As someone who was hurt by a defective medical instrument or piece of equipment in South Carolina, you know you need to “do something” to protect your rights and to punish the physician or company responsible for the devastation. You’re not a student of the law. You lack the education to go to trial or […]
It’s kind of a mystery, isn’t it? So many North Carolina mass tort class action lawsuits could be avoided if liable parties took more responsible action, voluntarily, earlier in the process. On this blog, we’ve covered in depth the ongoing “legal drama” over the dialysis company Fresenius’s drugs, GranuFlo and NaturaLyte — drugs which can […]
When Margaret Wente first learned about the possibility of metal-on-metal hip replacements, she was pretty elated. According to her essay in Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper, she had been looking forward to replacing her “crumbling arthritic joints” with a “shiny ball and socket made of cobalt and chromium,” and she sought after DePuy Orthopedic’s metal-on-metal […]
A medical device–as Guidant defibrillator or Stryker metal-on-metal hip component–failed you. The results have been nothing less than catastrophic. Maybe you’ve experience horrendous pain during menses and total inability to have sex, ever since you had transvaginal mesh surgery. Or maybe your husband suffered a series of cardiac events after his Guidant defibrillator failed to […]
You’ve been in excruciating pain, ever since you had metal-on-metal hip replacement surgery. Whether you got Stryker hip components or some other components–whether you had the surgery five years ago or five days ago–you know that something is not quite right.

“Decent Performance” for Fresenius… Even as GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Patients (and Their Survivors) Suffer The dialysis company, Fresenius — makers of the drugs GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, which have been at heart of many recent North Carolina injury lawsuits — turned in a “decent performance” financially in the most recent quarter. Executives say the company will […]
Will the mass tort cases against Fresenius–the manufacturer of dialysis products, NaturaLyte and GranuFlo–succeed or fail? All told, plaintiffs have launched more than three dozen “Failure to Warn” lawsuits against the nation’s biggest supplier of dialysis products and machines. The legal sturm und drang has to do with whether these two products (GranuFlo and Naturalyte) […]
Whether you suffer from metallosis, thanks to a poorly done metal-on-metal hip replacement, or you saw your spouse suffer a cardiac event brought on by a dialysis product, like Fresenius’ GranuFlo or Naturalyte, you’re probably wondering how to move forward with your legal research. Here’s an interesting question to ponder: How will your case evolve? […]
In a batch of recent blog posts, we’ve discussed the legal battle over Fresenius’ GranuFlo and NaturaLyte dialysis products. Just to recap: These dialysis products — which are available at hundreds of clinics across the United States — can stimulate cardiac damage (even fatal heart attacks) in certain vulnerable patients, probably because they elevate bicarbonate […]
People get injured in North Carolina in diverse ways. • Maybe you suffered debilitating metallosis after a metal-on-metal hip replacement surgery. • Or perhaps your spouse suffered a cardiac event after his bicarbonate levels spiked when he was treated with GranuFlo or NaturaLyte at a Fresenius dialysis clinic. Stories like these are disturbing. If you’ve […]
