March 29th marks the two year anniversary for the Granuflo recalls, begun in 2012. Cases for victims who suffered one or multiple catastrophic cardiac events due to the use of the drug, whether they survived or that resulted in the wrongful death of the victim, will have strong cases if filed before the deadline. Currently, Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) is facing more than 515 GranuFlo lawsuits filed on behalf of patients nationwide on the premise of failure to warn. This number is expected to continue to climb in the coming months due to Judge Kirpalani’s recent approval of a Master Complaint and a Short Form Complaint for use in filing new GranuFlo lawsuits.
These new complaint forms were officially approved for use in a Case Management Order issued on December 23, 2013. They are intended to facilitate the filing of new cases, as they explain all of the allegations charged against FMC in the ongoing GranuFlo litigation. Specifically, while the Master Complaint details the various allegations that injured patients have set forth against FMC, the Short Form Complaint is where plaintiffs can specify the nature and extent of their alleged GranuFlo injuries, as well as which allegations from the more in-depth Master Complaint they will be arguing during future trial proceedings.
