Big Tech, Big Pharma, financial scams, sexual assault, medical devices, pay disparity, and even toxic chemicals.

We help consumers, specifically, Mothers find the best legal representation for their needs.
Infant Formula Lawsuits
The average verdict or settlement amount in the seven most recent malpractice lawsuits our lawyer found for NEC in premature infants was around $3.5 million.
Infant Formulas Enfamil and Similac Have Been Linked to a Life-Threatening Condition for Premature Babies or Preterm Infants
Cow’s milk-based baby formula and milk fortifier products (like Enfamil™ and Similac®) are more likely to develop necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a serious potentially fatal gastrointestinal illness that is seen mostly in premature babies and low-birth-weight babies.
How common is necrotizing enterocolitis?
In premature infants, NEC is a common gastrointestinal illness. It affects 1 in 1,000 premature babies. The risk is greatest for babies weighing less than 2 pounds.
The condition only rarely affects full-term infants. About 1 in 10,000 full-term babies get NEC.
Can Baby Formula Cause NEC?
While not all baby formula products carry a risk of digestive disease, some cow milk-based products made by Enfamil™ and Similac® do pose a risk to a child’s health. If you have any of the following products in your home, you should dispose of them and find a safer alternative for your child:
- Similac Special Care 20
- Similac NeoSure
- Similac Special Care 24
- Similac Special Care 30
- Similac Special Care 24 - High Protein
- Similac Liquid Protein Fortifier
- Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier
- Enfamil NeuroPro EnfaCare
- Enfamil 24 Cal
Parents of premature infants have filed lawsuits against Mead Johnson and Abbott Laboratories. In 2015, a federal jury in Philadelphia awarded $12 million to Robert Coyle. He developed NEC after being fed cow's milk-based baby formula with the Similac human milk fortifier while still in the hospital.
