Supreme Court awards €173,500 to surgical error victim

A woman who was the victim of a botched surgery which left her unable to have sex from the age of 50, is to receive 173,000 euros in compensation following an appeal with EU courts.

Portuguese judges had originally said that after a certain point a person’s “sex life isn’t as important as it is at an earlier age” and added the desire for sex “diminishes as you get older”, and thereby decided to greatly reduce her initial compensation claim.
