Atlanta Area Man Receives $9 Million Award After Being Scarred by Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

53-year-old John Henry Howard of Ellenwood, Georgia received a jury award of more than $9 million in a suit filed against medical care provider Boston Men’s Health Center. Howard’s suit claimed that the clinic, which specializes in the treatment of male sexual dysfunction, supplied him with a proprietary drug that caused scarring and other complications in his genital area. After injecting the drug as he had been instructed to by clinic personnel, Howard began experiencing pain, lesions, and other symptoms. However, he did not immediately seek medical care, as he claimed to have been confused by the instructions provided by the clinic.

A DeKalb County jury agreed with Howard’s claims and awarded punitive and health care damages in excess of $9 million.
