Davis & Crump is currently investigating claims for individuals and families across the country who have lost eggs or embryos as a result of the negligence and recklessness of fertility centers and fertility center staff.
Lost or Destroyed Eggs and Embryos
Many families, including those faced with infertility struggles or undergoing significant medical treatment, place a great deal of trust in fertility centers. More specifically, they entrust their most valued property – their eggs or embryos – to the staff of these centers with the understanding that their eggs or embryos will be kept safe and secure. Unfortunately, these centers sometimes fail those who place their trust in them by negligently or recklessly losing or destroying these families’ precious reproductive materials.
For example, a cryogenic tank malfunction in 2018 at San Francisco-based Pacific Fertility resulted in the loss of thousands of egg and embryos. A lawsuit filed against Pacific Fertility and Chart Industries, Inc., the manufacturer of the cryogenic tank, led to a $15 million award for three women and a couple who lost their eggs and embryos in the tragedy. As seen in this case, the manufacturers of equipment used in the storage and processing of eggs and embryos may also be responsible for loss of these materials.
When negligence or recklessness results in lost or destroyed eggs or embryos, the hopes of starting or building a family come crashing down. Often, this tragic loss takes away an individual or family’s last opportunity to have a biological child. The attorneys of Davis & Crump believe that those responsible for this catastrophic loss must answer for their actions, and the victims of this negligent and reckless conduct must be given justice.
