Baby Formula Lawsuit Lawyers To Fight For You
The use of cow’s milk baby formula for pre-term and low birth weight newborn babies puts them at risk for NEC. This is a severe intestinal disease that happens when the tissue composing the small or large intestine is hurt or inflamed. Necrotizing Enterocolitis can lead to inflammation causing a dangerous perforation in the intestinal wall. A hole in the bowel is a dangerous medical emergency that requires proper medical attention, including surgical intervention, and has an increased death rate.
NEC can be a deadlymedical condition of the gastrointestinal tract characterized by:
Astonishingly, the labels for these products contain no NEC written warnings, no suggested guidelines, or directions about the possible health risks of infants born prematurely that might alert medical professionals to advise against using the infant formula.
While symptoms of necrotizing enterocolitis can vary from infant to infant, a premature baby suffering from NEC might experience:
NEC treatment typically involves halting all feedings and eliminating excess gas from the bowel; antibiotic treatment and IV infant feeding are also typically started.
Sadly, families are now pursuing compensation by filing NEC infant formula legal claims against formula manufacturers.
Parents who lost a child or whose child suffered harm due to NEC after ingesting infant cow’s milk formula products for premature babies are filing necrotizing enterocolitis baby formula claims. The legal claims are being filed against the companies responsible for manufacturing infant formula marketed under Enfamil and Similac brands.

When possible, breast milk is healthiest possible option for feeding a newborn because:
When breastfeeding is not an option, premature infants may be fed human breast milk through a complex feeding tube system through the stomach, mouth or nose. If the mother cannot nurse, donor milk can be used to supplement feeding.
It is well well-known that the risk of NEC increases when a premature infant is fed infant formula, and the risk decreases when breast milk is administered. Additionally, research has established that preemie babies who are fed only a diet of human breast milk without any cow’s-milk containing products being introduced have a lower risk of NEC.
Each state in the United States has a different statute of limitations for filing a baby formula lawsuit. Failure to file a claim before the statute of limitations passes may mean you can never file a claim for financial recovery. If you believe your infant suffered harm, including NEC, after being fed formula made from cow’s milk, contact the preemie formula lawyers at Action Legal Group to preserve your right to recover compensation.
