A 47-year-old wife and mother of four died of a pulmonary embolism after two surgeons failed to take preventative steps to avoid a deep vein blood clot following abdominal surgery despite the fact that she was at high risk for development of a clot. The patient, who had undergone a partial colectomy, was not prescribed medication to prevent the deep vein blood clot from either of her two surgeons, and died due to a saddle embolus as a result. Daniel M. Hodes with Hodes Milman represented the plaintiff and her family; the case was settled for $525,000.
