Seven-figure settlement for family of patient fatally injured by bowel complications.

A patient, who was a medical doctor by profession, was hospitalized and being treated for a medical condition unrelated to the bowel when he developed a bowel complication that necessitated a code call. Neither the bowel complication nor the code call was managed in accordance with appropriate standards of care, and as a result the patient died. On behalf of his surviving relatives, Kolsby Gordon attorneys negotiated a seven-figure settlement.
