National Baby Formula Lawsuit Attorney Represents Families Whose Children Suffered Harmful or Fatal Medical Conditions Linked to Formula Consumed by Premature Infants

Babies who are born prematurely often require extra nutrients to help them grow while avoiding potentially hazardous or fatal medical conditions that premature babies can suffer. If a mother is unable to nurse her premature baby, healthcare providers and parents may turn to infant formula to provide the nutrition that a premature infant needs. However, recent scientific studies have indicated that providing premature infants with formula based on cow’s milk creates a significant risk that a premature baby may develop serious or potentially fatal gastrointestinal conditions. Lawsuits have been filed by the families of premature babies who have developed conditions after consuming cow’s milk-based formula, alleging that the manufacturers of these formula products have known about the risks their products pose to premature infants and have failed to include warnings of those risks on their products or in their marketing. If you and your family have had a child harmed by a medical condition that may have been caused by certain baby formula products, a baby formula lawsuit attorney from Gonzalez & Cartwright may be able to help.

Why Cow Milk-Based Infant Formula Is Harmful to Premature Babies

Recent studies have identified a potential link between the consumption of cow’s milk-based infant formula by premature babies and the development of gastrointestinal diseases such as necrotizing enterocolitis. NEC can lead to inflammation and erosion of the intestinal wall of a premature infant, which may allow bacteria to enter the intestinal tract or may cause a perforation of the small or large intestine, allowing digestive or fecal matter to leak into a baby’s abdomen.

If caught early enough, NEC may be treated through an aggressive course of antibiotics. However, more serious cases may require surgical intervention, including removal of damaged portions of a baby’s intestinal tract, which can leave them with lifelong digestive issues. Perforation of the digestive tract is a life-threatening situation as a baby may quickly develop brain damage or sepsis.

Cow milk-based baby formula is believed to increase the risk of developing NEC for premature babies as their digestive tract has not yet fully developed and can more easily be infected by residual bacteria in cow’s milk. Instead, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that premature babies be fed human breast milk.

Frequently Asked Questions about Baby Formula Lawsuits

Are baby formula manufacturers being sued?

Currently, two manufacturers of baby formula products are being sued by families whose children suffered serious or fatal health problems after ingesting formula products. These manufacturers include Abbott Laboratories, the manufacturers of Similac baby formula products, and Mead Johnson and Company, the manufacturer of Enfamil baby formula products. Both product lines include baby formula made from or containing cow’s milk.

What can my family be compensated for in a baby formula lawsuit?

If your child was born premature and suffered from damaging or fatal medical conditions caused by baby formulas they consumed after being born, you and your family may be entitled to recover compensation for medical expenses your family incurred to treat your child’s condition, ongoing or long-term care costs for permanent effects of the medical condition, and for your child’s pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and/or reduced life expectancy.

How long do I and my family have to file a baby formula lawsuit?

Under the statute of limitations, a product liability lawsuit typically must be filed within four years of the date of injury, while product liability claims involving death must be filed in court within two years. However, minors who are injured by defective baby formula may have as long as seven years to file a law. A baby formula lawsuit attorney from Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. can review the details of your case and advise you as to how long you may have before you must file a lawsuit to pursue your claims.
