Lost or Destroyed Embryos

For individuals and couples trying to conceive, losing embryos due to negligence is a catastrophic outcome. While there is no national database that monitors incidents where embryos were lost, there have been at least  133 lawsuits  filed between 2009 and 2019 related to damaged or lost embryos.

Fertility Fraud

Most embryo mix-ups are the result of negligence. But there have been several instances where fertility doctors have committed intentional misconduct. In a number of situations, fertility doctors have used their own sperm to impregnate patients without their informed consent.

Wrong Sperm Used

Fertility clinics are supposed to keep detailed and accurate records of all of the genetic material that they use. Lab technicians are also supposed to follow certain safety protocols to prevent mix-ups. Fertility clinics should establish clear and strict protocols for handling gametes (sperm and eggs) during the IVF process.

Families Who Have Been Victimized

IVF mixups and other forms of negligence are much more common than many people realize. The major causes of errors at fertility clinics remain improper labeling and poor communication. Our team of fertility attorneys is dedicated to helping individuals who have been victimized by various forms of misconduct in the IVF industry. We understand the emotional and financial toll that fertility issues can take on families, and we are committed to providing compassionate legal assistance for all affected. This could include instances where embryos are lost or destroyed. It may also involve instances where a fertility clinic uses the wrong embryo, egg, or sperm.
Despite the fact that millions of individuals and couples use IVF each year, the industry is still very loosely regulated. Every fertility clinic is impacted by a patchwork of various state and federal laws with different levels of penalties for misconduct. Consumers are supposed to be protected by the Fertility Clinic Success Rate and Certification Act of 1992. But the truth of the matter is that there are few serious legal consequences for firms that don’t adhere to regulations. The greatest mechanism for oversight and accountability remains civil claims by law firms that specialize in fertility law.

At our firm, we are guided by the belief that every person deserves the
chance to build their family without fear of mistreatment. That’s why we are
here to advocate on behalf of all who have been victimized. Our goal is to
provide you with the legal support and guidance necessary to help you get the
best outcome possible. If you or someone that you know has been affected by
IVF negligence or misconduct, our team of IVF negligence attorneys at
Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. is here to help. You can contact us anytime for a
