INFANT FORMULA LINKED TO INJURY AND DEATH OF PREMATURE BABIES

There are few joys as meaningful as that of a new baby. The promise of life and dreams to be realized.

One in ten babies are born prematurely (prior to 37 weeks gestation) and over 1 million die each year due to complications. The care and feeding of premature babies is a delicate balance and often requires baby formula to supplement. Feeding infant formula to premature babies while hospitalized should be a safe practice. Yet, while Enfamil and Similac create highly caloric, cow’s milk products designed for prematurity, it is anything but safe! Lawsuits filed allege that products made by Enfamil and Similac put preemies at an increased risk for a life-threatening condition called Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC).

Elizabeth Kaveny, Managing Partner for Kaveny + Kroll Trial Lawyers understands as perhaps few others can.  As the mother of twins born at 27 weeks gestation, she has experienced the rollercoaster ride of preemies in the Neonatology Intensive Care Unit (NICU). While her babies returned home, she holds resolute the lessons that she learned from her months in NICU: “Every mother deserves a healthy child.”

Today, parents are filing lawsuits against formula manufacturers including Abbott Laboratories, Inc. (Abbott) and Mead Johnson & Company and LLC, Mead Johnson Nutrition Company (Mead Johnson), for injuries and deaths to their babies.

If you believe your child has suffered Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) resulting in injury or death after being fed a cow’s milk formula, a Kaveny + Kroll attorney can help you build a claim.  Your family may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and other damages related to your child’s injuries or tragic death.  Contact an Infant Safety Lawyer at Kaveny + Kroll as soon as possible for a free initial case evaluation.
