Typically for product liability lawsuits, which toxic baby formula lawsuits fall under, there is a two-year statute of limitations.
This means that mothers of infants and premature babies who were developed Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) have two years from the date of diagnosis to file a claim.
Statute of limitations may differ depending on the state you file your NEC Baby Formula Lawsuit in.
Contact an attorney for more individualized information relative to your claim.

These estimated settlement amounts are by no means a guarantee of financial compensation for NEC lawsuits, they are simply an educated guess based on results in previous product liability lawsuits.
The toxic baby formula NEC lawsuit involves infant formula brands that have been linked to Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC), a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that affects the intestines of premature and low birth weight infants.
NEC can cause severe abdominal pain, malnutrition, and in severe cases, death.
If you or a loved one has suffered from NEC and were fed Enfamil baby formula, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a serious gastrointestinal disorder that primarily affects premature infants and low birth weight babies.
It is characterized by intestinal inflammation and necrosis (death) of the intestinal tissue, leading to severe abdominal pain, vomiting, and blood in the stool.
NEC is a life-threatening condition and can result in short bowel syndrome, which requires long-term parenteral nutrition (intravenous feeding) and can lead to malnutrition and other complications.
Multiple scientific studies, dating back to the early 1990s, indicate that premature infants who are fed only human breast milk and not cow milk based formulas are less likely to develop NEC.
Studies on the risk of formula feeding and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) include:
Currently, two baby formula brands mentioned in Toxic Baby Formula Lawsuits are:
Similac and Enfamil formula are two of those most popular infant formulas for premature infants.
These infant formulas are often given to premature infants in the hospital, or sent home with parents as a gift.
The companies named in NEC Infant Formula Lawsuits are Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company LLC.
Enfamil and Similac Baby Formula Lawsuits are consolidated in multi district litigation in the US District Court: Northern District of Illinois.
There are other NEC baby formula lawsuits filed in other jurisdictions, but most cases are centralized in the NEC Formula MDL.
The NEC Formula MDL is currently undergoing selection of bellwether trials.
Bellwether trials are a practice run to help anticipate the results of future similar cases.
Bellwether trials offer the unique opportunity for plaintiffs to test the structure of their case and see how the judge or jury perceive the argument.
If the initial arguments have mixed success, the lead attorneys can try to restructure the argument in hopes of stronger results for the broader range of cases involved in the MDL.
The cases selected for a bellwether trial are meant to represent the broader range of cases involved in the MDL.
The results of the bellwether trial are in no way definitive of other cases tried from the MDL.
Rather, the bellwether trial results are just expectation indicators.
