The serious and even fatal side effects of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte have resulted in legal action against Fresenius Medical Care, the company that manufactures and distributes these popular dialysis medications. Initial lawsuits found that Fresenius had distributed internal memos about the dangers of these medications, yet continued to make, distribute, and personally administer the drugs.
Beginning in March of 2013, additional pharmaceutical injury lawsuits began being filed against DaVita Healthcare Partners, Inc. where GranuFlo and NaturaLyte have continued to be administered. At least two of these suits involve wrongful death brought about by cardiac arrest following a dialysis session in which GranuFlo or NaturaLyte were used.
Protecting Your Rights
Pharmaceutical companies and, in many cases, those that distribute their products have a duty to ensure their medications are safe and effective. When a product is known to cause harm and a company does nothing to protect consumers, they have placed profit over human health and must be held accountable for their actions. Your pharmaceutical injury attorney can hold these negligent parties accountable and fight for the justice you are due.
