Fresenius Medical Care, the Waltham, Massachusetts-based manufacturer of dialysis solutions GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, is now facing approximately 6,000 lawsuits alleging that patients suffered severe injuries and were not warned about the risks associated with the products. Plaintiffs in these lawsuits contend that GranuFlo causes a rapid and unsafe elevation of bicarbonate, which creates a 6 to 8 fold increased risk of cardiopulmonary arrest and death that is unique to GranuFlo.

With 2,127 actions pending in federal court, GranuFlo joins metal on metal hips, Actos and Yaz/Yasmin as one of the largest ongoing U.S. mass torts. As with these other dangerous products, the personal injury team at Andrus Wagstaff, PC, is evaluating GranuFlo/NaturaLyte injury and wrongful death claims from clients nationwide and determining whether they may qualify for lawsuit compensation.
