Dialysis Attorney Appointed to Plaintiff Steering Committee (PSC) in GranuFlo/Naturalyte JCCP in California

Posted on 07/26/2013Back

Minneapolis, MN – GoldenbergLaw is pleased to announce that dialysis attorney Stuart Goldenberg has been appointed to another mass tort leadership role. The California JCCP (consolidated action in state court) was established to deal with the increasing number of claims against Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) brought by dialysis attorneys on behalf of patients and their families.

The dialysis claims allege injury and/or death as a result of known errors in dialysis treatment caused by the dialysis products GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, both manufactured by FMC. The products have been used not only in Fresenius dialysis clinics but also have been distributed to other centers such as Davita Clinics and hospitals.

Although GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are not the only options when it comes to dialysis, they have been used to treat a large portion of hemodialysis patients throughout the past decade. Currently, there are a few consolidated actions being organized across the country. In addition to the JCCP in California state court, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) voted to consolidate federal claims in the District of Massachusetts. There is also a consolidated action in Massachusetts state court.

If you or a loved one have suffered a cardiac-related event after having dialysis treatment, contact a dialysis attorney today.
