Northwestern Destroys Sperm Samples

On October 15, 2012, Pfaff & Gill, Ltd. filed suit on behalf of a testicular cancer survivor against Northwestern Medical Hospital and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation.  Northwestern’s cryopreservation storage tank failed, destroying the sperm samples inside.  For more information see Chicago Tribune Article; Complaint at Law. 

JOHN ANONYMOUS is just one of many men whose samples were destroyed by Northwestern’s negligence.  Pfaff & Gill, Ltd. continues to investigate cases for others whose sperm samples were similarly destroyed.  The lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Law Division, case number 2012 L 11738.  This was the first case arising out of this failure to be filed in the Law Division.  Contact Pfaff & Gill, Ltd. if you received a letter from Northwestern advising that your sample was destroyed – (312) 828-9666.
