More on NEC

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) causes intestinal tissue to die, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Holes can also develop in the intestine, allowing bacteria to leak into the baby’s abdomen. NEC may lead to additional serious health problems, including:

  • Abdominal infection called peritonitis
  • Sepsis
  • Intestinal stricture, or narrowing of the intestines
  • Short bowel syndrome, difficulty absorbing fluids and nutrients

Many of the effects of NEC require surgery to attempt to repair the damage done to a baby’s abdomen and intestine. If the condition is not fatal, infants may also suffer from growth failure and neuro-developmental issues.

Symptoms of NEC

  • Abdominal pain and swelling
  • Diarrhea with bloody stool
  • Green or yellow vomit
  • Changes in heart rate and blood pressure
  • Changes in body temperature and breathing
  • Refusing to eat
  • Lack of weight gain
  • Lethargy

Tragically, premature babies have suffered severe injuries or died after ingesting cow’s milk-based formula—and their parents were never warned of the risks. Several parents have filed lawsuits against Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company to seek justice for the harm done.

If your baby was fed cow’s milk-based formula, suffered abdominal injuries, and was diagnosed with NEC contact Craig Kelley at Inserra | Kelley | Sewell. We can help you get answers. Call 800-642-1242. There is no obligation when you contact us.

The team at Inserra Kelley and Sewell are a no nonsense group of professionals that handled my case with tact and care.... Every step of the way I was notified promptly and advised on a course of action. They handled the negotiation side of things and handled all the back end work for me. In my particular case, I feel that I got what I was owed and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again if the need ever arose. Craig is super friendly and down to earth and even helped me seek employment at one point.Overall, a great group of folks to deal with and they really make you feel like family. Thanks guys for the help when I needed it more
