Who can make a necrotizing enterocolitis claim or file an NEC formula lawsuit?

Any parent or family member of a baby who has fallen victim to NEC while taking Similac Special Care, Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier, and Enfamil NeuroPro EnfaCare Infant formula. Preemies or low birth weight infants are highly susceptible to NEC because their intestines are not fully developed yet. This leaves the baby at a high risk of developing inflammation in the intestines which could lead to other serious health problems or even death.

How much time do I have to file an NEC formula lawsuit?

However, most families with an infant who developed NEC from formula tend to fall within the time limits only if an attorney is contacted as soon as possible. To find out a specific time limit for your claim, visit our website or call us and one of our lawyers will directly speak with you on the best course of action to take.

Who is most at risk for developing NEC from the baby formula?

Many findings and data have indicated that babies that are the most susceptible to NEC are premature infants born before the 36th week of gestation and low birth weight infants. The use of infant formula for nutritional purposes actually doubles the risk of developing NEC. Further research suggests that babies who are fed human breast milk are much less likely to develop NEC. There is always a chance that a full-term baby falls victim to NEC, but it is rare and almost always linked to another health problem.

Do we really need to file a lawsuit?

In the event that a family member suffered severe injury or health problems due to a defective product or long-term and life-threatening conditions, medical care will be required. Due to this, it becomes incredibly expensive since medical costs are continuously rising. In an even more unfortunate situation where your baby passed away due to NEC, there is no amount of money that can reverse that wrong.
