An Embryo Mix Up Would Involve Lawyers

Embryo mix-ups at fertility clinics are extremely uncommon. However, when they do happen in a state like New York, medical malpractice lawyers are often involved.

A doctor had given Carolyn Savage the wrong embryo and she became pregnant with Paul and Shannon Morell’s child.

The Savages say the fertility clinic transferred the wrong frozen embryo to Carolyn’s womb in early February. Ten days later, Sean Savage got a call from a doctor saying his wife was pregnant with someone else’s child. Due to her religious beliefs, Carolyn decided to carry the baby to term knowing that she would have to give the baby up once it was born.

According to the New York Post , the accident was caused by human error at the lab.

In 2004, a California woman was awarded $1 million to settle a medical malpractice lawsuit against a fertility doctor who accidentally gave her the wrong embryos and hid the mistake.

New York medical malpractice lawyers know that damages in such cases are extreme. “It’s hard to pre-determine what the loss, grief and emotional damage this would cause in New York,” said medical malpractice lawyer David Perecman.
