On March 4th 2018 the Pacific Fertility Center of San Francisco noticed a nitrogen tank had failed. One of two incidents to occur within the United States in a short span, it resulted in the possible loss of thousands of embryos and eggs contained within the tank.
The Pacific Fertility Center described the events as a “unfortunate incident”, for the hundreds of families being notified it has meant coping with the loss of family those embryos and eggs represented.
The attorneys at Levin Simes Abrams already represent families dealing with the destruction of embryos and eggs at Pacific Fertility Center.
