The Whitley Law Firm would like to announce that we have recently begun to take on personal injury cases involving Granuflo, NaturaLyte and Transvaginal Mesh products. Each one of these defective and dangerous products has caused thousands of people across the United States serious physical harm, so we would like to make sure that all such victims are able to recover the rightful compensation that they deserve.
Are you uncertain as to whether or not you have grounds to pursue a lawsuit against the negligent makers of these products? If so, it is important to speak to an experienced lawyer from our firm as soon as possible about the circumstances of your case. For more general information about the negative impact that these products have had on countless people across the country, however, we encourage you to continue reading.
NaturaLyte Granuflo and NaturaLyte Liquid Acid Concentrate are two products that have been widely used in dialysis treatment facilities across the U.S. for the past several years. It wasn’t until June 27, 2012 that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Class I recall, however, mandating that Fresenius Medical Care North America Company discontinue the distribution and/or use of these dangerous products.
It was discovered that patients were suffering from severe heart complications within 48 hours of undergoing dialysis treatment because of a high level of serum bicarbonate that was present in the products. Although not all people that have received these treatments have been exposed to this particular brand, it has been reported that about one-third of all patients that have completed dialysis treatments have done so at a Fresenius Medical Care Company facility.
For this reason, if you have suffered any type of heart complication after completing a dialysis treatment, it is important that you consult with an attorney immediately. Similarly, if you have experienced any negative side-effects after receiving a transvaginal mesh implant, you should not hesitate to explore your legal options. For the past three years, the FDA has been warning consumers about the risks of this surgical mesh—which was designed to treat Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence in women.
Shortly after its release onto the market, however, thousands of reports were made about “infection, pain, urinary problems, and recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence,” as well as “bowel, bladder, and blood vessel perforation during insertion” (US Food and Drug Administration.)
Because of this, if you have experienced any of these concerning side-effects, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. To find out how you can get started on filing a personal injury lawsuit against the makers of these unsafe products, we urge you to contact a lawyer from the Whitley Law Firm today.
