Defense Verdict on All Claims in Case Alleging Unnecessary Colon Resection Surgery
February 10, 2015 — After obtaining dismissal of the original client, a gastroenterology clinic, Tim Allen was retained as trial co-counsel for the remaining defendant, Surgical Associates, PLLC. Because the pathology report for a removed section of colon indicated the patient was cancer-free, he claimed that he had undergone an unnecessary colon resection surgery, with associated long-term complications, and sought more than $2 million in damages. After a hard fought four-week trial, Tim and his co-counsel achieved a defense verdict on all claims. Thurston County Sup. Ct. Case No. 12-2-01791-1.
