GranuFlo Personal Injury Lawsuits
Girard Gibbs has filed lawsuits in federal and California state courts seeking recoveries for those who have suffered cardiac arrest or lost a loved one following treatment with GranuFlo in dialysis. These GranuFlo lawsuits are not a class action per se but rather a mass tort lawsuit, in which a group of individually filed cases are coordinated for pretrial proceedings. These cases are usually consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL), which allows a single court to resolve legal and factual questions common to many individual cases in a much more effective and cost-efficient way before the facts specific to each case are considered at trial.
A GranuFlo mass tort allows a court to efficiently manage pre-trial proceedings, including the collection of evidence about whether GranuFlo producer Fresenius violated any legal obligations to notify the public of the risks associated with its product. Then, the specific injuries, pain and suffering, and other harm sustained by victims would be addressed at individual trials.
