BOSTON, March 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that a recent announcement was made stating that GranuFlo and NaturaLyte lawsuits have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL) with the first bellwether trial set to take place in January of 2016. According to Drug Watch, over 1,800 lawsuits have been consolidated into MDL under U.S. District Judge Douglas P. Woodlock in the District of Massachusetts. The first trial is set to start on January 11th, 2016, with the second bellwether trial starting on February 16th, 2016 (In re: Fresenius GranuFlo/NaturaLyte Dialysate Litigation, MDL No. 2428).

The lawsuits against Fresenius Medical Care Inc. claim that the company knew of the danger in their products and failed to adequately warn and inform the public, and there are also allegations that they neglected to warn health care providers as well as properly train them on how to use these dialysis products safely. The lawsuits allege that Fresenius Medical Care failed to warn dialysis clinics – outside its own Fresenius clinics – of potential Alkali Dosing Errors. Claims against Fresenius Medical Care include patients who have suffered injury or death as a result of using GranuFlo and/or NaturaLyte products during hemodialysis. GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are dialysates used in thousands of dialysis centers to treat patients with kidney disease or failure. Potential injuries and complications from GranuFlo and NaturaLyte products include: heart attack, cardiopulmonary arrest, stroke, and death.

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the upcoming bellwether trials, "With the Granuflo bellwether trials still a year away, this litigation is still in the early stages; although we believe that it could turn into a large class when it is all said and done. With serious injuries, including death in some cases, we stand ready to assist plaintiffs and their families with getting the lawsuit help they need, whether it is getting a Granuflo cash advance or finding a top notch Granuflo law firm."
