Yaz and Yasmine
Bayer, based in Leverkusen, Germany, has resolved thousands of cases alleging its Yasmin and Yaz contraceptives caused sometimes fatal clots that can lead to heart attacks and strokes. The company has paid an average of about $218,000 a case. There are also claims that the contraceptives damaged gallbladders or caused gallstones. A dangerous drug lawyer is necessary when dealing with these claims.
GranuFlo and NaturaLyte
GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are brand names of dialysates manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care – the world’s largest provider of kidney dialysis services and products – and used in thousands of dialysis centers to treat Americans with kidney disease or failure. However, after investigating the harmful effects of these products, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Class I recall of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte on March 29, 2012, to revise prescribing instructions. According to the recall, use of these two products can lead to low blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmia. These conditions “may culminate in cardiopulmonary arrest” or other conditions, including death. Evidence surfaced that Fresenius was aware of the dangers of these drugs and did not share this information with health care providers or consumers. The growing number of people injured by these dangerous products resulted in lawsuits filed against Fresenius and DaVita Healthcare medical centers, which also use the drugs. A dangerous drug lawyer can help you recover for these injuries.
