Question:

How Long Will It Take To Settle Fresenius Lawsuits Over Granuflo and NaturaLyte Dialysis Treatments?

Answer:

Thousands of lawsuits are being pursued in courts nationwide on behalf of individuals who suffered a heart attack or cardiac arrest after dialysis treatment where certain Fresenius acid concentrates were used. However, the litigation remains at an early stage, with the first trial dates not expected to begin until early 2016. Therefore, it is likely to still be some time before the first settlements are reached for injuries caused by side effects of GranuFlo or NaturaLyte.

Although Fresenius knew or should have known for years that there is a substantial risk of cardiac arrest, heart attack or death during dialysis where GranuFlo or NaturaLyte were used, the first warnings were not provided to the public until May 2012.

Injury Lawyers

Find Out If A Fresenius Dialysis Settlement May Be Available

Free case evaluations are available to help determine if a cardiac arrest, heart attack or death following dialysis may be caused by Granuflo or Naturalyte.

REVIEW A CASE

In November 2011, the company issued an internal memo about the risk of problems with GranuFlo and Naturalyte, which convert to bicarbonate at a higher-than-expected level, requiring close monitoring of dialysis patient’s bicarbonate buffer prescriptions to reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems.

While this information was provided to the company’s own clinics, no such warnings were provided to other clinics until March 2012.

The FDA subsequently issued an alert to the medical community in May 2012, and classified Fresenius’ actions as a NaturaLyte and Granuflo recall.

The first Fresenius dialysis lawsuits were filed following these warnings, and the number of cases continues to increase, as more people realize that an injury or death suffered by a loved one during dialysis may have been caused by GranuFlo or Naturalyte.

Although Fresenius has not given any indication that they intend to settle NaturaLyte and GranuFlo lawsuits in the immediate future, our lawyers feel confident that following pretrial proceedings, and maybe after a series of “bellwether” trials, the company will begin to negotiate settlements. Otherwise, the company will face hundreds, and possible thousands, of individual trials in courts throughout the United States.

Amounts of Naturalyte, GranuFlo Settlements

At this stage in the Fresenius dialysis litigation, it is impossible to predict the amount that individuals or families may recovery for their Fresenius injury lawsuit or dialysis treatment wrongful death lawsuit.

Any negotiations to settle Fresenius lawsuits will be based on the individual circumstances of the case and what a jury is likely to award in damages.

If a lawsuit proceeds to trial, a jury will consider the nature of the claimed injury, the severity of the damage and the economic impact of the Fresenius injury. Some of the common factors that a jury may consider include:

  • The extent and duration of the injury suffered following use of GranuFlo or NaturaLyte during dialysis treatment;
  • The effect that the Fresenius dialysis injury had on the overall physical and mental health or well-being of the plaintiff;
  • The pain and mental anguish suffered in the past and which will likely be suffered in the future;
  • The amount of any past or future medical expenses caused by the injury or any funeral expenses related to a loved one who passed away due to GranuFlo or Naturalyte;
  • Any lost wages or loss of earning capacity.

FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY FOR A FRESENIUS SETTLEMENT

The dialysis treatment lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential claims for individuals and families throughout the United States who may be entitled to financial compensation or a settlement for any of the following injuries that may have been caused by GranuFlo or Naturalyte use in recent years:

  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Sudden Death

To review a potential case or determine if you, a friend or family member may be entitled to a Fresenius settlement, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.

    My mother passed due to complications after a 6 hr. treatment where she fainted when she returned home . This resulted in emergency surgery where she died. Fresenius was aware of the affects of this on my mother. We are a military family and my mother was a strong woman . She raise three children while my father was serving this county during multiple tours in Vietnam. She is greatly missed and did not deserve to die this way.

    My mother passed away within an hour after a treatment; she told her attendant she wasn’t feeling well, by the time he got back with a glass of water, she was in full cardiac arrest. March 2012, the month the FDA finally decided to pull the product off the market.

    My mother called us that her blood pressure was high during dialysis and that she was being taken to the hospital as a precaution. We arrived minutes later my mother had gone into cardiac arrest. She went into a coma and never came out of it . Prior to her having her heart attack, she had been to her cardiologist and was told her heart was fine. It’s a shame that we lost our mom in 2009 due to the negligence of these dialysis centers using these recalled solutions.

My life has not been the same since I lost my Mom. She has great grandchildren she should have been able to see. I am appalled they are still using granuflo.

    My husband passed away in 2008 suddenly the day after his dialysis treatment from a heart attack. He was 38 years young. He had no history of heart problems. My children lost their father and I was left to raise four small girls alone. People need to start asking questions about side effects and complications. Treat the whole person not just the renal disease. My prayers are with each of you that are facing heartache and death art the hands of pharmaceutical companies and negligence.

    My mom passed away in 2012 ,she was on dialysis for ten years.It hurts because during dialysis she pulled it out of her arm numerous times.Their solution was to bind her to the hospital bed in a comatose state and did the dialysis. My mom died after receiving a final dialysis on the way to a nursing home for recovery. My family has never been the same the last time all five children have been together was her funeral.This company has torn apart my family and our existance.They murdered while profitting off a dangerous drug.They should pay dearly.

    My mom died 12-24-2011 of a heart attack and a stroke while at dialysis. She had no heart issues ever. She started these treatments in June of 2011 and from that point her health went swiftly downhill. She suffered panic attacks and problems breathing during treatments and several times complete memory loss of even being at dialysis. I consider the pharmaceutical company murderers and the medical field guilty of stupidity for not seeing what people were going thru and questioning why.

This upcoming settlement will bring closure to my family as the company will finally acknowledge fault. With the recent updates online I was wondering if anyone here has received anything in the mail about an offer with a deadline to reply by July 2016?. I saw where the case is supposed to settle for $250M and divided by tiers,. Can anyone shed light on this?

