Pursuing Justice for Victims of Reproductive Injuries in Illinois and Throughout the Country

Advances in the area of reproductive technology have been a major benefit to many couples. In particular, an increasing number of individuals are waiting longer to get married, and many women wait until they are well-established in their careers before having children. Many older women have been able to have children with the help of procedures such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Although reproductive technology has been a boon for many, some have also suffered because of the mistakes of professionals involved in these procedures. If you or a loved one has suffered from a reproductive injury, it is important to speak with an experienced reproductive law attorney so you understand your rights and options.

Medical Negligence in Reproductive Law

Malpractice in fertility cases can take many forms. Some of the most common include:

  • Infertility Injuries: Negligence on the part of medical professionals during pregnancy has been known to not only cause infant injuries and death, but in some cases, render the mother infertile and unable to have more children. There are other instances in which routine IVF procedures go awry, causing serious injuries (and in some cases wrongful death) to the mother.
  • Embryo Mistransportation: In-vitro fertilization mistakes such as implanting the wrong sperm or eggs can lead to severe consequences; such as unknowingly carrying another couple's child, having a child with a party you did not consent to, and having a child with a birth defect or disorder that should never have occurred.
  • Embryo Destruction/Loss: Medical negligence has sometimes been responsible for embryos being misplaced or mistakenly destroyed.
  • Side Effects of Fertility Drugs: There are several fertility drugs that have played a significant role in helping women become pregnant. Medical professionals must ensure, however, that their patients are properly screened before prescribing any drugs. Otherwise, disastrous side effects may ensue.

Breakthroughs and advances in reproductive technologies are helping many women fulfill their dreams of becoming mothers. There are others, however, who have suffered injury because of the negligence of health care professionals they trusted to properly administer their procedures. When this occurs, it is important to hold the responsible parties fully accountable.
