More About Fertility Law and Protection of IVF Patient Rights

For families unable to conceive naturally, fertility clinics open up an opportunity to have children. Common fertility procedures and treatments include In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injections (ICSI), embryo genetic testing, and surgical sperm retrieval.

Unfortunately, due to equipment failure or staff negligence, it is not uncommon for the human eggs and embryos stored at fertility clinics to be damaged, destroyed, or lost. When this occurs, clients often have good grounds to sue to recover damages for their losses.

Girard Sharp’s Commitment to Excellence and Victim Advocacy

Our lawyers have a distinguished and successful track record in fertility disaster cases. We obtained a $14.75 million jury verdict on behalf of five patients of Pacific Fertility Center whose frozen eggs and embryos were compromised by a cryopreservation tank failure at PFC’s San Francisco clinic in March 2018. The jury found that the tank manufacturer, Chart Industries, acted negligently and is strictly liable for the destruction of this irreplaceable human reproductive material. This litigation continues on behalf of many other patients.

Our attorneys are dedicated to advocating for women and families who have suffered harm, from holding pharmaceutical companies accountable for marketing birth-control pills that caused life-threatening blood clots, to obtaining a $73 million settlement of a class action lawsuit against UCLA benefiting patients of a campus gynecologist who sexually assaulted women in a position he held for almost thirty years.

If your eggs or embryos have been lost, damaged, or destroyed, or you know of a questionable practice adversely affecting women and families, please reach out to us for legal assistance.
