Bowel Injury Lawyers in Salt Lake City

Bowel injuries can result in devastating and potentially life-threatening consequences due to such serious medical malpractice. If a bowel injury is left untreated, inflammation, infection and extreme pain can result due to the spillage of intestinal content into the lining that forms the abdominal cavity.

When this occurs and goes undiagnosed or untreated, an abscess may form that requires surgical intervention. If the condition continues to worsen, it may form a fistula, allowing feces and other fluids different ways to escape through the body, putting a bowel injury’s internal organs – such as the pancreas, kidneys, liver, gall bladder, and reproductive organs – at immediate risk.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Peter W. Summerill know that failing to treat the condition can bring about severe sepsis (infection) spreading throughout the body and blood and may even result in death. In other cases, severe deterioration of the colon and bowel may require removal of the bowel to the extent that patients are left with a permanent stoma and the inability to pass a stool as normal people do. Contact our firm immediately if you or a loved one has suffered a result of a doctor’s failure to diagnose or treat a bowel injury. You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
