Parents of preemies who developed NEC are filing Similac lawsuits against Abbott Laboratories.
CLEARWATER, FL, February 17, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — The parents of premature and low birth weight babies who were harmed by baby formula can hold formula manufacturers and medical facilities accountable in court. The problem is, many parents are not aware of the connection between formula-feeding, necrotic enterocolitis (NEC), and infant injury and death.
The product liability lawyers at Dolman Law Group are committed to helping raise awareness of the relationship between serious injury and cow milk-based formula in preterm infants. The attorneys encourage parents whose premature and low birth weight infants were diagnosed with NEC after being fed with this type of baby formula to reach out to them to learn more about their rights.
Similac manufacturers Abbott Laboratories, Enfamil manufacturers Mead Johnson, and other manufacturers have been defendants in dozens of lawsuits. These claims allege that these manufacturers failed to warn, showed negligent misrepresentation, and breached their warranty when they allowed babies to be injured — sometimes fatally — by their products.
These lawsuits allege that the manufacturers and some medical facilities were well-aware of the risks their products posed to these vulnerable infants. However, they chose not to disclose those risks, all in the name of profits.
Until the manufacturers of baby formula and medical facilities that put preterm and low birth weight infants at risk are held to higher standards, babies will continue to be at risk. Parents deserve accurate warning labels and education in all matters that concern their children’s health, safety, and wellbeing.
Who can file an NEC baby formula lawsuit? In order to have a valid claim, your case must meet the following criteria:
Your baby must have been born before 37 weeks gestation
Your baby must have been diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis
Your baby must have been feed cow milk-based formula
Dolman Law Group will fight to get compensation for the families whose children have already been harmed. Parents who believe their child may have been injured by cow milk-based baby formula can contact the law firm for guidance and information.
