A Pennsylvania man was awarded $870,000 after an unfortunate error during surgery.
According to court documents obtained by the Washington Post, Hanes went to J.C Blair Memorial in 2013 to undergo a surgical removal of his right testicle to alleviate pain from a previous injury. However, that's when things didn't go as planned, as Long had operated on the wrong testicle, removing the perfectly fine left testicle instead of the right one that Hanes was attempting to receive treatment.
A Huntingdon County jury sided with Haines and awarded him $A1.15 million - $A815,000 for pain and suffering, and a further $A330,000 for punitive damages.
The jury of 11 women and one man found Long was "recklessly indifferent" after the two-and-a-half day civil trial finished Wednesday. This was the first time in over 25 years that a plaintiff was awarded money in a medical malpractice case, according to PennLive.
The doctor is no longer performing surgeries, according to PennLive.
The case of Hanes and Dr. As a result of the procedure, Hanes now lives with the same painful testicle, and will have to decide if he wants to live with it or have it removed. Long was unable to accurately identify the damaged testicle and ended up removing the wrong one. "Long. He wanted to relieve the pain", Braden Lepisto, Hanes's lawyer, said.
Steven Hanes, 54, from Mount Union, Pennsylvania, sued Dr V Spencer Long, 77, after a 2013 operation.
According to the Daily Hornet, Long no longer practices surgery and is now also being sued by the family of a patient who died after an operation.
The lawyer represnting Haines said his client remains in pain and has a "debilitating fear" of going for surgery after the medical malpractice he had suffered. The attorney says Haines will need testosterone treatment for the rest of his life if he loses the remaining testicle.
