Attorney Portrait

The Georgia baby formula lawyers at Fob James Law Firm are representing victims that have been diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) after ingesting Enfamil and Similac baby formula.

Evidence suggests that cow milk in these formulas can cause premature babies to develop NEC, which is a serious intestinal disease.

The crux of the NEC lawsuit is that the makers of Enfamil and Similac baby formulas failed to adequately warn parents of the risks.

If your child has been diagnosed with NEC, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our biggest concern is making sure you get the justice and the compensation that you deserve.

What Is Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)?

NEC is a serious intestinal disaease that occurs when bacteria invades the infant’s intestinal wall.

The bacteria results in infection and inflammation that can destroy the intestinal tissue. This can leave permanent scars or narrow parts of the infant’s intestine, causing lifelong complications.

In severe NEC cases, the complete destruction of intestine tissue can lead to severe infection and, in many cases, death.

Premature infants that are fed cow’s milk based formula are at a significantly higher risk for developing NEC. Consequently, the NEC lawsuit is focused on premature babies.

If you think your premature infant was injured due to cow’s milk based baby formula, call us at 866-837-1010 to schedule your free consultation with a NEC lawsuit lawyer in Georgia.

How Long Do I Have To File A NEC Lawsuit in Georgia?

The time to file a claim is know as the statute of limitations (“SOL”). The SOL for NEC lawsuits is very complicated.

The SOL is different for minors than for adults. Also, every state is different so make sure you consult with an attorney about how long you have to file a lawsuit.

In Georgia, you generally have two years from the date of discovery of your injury to file a lawsuit.

Again, NEC claims are complex since they involve children. Contact Fob James Law Firm to discuss to see if your case qualifies.

How Do I Join The NEC Lawsuit in Georgia?

It is simple to join the NEC lawsuit. Call us today or submit your contact information and our attorneys will call you to discuss your case.

It does not matter where you live. We represent victims of baby dangerous baby formula products in all 50 states.

Regardless of your location, all NEC cases are filed in the MDL, which is federal court.

When Will the Georgia NEC Lawsuit Settle?

No one knows when the NEC baby formula lawsuits will settle.

In large mass tort cases such as this, there are large battles that must be won before settlement. These battles take time.

Ultimately, the Court will schedule “bellwether” trials which are like test trials. These trials give plaintiffs and defendants a good barometer on value and strength of certain types of cases.

If plaintiffs are successful in bellwether trials, the defendants may be inclined to explore settlement.

This is completely speculative but we believe the time frame for settlement could be 2-4 years. Although several years sounds like a long time, this is standard for large MDLs.
