$1.5 Million | Deep Vein Thrombosis

$1.5 Million | Deep Vein Thrombosis

$1.5 Million for the surviving family of a 62-year-old male who presented with swelling in his lower leg two weeks after undergoing open-heart bypass surgery. The cardiologist claimed that on physical examination he had successfully ruled out the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis. Two days later, the patient presented to a hospital with significant shortness of breath and died shortly thereafter of a pulmonary embolus. At autopsy, thrombi were found in both calves.
