Summary

The claimant was diagnosed with testicular cancer and prior to receiving treatment, as this would render him infertile, deposited three samples of semen in the defender’s facility. The sperm was deposited to preserve his ability to become a father following the treatment through IVF. However, due to a mishap with the storage vessel and resultant inability to safely use the semen provided, he claimed for the loss of the chance of fatherhood and compensation for the distress and depressions arising from this.
