Confidential Six-Figure Settlement for Failure to Diagnose a Strangulated Testicle
- Date: Summer 2015
- Attorney: Jeffrey J. Zenna
- Settlement: Confidential
- Practice Areas: Medical Malpractice
Mr. Zenna settled a case on behalf of a child against a urologist. The boy was injured riding a bicycle and presented to an emergency room complaining of testicular pain. An ultrasound was performed that showed decreased blood flow to the testicle. The boy was discharged. He later returned to the hospital the following day, at which time he was diagnosed with testicular torsion (strangulation). Unfortunately, it was too late, and the child lost a testicle. This claim settled for six figures in a confidential settlement.
