In Vitro Fertilization Malpractice Lawyers
Couples that are unable to conceive a kid the natural way will frequently pursue in vitro fertilization (IVF). An egg and sperm are combined in the laboratory and then an embryo is implanted into the woman’s uterus during this procedure. This may be a fantastic option for many couples. However, the IVF procedure does not always go as planned. A pair who went to IVF was recently shocked to discover that their embryo had been inserted into a woman else’s womb, and that they were now carrying children from a different relationship. The couple said they intended to sue the fertility clinic responsible for the serious medical blunder.

Are You The Victim Of A Botched IVF Procedure?
When a woman undergoes IVF, or in vitro fertilization, the complex process generally goes well, despite the fact that it does not result in a pregnancy. However, our attorneys are aware that mistakes can happen during such treatments. A mistake in a medical procedure has resulted in the implantation of one woman’s egg into another woman’s uterus. Others have resulted in the fertilization of a woman’s eggs by the wrong sperm.
These major mistakes might result in the loss of a child, emotional distress, and, in the end, even aspirations for many families. If you or your spouse have been a victim of an unsuccessful in-vitro fertilization treatment, Texas Personal Injury Lawyers can handle these difficult situations.
IVF And Medical Malpractice: What Are The Risks?
Many couples struggling to conceive naturally choose in vitro fertilization (IVF) as a way to have children. There are several potential risks associated with IVF, just like any other surgical procedure. Some of these risks are the same as those associated with other medical operations, such as medication and surgical mistakes. There are certain hazards connected to IVF treatment that are comparable to those linked with other medical procedures.
Here are a few examples of problems that IVF treatment might cause. They are grounds for medical malpractice claims if they occur as a result of negligent care by a medical professional.
- Poor Treatment Management Can Result In Injury Or Health Problems
When you have IVF treatment, you do it under the watch of a doctor. When a physician does not closely oversee an IVF strategy, bad mistakes can be made. The following are some examples of these kinds of errors:
- The embryo implanting in the recipient’s fallopian tube, resulting in an ectopic pregnancy;
- Missing signs of distress or potential birth defects from the fetus;
- Losing or destroying gametes or fertilized embryos from the couple;
- Failing to perform necessary tests like per-implantation genetic testing;
- If the couple works with an egg or sperm donor, failing to properly screen the donor; and
- Inseminating the woman with the wrong sperm.
- Mix-ups Can Result In A Woman Carrying Another Couple’s Embryo
Physician negligence might result in a fertilized egg being mixed up with another and the incorrect embryo being implanted into the woman’s womb, resulting in discomfort to both the couple and any potential right recipients of their baby. Although this is unusual, it can happen.
- Unintended Multiple Pregnancies Can be Dangerous
Multiple pregnancies, those with more than one embryo, and particularly twin births, have a higher risk of problems than single-embryo pregnancies. Multiple embryos are commonly made to be used in each IVF cycle. When too many embryos are implanted, both the mother’s health and the vitality of the baby are at risk. Couples must frequently choose whether to abort one or more of the embryos, which may be avoided by better medical supervision.
Several Mistakes Can Occur During In Vitro Fertilization
There have been an increasing number of in vitro fertilization failures in the United States and across the world over the last several years. Several sorts of mistakes have been reported, including:
- Identification mix-ups involving eggs and sperm
- Wrongly implanted embryos — in one case, a woman carried another couple’s child and then had to give the baby to the biological parents after giving birth
- Mishaps involving the preservation and storage of eggs and embryos
- In one case, a clinic failed to screen a donor who was a carrier of Fragile X syndrome.
- Improper screening of sperm donors
When you go through with IVF, you know that the doctor and medical staff are qualified and experienced in the procedure. When something goes wrong, the consequences can be disastrous. Our attorneys will ensure that the correct party is held accountable for negligence.
