Baby Formula Shown to Cause Necrotizing Enterocolitis in Premature Babies
Necrotizing enterocolitis (known as “NEC”), is a gastrointestinal condition found in premature babies. NEC is a bacterial infection causing inflammation of the intestines that can result in serious injury and can even be life threatening. Studies have shown that NEC is significantly more prevalent in premature infants that have been given baby formula containing cow’s milk. Yet, formula makers have refused or failed to warn parents, hospitals, or doctors of these dangers of severe injury or death.
Has your baby been given baby formula containing cow’s milk and suffered from NEC? You may be entitled to compensation. Speak with our baby formula NEC lawsuit and settlement attorneys today, free of charge, to be sure.
How Do I Know if I Qualify for a NEC Baby Formula Lawsuit Claim?
Lawsuits have been filed throughout the nation against the makers of Similac and Enfamil baby formula, based upon the lack of any warning of the dangers of severe injury or death that these products pose to premature babies.
These lawsuits basically allege:
- the victim is a baby who was born prematurely;
- the baby was fed Similac or Enfamil cow’s milk formula in the hospital and/or shortly after arriving home; and
- the baby was directly diagnosed with NEC and suffered injuries.
If your claims fit these criteria, you could be eligible to participate in ongoing national baby formula NEC lawsuits and settlements. But your claims may be subject to time limitations.
