Iowa GranuFlo Lawsuit Lawyers

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 Hope Law Firm at (515) 255-3559
to learn more about your legal options and rights. You may be
compensated for medical expenses if a pharmaceutical manufacturer is responsible
for negligence of informing patients of the common risks of GranuFlo.

Risk Factors

GranuFlo is a medical drug for hemodialysis treatment, which is a common
method used to treat kidney failure. GranuFlo 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


  • 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
