Was your baby fed Similac or Enfamil formula while in neonatal intensive care? Did your baby later develop necrotizing enterocolitis, also known as “NEC,” a life-threatening gastrointestinal disorder?
Several scientific studies have shown that Similac and Enfamil cow’s milk-based infant formulas are linked to an increased risk of causing premature infants to develop NEC. Yet the makers of Similac and Enfamil failed to warn consumers about this risk and continued to market their products as safe and beneficial for premature babies.
When your baby was born premature, fed Similac or Enfamil formula, and later developed NEC, The Gutierrez Law Firm could seek these damages for you in a mass torts lawsuit:
- Past and future medical expenses to treat your child’s injuries
- Past and future pain and suffering your child has experienced because of their injuries
- Wage losses, if any
- Other economic losses experienced because of your child’s injuries
- Punitive damages, if appropriate
