Baby Formula Lawsuit Attorneys
With Numerous Lawsuits Filed Against Baby Formula Manufacturers, Parents Everywhere Demand Answers. Could You Have a Case? Find Out Today.
Lawsuits around the United States claim that the manufacturers of baby formula brands Enfamil and Similac knowingly didn’t disclose that their formula made from cow’s milk may be toxic for newborn infants – specifically premature babies. Evidence shows that premature infants make up 90% of the babies who develop severe gastrointestinal disease Necrotizing Enterocolitis, or NEC, after consuming some formulas marketed and sold to American families and healthcare providers.
Premature infants are typically fed formula at home and at the hospital to support their still-developing bodies and aid in weight gain. Unfortunately, what’s supposed to support their development may be causing them great harm. If your baby was fed Similac or Enfamil formula and later diagnosed with NEC, you may be entitled to compensation from Abbott Laboratories or Mead Johnson and should consult with an attorney right away. The Baby Formula Lawsuit attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson are here for you and your family in these incredibly challenging times.

What is Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)?
Necrotizing Enterocolitis is a severe and potentially deadly gastrointestinal condition that causes intestinal tissue death and inflammation that may cause holes in the intestine. In addition, bacteria from the intestine could leak into the abdomen or blood, causing severe illness or potentially fatal blood infection. NEC usually develops suddenly within two to six weeks after birth, and up to 50% of these cases in premature newborns could be fatal.
Signs and Symptoms of Necrotizing Enterocolitis
Symptoms of Necrotizing Enterocolitis, or NEC, include:
- Abdominal pain and swelling
- Changes in heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and breathing
- Diarrhea with bloody stool
- Green or yellow vomit
- Refusing to eat and lack of weight gain
If your baby is exhibiting these symptoms after formula feeding, seek medical help immediately and consult with an experienced NEC attorney at Grimes Teich Anderson.
