These objective findings confirmed three facts: 1) that there was significant, permanent and painful damage to Mr. Greene’s left testicle; 2) that this damage was the result of the trauma in the June 12, 2004 collision between the defendant’s vehicle and Mr. Greene’s motorcycle; and 3) that the injury was permanent. This testimony was uncontradicted.
The defendant complains Mr. Greene’s injuries as “only soft tissue injuries” which do not warrant reasonable compensation. The complaints of the defendant are directly in conflict with the uncontroverted testimony of the only medical witnesses who were called to testify at the trial. Dr. Black concluded that Mr. Greene sustained multiple injuries, including a pelvic bone bruise and micro-fractures – these are not mere soft tissue injuries. These injuries are the result of damages to Mr. Greene’s pelvic bone and are long-lasting.
Dr. Black testified that Mr. Greene will experience significant pain, swelling, stiffness and flare-ups from these injuries for three to four more years – until 2011 or 2012. Simple math shows that these injuries will have a duration of at least seven or eight years. For more information you are welcome to contact Sacramento personal injury lawyer, Moseley Collins.
Dr. O’Callahan testified that Mr. Greene sustained a permanent, painful and extremely personal injury. Mr. Greene’s left testicle was damaged and, as of 2008, had lost 50% of its mass. Mr. Greene testified that many of the personal and intimate details of his life now were painful. He was unable to have sexual relations with his wife, Kim Greene, for three months, and the sexual relationship with his wife continued to suffer since the car collision.
Mr. Greene had painful crections, pain on urination, and pain upon exertion. These are not “mere soft tissue injuries” that will resolve with the passage of a few weeks or months or years. The traumatic damage to Mr. Greene’s left testicle is permanent and worsening. The testicle was reduced in size from 30% of normal to 50% of normal in just the past several years. Dr. O’Callahan testified that this damage may continue to worsen, but will not reverse.
