Delay in diagnosis of twisted testicle results in its removal £11,250

We acted for a young man (aged 13 at the relevant time) who attended his local hospital complaining of left side abdominal pain. There was also tenderness in the area around his left testicle. His treating doctor suspected that he had an infection. It later transpired, however, that he had, in fact, a twisted testicle and due to the delay in diagnosis, this had to be removed. Not surprisingly, he was psychologically damaged by this episode. Clinical negligence proceedings were issued at Court and we were able to negotiate a settlement on his behalf.
