Fresenius, Maker of Recalled Dialysis Drugs GranuFlo And NaturaLyte, Is Back In The News With Problems At Its Dialysis Center In Bessemer, Alabama

Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

Consumer injury attorney Michael J. Evans announced today that he and two other law firms have launched a new website for people who believe they have claims for injuries caused by dialysis. The website is

"My litigation partners and I decided it was time to begin offering legal services to people who may have been injured by the recalled dialysis drugs GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, or who may have suffered injuries due to some other form of negligent conduct by the company performing dialysis," said Evans.

"Fresenius, the maker of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, not only makes dialysis drugs, but it also provides dialysis services through dialysis centers located throughout the United States." said Evans.

"The GranuFlo and NaturalLyte recall in 2012 was followed up by the filing of so many lawsuits that they were given multidistrict litigation status and transferred to the federal court in the District of Massachusetts on March 29, 2013," Evans said.

Evans noted that "a June 17, 2013 report says that Bessemer Kidney Center, operated by Fresenius in Bessemer, Alabama, was closed in May 2013 after 2 deaths and 5 hospitalizations occurred within a few days. Although an investigation by the Alabama Department of Public Health did not find "a common thread" tying the deaths and hospitalizations together, the investigation did find "deficiencies" that must be addressed with a plan of action before the center can re-open, according to the report on The report says that "deficiencies" were found at the dialysis center last year, as well."

The new website,, will focus on more than just GranuFlo and NaturaLyte lawsuits," said Evans. "We plan to look at other potential cases for people who have been harmed by dialysis mistakes, defective dialysis equipment, or dialysis drugs such as GranuFlo or NaturaLyte."

Evans noted that Fresenius received a Warning Letter from the FDA on March 5, 2013 for manufacturing "adulterated" dialyzers. (A copy of the Warning Letter is attached to this release.)

"After researching the dialysis industry, my litigation partners and I came to believe that there may be a number of people with injuries arising out of defective dialysis drugs or medical devices, or other medical mistakes in the dialysis procedure," Evans said. Evans said he has launched the website in partnership with the prominent litigation law firms of Yearout & Traylor, P.C. and Gathings Law.
