Fight Back with the Help of Our North Indiana Medical Malpractice Attorneys

In March of 2018, University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio experienced a malfunction in one of their egg and embryo freezers, affecting over 2,000 specimens. This example of hospital negligence has affected the futures of over 500 families.

The Financial Toll

The egg retrieval process costs a significant amount of money. According to FertilityIQ, the average cost of the egg removal process averages about $16,000. Additionally, the hospital charges a yearly fee for cryogenic storage. This fee is supposed to ensure the safety of your eggs or embryos for future use. Unfortunately, for the patients of University Hospitals, this was not the case.

If you paid University Hospitals for the maintenance and care of your specimens, the freezer malfunction could be considered a direct breach of care and a brash case of hospital negligence. Contact us for help.

The Emotional Implications

By choosing to store your eggs or embryos through this freezing process, you are entrusting part of your biological lineage to medical professionals. Each embryo or group of eggs is your chance for a future family and, in some instances, the only chance for a biological child.

The freezer failure at University Hospitals has disrupted the future of over 500 families, including patients unable to conceive naturally. If you were one of them, do not hesitate to involve an attorney who can help you seek compensation for the pain and suffering this may have caused you.
