Toxic Baby Formula
A class action lawsuit is a way for a group of people who have suffered similar harms to bring a single collective case and share in any potential award. You become part of a group, with far more potential power than filing a lawsuit on your own—and at no cost to you.
Filing a class action lawsuit allows us to consolidate evidence, witnesses, and litigation expenses to make the lawsuit more efficient and effective. The collective “clout” of the class is typically far more effective than an action by any individual plaintiff.
No! The attorneys work on contingency, and only get paid if the case is successful. Any fees they may be awarded are determined by the court and paid by the defendant.
As of now, multiple lawsuits have been filed by parents after their children developed necrotizing enterocolitis after using either Similac or Enfamil baby formula.
Necrotizing enterocolitis is a digestive disease that occurs primarily in premature infants and can cause inflammation of the intestinal lining, which can lead to serious infections. In such cases, the inflamed intestinal wall is eventually eroded away, which allows bacteria to enter the intestinal tract and jeopardize the health of the infant. The medical professional in charge of your infant’s care should monitor for the following symptoms:
- Swollen, red, or tender stomach
- Abdominal pressure
- Fluctuations in temperature
- Abnormal breathing
- Low blood pressure
Most infants survive the disease with serious, long-term injuries, but in more extreme cases infants may pass away.
According to the scientific study, both Similac and Enfamil products have been linked to NEC in premature babies.
