Allentown, Pennsylvania - Necrotizing Enterocolitis, or NEC, is a severe gastrointestinal (GI) health condition that injures or inflames small or large intestines of premature infants that are fed cow-milk-based formula instead of breast milk. NEC can also prove fatal, requiring surgical intervention, or ultimately lead to death. An estimated 8 out of 10 babies survive the deadly disease, but many go on to develop long-term health complications.
At present, baby formula lawsuits are being filed against the manufacturers of Similac and Enfamil as preemies develop NEC due to the formula that is fed in hospitals.
Abbott Laboratories, Inc. and Mead Johnson & Company, LLC are the major defendants in the suit. Their subsidiaries and affiliates are also being called out for their negligent actions.
That is why ZeroRisk Cases® is approaching these matters with absolute zeal and precision. These lawsuits might not be as big as other mass torts like AFFF lawsuits and the Tylenol disputes, but these can be a great addition to any law firm’s docket.
Plaintiffs allege that manufacturers knew (or should have known) their products were harmful to premature babies, yet they failed to warn physicians and parents about the associated risks.
Several studies suggest formula-fed pre-term infants are 10 times more likely to develop NEC. In addition, 3% of preemies born with a 2 pounds 12.13 oz. to 3 pounds 4.91 oz. body weight are also at risk of developing NEC. There are close to 11% of babies born with a weight of 1 pounds 10.46 oz. to be particularly vulnerable to NEC.
Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) is life-threatening. The plaintiffs are filing suits to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and many other damages. It is also important to note that not every case in this class action MDL will be taken to court and may have the possibility of being settled out of court. However, suing these larger corporations will be a great way to hold them accountable for their wrongdoings while leading to changes in the baby formula being currently produced, marketed, and regulated.
“The law field is a service industry. It is important to have a good set of employees and an even better set of cases to keep the sector moving forward. But the fear of unknown, lacking collaboration efforts, and not utilizing tech-based tools is keeping firms from the competitive advantage they could have otherwise gained,” Edward Lott, Ph.D., M.B.A., President and Managing Partner says.
They also add that there needs to be a solid plan to acquire clients, keep the law firm’s team up-to-date, and add to the company’s profitability.
Dr. Lott further mentions, “As the baby formula litigation evolves, personal injury and product liability attorneys will be under immense pressure to explore this area of the law and act more proactively. Those who will be quick to adapt will accelerate their growth opportunities rather than escaping for the green pasture. If you think your team can authentically and meaningfully add value to your dock, ZeroRisk Cases can capture highly converting clients with its cutting-edge tools and techniques.”
These lawsuits can be filed for a number of reasons, some of which include defective products, false advertising, and injuries caused by the product. In so many cases, parents who lost their kids didn’t even know the cause. Now that, with time, the litigation is gaining traction, many are coming forward and speaking up for the years of injustice that has been happening.