    My Mom, died July 2004, she was a dialysis patient for 2 years; she was on the machine when she passed. The ironic thing about it is; they would bottom her out from time time. “Bottom out” is when they would take her off the machine too fast. Scary to say the least. She hated the process but understood it would keep her alive or did it. they become a shell of themselves, not wanting to do anything after the treatment; then on to the next which didn’t give them a quality of life.I Miss Her so Much!

    My dad was on dialysis for 6 years. He was given both granuflo and naturalyte during his dialysis treatments. He left behind 7 children and a wife (our mom) in 2012, after he went into the hospital to have a simple procedure done that had something to do with him being a dialysis patient, but went into cardiac arrest during the surgery. As a result, he passed away the following day. Six months prior to his untimely death, he suffered from a stroke. Though no amount of money will ease the pain and suffering that my family has endured everyday since his death, I think Fresenius should be held liable for such horrible negligence and pay not just my family, but all families that has been affected by this matter. $250,000,000 is definitely not a reasonable amount to offer the love ones of the victims. Therefore, my family and I will definitely NOT agree to such a ridiculous offer. May God bless each and every one of us to get the justice we deserve.

    I understand all of your frustrations and pain, I also have lost someone while they were on dialysis but for those of you whose parents who were on dialysis for “10 years” you maybe real disapointed when you discover that this horrible medicie probably wasnt the cause of their death or injury. This type of med don’t usually get administered for 10 years before it does harm.
    Also for the ladies who lost her mom at 45 and she had to step up to the plate, and be the “Head” of the family, that’s the natural progression of life. As bad as it is to lose a parent , I know I lost my mother at 1 one, dad at 25. But more importantly I lost my husband he was 43 and the main provider of our family he had a wife and four young children ff you lose your houses and your cars because you lost a parent as an adult why should anybody responsible for that but you!! Not that they should not be held responsible for what happened to your parent but how in any kind of way they be responsible you losing your car or your house. What a lot of you are not realizing is that what some of the things you Think you should be compensated for is what is equilateral to frivolous lawsits. And for those of us that have been in this lawsuit for almost 4 years and you just lost your loved one in the last couple of years guess what that company put a warning label on that med in 2012 and if your loved one chose to have particular med administered to them, I promise you they were told of the risks in doing so!!!
    One more thing for the ones that are saying 250 million is not enough after 4 years, it sure sounds a lot better than the nothing we may end up with, do your homework, Frensius netted 15 billon dollars last year alone. If this settlement decent go through i dont have the money to fight this conglomerate company, do you?

They have took life’s from so many people, life’s matter and we love our family, so Bob don’t you tell me that tha people who pass doing or after 2012 life’s don’t matter,because they do more then ever.No matter if it was today or tomorrow they still need to pay all the family of someone who last a love one,no matter the time or hour but now!!Also anyone who on the machine now you should be paid no matter how long you been on but now!!!!!

    But if we wait 4 more years, how much more will Fresenius have to pay? 500 million, 1 billion? Still peanuts for Fresenius and the ones who run the company now will be long retired. My Dad died over 5 years ago and my Mother is 81 years old. My prayer has always been that she would live long enough to at least recieve SOMETHING from this, she lost her husband of over 50 years. She may not have another 4 years to wait.

    Charles
    You may want to re read my comment, not once did I say anybody’s life was not important.
    What I said was if you family member was on dialysis for 10 years it probably wasn’t this medicine that killed them that comment does not indicate they weren’t important only that this probably wasnt why they died .
    Why would you say was only thinkig of my self is it because after the warning labels people still choose to be administered Granuflo/ Natualyte ? You obviously have never actually seen to a dialysis treatment or you would know that if your loved one received this med and had complications / death after March of 2012 they were told of the risk. Again this medicine isn’t something you hold In your hand so it was probly not read off the box there is no box no “Beware” what I’m saying is they were given paper work with the risk and we’re verbally told of the risk and still chose to do so. That Charles is not thinking of myself, that happens to be the law. What you are saying however is someone can take any med for years on end and when they Happen to die its the medicines/ company’s fault and even when they are informed of the risk in writing and told verbally it’s still the company’s fault. The law and common sense says otherwise, does it not?
    Please don’t tell me I was only thinking of myself Charles because I bothered to find out all the legalities before I filed and before I posted here. I also was at several dialysis appointments with my husband whom by the way was never told of the risk and never signed any paperwork stating any risk. According to you however anyone administered this med no mater how long no matter if they knew of the risk this company is still liable. Let me say again I feel for all the families who lost a loved one but do I feel like everyone who filed should be compensated for their loss, if Frensius is legally liable for that loss absolutely, but if thier not how is that rationality fair to those of us that do have legitimate cases?

    Charles I hope the families all get CLOSURE also .
    If I a taking a drug that’s going to maintain my life I’m not going to miss the BEWARE SIGNS. When the people who are administering that med are informing (telling) me of those risk I’m not going to miss any of that either. Just for the record I’m not going to get eaten by wolves that I knew were there, you know why Charles I’m not going to be there because I was warned!!
    I never once said that anyone’s life wasn’t important what I said was this company isn’t responsible for a lot of the things on here that people think they are, and one would assume that you are one of those people whose loved one was warned or your loved one past recently, right?
    You feel like everyone on dialysis should be given a settlement , no matter what? That is quit possibly the most ignorant thing I’ve ever heard. You think I need to grow up well Sir Charles you may want to look over a few laws before you post on here and look as Ignorant as most of what you said sounds!!

    You have to prove that the medicine killed the people or person secondly you would have to prove that it was an intentional act before you could scream murder.Fersenuis. is settling so that mean they get away without any harm done to their company.That is not fair to the plaintiffs.
