Man sues Fresenius Medical Care Holdings for medical errors

Those in Franklin, Ohio, may be interested to know about this case. A man's wife recently died due to alleged doctor negligence and malpractice caused by the use of NaturaLyte and GranuFlo during her dialysis treatments. According to reports, the woman, as well as other patients, suffered significant injuries due to the improper labeling of the products, and these health problems included cardiopulmonary arrest, stroke, and sudden cardiac death.

The woman's husband filed a complaint on June 19, 2013, with the Kanawha Circuit Court in Charleston, N.C. The man claims that the defendant knew about the possible harm that could be caused to patients and attempted to conceal it from the couple, healthcare providers, the medical community, and consumers.

According to the man, the defendant's actions and medical error resulted in the injury and death of his wife, and he believes this has also caused him injury and damages as well. The article states that the man claims the defendants failed to uphold the duty to train, instruct, warn, or monitor physicians and facilities that are using their products and failed to make sure the products were being used properly.

According to the lawsuit, the man is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. The deferral complaint states that the company, Fresenius, did not warn the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the potential dangers of GranuFlo.

A judge will need to decide if the company withheld important information or training with respect to the use of GranuFlo before determining the outcome of this case. As always, if you or someone you know has been injured, it's important to consider your legal options and right to compensation.
