Parents of premature infants are filing lawsuits against certain baby formula manufacturers after research has showed that feeding ‘preemies’ cow’s milk-based baby formula increases the risk of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Lawsuits being filed highlight that formula manufacturers do not place warnings about NEC on their product labels alerting parents or medical professionals of the potential risks of using the product.
Parents of infants with NEC are pursuing compensation for injuries or death, as well as financial losses and emotional distress. Due to the vast number of potential plaintiff’s coming forward, an increasing number of law firms are pursuing NEC cases.
If your law firm is considering targeting NEC cases, partner with a legal call center that can help you generate and convert more potential clients. At Legal Conversion Center, our NEC lawsuits intake services provide the support your law firm needs to obtain NEC leads, convert more leads, and provide the outstanding legal guidance NEC clients need.
NEC is a serious medical condition that affects infants, particularly those born before 32 weeks of gestation. It involves inflammation and damage to the intestines, specifically the colon and small intestine. NEC typically manifests as a range of symptoms, including feeding difficulties, bloating, vomiting, and bloody stools. In severe cases, the condition can progress to tissue death (necrosis) in the affected intestinal segments, leading to perforation of the intestine and potentially causing infection to spread into the abdominal cavity.
Research suggests that one of the leading causes of NEC is cow’s milk-based baby formula. Baby formula is harder to digest and may lead to slower gut maturation. The introduction of formula can alter the composition of the gut microbiome, potentially promoting an environment that is conducive to inflammation and infection, both of which are central to the development of NEC.
Parents of infants who survive NEC may qualify for an NEC lawsuit if their child suffered:
- Bowel perforation
- Intestinal strictures
- Cerebral palsy
- Neurological damage
- Bowel resection
Parents of infants who died due to NEC may also qualify for compensation through a wrongful death claim.Have a Question? Call Us Today!
