

We already had one website at BP Settlement Help, but it wasn’t designed for frequent updates with news about the settlement. Both BP Settlement News and BP Settlement Help provide forms that allow people to obtain free legal evaluations of their potential BP claims.

I believe those who visit BP Settlement News tomorrow will find the articles interesting.
