The average family can owe between $400,000 - $500,000 in medical bills for cases of NEC that require surgery. And this figure doesn't account for the cost of treating lifelong complications from NEC, or the emotional pain and suffering that parents endure after their child receives a NEC diagnosis. 

So, how much should formula manufacturers have to pay for the harm they've caused families?

A St. Clair, Illinois jury just unanimously answered that question in the case of Keller Postman client Jasmine Watson, awarding her a historic $60,000,000 after we proved that Enfamil caused her son to develop NEC and tragically pass away.

Nothing can replace a child. But we’re fighting Mead Johnson and other formula makers to get parents the compensation they desperately need to support their families on this difficult road. Thousands of mothers, fathers, and other caregivers are represented by our firm.

If you qualify for a claim with us, you may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical bills, as well as pain and suffering. And we won’t stop until we get you a fair recovery.

NEC causes severe inflammation and bacterial overgrowth in the gut. Symptoms may include:

Studies dating back to the 1990s have shown that cow's milk formula products like Enfamil and Similac can increase the risk of NEC in premature babies tenfold. But formula makers have never warned consumers, and continue to aggressively market their products to caregivers.

If your preemie was fed infant formulas and developed NEC, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Don't wait. Contact Keller Postman today.

We're working to get families serious compensation, including a recent $60 million trial verdict for a single family. If your preemie was fed infant formula and developed NEC, learn if you're eligible for a compensation claim now.

We’ve made the claims process easier than ever. Participate from the comfort of your home, with the few clicks of a button.



How will the claims process work? After you sign up, we’ll investigate and assess whether we have sufficient basis to pursue your case. If you've got a valid claim, we'll determine what jurisdiction your case belongs in and work on preparing it for potential filing in court. It's possible that Defendants could offer a settlement before we've filed your claim. No matter what happens, we'll keep pushing your case forward until we reach a resolution.

How long will my case take? Litigation is unpredictable, but in our experience claims like yours often take a few years to resolve, if not longer. Defendants may fight us every step of the way, or you may receive a settlement offer at any point. If any delays arise, or if resolution seems imminent, we’ll let you know.  

How much compensation could I receive? We can't say for certain until your case progresses. The amount of compensation you could receive will depend on the specific facts of your case, among other variables.

What is your fee structure? We work on a contingency fee basis. That means you only pay us if and when we get a settlement or award on your behalf. We'll deduct our fees from your recovery before it's remitted to you so you don't have to pay us anything out of pocket. And if we don't win your case, you won't owe us anything.
