Louisville, KY GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Lawsuit Lawyer

Coping with kidney failure is serious and patients who receive treatment not only have much courage, but also strength. Nevertheless, when faced with the debilitating side effects of a defective drug used to treat kidney problems, the challenges that result may be difficult to overcome alone. If you or a loved one has been severely injured due to a defective drug like GranuFlo, please contact Thomas Law Offices at (502) 473-6540 to learn more about your legal options and rights. With the help of a Louisville, KY GranuFlo and NaturaLyte lawsuit lawyer, you may be compensated for your medical expenses.

Risk Factors

GranuFlo is a medical drug for hemodialysis treatment, which is a common method used to treat kidney failure. NaturaLyte is a dry acid concentrate that becomes a component of dialysate, used to help neutralize acid build up in the blood stream.

During dialysis, GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are diluted with purified water and combined with sodium bicarbonate to filter the patient’s blood. If components of dialysate are combined incorrectly, this can pose a high risk of metabolic alkalosis for the patient. This can lead to the following side effects associated with GranuFlo:

  • Low Blood Pressure
  • Hypokalemia
  • Cardiac Arrhythmia
  • Stroke
  • Cardiopulmonary Arrest
  • Death

Compensation for Losses

On March 29, 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent an urgent Class I recall to all clinics and customers for the GranuFlo Acid Concentrate, after discovering that Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) knew of the common side effects from GranuFlo, but neglected to inform, patients, doctors, or the FDA. Class I recalls are often associated with products that can cause serious health consequences or death. If you have experienced any of the serious side effects of GranuFlo, you may be compensated for the following:

  • Medical Expenses – Any surgery, doctor visits, reoccurring pain, and any additional medical expenses associated with the risks of GranuFlo may be documented for reimbursement.
  • Pain and Suffering – Being a victim of a defective drug has multiple repercussions, including pain and suffering and/or depression.
  • Lost Wages – Undergoing injuries from a drug flaw can leave you unable to return to work immediately, especially if frequent pain is experienced.
  • Wrongful Death – If you have lost a loved one from being exposed to GranuFlo during dialysis treatment, no amount of money can replace the pain you feel; however, you can be compensated for funeral and burial expenses, emotional distress, and loss of consortium.
Don't wait. We're ready to fight.
