Aronfeld Trial Lawyers is representing people who have used infant formulas for preterm and low-birth weight newborns puts babies at risk for life-threatening necrotizing enterocolitis or NEC. We are seeking compensation via NEC formula lawsuits against the manufacturers.
To date, multiple lawsuits have been filed by parents after their children developed necrotizing enterocolitis by ingesting either Similac or Enfamil baby formula.
Aronfeld Trial Lawyers is investigating these cases now on behalf of injured babies and their families.
You may have a case if:
•Baby was born prematurely, defined as 34 weeks gestation or less.
•Baby was given Enfamil, Similac, or other cow’s milk-based formulas or fortifiers.
•Baby was diagnosed with NEC after consuming a cow’s milk-based formula or fortifier.
•Baby has been subjected to unnecessary injury, surgery, or death.
The makers of Enfamil and Similac are facing serious questions about the link between fatal cases of NEC and premie baby formula and the lack of safety warning. Families whose premature infants developed NEC after being fed Similac or Enfamil are filing NEC formula lawsuits against Similac and Enfamil manufacturers. Filing a NEC baby formula lawsuit is the only means parents and families have to obtain the compensation they deserve for suffering, harm, medical expenses and loss related to NEC from premie baby formulas. We believe that filing a NEC formula lawsuit claim is the best method for individual consumers to hold Abbott and Mead Johnson accountable for neglecting to warn consumers of this fatal danger.
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating disease that affects mostly the intestine of premature infants. The wall of the intestine is invaded by bacteria, which cause local infection and inflammation that can ultimately destroy the wall of the bowel (intestine). Such bowel wall destruction can lead to perforation of the intestine and spillage of stool into the infant’s abdomen, which can result in an overwhelming infection and death.
